Papertrey Ink MIM 216- Adding Color to Cover Plates


Papertrey Ink
MIM 216: Adding Color to Cover Plates

For my cover plate I used Text Block Horizontal Birthday Die. I went all out Happy Birthday bright and happy! Limeade Ice and Hawaiian Shores Inks for my backgrounds (they really did smooth on like butter once I got the hang of it!!). This was fun and a good idea ...should do this more often!:)
I used some Copics to color in the text block. added some Starform Sticker tiny stars.

Papertrey Ink June Blog Hop Challenge




PTI  Blog Hop- Inspirational Photo

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge
Anything Goes

These little shoes cute and strange all in some kind of way. I went a little bit C&S. The really good thing was it inspired me to actually make a card and play along! Then I cracked open that Bigger Blooms stamp and Die set ...then like ever so impressed of way it stamped up and cut out:)! I double stacked the sentiment to make it stand out a bit better.

PTI MIM: Open Flower


Make It Monday #215
PTI
Bring the outside in was her theme for this week video. I used Beautiful Blooms 2 die for my opening and the flower itself for the base; smaller one has the sentiment on it (Heart to Heart #4). For my layer over sentiment I pulled out the Grand Curvy Greetings Hello die in Tropical Teal card stock. I used patterned paper for my stamping... making it so easy!(Basic Gray /What's Up patterned paper). Tiny dots are from Starform.
Now I will make five more of these so I can hand out them a Card Club.

My Hero


Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge
Friends or Superhero Cards

I made this a hero card for this week challenge blog. So I was thinking my hero coming out the fog just missing lighting! Anyway will be used for fathers day for the "sidekick" in my life.I decided to use the negative on this background die from SSS using the 'press and seal' method to the pieces aligned.I added Copic grays to the SSS fog gray paper.

OWH Miss You


Operation Write Home
June Our Daily Bread Designs Monthly Challenge
Miss You Cards

I must say I will certainly miss Operation Write Home. I read Sandy all the time and laugh, learn,  shop (to donate of course;), and read about all the crafty news she shares through OWH. Let alone all wonderful women who spend a lot time and effort to make and send cards. I will still follow her but it will be a change just like everything else that has been happening!
 For my card I used a Simon Says Stamp Die ' Balloon Bouquet' cut out in two different colors from scraps. The sentiment is from Hero Arts. My heart is punched from the mini Stampin Up heart punch.

TV Dad


Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge 
Masculine Cards
I made a fathers Day card out of the Simon Says Stamp TV die. It is supposed to be a shaker but I decided on this one to just make a it a regular card with a sentiment. The sentiment is also from Simon Says Stamp the Father's Day set which packs a bunch great stamps. Papers are from Basic Gray Max & Whispers collection.
