Celebrating Papertrey Ink 2012

 10th Anniversary - Sending Hugs Card

See what Lizzie did click here

I love the soft look of the cascading flowers  and I wanted to recreate this card as soon as I saw it. 

I don't have a scalloped edge die that cuts like this one, so I used a scalloped border and just cut the sides.  I place that panel on a base of white card stock that I sponged with Dusty Concord Distressed ink.

For the cascading flowers, of course I went to the Garden Gate stamp set.  I have been getting a lot of use from that set for these challenges. 

The heart is a die from DieNamics  and it is cut from Recollections, Painted Fancy.  The dots sparkle. Finally the Die cut sentiment is from Big Hugs. 

Here is my take on Lizzie's card.

Thanks for stopping to take a closer look.  I enjoy your comments and they make my day.

Another card for the celebration Challenge at Papertrey Ink.  This time I did a CASE of Nichole Heady.  This is her card. Click Here


I made my card a Birthday card as I sure need more of those these days.

I used the Scene it: Celebration stamp, along with the Stamping Simply Swoosh both from Papertrey Ink.  I stamped the stars and heat embossed with silver.  Really better to see than the picture.  There is a layer of fun foam under the design paper with is from Recollections Painted Fancy.  Thanks for stopping by, there will be more posted soon.

Seize The Birthday - Inlay die cuts

It s time for another Challenge at Seize the Birthday!


Our toppings are Inlay Die Cuts

           Of course if you are not a toppings kind of person,  
just make it a birthday card.

                                   Here is my example.

The ingredients: 
Gina K Designs card stock in White
PTI die, What the Doodle Butterfly
Sparkle paper and scraps of colored paper
DieNamics Dies, Happy Trio and Stitched Rectangle Frame

Sentiment stamp, Clearly Besotted A Little Sentimental.

I simply die cut HAPPY in the white panel and then cut it again in the color paper scraps.  I then cut the letters apart and put them like puzzle pieces into the white.  For the butterfly, I cut the circle out of sparkle paper, placed the butterfly die over the circle, where I wanted it and cut again. I then colored the circle blue with Zig markers and didn't like the results.  So I added yellow to make the green sparkly that you see.  I like that better.

Don't forget, we have a Special Party Guest too.  Her name is Rahmat Goose and you will find her designs here.   Check out what all of the other designers have done Seize the Birthday Challenge

Celebrating Past, Present and Future 2011

A quick post again today, with the card that I did for this continuing challenge at Papertrey Ink.
It sure ahs been a fun one as I have had to use my stamps and dies in different ways.  It really has opened up a whole new world.  Seriously there is so much out there to challenge us in many different ways.
Here is Melissa's card that I was inspired by to make my card. You can find it HERE scroll down a bit, it is there.

Celebrating Papertrey Ink 2010

Another day of Celebrating the Past Present and Future at Papertrey Ink!  Today I am CASEing Debbie Olsen.  Here is her CARD

I have been having fun going through my PTI stamps and dies to recreate the cards that I have been doing.  This one was a bit harder for me.  I made a card that was similar, but changed up the colors and used the Pretty Petals stamp set.  I believer it was a free stamp that I got with an order. The sentiment is from Borders and Corners Mini Stamp set.

Hope you like it.

I used Kraft, White, and Cherry Red card stock, from GIKD.
Cherry Red ink and some ribbon and a pearly from my stash.  That's it!
I am sure that I will be comtinuing to enter these fun challenges this week at PTI's Celebration.
