PTI MIM #215: Bringing The Inside Out

You can see Danielle's fun challenge here showing how to bring the inside of the card to the outside for Papertrey Ink's Make It Monday. Because I waited until the last minute to attempt this one, I'm not sure I did it exactly right. It's been SO hot here I think my brain got fried. However, I plan to store this technique for future cards, but here's the one I just finished.

It's difficult to see in the photo, but I did add two score lines at the top and one at the bottom to give it a little added texture. Think the spritzing added a lot for something different. 

Supplies: (all PTI unless noted)

Cardstock: Soft Stone, Harvest Gold, Stamper's Select White
Ink: VersaFine Onyx Black, New Leaf and Raspberry Fizz
Stamps: Bitty Bouquets and Wet Paint III
Dies: Limitless Layers 2-1/4" Hearts and Bitty Bouquets
Other: SU Spritzer w/SU Markers (green, yellow & pink) and SU Dimensionals

Papertrey June 2015 Blog Hop Challenge

Well, another month has passed since my last blog post. Yes, our new floors are finally installed, and I'm getting my stamp room back in order slowly but surely. Reorganizing and purging again takes time.

Our PTI challenge this month is to use the photo below to create a card capturing the beauty of the image. Don't you wish you owned a pair of these?

Anyway, while new floors were being installed throughout our house, my BIL's mother decides it's time to see what's happening in Heaven. Unfortunately, we weren't able to attend her funeral in MN (we live in WA), and I refused to buy a card. I knew my sister and BIL would understand. Enough personal chat, on with my belated sympathy card. 

It's pretty self-explanatory when you read my supplies list. 

Supplies: (all PTI unless noted)

Cardstock: SU Basic Gray (under Vellum) and SU Going Gray (base card)
Ink: Kraft, VersaMark and VersaFine Onyx Black
Stamps: Boutique Borders: Sympathy
