PTI - Stamp-A-Faire 2016 - Color Blocking

Jennifer Kinney_SAF2016_Color Blocking_1

Another surprise technique! This was outside my comfort zone but I had some time this afternoon and decided to give it a try. I'm so glad I did. I just adore how this turned out.

It's hard to tell in the photos but the sentiment is on its own strip and is heat embossed - that little bit of shine is a great match for the mod look of the stamps above it. Both the telephone block and the sentiment strip are popped up on foam tape.

I used a gob of Papertrey Ink inks and the Heart-2-Heart #4 set.

PTI - Stamp-A-Faire Masterpiece Inspirations

I love happy sunflowers so couldn't resist using Laurie's inspiration from Van Gogh's sunflowers.

I used Simple Sunflower and then "watercolored" my stamped image with clean water to give them a watercolor look - love this technique! Used Zigs for the background.

I've had this pineapple (Concord & 9th) sitting on my desk for a couple weeks and decided it would be perfect to try Melissa's inspiration piece from Kimble.

I used Scarlet Jewel Ink on Pure Poppy paper with a gingham background stamp to create the bottom border. I used a small strip of black bitty dot paper on top of the red gingham, and the awesome Tag Sale: Quilted die.

Thanks for stopping by and checking out my projects. Stamp-a-Faire is always a fun day to try new things. Love it! :)

PTI - Stamp-A-Faire 2016 - Gilded in Gold

This project surprised me. I LOVED working with the gold leaf. I wanted to gold-ify everything in sight. ;)

I used the heart from Shaker shapes, the butterfly from Life is Beautiful, and a sentiment from an Ellen Hutson set - isn't it a perfect sentiment for this project? I thought so!

PTI Stamp-A-Faire 2016 - Starry Night

The first project of the day was to try to create a starry night. I was worried halfway through this project because it was looking like a hot mess. But I persevered and I actually really like how it turned out! :) I'm not crazy about my sequin placement - those are always a challenge for me - but it will do.

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!
