Papertrey Ink MIM #149: Glitter Embellishments

Happy Sunday sweet friends!! It's been a great weekend and I am so excited to say I've been a bit crafty!!  I got my new PTI Doodlie-do stamps and just had to make a quick project and since this week's MIM project had to do with Glitter, I didn't need any more persuasaion!!

Make It Monday #149: Glitter Embellishments

I started off by stamping the Doodlie-Do flowers onto vellum with Versamark Ink and the added fine white embossing powder and heat set them.  I die cut the image with Sweet Blush and Simply Chartreuse papers and layered the embossed images on top.  I added coarse crystal glitter to all of the centers to go with the theme of the challenge.  To make the base panel, I picked up some Heidi Swapp Blush Colorshine and Stencils at Michael's and sprayed the the diagonal lines onto Stamper's Select white paper.  I am just loving the stenciled technique for backgrounds!! It's so fun and so easy to create custom backgrounds for any project!!

Supplies Used:
PTI Stamper's Select White, Simply Chartreuse,  and Sweet Blush Cardstock
PTI Vellum Cardstock
Heidi Swapp Stencil
Heidi Swapp Blush Color Shine
PTI Doodlie-Do Stamps and Dies
Martha Stewart Crystal Glitter

Wishing you a creative day!!

Papertrey Ink January 2014 Blog Hop


Good Morning Friends!!  I am so excited to participate in today's Papertrey Ink Blog Hop!! Today's challenge tickles my heart as you know, if you've followed my blog for any length of time, that Pink is my absolute favorite color!!  I may just have to craft the day away as I am in total pink bliss and I am carried away with the possibilities!!!  
The-Challenge
With Valentine's Day rapidly approaching, it is the perfect time to pull out all of your favorite pink supplies and put them to good use!  Your challenge this month is to create a card only using the color pink with the option to use neutrals (such as white, cream, gray, black or kraft).  With all of the different shades of pink to work with, there are all kinds of creative possibilities!  Keep in mind that your project can be for any occasion, as long as you use pink!  We look forward to seeing your project (and the prettiest inLinkz list EVER!) today!
and here's my take on the challenge:
I was totally in a white space mood and was totally inspired by this week's Case 
Study #175 Challenge!!  I started with PTI's Stamper's Select and decided that I would try out the Tipped Tops technique by gluing the layered panel at an angle on the card base and cutting the edges with my scissors.  I adhered the panel with 3D squares to give it some depth.  The focal point was made using the Limitless Layers Hearts dies and The Best is Yet to Bet Stamps and dies.  Love the pink, white and vellum combination!  Totally makes my heart sing!!  I fussy cut the One Liner Love Die and added the Wonderful Words You.  I do have to admit, the original Wonderful Words dies are my favorites! I wish PTI would make more like this!!!


PTI Supplies Used:
Stamper's Select White Cardstock
Limitless Layers Hearts Dies
The Best Is Yet To Be stamps and dies

Pink Persimmon Sewing Notions and Classic Pattern

Happy Friday Dear Friends!! Are you ready for some classic vintage goodness?  I am loving Pink Persimmon's new Classic Patterns and Sewing Notions stamp sets!!  They are absolutely awesome and very easy to work with!!  I made a rather clean and classic card using these stamps and it's one of my favorites of the year!!
I embossed the Classic Pattern stamp onto some vellum.  This technique makes my heart so happy and even happier in gold!!  I also embossed the sweet little button under the scissors on vellum in gold!  The measuring tape and pink button are embossed using pink zing powder!  Gotta love pink embossed images!  I also embossed the scissors in gold onto white paper.  It's a little more crisp than the embossed images on the vellum are.  The spool topper is stamped with black ink on gold paper and the effect is exactly what I was looking for!! Love the gold and pink combination!!  Doesn't it make your heart sing???  I typed out the sentiment in PSE, printed it and then die cut the image.
Supplies used:
Pink Persimmon Classic Pattern and Sewing Notions
Maggie Holmes Flea Market by Crate Paper patterned paper
Vellum Paper by Papertrey Ink
Fine Gold Embossing Powder
Bush Zing Embossing Powder
Sweet Blush ribbon Papertrey Ink
Stamper's Select White Cardstock

Thanks for stopping in!! I appreciate all of you who visit!!

CupCards to Go Valentine Kit Reveal

Happy Monday Friends!!  I am so excited to share my designs from the CupCards to Go Valentine's kit. This month's kit is absolutely amazing and filled with so many Valentine's Goodies, you'll be able to make a ton of Love-ly cards!!  From Shabby Chic goodness to CAS simplicity there's something for everyone!!

The first card I'm sharing with you tonight is my favorite of the bunch.  The rub ons that are included in the kit are a part of my focal point as well as the sweet layered heart and fussy cut birdies.  Love, love, love the little quote!!
The challenge this month was to create a pocket card to hold some of the fun little Love Notes that are included in the kit.
 When you take out the notes, you find a sweet little surprise!
 I was really in a Clean and Simple mode with this kit.  Love, love, love me some white space and there are plenty of embellishments to make a handful of CAS cards!!
This card was inspired by the sketch for this month.  I just had to put the embellishments toward the bottom corner rather than in the middle, I just couldn't help myself...wink, wink!  I layered several die cut hearts to make a nice thick embellishment.
Love, love, love this technique! The top layer is made from printed vellum and I do have to say that is my favorite paper in the kit!! Vellum is my new favorite!!
If you've followed my blog for any length of time, you know how much I love shaped cards.  The beautiful Turquoise bow totally inspired this card!!
The angled design has become one of my favorite go to sketches.  So quick and easy and effective too!!
These cards came together so easily and I have more ideas on tap using the goodies in this kit!! You're gonna love it!!

Thanks for stopping by and I wish you a wonderfully creative day!!
