Thanks So Much!

Hello everyone!! I’m here today with Papertrey Ink Make It Monday Challenge.

This week Lexi showed us how to create a white on white die cut card with a pop of color.  Totally love this idea.

Take a look at my card:

Thanks so much

Isn’t this apple die cut the cutest!!  I love their new Apple Die with the Apple Mini Stamp Set.

I simple die cut the apples and then die cut the thanks with Simon Says Stamp Schoolhouse cardstock.

After die cutting the “thanks”, I carefully cut the sentiment away from the apple.  I adhered the thanks and the apple outline with Tombow Multipurpose Glue.

I stamped the sentiment with My Favorite Things Hybrid Black Licorice Ink.

I adhered my apple to the card base with foam tape.

Super easy and totally fun.  I love these stamp and die set.  I can’t wait to play again.

I took another photo with a different background, playing around with my new Foldio in the middle of the night.

Thanks so much 3

So what do you think?  Let me know below.

Die-cut Turn Stencil, How?

Hello everyone!!  I’m here today with Papertrey Ink Make it Monday #179: Emboss Resist Using Diecut.

make-it-monday

I’m so excited to be able to play along with them this week.  I’ve been so busy that I haven’t had a chance to play with them in awhile.

I’m also playing along with Simon Says Stamp: Create Your Own Background!

wed-newchallenge-header Laura Bassen showed us how to stretch our die cuts by using them as a stencil to emboss resist!  I had so much fun creating this card.

Take a look at my card:

Hello Someone Loves You

1. I used Papertrey Ink’s Circle Die Cover Plate to create my background.

Stencil made

2. I  die cut the cover plate and taped it down over my Neenah Solar White Card Stock card panel.

3. I applied the Versamark Ink directly on top of my circle stencil.

4. I added Hero Arts White Embossing powder to the versamark card panel.  I heat set it.

5. I blended Papertrey Ink Summer Sunrise, Hibicus Burst and Pure Poppy with my Mini Ink Blending Tool on my embossed card base.

6. I used a damp napkin and wiped of the ink from my embossed circle so that they look nice and white.

7. I cut two scribbles out of vellum using the Papertrey Ink’s Circle Scribbles Die.

8. I cut two hello’s from Lawn Fawn Scripty Hello Die out of Stampin’ Up! Basic Black cardstock.

9.  I stamped my sentiment from Papertrey Ink Wet Paint III on Neenah Solar White cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.

10. I adhered the scribbles down with Tombo Multipurpose Glue, then added the hello die on top of that. I added the stamp sentiment underneath the hello.

11. I added Wink of Stella to the hello die cut.

I think this card turned out very pretty.  I love how the colors blended together.  So tell me what you think.

Striped Thanks

Hello everyone!  I’m here with Papertrey Ink Make It Monday #176: Backgrounds with Embossing Paste.  It’s been a while since I’ve played along with them.  So, I’m glad I had a chance to play today.

Laura Bassen showed us how to use our dies to create stencils so that we could make pretty backgrounds using embossing paste.

I’ve done this before so it was nice to do this technique again.

Here is my card:

Thanks {watercolor}2

Here is how I create my card:

1. I used Papertrey Ink’s Stripes Horizontal Cover Plate to create my stencil.  I just ran the cover plate through my big shot twice for some thickness.

2. One at a time I mixed my distress reinkers with Wendy Vecchi Embossing Paste.  I mixed the paste and  Mustard Seed Distress Ink and spread my paste on the top of my stencil thick.  Then I mixed Peacock Feathers Distress Ink and spread it in the middle of the stencil, thick.  The last I mixed Picked Raspberry and spread it on the bottom of my stencil, thick.

3.  I lightly spread the paste upwards from the bottom to mix the colors going up.  Once I removed all of the excess paste, I removed my stencil to reveal the colorful stripes.

4. I set my card panel to the side and die cut my middle Papertrey Ink Circle Scribbles Die out of Stampin’ Up! Vellum.

5. Then I die cut Lawn Fawn Scripty Thanks out of Basic Black Cardstock.

6. I adhered the vellum scribble to my striped card panel with Glossy Accents.  I added my scripty thanks to the vellum scribble with Tombow Multipurpose Glue.

7. I rounded my corners with my We R Memory Keepers Corner Chomper (which by the way broke today, I’m so sad, I have to buy another one.).

8. The “thanks” looked to plain so I added Glossy Accents for a little shine.

That’s how I created this card!!  Oh by the way, my card size is 4-1/4 x 5-1/2 scored at 5-1/2.  My card panel measures 4 x 5-1/4.

So what do you think?  Let me know.

All Smiles…..

Hello everyone!  I’m here today with Papertrey Ink’s Make It Monday #172: Rainbow Medallions!

