Make it Monday #51 - Dimensional Sentiment Banner


Just in time: this is my card for the Make It Monday #51 - Dimensional Sentiment Banner. Nichole Heady made a beautiful card using Aqua Mist and Hawain Shores. Unfortunately, I don't have those inks, but I made a nice Valentinesy card.  I first used only Sweet blush cardstock and ink for the hearts stamps (Heart Prints - PTI), but it became too soft. So I finished the card today by adding the Friendship definition (Hero Arts) in fuchsia ink (Vivid). And I stamped the little heart from Heart Prints (PTI) to give a little extra background. I made the banner with Sweet Blush card stock and stamped with a background stamp (American Crafts). Added two Sweet Blush buttons threaded with pink bakers twine (Papersmooches). Viola!

Now I'm really off to bed ;-)

Another PTI card









I made another card for PTI's 5th anniversary! If shipping costs weren't as high, I would have all of the PTI products, haha! But I still love the sets I have at the moment. Soon I will have to buy some more :-)
They have a challenge on the blog of Nichole Heady:
5th Anniversary Day 1: 2012 Team & Our Favorite Things

I was inspired by the favorites of Heather Nichols: Kraft cardstoch, Fresh Snow ink and Spring Moss stitched ribbon. She always makes the most beautiful, creative and fresh designs!! The Little Bitty Bird stampset is still my favorite ^_^



I used Spring Moss cardstock for the card base, die cut a circle in the Kraft panel using Nestabilities circles. I sponged white ink on the green and kraft panel, for a soft look. On top of the circle I added a scallopped circle frame with Vintage Cream cardstock. The branch and birdie are from the stampset Little Bitty Bird (PTI) and the sentiment is from Love Birds (PTI). I colored the leafs and his wings with Copic marker. After adding a heart and some rhinestones from my stash, it was finished!



The prize package is HUGE!! So be sure to visit the website and upload your project!

Now I'm off to bed :)

5th Anniversary Day 1: 2012 Team & Our Favorite Things

I was inspired by the beautiful doily card of Jessica Witty.


I created my card using Vintage Cream cardstock and I embossed a doily die (Cheery Lynn design, unfortunately my stash of PTI stuff is little). I cut out a circle of Aqua Mist card stock (PTI) and covered it with XOXO's in Versamark ink, I stamped the sentiment from Mega Mixed Messages (PTI) onto Kraft cardstock (Bassil). The two hearts are: one punched out from Pure Poppy cardstock (PTI) and the other one is stamp with a heart stamp from Heart Prints (PTI), both using the cordinating heart die.


The prize package is HUGE!! So be sure to visit the website and upload your project!

So long!
