Simply Sweet


Papertrey Ink 
September 2016 Blog Hop
I did a one layer card using some of the elements from the inspiration photo. Using the No Strings Attached stamp set for my bow, ties, tag and attachment piece... this set has it all. For leaves I used the Autumn Pumpkin stamp set. Sentiment is from Signature Greetings still one of all time favorites. My ink was PTI Classic Kraft, Simply Chareuse; and Delicata Gold.

Ahoy Matey!


Simon Says Stamp
Wednesday Challenge
Gift Card

Ahoy Mateys! I used the gift card die cut by Sizzix Stephanie Barnard all papered up with Echo Park. It is the Ahoy Matey collection. I die cut out the ship  pieces and placed on the edge of the fold so the flips still can turn. Adding an additional piece of card stock on the outside then stamping where to find the buried treasure :). When you open it up you find the Birthday die cut from Memory Box. What you cant see is behind the ship, is the pirate's  sword  placed to help give the ship some support with an extra design element.
These where very fun to make, and just cant wait to make more!!

Masculine Flowers


PTI Make It Monday #261
Using Floral's on a Masculine Project
I went with Garden Gate set. Many men do garden so.. making this not the frilly version kept more manly. The fencing is birch wood paper, and adding in those beautiful Melon Berry colors with Autumn Rose and Harvest Gold flowers. My pot and watering cans are die cut out of copper foil paper to add to the texture.

Little Inker/ Background Stitched Swirl

I made a second card, because you know once you start ...it came out more masculine as well not frilly but could not pick between the two. This time trying not use black, adding that color of fall. The other set of flower are from the Forget Me Not set. Both would be just fine for a guy! I highly doubt they would save them any way!

Mr C. Corn


Papertrey Ink
MIM / Create Along With Us : August 2016
Something that inspired me this release was all the Halloween release items most specifically the stitching candy corn by Erin L (BTW loved that die  and did buy it!!). I also can relate to some of comments of liking a more friendly/ fun looking Halloween... so I pulled out my Candy Corn  Shaker die, decided to make it a little differently. I noticed not even stitching dies have to be stitched look great! Mine is just shouting Trick or Treat and having some fun.
