Packaging Inspiration


Today for the challenge I made this St. Patrick's Day tag. I used the tag inspiration as well as some cork that I saw on another one of the packages. I'm sending a little something to my niece and this will be the perfect tag to go with it. I used the Luck of the Irish stamp set and the doily die from PTI.

Stitching with PTI


Papertrey Ink is celebrating ten years of amazing stamps and there will be lots of challenges and fun. The first challenge is to use stitching. I used the square as inspiration to stitch around my card and of course if your going to stich you also need to include felt. I used the die from Trendy Tree Tops to cut my tree and bird. My sentiment is from the Twig Wreath stamp set. Have fun sewing!

Throw Back

 
PapertreyInk is celebrating their anniversary and have some challenges using older stamps. I just picked up a couple of the new TH oxide inks and couldn't resist playing with wilted violet to make this card. I used Tiny Treats Valentine and Bakers Dozen. I am having fun with this new ink and can't wait for a birthday so I can send this card.

Perfect Pear


 
This week I played along with a Share Joy challenge and used the sketch. I made this card for the owners of the store I work in, as they are a perfect pear. They have had their store open for 15 years and it runs like clockwork because of them. Happy Anniversary!

Masculine Floral




 
 
I took the PapertreyInk Challenge this week to make a masculine floral card. It was perfect timing as I had to make a birthday card for my nephew and I just got the sunflower cutting plate in the mail. So excited to use it. I hope my nephew doesn't think it's too flowery.

Thanks



 
This week I played along with PTI and for their challenge lifted from this card made by Maile Belles. I just loved the look of the gold on craft. I didn't have a good gold ink so I used Versamark to ink and then went over it with my gold Perfect Pearls.

Sketch Challenge



This week I used the Share Joy challenge to make two cards. I wanted to send a card to my son who plays football in college and I needed a card for a friend who is retiring from the National Guard after 30 years of service. It was fun to use the sketch for two very different cards.
