February PTI blog hop


Just dropping in to join the fun on this month's blog hop. The challenge was to create something with this stunning piece as inspiration.

I was drawn to the blues and purples and the white lines.

I started by smooshing some purple and blue Distress ink on my card front then heat embossing in white the banner stamps from Birthday Style.

I heat embossed my sentiment in black onto vellum and taped it on to my card front with washi tape. The balloon dies were stamped with a text background and a stripe background and then tied with some purple sparkly twine. For some reason the twine photographed as tan but really it's much lighter IRL.

PTI MIM #188

Just stopping in to share a card I made for this week's MIM - stamping ombre backgrounds. I just love this look! I looked and looked for a stamp that would work well with this technique and found this set of wavy lines in PTI's Circle Scribbles.

I had a little boo-boo on the bottom corner and covered it up with this cute heart from PTI's Love Lives Here. I stamped it in red, outlined it with my black pen, and then covered it with Glossy Accents. Just the perfect addition to this little card.

I popped up the center panel on pop-dots.

Blue cardstock is Bazzill Card Shoppe in Whirlypop - such a fun, bright blue!

Papertrey Ink October Blog Hop

Yea! I got a project done for the Papertrey Ink Blog Hop! One tag down, 50 more to go... :)


This month's challenge was to choose a color inspiration. I chose the one below. Not only was I inspired by the color, but also by the stripes.

First I stamped rows of stars from Around and About Sentiments in Pure Poppy (PTI), Fuschia (Fresh), Hawaiian Shores (PTI), and Basil (Fresh.) Then I die cut that using the Tag Sale 4 die. I also cut a second tag from vellum to layer on top.

I put some Glossy Accents around the edge and sprinkled on some "snow" from my Tinsel and Tags kit. I added a bow die cut, also from the Tinsel and Tags kit, from Raspberry Fizz, and tied it on with some baker's twine.

MIM #184 Dipped Die Cuts

Even though these balloons are not dipped in gold embossing powder like the MIM video, I still thought it was a pretty cool technique and I wanted to try it. So, I dipped some balloons in colored embossing powder. It's a fun look!

I used the balloon from PTI's Birthday Style. I used a curvy landscape die from Lawn Fawn and a sentiment from Paper Smooches. Embossing powder is from Zing. Cardstock is from PTI. Washi tape is at the top of the card.

You Totally Rock

I'm such a sucker for rainbows. I love them. They make me happy. And this new sentiment set Uplifters from Paper Smooches also makes me happy.

I used the trio star stamp from Papertrey's Out On A Limb to stamp all over this cardstock in a variety of ink colors. Aren't they pretty together? And then I used Bazzill Card Shoppe in Whirlypop for my sentiment strip.

I had lots of stars in my dish of die cuts (extras and rejects from previous projects.) And these three I stacked together, added a little Wink of Stella to the top one (of course) and voila!

Reverse Confetti - In A Big Way

I received this gorgeous In A Big Way Reverse Confetti sentiment set last month and I just love it!

I blended some Distress inks on my background and then stamped on top of that in black. I added a candle and topped it with my Wink of Stella pen (yes, again) and then some Glossy Accents. I then scored some lines around the edges and popped it up with foam tape onto my card base. I used Papertrey Ink's Basic Background: Super Stripes and some WPlus9 white ink to stamp some stripes on my card base. The stripes added some punch to the card - it was so plain otherwise.

Joy tag with Phrase Play #8

When I was on my crafty retreat last month I got to borrow this fabulous Phrase Play #8 die and the coordinating stamp set. I love it! It's my favorite one and I'm going to have to buy it for myself.

I cut the die from Raspberry Fizz cardstock and mounted it on Vintage Cream. I then trimmed around it (I looked in my stash for a mat that would fit or work and didn't have one so just used the good ol' trimmer. :) )

I added a bit of shimmer to the star with my Wink of Stella pen. Love that thing. My intent is to use this as a tag - punch a small hole in the top corner and thread it with some pretty baker's twine.
