Make It Monday
Create Along With Us
This release week at PTI so we make card that was inspired by the release. For me it was the Big Apple Die Tag/Gift card piece and all the teacher sayings.
I thought of my Apple prints stamps and die set. I also used the Teacher die from the Wonderful Words:Teacher set. I stamped out the first card in Pure Poppy and Scarlet Jewel Ink; the top apple was masked while the other were stamped in. I used the edgers die and twine from May Arts. On second card they were stamped in Scarlet Jewel and Autumn Rose.

Lawn Fawnatics- Fun With Dies
I paired my favorite Sprinkled with Joy Set with the Scalloped Treat Box. This kitchen set is a favorite go to for all kinds of reasons ..but when the add on to scallop box started to come out I just had to make one for Kitchen Treats feel.
I started with LF Perfectly Plaid/ Iced Latte paper, stamped everything out in some LF Jet Black Ink and did some coloring in Copic markers. I stamped out the entire kitchen stove before assembly and made the add- on in the same paper. Then piecing the oven in place for it to open, The oven window is covered in acetate adding to the stability. By not cutting into the box at this point the baking cookies show nicely. Additionally I stamped up the handle. I made some open shelving for the other kitchen bits to rest on placed on the sides of the box. Inked the box in LF Merman Ink to add a finishing touch.
For the back I added the Spring House add on roof cut in LF Knock On Wood patterned paper. I added the LF 'For You' sentiment on the back. I lined the scalloped edges on the inside tops with some red paper for added color and strength for closure. I even see more ways to make this...gosh only so much time in a day!

Purple and Polka dots..so I was inspired by the paper started to use the the colors for my shamrocks. Just adding a little spunk to the cards.On the top card I have some blended enchanted evening for the background. The brown shamrock is Delicata Brown shimmer ink.
My second card base paper is spring moss paired with the PTI Egg Hunt patterned paper. The new Purple Allure cardstock adds the color pop! I used Limeaid Ice Ink which pairs with lot of the yellow greens well (an amazing ink!).
The third card I used Purple Allure and Lilac Grace...oh yes two new favorite sisters! The paper is from G45. For the last two I used the PTI Frame It/ Oval die. I made enough bits to make some for family and friends as I know they will enjoy these Irish Blessing sentiments.
Happy St Patricks Day

Make It Monday Challenge
Color Wheel Cards
For this week challenge , no will ever know it was color wheel challenge after all it is a ferris wheel and they well are just colorful happy little things!My ferris wheel is die cut, inked and doubled layered up so that the chairs are able to float in the air. I layered up the die ribbon with sentiment edgeing off in the center. Since the ferris wheel was not fully round ..it still was doable to get all the colors in since chairs are small.

Challenge is to take card you have made in the past and transformation it...add it / change it.
The card I made in the past (a MIM challenge) ..when you opened it the 'hello stayed on the back panel of the card and pop up to the front. It was was the focal point of card ... and I thought it was kinda cute. The phone was stamped with lots of white space. So I made the new one with the same PTI Noted Hello die only dropping in the patterned paper on the top panel only. The phone is die cut from the set PTI Heart to Heart # 4; using a sentiment from the set. The loop is from a border die by MFT. Small heart from Stampin Up. I used Hibiscus Burst cardstock. Patterned paper from Stephanie Barnard. The stitching is die cut from Little Inkers.I hope you like the new one !
