Thanks for stopping by!

CAS-ual Friday #100

Hello All!

Today I am playing along with CAS-ual Fridays blog challenge #100! For this challenge, they provided the following tic-tac-toe grid and we had to choose one line of it.
I went with polka dots, square card, and birthday.
I used my new Papertrey Ink stamp set: Birthday Style. I love the balloon stamp in it!

For this card, I started by stamping a subtle background stamp in the center. Then I stamped the balloons on white paper and fussy cut them out. Using them for positioning, I stamped the strings and then glued down the balloons. I painted them with diamond glaze and finished with the sentiment.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Supplies
Paper: Authentique- free bird; white scraps
Stamps: PTI- Birthday Style, Modern Wood Mats
Ink: PTI- ripe avocado, fine linen, true black
Other: Judi Kins- diamond glaze

Cards as Gifts - Modern Basics Series (3)

Hi All!

Happy Wednesday! Today I have the third card in my Modern Basics series that I'm working on to give as a gift on Mother's Day.
In this card I wanted to make the sentiment very strong. Since I was stamping on top of other stamping, I double stamped the black sentiment with the help of my stamp-a-ma-jig. I also had to slightly trim one side down because I wasn't quite centered.

Thanks for stopping by today!

Supplies
Paper: white card stock
Stamps: PTI- modern basics, think big favorites #2
Ink: PTI- true black, simply chartreuse, berry sorbet
Other: corner rounder

Moxie Fab Gift Tag Challenge

Hello All!

Today I'm playing along with the fabulous Moxie Fab World: 350 Cards & Gifts Week- The Gift Tag Challenge. I created a birthday tag with a couple of new stamp sets I just got from Papertrey Ink (Background Basics Chevron Strips, Wonderful Words Birthday Style, and Birthday Style).


This started with white paper :) I found that building the background was more challenging than I expected. I started in the middle, making sure that the first stripe was horizontally lined up properly, and then the subsequent stripes were lined up to the first. It's not 100% perfect, but once the focal point was there I didn't notice it so much.

On the candle flames I placed some diamond glaze using a paint brush. With the smaller areas of the flame it was too hard to get the glossiness placed perfectly from the bottle, so using the paint brush helped a TON!

The ribbon is cut long enough that I can easily tie it with a bow on a gift bag.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Supplies
Paper: white paper at 2.5" x 5.5"; My Minds Eye: Lime Twist- Out of the Blue
Stamps: PTI- wonderful words: birthday, birthday style, background basics: chevron stripes
Ink: PTI- berry sorbet, aqua mist, harvest gold, true black
Other: ribbon scrap; Judi Kins- diamond glaze


Cards for Gifts- Modern Basics Series (2)

Hi All!

Here is card #2 for the clean and simple card set using Modern Basics by Papertrey Ink.




For this card I created "matching" paper for the small red strip by inking up some white paper with the berry sorbet ink that I stamped with. I also heat embossed the green strip, which thankfully didn't warp the paper too much!

Thanks for checkin' it out!

Supplies
Paper: white card stock at 4.25" x 5.5" plus strips
Stamps: PTI- modern basics, mehndi medallion, flower fusion #3
Ink: PTI- berry sorbet, true black; Versamark
Other: Stampendous embossing powder in emerald
