Coffee Time

Just a fun card today.  I wanted to ink up the coffee cup images on Papertrey Ink's Heart 2 Heart #1 stamp set and coordinating die.  I thought it would go perfect with Prima's Coffee Break paper collection.

Prima's chalk ink add colors to the cups.  A PTI doily die anchors the images, and lace is added for texture.  I'm submitting this to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: Anything Goes.

Thanks for stopping by!

Stamping Mania

For my card today, I did a lot of stamping, no designer paper here.  (No sun today, so I had to take the picture indoors.)

The challenge for Papertrey Ink's Make it Monday #206 was to create a card using 3 mixed stamped patterns.  For the pink striped pattern, I used a 3 inch stripe stamp from the Mat Stack 1 collection.  The next pattern uses a single polka dot from the Polka Dot Basics set, stamped in green atop a text stamp. The third, bigger pattern uses stamps from the Rosie Posie stamp set.  The sentiment is from the Wonderful Words: Birthday Mini stamp set.  The edges were inked with Distress Inks.

I'm also submitting this card for the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge: One Stamp, Many Ways, using the stamps to create a background.

Thanks so much for taking a peek!

Hello Friend Card

It's a rainy, windy day today and my card fell over before taking a picture, so please excuse the rain stain on the card.  I wanted to take part in the Papertrey Ink March Blog Hop.  This card is easy to make, the only time consuming part is ruffling the seam binding on the bottom.

Inspiration came from this picture:

Supplies I used:

Stamps: Rosie Posie, Damask Design, Wet Paint
Paper: Aqua Mist Cardstock, Bitty Dot Basics Pattern Paper
Die: Rosie Posie die set 

Thanks for stopping by!

Easter Card for MIM #205

Hello there!  When I read Papertrey Ink's Make It Monday this week, I wanted to try it out. I decided to make an Easter card using some new supplies I received in a recent haul.

I used the negative space left over of the Egg die as a mask as I did my stamping.  The stamped images are from the Hippity Hoppity Mini stamp set.  And before removing the mask, I lightly inked the edge with a distress ink to give the egg shape definition.  The mini flower and heart image are from other PTI stamp sets.

The image was stamped on Tag Sale #3 die cut.  The felt flower was die cut from the Heart to Heart #7 die.  The button is from the Vintage Buttons set.  The paper collection is from Simple Stories and added string and lace trim to complete the card. 

I love this technique and plan to use it on more cards. 

Thanks so much for stopping by!
