CAS-ual Friday's Mostly Monochromatic

Hello,

Today i have a card for CAS-ual Friday's challenge. The challenge is to use a monochromatic (3 colors) plus 1 color (brown). To add to my Christmas stash i decided to make a Christmas card.



I was actually was going to use different stamps, squares actually, but when i tried to add them to my card with the ribbon and bow, my card just wasn't big enough. So instead i used the string of lights. I stamped the cord in brown ink. Then for the lights i used a dark and a lighter greenish/blue ink. To get the 3rd (lightest color) i stamped it off once before stamping my card.


I tied a brown and silver bow across the top. I stamped the sentiment sending holiday joy in brown also. Last i added some liquid pearl to the middle of each light.


Thanks for stopping by!!

Papertrey Ink's September Blog Hop

Hello,

Welcome to Papertrey Ink's September Blog Hop! This month there is another photo for inspiration:
Sept-Blog-Hop-Inspiration

I really like the lines in this picture. To me it was kind of retro, especially with the gold doors. So used the these lines as my inspiration.


For my card i used double sided tape and my craft mat to lay down the the lines. Then i used red glitter on the outer rectangle and green on the inner rectangle.


Next i used the Christmas Label Stamp set and die. I used the die with pattern paper and stamped the matching label in a red ink. I stamped Holly Jolly in green with fun below it in black ink.

To spruce up the label i added stickles glitter around the oval the label makes with clear glitter and with green make to dots at each end. Last i adhered it to the card with pop up dots!!

Thanks for stopping by!!

Make It Monday # 31 - Make a Background

Hello,

Today i have a card i made for PTI's Make It Monday. This is a birthday card for a coworker who's birthday is this week. The MIM challenge is to use a regular stamp as a background. I used 2 stamp's from the same set.



I started with a purple pattern paper and stamped the background with purple ink. Then i punched a border along the bottom edge. Next i punched some holes at the top left corner and along the right side. I also distressed the edges with ink.


Next i cut a die shape from card stock and stamped a border in the shape. In a very light purple i stamped Happy Birthday. Next i used PTI's new Bloom Builders #3. I added a white button to the middle and adhered it to the top corner of the die cut. Then i added a few rhinestone and last adhered this to the card with pop up dots.


Thanks for stopping by!!

Make It Monday - Thank You's

Hello,

Whew what a week!! Classes started this week, plus i had to finish a wedding gift, go to the wedding and at work we went paperless this week. I am so glad i get a day off tomorrow!


Today i have 2 cards, both thank you cards. The 1st one is for PTI's Make it Monday. The second is for a coworker who donated tickets for a silent action we have been having at work to raise money for breast cancer. The 1st card is for the coworkers mother who also donated tickets.


I used the marigold from Year of Flowers Collection, stamping them in brown ink on rustic cream cardstock. I colored them colored pencils and distressed the edges. Then i matted this on dark orange paper and sewed around the edge with brown thread. I wrapped twine around this and adhered it with a button. I stamped thanks three times on a tiny tag.


Next i adhered the rectangle to a autumn pattern paper with pop up dots. Then i adhere this to my card base.


For my next card i cut the guitar out of red, black, blue, green and orange cardstock. I used versamark and iridescent embossing powder on the black guitar. Then i stamped a modern red rectangle and stamped thanks inside. Next i used a couple different stamps to make the background, using white ink on black cardstock. I added a strip of pattern paper with sheet music.

I adhered the guitars over the sheet music with pop up dots and add the sentiment to the bottom right.

Have a great holiday!!
