PTI MIM #300: Build-A-Wreath

It was Melissa's turn to enlighten us with her talents and challenge us to build a wreath. Believe it or not, my wreath supplies are somewhat limited but I opted to use the one from Make It Market Mini Kit: Lovely Laurels. That's the beginning of my card for this week's Make It Monday Challenge at Papertrey Ink. Even though I didn't add all the extras Melissa did, I'm pretty pleased with my results. Another Christmas card added to my stash ~ yay!

PTI MIM #299: Sentiment Windows

Well, apparently I'm on the same schedule as Sunday Night Football. Here I am again just finishing my card and posting before this week's deadline for Papertrey Ink's Make It Monday. Sentiment Windows is Dawn's challenge where we allow our sentiment stamped inside the card to also be part of our card design. Yes, I made a bigger deal out of this than I should have, but I do like the end result. And, I used some of my hoarded PTI patterned paper. Thanks, Dawn, for the inspiration!





As you can see below, the berries inside were covered by the acorns adhered to the card front.

PTI MIM #298: Faux Epoxy Embellishments

Now that the temperatures have dropped a bit and leaves are changing color, it's starting to feel more like Fall is just around the corner. This prompted me to make a faux epoxy leaf like Betsy showed here for this week's Make It Monday at Papertrey Ink. Here's the design I created.



(Apologize for the light blue backdrop that is a result of poor lighting and my iPad camera.)

PTI Create Along With Us: September 2017

It's that time of the month for Papertrey Ink's new release, and since it's September it's time for their Christmas products. They just never disappoint, do they? It's also our chance to create along with the designers by using their gorgeous creations and/or color schemes for inspiration. How does one choose which one to favor? This time I went with the card below by Michelle showcasing Betsy's new Make It Market Kit.




This is what I came up with using products I currently own. No surprise that I'm eager to get my hands on new sets though as I can't resist their cuteness!

PTI MIM #296: Small Images on Repeat

So, let's start by saying perhaps I should have used the smaller snowflake, but I thought it was really too small for the design I had in mind. My card below is for Papertrey Ink's Make It Monday with Lexi. She challenged us to use small stamp images and repeat them. I just had to use my new Holographic Embossing Powder on my snowflakes but didn't photograph well.




I'm eager to try this technique again soon when I get my SAF mess cleaned up in my stamp room and get new products organized in folders, etc. My brain might work beetter then. : ) Had another busy week but hope to get back to blog hopping and commenting soon.

PTI SAF 2017: 9th Anniversary Tradition: Pottery by Nichole Heady

Curiosity got the best of me, and I just had to try this Cornstarch Dough recipe. Haven't done this type of thing for years…way back when the cinnamon ornaments were so popular. This is the 16th and final SAF 2017 challenge I've completed, and even though this wasn't my best effort I'm sharing them anyway. Will try this again when I have more time and better stamp choices as the sentiments I had are very hard to read. Onward!


Details later.

PTI SAF 2017: 10th Anniversary Tradition: Tin & Aluminum by Carissa Wiley

Last, but certainly not least, is my post for Carissa Wiley's technique using Nuvo gilding flakes…only I don't own them and couldn't get access to them in time for this event. Nichole said use what supplies we have on hand so chunky silver glitter to the rescue. Here's my creation.
