PTI Blog Challenge

I must say that pink and green is one of my least favorite color combinations, but I like the way this one came out. I used stacked plates to get the butterfly embossed on the background. I always wanted to try that technique. 

PTI products used:
Heeling Touch Sentiments
Aida Embossing plate
Beautiful Butterfly Layers stamps
Beautiful Butterfly Layers dies
White card stock

Altenew February challenge

I took a class by Altenew at CHA and fell in love with their layered flower stamps. The class didn't offer freebie sets, so I had to go buy my own. I chose the stamp set called Golden Garden with matching dies and another one called Super Script. I love the bold mod look and these flowers and sentiments make it easy to whip up a quick tag.

PTI Release Challenge

The last challenge was to use the first three layers of your name to create a project. This was a perfect simple project for a last minute Valentine's tag for my mom. My name challenge came out like this:

J - jewels
O - ombré
N - something new

And here is my tag:

I used my new PTI tag die and PTI Scribble Circles stamp.

PTI Thank-you

My last card that I'm sharing today is a thank-you card. 

This is a nice flat card since it's going in the mail today to PTI. And of course there is a matching envelope. :oD

I used an old PTI stamp set called Bird Watching. I also used Wonderful Words:Thank-you and Circle Scrbbles.

PTI Color Pop Challenge

This challenge involves a color picker...

Pick a number: 5
Move the picker 5 times and the color over my left thumb is my first color
Flip 11 times - November
open flap on the left to get the next two colors

These aren't colors that I would have picked... kind if too monochromatic for me, but I really like how it came out.

I used the PTI Enjoy frame die cut, and Beautiful Blooms stamp set and dies.

PTI Release Challenge

In this challenge we were asked to cut 9 squares and use a different technique on each. I used the following techniques:

Dry Embossing
White on White
Coloring with Copics
Embossing Powder
Die cuts

I also used PTI Framed Out Set #1 and Beutiful Blooms Stamps and Dies. 

It's amazing what a mess I can make of my craft area using 9 techniques!

Time to clean up. Thanks for stopping by!

PTI Birthday

Today's challenge was to grab all our supplies within 5 minutes. Well, if I'm going to do that, I have to know exactly what I'm going to create and use familiar tried and true supplies.

I grabbed my go-to PTI Star Prints stamps, Think Big birthday stamps, and one of my favorite BG 6x6 paper pads...
And this is what I created

I timed myself and it took me 15 minutes to finish this card, but to my defense I didn't stop the timer when the Girl Scout came to the door. 

So in 15 minutes, I have a fun birthday card and two boxes of Thin Mints :oD

PTI Birthday

This PTI Birthday challenge is to gain inspiration from clothing. All of my clothes  are pretty boring... Mostly solids, so I went cruising online and found this dress from Banana Republic.

And here is my card

I used the Happiness in Bloom stamp set, the Wonderful Word Thank- you die, and PTI card stock.

PTI Make it Monday

The theme this week was ombré valentines. I was thinking of doing a guy version, but since I didn't have a Love die, I went with HAPPY. Since I went with HAPPY, it evolved into a happy birthday card. I used watercolor crayons since I don't have gelatos, but I like how it came out.

PTI supplies used:
   Stylish Sentiments Birthday
