Papertrey Paper Dolls Challenge #11

*****Just a quick note:  I have updated the tab above "Button Rings for Sale".  If you are interested in one, please let me know!  All information is on that page including my email to order one!*****

On with the card right?  This card was made for the Papertrey Paper Dolls Challenge #11 hosted by Anika!  This challenge was to make a different sized card other than the standard size.  I chose to make a tall and skinny one like Anika did.  I don't think I've made a tall and skinny one since I first started card making!!

I used Friends til the End stamp set and most of the sentiments too!  I also went through my stamps and found another circle stamp that fits perfectly in the medium scallop die from PTI!!

Have a wonderful day!

New goodies!

Well, here I am with a card using my new goodies from PTI.......I did promise a card today didn't I?  We've been having some computer connection issues so this was the first chance to upload my pictures!

I had to bust out my Just the Ticket stamp set from PTI along with their AWESOME ticket die to match!  I mean PTI has thought of everything!  Brilliant....I tell ya!

I also paired this set up with another new die from this past PTI release.....the Spiral Notebook Page die!   I see myself using this all the time!  The colors here are Smokey Shadow and the new color Harvest Gold.  It is such a nice shade of yellow.....I really think it will now be my new favorite PTI yellow!

Loving these daffodils.........

Happy Monday!!  Well, first of all I am back from Cabo, San Lucas and second, I didn't get any posts scheduled while I was gone did I?  I just had too many things on my to-do list before vacation.

So, I wanted to post this card I made using YOF: Daffodils.  I LOVE how it turned out!

I used a fun border punch that to me look like butterflies and a fun loopy ribbon treatment! 
I also ran my daffodil cardstock through my Big Shot with the Linen and Canvas impression plate.

Well, vacations are wonderful but it is sure nice to be back HOME!!

2s4y sketch

So it's time for another 2s4y sketch!!  I got some new goodies in the mail today and
just had to try them out with this sketch!
It was the first time ordering from MFT stamps!  I soo think I will be ordering again! 
Here is the sketch this week!

Here is my version using a couple of new dies and stamps.  I also broke out my Library Ledger paper for this one too!  I think this paper collection goes really well with Ocean Tides!

I now wish that I had continued the polka dota up the entire front of the card base but oh well!  These were stamped in Chamomile ink on Rustic White cardstock.

I am in LOVE with the new die that makes these little rosettes!! 
Here they are up close.

So what do you think?  I'd love to hear your thoughts!!
Starting Wednesday, I will be MIA as I will be in sunny Cabo, San Lucas on vacation but
I may have a post or two scheduled.......We'll see how the packing goes!

Practicing Creativity Sketch Challenge and OTWC challenge #15: A Combo

I am here playing along with 2 challenges:  Practicing Creativity Sketch Challenge and the Off the Wall Craftiness Challenge #15.  I wanted to play along with the Practicing Creativity sketches and low and behold the Off the Wall Craftiness challenge this week was color and their sponsor is Practicing Creativity!!  So I had to combine these two challenges! 

My card uses You're Dandy stamp set from Practicing Creativity.....If you know me, I LOVE dandelions!  I look for new images all the time.  I found some really thin cork scraps in my stash and used them here as a mat and border!  I think I will be using me some more cork!! 

Here is Alice's sketch from Courtney's blog that I'm playing along with!

Now the next challenge is from the blog of Kim Wilson called Off the Wall Craftiness and it was to use
teal and tangerine!  These are sooo not my colors but I had to give it a try.....look at her inspiration photo below!!  I see yellows in there too but she clarified that it's "teal and tangerine" on her post and you could add white, cream, or black.  So, to finish my card off, I added some ivory pearls and ivory satin ribbon.
When I look at the inspiration photo, I see beaches and the ocean.......just where I'll be next week as my hubby and I will be off on a trip to Cabo, San Lucas!!  Lots of relaxation!

Why don't you go check out these challenges??  I am having soo much fun with them the past week!!
Have a great weekend!

I had to go back in time and find my first PTI stamp set.......So, I have a challenge of  my own! 
Can you guess which PTI set my card is made from? 
Hint:  it's NOTHING baby related!

I did have to think outside the box for my "baby" card but I LOVE how it turned out!!  I sooo want PTI to release their own BANNER SET!!!  Please please please!!  So, I created a banner of my own!

Any guesses yet?  Here is a close up picture of the border I created with one of the stamps from this set. 
Another hint:  I only used 2 total stamps from this set!  (and Baby Button Bits)

2S4Y sketch

I have been eyeing these sketches for a while now and finally got down to participating in this one!  I really liked this simple sketch and here is my version for 2 Sketches 4 You sketch!!
Used some new goodies one this one.....the Library Ledger paper and my Tea for Two stamp sets/dies. 

I ran a small strip of kraft cardstock through with the woodgrain Impression plate so the teapot looks like it's sitting on the table top!  You can't tell at all but I tried to distress the woodgrain strip with tea dye duo but the ink kept blending into the kraft cardstock!  I guess I will try my dark chocolate ink the next time!

Here is the sketch from 2S4Y.....why don't you come play along? 

Have a great day and thanks for visiting!
