Pucker Up

This challenge from Papertrey Ink was so much fun.  I never would have thought to use glossy accents to make it look like condensation.  I love how it turned out.

This weeks PapertreyInks challenge was to create your own confetti with one of your dies.  I still needed to make another St.Patricks day card so I used the heart from the Trendy Tree Tops die to make my shamrocks.  Not sure if it is really counts as confetti but I think it works.

Metal Frame

This is a very cool frame that I made in a class at Memory Bound today.  It was so easy and fun to do.  I can't wait to make more.  We embossed the metal and then attached it to the frame.  Then we put black paint on it and wiped most of it off then sanded.  Tada! Of course I had to buy more embossing folders.

Watercolor Backgrounds

This weeks PTI challenge is to use watercolor for an embossed image.  I surprisingly didn't have any watercolor paints but I did have my distressed ink and it worked wonderfully.  This was my second try and I like how it turned out simple but very pink. The first try was on textured paper and my clear embossing powder had been compromised with some black. Bla I'm glad I tried again.

Layering Dye & Pigment Ink

This was a fun Make It Monday from PaperTrey Ink.  First you stamp with a pigment ink to match your paper (I used white). You let that dry and then stamp your image over it with a dye ink and you can see the design.  I decided to die cut out the buttons instead of stamping them right on the jar.  Pretty cool technique.

Sketch Challenge #2

I just had to try another sketch/color challenge from Papertrey Ink.  I guess I am in the stitching mood because this is the second card I have made with stitching.  Of course I am also using a lot of sequins these days.  I already have my valentines done for the year so on to the next holiday.

Today's Papertrey's challenge is to take seven minutes to pick out seven supplies and then make the card in 17 minutes.  I used three different stamp sets to make this card so that took up a lot of my supplies.  I am a big fan of sequins so I had to have some of those too.  What a fun challenge to get you moving! Yeah Papertrey Ink!
