Hello. Today's card was created for Papertrey Ink's March Blog Hop Challenge. This is my first time to participate in their Blog Hop and I cannot wait to see everyone's projects. Check out the photo they chose for our inspiration. I love the color scheme.
Hello, again. I hope everyone is having a great week.
Today's card highlights this week's Papertrey Ink Make It Monday Challenge of stamping and mixing patterns. The challenge requires the use of three different stamped patterns and at least one PTI product in order to participate.
I've been on a bee kick lately so I thought I would use one of my
favorite little stamps from Crafty Secrets to help create a pattern for my larger
I thought this was a great challenge. The bee stamp was the smallest stamp used on this project but was utilized to create the largest pattern. I needed a little reminder that I don't have to use larger stamps to make background images.
I used Stampin' Up's Houndstooth on the scalloped circle and a Recollection's stamp to create the striped circle. The stitched tag was cut using one of my favorite PTI dies.
Martha Stewart Edge Punch and Circle Edge Punches were used to create the black doily and larger black background.
Hi. I wanted to share a quick project I made for Papertrey Ink's Make it Monday Challenge. Each submission must use the 'smooshing' technique in order to qualify for the chance to win a $25 gift card.
Luckily, one of the DT leaders offers a great tutorial on 'smooshing' because I had never heard of this term before. To sum it up, ink a sheet of acetate with a variety of colors, spritz with a bit of water, roll the droplets around until the colors collide, and then 'smoosh' a piece of paper against the results. It's pretty fun but be careful when rolling the water around on the acetate if you craft in a carpeted room...the water got away from me and I have a lovely shade of Picked Raspberry on my floor!
I used PTI's stitched tag die and covered with vellum to soften up the look. I 'smooshed' the heart in the same colors and left uncovered.
I applied clear Stickles to the wings and used Inktense colored pencils to yellow the bee and sentiment.
Don't forget to play along in the RRR113 Challenge. Also, stop by the Crafty Secrets blog. The Linky Party is still underway and Sandy is giving away a beautiful digital paper and stamp to all who play along.
Hello! I hope everyone had a lovely weekend. Today kicks off my daughter's spring break and I am so excited to have that bit of extra time with her. She is only in preschool a few hours a week but with the new baby, I have been stretched thin. Hopefully we can get some mom and daughter time in during Little Man's naps.
Today's tag is primarily made from Papertrey Ink products. I used embroidery floss to stitch together the pink felt and vellum cut from their Stitched Tag die.
Tag sale #5 was used to cut out the inner tag and was embellished using

I had so much fun coloring these little cuties. This tag was cut using robin's egg blue paper-such a nice spring color. I love this little guy carrying around his basket of babies.
