Red White and Blue Thanks


Memory Box July Challenge
Red White and Blue
Taking a second entry on this challenge. A non 4th of July card. I found some inspiring papers from Doodle Bug/ Stars & Stripes 6 by 6 paper pack, love that festive create paper look! Using a double die cutting technique to inlay the poppy then popped it up on some card stock layering over the pattern paper. A small amount of liquid glue was needed around the edges to hold flower in before tape rolling the back side in place. The small thanks was placed on the vertical stem completing the card.

For this week fun little challenge I turned the My Favorite Things Camper into a card. It so cute and few friends are doing the summer camping / trailer thing. It will make fun note pass along at next reunion or picnic. The inside is lined with some papers from Lily bee Design/ Destination. You can see a tiny piece that I flipped for the window.
I added the small banner from Memory Box. Sentiment is also from My Favorite things an older set called Let's Picnic.

PTI Create With Us / Release Week Challenge-Thanks





Since there is no Make It Monday Video due to release week at PTI, so another creative mind came up with a fun plan that we can pick something that that is going to released/ made by the designers/ as your inspiration... to make a card then post. Of course post what inspired you also!
As you can see these Vintage Linen Papers inspired my card. Can you tell which one? I really love this look and whole idea (Dawn Mc Vey) of vintage table clothes so pretty and fresh.Oh and buying the paper will really save you loads of time but these stamped flowers are over the moon gorgeous:)
For my card I picked the flower set Beautiful Brushstrokes stamps and dies. These are layered stamping flowers starting with lighter colored inks moving to darker tones for the lines.My larger flower inks: PTI/ Hibiscus Burst, Raspberry Fizz, Pure Poppy. The smaller flower inks: Simon Says Stamp/ Cotton Candy, PTI/ Hibiscus Burst, Raspberry Fizz. Leafs/  PTI/New Leaf paper stamped with Ripe Avocado. Sentiment/ PTI/Wet Paint Word Die/ Thanks cut in Raspberry Fizz 3 times. PTI/  Hawaiian Shores Polka Dot Paper. Edged in Hero Arts White Unicorn Ink.Sequins/ Clear from Stash.

Coffee Wins!





Ok... I love coffee that totally hands a winner for me. I will though show up for a formal tea anytime. Really we must be flexible:)! This MFT sketch was just waiting for something! I went the MFT cell phone die displaying thanks.The set had those tiny heart banners so I clustered 4 together. For my border I used the Cross Stitched Rectangle Die.
 All the stamps are from Paper Smooches Cyber Cafe collection except for the heart.. On the coffee steam I did a second generation stamping to give it a fuller look. The heart was from Paper Smooches Woofers and Tweeters set (she has  many random cute hearts in lot of sets to pick from) its  hard tell but I did put clear Wink of Stella on it to add some sparkle. 
Pattered paper is from Bo Bunny Aloe collection.
Inks/ Memento - Love Letter; Rich Cocoa

Papertrey Ink MIM- Creating Your Own Custom Border


PTI- MIM #217
Creating Your Own Custom Border

I made this lovely flower creation using the Bigger Blooms Stamps and Die set...have no no soccer balls:) I was inspired to use the scoring concept on my project on the vertical and horizontal at  1/4 inch intervals. Once I found something to use for this concept this is great idea. Going to be making a few more of these since I have so many beautiful flowers stamped up! (or I could glue them in my drought ridden garden which needs major color!!)
Inks/ PTI- Hibiscus Burst, Raspberry Fizz, Pure Poppy, New Leaf
