Monday mood board at Wplus9

I love the colours Dawn posted on her mood board this week - As soon as I saw the colours I pulled out my clay and silicone molds and made a ton of little embellishments - I'll be well stocked in these colours lol!

So I made a beautiful card and realized that it didn't have any Wplus9 products on it!! Kids were still sleeping so I had a chance to make a second- phew!

I used Wplus9 Chantilly Trim and their scalloped die on the bottom of the first (second ;) card. I also made a bouquet out on one of the elements from that set with a bit of masking. Some clay flowers and a little ribbon bow. Messed up some stamping and covered with a banner.

The second card uses a fun Kraft chipboard price I picked up at Michaels. Some MME patterned paper ( ummm, for some reason it rang up for a penny. I may or may not have gotten a few more packs!) and ruffled ribbon from SU. Another big crush!! Sentiment is from PTI's half and half

Thanks for looking!!

Best laid plans

We all fell sick here last week and so I did not get to complete any more of the PTI anniversary challenges. Even worse - I didn't win the year of free stamp!! Oh well

I wanted to show the card I made hubby did valentines day cause it was really fun to make!! Used lots of PTI dies on me with any questions!!

MIM 103 die cut double up

I made this card on Monday, and with all the anniversary blog posts I almost forgot to post it!! Talk about under the wire!!

The leaf die cut is memory box. Also, the bright colours were just freaking my camera out but it's a dark navy, orange zest and new leaf.

Went to my brother who loves to travel...

PTI Sketch challenge

Time for another quick card. We have a teddy bear picnic birthday party this weekend - how nice to have a stamp for every occasion !

Some crate pattern paper, rhinestones, a little bow ( lets not discuss how long it took me to tie! ) and some flocked noses.

PTI YOF card

Ok that post tittle will only make sense to PTI fans lol!
Ahhhh Friday night. Kids in bed, a little glass of fruity wine and some crafty time- pretty close to perfect!!

This card was inspired by some beautiful wallpaper, and Kara's recent watercolor stationery.

I stamped and embossed YOF carnation into some textured cream stock. Water coloured the label with worn lipstick distress ink and outlined it with my signo uniball gold pen. Some little embelishments, and a sentiment from YOF violets.

This was a lot of fun to make. Thanks for the cool technique Kara!!!

PTI Challenge #1 take 3

Lots of fun creating this one !
I was inspired by Maile and her use of white space which is really intimidating to me..but I compromised by using lots of white lace ribbon instead.
One pop of colour, some shimmer cardstock ( something else that reminds me of Maile) and a little pearl button later- all done!

I think I've started a real lavender moon kick. I almost never use this colour, and this grosgrain is the only ribbon colour I have in it, but its really crept up on me. I'll definitely be using it more often!

More Festivities

I caught a few more minutes to make a card on the busiest day of the week in our household...yeah me!!

I used Heathers printable to make a name day card. It's a celebration that's very common in orthodox Christian faiths. It's a celebration of the feast day of the saint you were named after. Back in the old days in the village, seldom did anyone remember the date you were born ( hence no b-day's) but they knew when the feast days were so you got to have a celebration at least. History lesson over lol!

Back to the card, oh my gosh I'm in love!! I would buy this stamp in an instant!

PTI Anniversary Cont'd

Second card I picked from Erin's project. I liked the card with lavender moon and stars. I need to use this colour more often!! I used the super star border die, and the little ones are the middle of the stars. I put a strip of scor tape on the back before I ran them through my big shot so that I could adhere them easier. A little snippet of ribbon tape to the bottom...wish I had a stapler.

PTI Anniversary Challenge #1

All right folks it PTI anniversary time!! That means fun and challenges for the next 10 followed by an exhausted lull that can be heard throughout craft-land.

My first card is inspired by Danielle's whole picture. I picked an element here and there. BB rainbows, doilies, pearl pins and aqua mist. I mashed them all together into my first card. The stamping on the card base was done with the same colour ink. Stamped once on the top, twice around the middle and three times on the bottom. Could be neater...oops!!
