Make it Monday #282: Stenciled Watercolor Backgrounds

So, my intention was to kill two challenges with one card, but that didn't happen, so here is my card for this week's Make it Monday Challenge. I used a Faber-Castell stencil with PTI Canyon Clay and SU! Daffodil Delight ink on watercolor paper. The flower and sentiment are from Painted Petals, & the card base is SU! Really Rust cardstock. Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great afternoon!

Papertrey Ink April 2017 Blog Hop

This month's PTI blog hop colors really didn't inspire me and I had a hard time putting them together, but here is my noble attempt. The colors I finally landed on are PTI Sweet Blush & Canyon Clay, SU! Daffodil Delight, and Tim Holtz Weathered Wood. I scored the SU! Daffodil Delight card base to give it some interest and mounted my focal point on a piece of SU! Basic Gray cardstock. I used PTI's Bigger Blooms and Mini Blooms stamp sets. Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!

Make it Monday #281: Patterns Behind Die-Cut Windows

This week's PTI Make it Monday Challenge is completely doable for me which means it's completely doable for you, too!! I made this sweet little Easter/Spring card for my parents based on a card I found on Pinterest, and it's simple to put together but impressive. I used the bunny die from PTI's Polka Dot Parade #1 to cut a shape from a piece of white cardstock. I then stamped and colored all these adorable little carrots from Inky Antics' Carrot Bunny and placed a small piece of PTI's lemon tart bitty dot basics paper (from 2008, y'all!) behind the bunny opening. I attached a tiny white pom pom to the front and mounted the whole thing on a piece of lemon tart cardstock. Thanks for stopping by today!

Make it Monday #279: Curved Sentiments

This week's PTI Make it Monday challenge is curved sentiments, and I just happened to be working on a card today that required a curved sentiment! PTI's Life stamp set is one of my favorites, although I wasn't really getting the results I wanted with it today. I have a terrible time coloring stamps multiple colors, so I pulled out my favorite Wplus9 Freehand Florals and stamped the blooms in Angel Pink (Memento) and Winter Wisteria (PTI). I matted the focal panel a few times and added some sequins and VOILA! Thanks for stopping by on this beautiful Sunday afternoon - have a blessed week!!
