May PTI Blog Hop!

Hi everyone!  I can't believe it's been almost 2 weeks since my last post!  Sorry for the dry spell but life has been BUSY!  Not to mention the weather has had me so nervous that I couldn't hardly function the last several days!  But I'm here today with my blog hop card (finally) for the PTI blog hop!



This month's theme was flowers.......our favorite take on using flowers on our projects!
Well, this was super easy........I tend to reach for flowers more than anything!

I saw this awesome card by Vicky over at Lily Pad Cards recently and wanted to CASE it and this month's blog hop challenge was perfect!  I have been "collecting" Distress Inks lately with my Michael's coupons....anyone else like this?  Hehe.  After making this card, I can't wait to get more colors to use for flowers!  Check it out..........



There are several layers of embossed flowers and fussy cutting but I LOVE how this turned out!  So CAS!  I love all that white space to let the flower shine!  This shot lets you see the dimension of the flower.



The challenge over at Lily Pad Cards is to do embossing--any type!  I will definitely do more of these cards with these Distress Inks!  Well friends, have a great time with the rest of the blog hop!

{Thank You}

PTI Emboss Resist Challenge!!

Oh, the festivities over at PTI are just so much fun!!  Today Nichole Heady posted a new feature coming soon:  a weekly technique challenge!  So, we start off with an Emboss Resist technique!  It has been a long time since I've tried out this technique...but the results are stunning!  Here is my entry into this challenge!!
I used my one of my favorite sets:  Heart Prints for this challenge as well as a new MS border punch!
Don't you think that bow is just wonderful?  I am getting much better after watching Dawn's bow tying video! You've got to check it out if you are having trouble tying bows!!

Here's is another view of my card.

Thanks for visiting!!

On my Couch!!


Has anyone used this stamp set yet? Well, I am addicted to using it and you will be tired of it once I show you all that I've made with it!! You can literally "upholster" your couch with anything you want!! Here I stamped the couch stamp on some patterned paper by My Mind's Eye, cut it out, and then just matched up the paper with some cardstock from PTI. Also paired this set with the newest Polka Dot Basics II set. Love these polka dots because they are much closer together than the original set. However, you can't have one polka dot set without the other, right? The background dots are heat embossed on kraft cardstock with clear embossing powder. The mini dot "wallpaper" is also from this new set.




Do you see another of my new purchases? It is my most favorite punch yet.......the Fiskars Apron Lace border punch!!! I finally broke down and bought it with my Archiver's coupon. HAD to have it!!! Check out that bow.....Isn't it the perfect bow?? It was the easiest thing to make using Nichole's post here. This bow paired with that Aqua Mist button was just the right touch!! Oh, I have to say that I am in LOVE with the matching products.....buttons, ribbon, ink, and cardstock!!!


Hope you all have a nice day!!

Baby Announcement

I know my little princess is now 3 years old!!!! But I couldn't resist posting her baby announcements that I sent out after her birth. This was made by using vellum with my journaling on it (ran through computer printer). I attached the photo by sliding it under that little piece of cardstock stapled to the base!! So, behind the pic is the computer generated info on vellum!! I LOVE to do this on cards....it was just the subtle effect I was looking for on her announcements!! The word baby was embossed with clear embossing powder several times!
