Danke Schon


Memory Box Challeng/ Giving Thanks

Poppy Stamps/ Plaid
                                              





So I am up for this challenge using Plaid and Thanks. I just got some of the ever popular Lawn Fawn plaid paper..in the Autumn colors (OK I bought it all the seasons:).I used a bit of PTI Summer Sunrise paper to cut out the Memory Box "Danke Schon" and Poppy Die for the tea set and cake stand in PTI Vintage Jadette card stock. My background card stock is Terracotta Tile. A little Bittersweet Orange Twine from May Arts, and some brunt orange sequins finish my card.

Season's Greetings



PTI Make It Monday #265
Layered Dry Brushing
I tried this technique from  Lizzie Jones. I took the paint brush , mixed up some PTI Pure Poppy with the Distress Paint White Picket Fence. Then I brushed as directed. OK, being honest, this was my fifth  try! This one came so much better. Finally got the hang of it (hopefully).
For the rest of card, I went holiday.
I trimmed the new PTI Simple Bow down on the Christmas Cuts Tag collection, making an ornament. For sentiment I used the Wet Paint Holiday Dies and Stamps. Cutting out the "season's" in American Crafts Glitter "Wow" paper. All stamped in Encore Metallic Silver Ink.

B & W



Poppystamps
PSC # 25 Back to Black
Black and White Challenge
The idea here was to create a card in all Black and White. So this basic Gingham paper from Pebbles got me going. I off set the main birthday image to create a pop of B & W, added the Bow and String Die above the scallops on the paper.

Holiday Joy


Papertrey Ink
Create Along With Us / Release Week Inspiration
My inspiration came from the the Quick Notes : Holiday by Maile, also the word I am seeing is Joy!
I put a card together by using the ( all dies and stamps are from PTI)  Cover Plates Stripes Diagonal Die layered in two colors: Pine Feather and Poppy. Then Die cut out the word die JOY. I also die cut the word out again in chipboard and inked it up in Delicata Golden Glitz Ink. The sentiment is from Wet Paint Holiday stamped in Pure Poppy. The tiny snowflake is from Snow Globe Sentiments stamped in Pure Poppy, covered in clear wink of stella with a tiny sliver sticker bling.

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!!
