Papertrey Ink June 2013 Blog Hop- A Touch of Gold

I was super excited to take part in this month's Blog Hop, and it is my first PTI BLog Hop! 

Check out the amaaaayzing inspiration board...*drool*

I love the bright colours that are in at the moment, lots of bold blocks. i saw this pic on Pinterest and used it as a colour inspiration

And here's what I did

Even though it only has a 'touch' of gold, I really think that's what makes this card special.

I have some new Chevron dies and love using them- so thats what I used on this card with a gold embossed sentiment.

Hope you likey!

In love with Chevrons

Hi Every one!

This time every week, I am usually taking part in the PTI Make it Monday Challenge, but this time, I have no outline flower stamps with which to take part! So I will have to sit this one out and just enjoy everyone elses creations. But, i thought I would just share with you a few things I have made recently SO here goes:

First up, this is pretty much a direct CASE ( Copy and Stamp Everything) of the amazing Jess Witty's card .  You understand why I just HAD to give it a go.

Supplies- Black and white cardstock (unknown!),Dies:  MFT chevron die, Rosie Posie die, Inks- Stampin up- Melon MAmbo, Real Red, Daffodil Delight,Adirondack Sunset Orange and Versamark, Zing embossing powder, Stamps- Rosie Posie, Over and Under Easy ( both PTI)

I love the boldness of the black and white chevrons, and those flowers add a pop of colour and a whole lotta class. I was in admiration when I saw Jess' version, and it was a pleasure to create this card and see it come to life.

Staying on the chevron theme, made a little set of cards using some scraps of chevron that I had cut out using my new MFT chevron die. THese pics don't capture that lovley Pool Party and Calypso Coral cardstock so well- but it looks great paired with the Kraft in person. 

Cardstock- Crumbcake, CAlypso Coral and Pool Party (SU!), Ink Craft White (SU!), Stamps- You've got mail (HA and Studio Calico), Beautiful Butterflies (PTI)

This next one is an unexpected delight. I was just playing around trying to create a frame with those flourishes, and along happened this card!

Card- Pool PArty (SU!), Stamps- OVer and under Easy, Mini Blooms (PTI)

Using my new embossing mat, instead of cutting out the word 'grateful' I was able to emboss it.

Cardstock- Certainly Celery, So Saffron (SU!), White; Ink- (SU!) and Stamps Simple Sunflower and THe Sweet Life (PTI) Ribbon- cheapo ones from the $2 store!

Glad you were able to join me today people :) Hope you found something here that made you smile.

Make it Monday #120- Overlapping Ombre

Ooh I am excited about this one- I love stamping... I know there are lots of techniques you can use to make cards, but let's face it....there ain't nothing like stamping :)

Here is my take on this week's MIM challenge. I used the hexagon background from Rosie Posie across the page and then stamped the word 'hello' using some new stamps i picked up from Kmart yesterday! The stamp set had some quotation marks which I used at the top, and then drew in some loopy lines...which look telephone cords!

Thanks for stopping by everyone :) Looking forward to seeing everyones projects!



Ink- Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie, Calypso COral, Melon Mambo and Real Red (all SU!)
Stamps- Rosie Posie (PTI) Creativ Stamp set.
Card: Very Vanilla and Calypso Coral (SU!)
