PTI's 7th Anniversary ~ Day 2

Tonight I have seven cards to share using free printables from Nichole Heady's blog today. These designers are just awesome, and here's what they gave us to work with creating our own cards.


Let's start with the first card I made tonight, which was using Heather's printable. White card base is covered with Raspberry Fizz, a Tipped Tops die of black before adhering the printable and adding black sequins for a little bling. 

My second card was created using Lizzie's circular design die cut using Limitless Layers: 1-3/4" Circles. My second layer of white card raised up using SU dimensionals created a window-type effect for my image. The printable was adhered to a Mat Stack #3 die cut together from Ocean Tides and SU's Groovy Guava, which was embossed with Swiss Dots embossing folder. 

Betsy's design inspired me to make this card, and since I only have the 2-1/4"oval dies, I had to fussy cut this oval before adding a little orange rhinestone in the center of the flower. Some orange sequins finished it off. 

My next card was made using Dawn's bright floral oval, which I could die-cut. My second oval was die-cut from Hawaiian Shores card stock. The hexagon cover plate of Raspberry Fizz over black was wrapped with white crochet thread and several loops behind the image. 

Tiffany's "Keep Being You" flourish was just a tad too big for my die shapes so managed to place it behind a Fabulous Frames red die-cut, that I raised up using SU dimensionals. My background is SU Basic Gray cardstock, VersaMark ink and Basic Backgrounds: Super Stripes. Added a little bling with red glitter glue before finishing it off with a black button, red/white twine and a sentiment from Think Big Favorites #11. 

My sixth card was using Lexi's big diamonds with her "you rock" sentiment, cut out, rounded corners and edged them with red ink before adhering it to a Not Quite Navy Boutique Borders: Congrats die cut. A red strip of cardstock is tucked between these two layers and raised up using SU dimensionals. My background is Spring Rain cardstock run through my Big Shot using a Zig Zag embossing folder. A few rhinestones finish it off. 

My final card before I call it a night was using Melissa's colorful image of flowers, a border and sentiment all wrapped in one. My base is SU Night of Navy cardstock embossed with PTI's Canvas Impression Plate. Two sizes of die cuts using Mat Stack #6 are beneath the image, one in Hawaiian Shores and the other using SU Regal Rose. This one was finished using a yellow button & twine to match. I can barely keep my eyes open so that's it for this post. This was fun ~ just wish I would have had time to start earlier in the day. 

Any questions regarding supplies, just ask. I'm too lazy to list all of them.

Hey Kathy--I am so far behind on blogs and commenting...I did just want to tell you that I have reviewed all of your PTI anniversary posts and projects and they are all just super. The inside you did of the birthday card is especially sweet, and I'm sure that all the workers will appreciate it.
