Papertrey Ink Make It Monday - #206: STAMPING AND MIXING PATTERNS

Happy Sunday dear friends!!  I hope you have enjoyed your weekend!!  I haven't been feeling too well lately, but I was able to take some time to spend time with my kids,  Spending time with family definitely makes this mom happy and helps to heal what ails you!!  I was able to spend some time today working on Papertrey Ink's Make it Monday Challenge #206 - Stamping and Mixing Paper.  Danielle Flanders shares with us how to create and mix patterned papers.  She is amazing!! Here's the challenge:
--Create a project utilizing your take on the challenge. Your project must use at least one Papertrey product and at least three stamped patterns.

Here's my take on the challenge:
 I used this photo as inspiration to create my patterned papers:
Dyptique + Jonathan Adler
These are the papers I created:
I used Background Basics: Super Stripes and black ink for the first pattern.  I used a Tim Holtz Stamp and black ink for the second pattern.  To create the third pattern I used The Sweet Life stamps and stamped them Sweet Blush Ink on Sweet Blush paper.  The next pattern was created  by stamping leaves from Garden Grace on Simply Chartreuse paper using Versamark Ink.  I love those little leaves.  The final pattern was embossed with gold embossing powder using the Crackled stamp.  I love all of these patterns and colors!  So Shabby and very chic!!

I used the You've Been Framed: Oval Die and cut out the various patterns and layered them all on a Smokey Shadow card base.  The florals and dies cuts are stamped using Sweet Blush and Simply Chartreuse Ink.  The sentiment from Brushed Blooms was stamped in Black and Soft Stone.  I added a Hug Snug Seam Binding bow, a strip of striped patterned paper, a strip of gold paper and a little scalloped strip as the final touches.  Such a fun card!! I love all these new stamps and dies from Papertrey Ink!!!

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you have a fabulous week!!!

Make It Monday #204 - Watercolor Smooshing

Hi there dear friends!  It's Sunday night and I finally finished my Papertrey Ink Make It Monday Challenge - Watercolor Smooshing.  Here's my take on the Challenge:
I used Hibiscus Burst and Summer Sunrise Ink for the smooshing and I used a punch to punch out my butterflies from the smooshed paper.  What a fun technique and if you've never smooshed before check out Betsy's video for more!
 I used some PTI Banner Dies and printable paper from Melstampz to create the banner.
I die cut the PTI Block Alphas from PTI Silver Cardstock and Double Sided Foam Adhesive sheets and layered them onto PTI a Doily Details Die.
The florals were stamped using PTI Bitty Bouquet stamps and Dies.  These florals are my new favorite stamps and dies!! They are absolutely beautiful!!
I added a double layered border at the top of each of the banners using PTI Heart Border dies in Silver and Stamper's Select Cardstock.  
I added some little antennae to the butterflies using black cardstock and PTI Be Happy Dies.  I also added some rainstones to the butterflies for fun.
I tied the banners together using white Hug Snug Ribbon.
 I used my brand new MISTI to stamp all the flowers!  What an awesome tool!! If you haven't heard about the new MISTI tool, you are definitely missing out!! It is definitely the Most Incredible Stamp Tool Invented!
Thanks for stopping by!!!  I hope you have a wonderful week!!

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Anything Girly or Feminine

Happy Friday!!! I have a fun and easy little card to share with you this evening using Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Anything Girly or Feminine.  My sweet girlie has a baby shower to go to for a friend who is having twins.  I wanted a quick and easy card so I could take it to her tomorrow morning before we go on a hike.  I chose this card by Maile Belles as my inspiration for today's card using Papertrey Ink's Swoosh Stamps and Dies.
I die cut the patterned paper with the Swoosh die and stamped the Swoosh sentiment onto my card base with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  I stamped the babies onto white cardstock and then I fussy cut them out.  I stamped the blankets with PTI Hibiscus Burst and Spring Rain ink.  I added a little seam binding bow with a pearl to add a sweet little touch.  The paper is from Betsy Veldman's Beautiful Brushstrokes Make It Market kit.
Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful evening!!
