PTI MIM #288: Pantone Chip Inspired Cards

Rushing to beat the deadline for this week's Make It Monday with Lexi for Papertrey Ink. It was too darn hot (mid-high 90s) in Western Washington to even think about creating anything until this evening. That is very rare here so most of us don't have air conditioning so it can be unbearable. Earlier this week my DH had me helping him paint our two decks and main entryway, including umpteen spindles. So glad that's over with for a few more years!

Anyway, the challenge was to be inspired by Pantone ink chips for our design and layout. This will be a technique I'll keep in the back of my mind for future quick and simple cards. Thanks, Lexi, for sharing this with us. Here's my take on the challenge. 

Thanks for stopping by, and I really do appreciate your comments. 

Supplies: (all PTI unless noted)

Cardstock: Stamper's Select White and Bright Buttercup
Ink: Bright Buttercup, Green Parakeet, New Leaf and VersaFine Onyx Black
Stamps: Some Like It Hot and Signature Greetings
Dies: Some Like It Hot
Other: Foam Tape, MS Scoring Tool and Gelly Roll Glitter Pen

Kathy, your card is so cute! This has been one of my favorite MIMs, it quick and simple and you can use almost anything on the chip! Sorry you're getting such hot weather, the one thing I dislike about summer is the heat! Stay cool!
