Hi, there. Today's project was created for Papertrey's Make it Monday. Betsy created a beautiful stenciled ombre background and has challenged us to do the same. Don't forget to stop by and check out her tutorial.
I used Tim Holtz distress inks and a layering stencil to create my background.
PTI's scene it and love lives here dies were used to create the center of my card. I really wanted to add a few sequins but I was out!
Hi, there! I hope everyone is having a great week. I wanted to share a quick project with you today that I made for Papertrey's Make it Monday. Lexi has challenged us to create a watercolor project using rubber cement as a resist. I can honestly say, I never would have come up with this idea...Lexi was definitely thinking outside of the box!
Let's get started.
I started off by painting my watercolor paper yellow. After drying, I applied a few swirls of the rubber cement. Once the rubber cement dried, I water colored everything in green, waited for the paint to dry, and then removed the rubber cement to show those little pops of yellow.
Wrapping up Papertrey's Anniversary challenges with this final project. I was challenged to create a project with rounded corners, 5 different colors, and 2 different stamp sets. Don't forget to play along.
PTI: Limeade Ice, Hibiscus Burst, Summer Sunrise Inks; Aqua Mist and Sweet Blush paper,
I finally made it through all of PTI's fabulous anniversary challenges and am ready to post my final project. This little treat bag was inspired by Kay Millers Color Recipe Card...Sweet Blush, Raspberry Fizz, Orange Zest, Summer Sunrise, and Simply Chartreuse. I love those bright hues!
Brushed Blooms Stamps and Dies were used to complete the look.
Another post here for Papertrey's Anniversary celebration. This card was created for the Color Pop Fortune Teller Challenge. My colors were raspberry fizz, pure poppy, and orange zest. I pulled out my Party Pops kit and decided to play along. So much fun!
Hi, there. I'm dropping in for a quick post. I created a project for Papertrey Ink's Sampler Square Challenge. I must admit, this is probably my least favorite challenge...I have never had much flair for designing cards like this so it was definitely a challenge for me. I decided to keep it extremely simple and pull out my nostalgic notions button stamps and dies.
Hi, there! It's Papertrey's 9th anniversary and there are lots of fun festivities to celebrate. Don't forget to stop by and play along in some of the many challenges as there are lots of goodies at stake!
Today's project was created for Betsy's Dress Up Doll Challenge. For this particular challenge, we have to pick an article of clothing to draw inspiration from. I chose the first thing I saw which happened to be my daughter's snowflake pajamas!
Hi, there! Today's post is for Papertrey's Make it Monday. I am excited to play along as Melissa Phillips is the host of this week's challenge. She has provided us with a wonderful tutorial on how to create an ombre valentine project. Isn't her card beautiful? Simple yet elegant...I love it!
Here are a few takes on this week's challenge:
I stamped confetti toss in sweet blush, lovely lady, and hibiscus burst and created an ombre heart border using watercolors.
I used the same ombre technique on the diecut word and polished it off with a little red felt heart, sequin, and sweet blush ribbon.
Third up is a tag created using various shades of pink.
My final project wasn't created with the ombre technique in mind but I thought this little Valentine jar topper fit well with the other projects.
