PTI MIM #250 Masked Background

2016-05-27 07.39.13-2

I'm playing along with this week's Make It Monday #250 at Papertrey Ink. It's all about masked backgrounds this week. I taped off the edges, sponged Distress Ink, then added the sentiment from PTI Choose Joy - I thought it could work for a graduation, right? Then added the strip of black, with white embossed "Graduate" from PTI Paper Clippings: Congratulations.

Thanks for stopping by!

Playing along with Freshly Made Sketch #228

I loved this week's sketch from Freshly Made Sketch and had an idea right away.

I used Papertrey Ink's new anniversary set, Painted Petals along with some of their printed paper in Bright Buttercup for the background. I sponged just a bit of blue distress ink along the top of the card for some depth and color.

I love it and think it's so cheery! Thanks for visiting!

Papertrey SAF bridal challenge

One more card tonight for Papertrey Ink's Stamp-a-faire event. Scroll down to see my other two cards for the mix+match challenge and the patterns challenge.

This challenge was to use all white to create a bridal card. I used my Turning a New Leaf stamp set with some Perfect Pearls. The LOVE stamp is a rubber stamp I've had for ages and I stamped that on some vellum and then attached the vellum with my sewing machine. I love the shimmer from the Perfect Pearls - very cool effect. Lastly, a few bits of diamond bling finishes it off.

PTI Stamp-a-faire Patterns challenge

Here is the card I made for the Patterns Challenge for Papertrey Ink's stampafaire event. I used Pattern 10 from Melissa Phillips. I love how she uses tags on cards but mine never seem to look quite right and I think I figured out Melissa's trick - she trims her card size so that the proportion works. Kind of a huge "duh" moment for me.

Here is the pattern:

And you can see Melissa's gorgeous card here.

And here's my take on Melissa's pattern:

PTI Stampafaire - Mix+Match challenge

Hi! Dropping in to post some projects I made on Saturday for Papertrey Ink's Stamp-a-faire event. This first card is for the Mix+Match challenge. Betsy taught us some tips on how to mix pattern paper successfully. I'm not sure how successful this was but I made it work. I do love the tag but the jury is still out on the card as a whole.

Freshly Made Sketches #193

Hello again! Another great sketch this week at Freshly Made Sketches. I'm hoping to get another card in before the challenge ends. But let's start with this card.

I blended some Mama Elephant inks (Piggy Bank and Tutti Frutti) and added a strip of pattern paper. To mimic the bow on the challenge sketch I add some (very) old brads from my stash. If I were to give this to my hubby he wouldn't appreciate a bow or ribbon. :)

Case this Sketch #129

Playing along with this week's challenge over at CAS(E) this Sketch.

Lots of white space on this one! I have made lots of cards with flowers recently and challenged myself to try something else. I was flipping through my stamps and saw my arrow set (Get to the Point by PTI). I thought the polka dot arrow was fun and added a fun Paper Smooches sentiment to go with it. I backed my white panel on a MFT Sour Apple card base.
