Make it Monday Challenge and a Little Give Away!!!

Hi again dear friends!! I'm busy at work making goodies for the Farmer's Market and I thought it would be fun to do a midday post along with a little give away!!!  My first post for the day was a bimonthly Glitz Design post showcasing a little cookbook using Glitz Design Happy Travels papers. I do believe that the Happy Travels line was my favorite from all of the winter lines!!  Not only are the papers fabulous, the stamps are also fantastic!!!  I have an extra set of stamps and I would love to give them away to you!!!!

All you have to do is comment on this post and/or tell us what your favorite Glitz Design Product is by midnight Sunday, June 24th, and I will draw a winner on Monday, June 25th.

In the meantime, I have a Papertrey Ink Make it Monday Challenge Card to share with you!!

Here's the Challenge:

Make It Monday #71: Bordered Sentiments

and here's my take on the challenge:
I used Papertrey Ink's Crackled Stamp and Pretty Peonies Stamps along with MME Follow Your Heart Stamps by Rhonna Farrer and Prickley Pear's Clear Butterflies Stamp set.
Supplies Used:
PTI Inks:  Smokey Shadow, Sweet Blush, and Spring Moss
PTI Cardstock:  Stamper's Select White and Smokey Shadow

I look forward to giving away the Glitz Design Stamps!!!  I hope you play along!!!
Have a wonderful day,
Kristii

Oh, the peonies in black are BEAUTIFUL!!! I would never have thought to do that... I love how you used the crackled stamp to anchor everything too - I don't have that one yet (not ordering till SAF!), and I hope I remember what you did with it!! This is gorgeous!

Lovely card Kristii! I love the way you used those pretty peonies. The colours look great. And very clever use of the crackled stamp. I now regret not getting that. -- Irma

Your use of the crackle stamp is fantastic...now I think I will "need" that one! Beautiful flowers...along with the butterflies! Great MIM card.

Its gorgeous and I love the crackle stamp, so glad I ordered it. Who knew the black flowers would look so good… You did!

Joyce said...

This is absolutely gorgeous. I love how you have combined the peonies and the butterflies--and added some layers, too. Perfect twist to the MIM.

Mendi said...

Your card is stunning! Love the layering with the crackle stamp--Can't wait to order that one! :)

Love your card - the black peonies are gorgeous! And the crackle stamp in the background really sets it all off!

Your card is fabulous, I love how clean and simple it is.
My favorite Glitz product has to be the Happy travels line, both the papers and stamps. I love that it's versatile and can be used for making masculine cards and projects, it's hard to find stamps that are not overly cutsey or flowery.
These are perfect, I would love to win your stamps.

This is just so beautiful...I love the little row of bees under your sentiment, just so clever and stunning.

Kathy Mc said...

What a great choice of stamps and colors ~ simply stunning! Should I even admit I've never heard of Glitz stamps before. Looks like a cool stamp set though and a fun giveaway!

E.T. said...

so gorgeous. i think i need to add this gorgeous stamp to my wishlist (the flower one)

LindaR said...

Absolutely stunning card!
I don't have any Glitz stamps yet, but I LOVE that set!!

Jessica said...

I love the simplicity and classiness of this card. Sometimes I get so carried away with embellishments that I forgot how beautiful a graphic design like this can be. Being a romantic through and through, I have to say that my favorite Glitz design is Beautiful Dreamer. So girly and gorgeous!

Lindsey said...

Absolutely beautiful card! I just love it.

Jodi_E said...

Purplish black flowers who knew. I love the technique here but the flowers are a stand out with the pale pink. Nice!

Renee said...

This is gorgeous!!
Those flowers really stand out in black...
so elegant!

krismybliss said...

What a beautiful card Kristii! Love how you layered the peonie over the sentiment panel. It really makes the card stand out. Thanks for the chance to win the cool stamp set!

heather said...

All of your creations are beautiful and this one is no exception. THank you for the give away opportunity. That set would be a great versatile set to own.

Terstamper said...

Gorgeous card! I've never seen the Glitz stamps before but after seeing this set, Happy Travel, I'm going to look at their site.
