Card #50!



This is Card #50 for the year!!


I made this one for the basket swap I mentioned in my previous post.  I love these sweet daisies and the Country Garden papers from Bo Bunny were perfect for it.  I used the current sketch challenge at The Paper Players.


2016 Card 50 - Papertrey Ink Vintage Picnic


I colored the image with copics and cut it out with my MFT Mini Scallop Stitched Circle Stax.  The base patterned paper was cut from MFT’s Blueprints 24 and I added a few Doodlebug sprinkles.


Here is the sketch~

Tulips in a Basket



I needed to make a card for a Never Been Used Before stamp card swap. I chose Papertrey Ink’s Vintage Picnic and Vintage Picnic sentiments sets. I have had these sets for years and took them out for a basket swap but decided to make this card first.


2016 Card 49 - Papertrey Ink Vintage Picnic


I colored up the tulips and basket with my copics and matted the image.  I paired the image with Authentique’s Be{you}tiful papers.   The yellow paper and the banner were cut with MFT’s Blueprints 24.  I added a few Doodlebug glitter sprinkles, my current favorite embellishments.


I used the current sketch from Sketch Saturday.

Bitty Butterflies

Yes, I’m back with a mid-day post (thank you pre-scheduling!)


I made this card a few weeks ago for a butterfly swap and forgot to share it.  I used Papertrey Ink’s new Bitty Butterflies cover die and coordinating stamp set.  I popped up a few of the butterflies.  The colors were from one of PTI’s anniversary challenges – Stormy Sea, Aqua Mist, Smokey Shadow, Mint Julep (I subbed SU Pistachio Pudding) and Tropical Teal.

Papertrey July Blog Hop Challenge

Hello!  I have been so engrossed with my Christmas in July card series that it slipped my mind about the PTI blog hop. I’m glad I was able to make a card for it tonight!


Here is the inspiration photo. I loved the butterflies, purple and the touches of gold, so that’s what I incorporated in my card.

I used the Beautiful Butterflies stamp set, Beautiful Butterflies Layers stamp set and Vintage Cream, Gold & Winter Wisteria cardstock, all from PTI.


2015 Card 75 - Papertrey Ink Beautiful Butterflies


The gold layer was embossed with a Sizzix embossing folder from my stash.  The butterflies were stamped with SU inks in Wisteria Wonder, Perfect Plum and Elegant Eggplant.


I am off to visit a few stops on the hop. Have a great night!