Dawn Mcvey showed us how to create beautiful rainbow medallions using the stamps we have in our stash!  It’s all about placement and different colors.Dawn McveyI’ve been thinking all day long about the different stamps I could use to create this great affect.  I couldn’t think of one.  When I arrived home, I had a big box waiting for me in my kitchen.  When I looked at the label it said Papertrey Ink.  I was so excited because I had a feeling about what it was!!

My new Papertrey Ink Market Kit Shakers + Sprinkles!!

Shakers and Sprinkles KitYes, yes, yes!  I’ve been waiting patiently for this order to come.  It’s been on back-order for a couple of months.  When I saw the half sunburst as a stamp, I knew I was going to use it for this in my Make It Monday project.

So without further a due, here is my card:

Smiles 2

I use four different colors to create this look.  I took Dawn’s advice by stamping the image by its opposite so that you don’t have to worry about lining them up next to each other.  This was really fun to do and it really allows you to look at your stamps differently.

The sentiment and the sunburst are from Papertrey Ink Make It Market Kit Shakers + Sprinkles.  This kit was such a hit on their site that it cause the site to crash back in May.  I’m sorry to tease those of you who didn’t get it, but it is sold out.

Now you know why I’m All Smiles!

What do you think?

The Joy is in the Journey

Hello everyone!!  I’m here today with Papertrey Ink’s Make it Monday #171: Pop Up Die Cuts, AAA Cards Game #10 Watercolor techniques and Virginia’s View Challenge #5

I’m so excited about this weeks challenges because they combine my two favorite things.  Water-coloring and my all time favorite die, Life is Beautiful Butterfly die.

AAAcardGame10

Yayyyyy, I get to use Watercolors for this challenge!!

MIM 171 Pop Up Die Cuts

Besty Veldman showed everyone how to use our dies to create partial cuts!!

V. V. Challenge #5 (2)

Die Cut, perfect!

Take a look at my card:

Joy in the Journey3

Joy in the Jouney4

I created a card like this in the past, when I was taking my Online Card Class on Water-coloring.  It was fun so I decided to do it again with different colors, die, and sentiment.  You can see my original card here.

To create the watercolor dots, I used a new pencil eraser to transfer the ink from the pad to the paper.

Then I die cut the butterfly over the dots.  I only placed the cutting plates over the wing section of the butterfly.  That way the body of the butterfly will stay in tack.

I stamped the sentiment and added some heart enamel dots.

Can you say pretty!!!  I can!!!  Creating this card was very easy and everyone should try water-coloring and partial die cutting.

So what do you think?  Please leave a comment letting me know if you like my card creation today.

Huh..Black Butterfly?

Hello everyone!  I’m here today with Papertrey Ink’s Make It Monday #170: Masking with Die Cuts.

How cool is this effect! What you have to do is cut masks out of dies that have matching stamps. You create an easy one-layer card that will be striking.

Have you ever seen a black butterfly?  They are just as pretty as the colorful ones.

black__white_butterfly-1152x864Photo credit

So for those of you who know me, knows that I’m going to draw for my beautiful butterfly stamp and die set.  I have to say this is my favorite set.  It works with everything.

Take a look at my card:

Happy Butterfly

Here are the steps to creating this beautiful one layer card.

1. I cut my butterfly out using my Papertrey Ink’s Life is Beautiful die and some Inkadinkado masking paper.

2. I place the masked butterfly down on my cardstock where I wanted it to be.

3. I sponged Stampin’ Up! Daffodil Delight, Mellon Mambo, and Pumpkin Pie Classic Stampin’ Pad with sponge daubers.

4. I removed the masking to reveal the colorless butterfly surrounded by the beautiful background.

5. I stamp the butterfly detail in Versafine Onyx Black Ink using Papertrey Ink’s Life is Beautiful stamp set.

6. Then I stamped the sentiment using Papertrey Ink’s Wet Paint stamp set using the Versafine Onyx Black Ink.

I decided to use the black ink for my butterfly and sentiment so that they will really pop out of the colorful background.

What do you think?  Let me know by leaving a comment below.

Red, White and Blue…

Hello everyone! I’m here today with a Papertrey Ink Make it Monday #169: Vellum Overlays.  I’m so late in posting this card.  I couldn’t decide what I wanted to create for this challenge.

So, I picked the colors that I wanted to work with first.  Since July 4 is this Friday, I decided to go with red, white and blue.  Once I knew that, I saw it fitting to use PTI’s Cover Plate: Stars Die.

After figuring all of that out, I needed to see how my vellum piece would look attached to my card.  Once I added it, I realized I didn’t have a sentiment on my card.  That’s when it hit me that I should add the sentiment to the vellum and in silver for an extra pop.

Yes, that turned out neatly!

Take a look at my card:

Time to Celebrate top

Time to celebrate

 

I attached my vellum with two bronze brads.  I must me honest, when I decided to add brads, I knew for sure I had silver ones.  Well, I such everywhere and I could not find them.  So, I decided to us the bronze brads and I like it.

What do you think?  Don’t be afraid to let me know, good or bad.
