PTI Anniversary Day 7 Challenge

Nothing like the prospect of free stamps to get me out of my card making rut. ;)
I stuck with the same color combo since it takes less thinking. And less sorting through all of the different cardstock, ink and ribbons. Sometimes I get overwhelmed with too many choices!

I used PTI's new heart border die to cut out all of the hearts and line them up in the shape of a heart. It's not perfect. But as usual I am rushed for time. We are going to see the US Women's soccer team play today. My 9 yr old is a huge soccer fan so she's very excited. Honestly I'm not looking forward to sitting outside in the 34 degree weather. But I shall reward myself with new stamps on the 15th. ;)

Papertrey Ink 5th Anniversary Sketch #5 Challenge

In between getting the kids from school, going to the eye glass store and trying to figure out what the heck is for dinner before tonight's Valentine's Dance at the school, I put together another card. The flowers on the patterned paper didn't *quite* go with the shading of the butterfly so I used a copic and flicked some color onto the flowers.

Off to make another card, er, I mean dinner.

All products Papertrey Ink except for the Hero Arts butterfly and October Afternoon patterned paper.

5 Favorite PTI Things

Here's a card I made a while back. I used some of "My Favorite PTI Things".
The cloud die, envelope die, Larger Than Life flowers, vintage cream cardstock. twine and my $15 grass stamp.
What's that you say, a $15 grass stamp? Yes. I split the Hanging out set with another gal. I ended up not ever using the stamps, but loved the grass stamp. I RAK'd the rest of the stamps to her and kept my beloved grass stamp. Oh the things I do for Papertrey products.

Make It Monday #51 Dimensional Banner

As soon as I saw Nichole's video for the latest Make It Monday I knew exactly what I wanted to do. The only problem was executing it. I couldn't find the time until today.

The pink flowers are much softer than the picture shows. It's called Lemonade by Fresh Ink. I love these pigment inks. They never let me down! I did order a few of PTI's newest cubes just to try them out. So far I have been pleasantly surprised by their performance.

I tried to wrap the flowers in some vellum to mimic the look of the packaging that comes from a florist. I had a lot of fun creating this one. Now I need to find some more time to make something else. Thanks for stopping by!!
