Make A Wish

I was at a stamping retreat with some friends and borrowed every last one of the items on this card. heehee. It's good to have friends with different stuff than you so you can try it all out. And I must say I really want everything that I borrowed (of course.)

The balloons and sentiment are from Mama Elephant. I popped up the purple balloon and added some Wink of Stella to it. So sparkly IRL! The inks are the new Ranger dye inks. LOVED the bright, saturated color. However, be sure you really, really, really, REALLY clean your stamps after using them and before pressing in a different color ink because you'll likely still have color residue from the first ink. Love the colors, but just takes a little more maintenance for cleaning.

It's a banner day

I made this a month or two ago. I had lots of these little banners lying around and pulled them all together along with some bitty stamps in various stamp sets to make confetti. The banners and sentiment are from Papertrey's Heart-2-Heart series.

The gray is much darker and more legible IRL. It appears to have been washed out during the photographing of it. :)

I've been creating lots of cards. I'll try to do a better job of sharing them here! Thanks for stopping by.

PTI May Blog Hop

Thankfully it's a holiday here and I had some time today to create a card for Papertrey's blog hop.

The challenge was to use this photo below as a jumping off point for a card. I loved the rainbow of colors and the squares.

I had PTI's Building Blocks out on my desk and used that to create this quick card.

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.
