Last Challenge for PTI 11th Anniversary

Friday, February 16, 2018

Wowser what a fun time this release has been and really enjoyed the FB live yesterday. Congrats to the winners, so excited for those that heard there names called. Right straight to the posting as I am so tired. Worked last night then home and put a lamb casserole in the slow cooker and made a big tray of spaghetti bolognese so that I don't have to cook for the next three nights :)

PTI Day 7 Use dies only

Tuesday, February 13, 2018

Day 7 was a call to use dies only for a stamps! I don't think I have ever made a card with dies only until today. I was so happy to be able to shout myself some of the new coordinating Bitty Big papers to make cards with and used them for the first time today for this new challenge.
Hawaiian Shores has to be hands down one of my fav PTI colours. Today I made a birthday card to celebrate PTI's 11th birthday. It was a great thing as I discovered those gorgeous little hearts in a set I bought a few years ago for Valentine cards.

Happy Birthday PTI

I am loving all the happenings at the moment with PTI celebrating 11yrs. Awesome company with the most beautiful stamps. I am just getting this card in by the skin of my teeth lol. I decided to go with Lauries sketch but I turned it around some :) Here is the sketch

 I opened up a new stamp set that I am loving called Flower Power. I had a bit of a splurge last release and I am so keen to play with the new stamps. This set has endless possibilities!
Here is my card, as I said I did turn it around! thanks for visiting.

Really enjoyed watching Stephanie put her card together for this weeks challenge and loved participating!. I did search high and low for some wonderful handmade paper I had been given but could not find anywhere. For sure when I am not looking for it, it shall turn up.
I used paper from a very old crossword dictionary today along with Vellum and a copper foiled heart.

The flower comes from the set Meadow Greens and the sentiment if from a favourite set of mine called The Skinny. Thanks for dropping in today!.

Firstly, I have asked myself after participating in this weeks challenge why don't I always use this technique! I love the effect the shadow stamping has on the sentiment. I also wanted to say how much I fell in love with Lizzie's card this week. I took a second photo as was not sure if the shadowed stamping would show up.

I used a light grey alongside my Enchanted Evening Ink

What a beautiful sketch to start the year off with! I had so not used this beautiful set in a while and love that the flowers always look good coloured or die cut out of patterned paper. Here is the sketch that is up for Janurary

This is my card using the lovely Stamp Set Beautiful Things. After I had put the card together I noticed that my DP was upside down...Ooops
