May 1st creation

Happy May!

 

I am hoping to resume my daily “matchup” card that I dropped the ball on way back in January.

 

Today’s challenge: Papertrey Ink stamps + Sassafrass Lass paper + shaker card

 

2016 Card 51 - Papertrey Ink On My Couch

 

I forgot how hard shaker cards are LOL.  I avoid them even though I took a class in last year making them from a kit (that I still haven’t finished…ha).   I made two mistakes with this one – forgetting to ground my images and not adding enough sequins.   I do like how it turned out but there is definitely room for improvement on the next one. To add a little pizzazz, I paper pieced the lamp shade, chair and pillow. This is still one of my favorite techniques in crafting!

 

Thanks for stopping by!

 

Supplies~

Stamps: Papertrey Ink On My Couch

Ink: Memento Tuxedo Ink, MFT Gravel Gray hybrid, SU Early Espresso

CS: MFT Daffodil, Whip Cream

PP: Sassafrass Lass Sweet Marmalade

Other: copics, Xpress It high tack foam mounting tape, heat resist acetate, Little Things from Lucy’s Cards in Gold Dust

Card #50!

Hi!

 

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.

Tulips in a Basket

Hello!

 

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.

Have a great day!
