Thanks June PTI Bloghop

PTI Blog Hop

 

Time for the Papertrey Ink June Blog Hop!

 

This month’s inspiration photo:

 

 

 

Supplies:  PTI Black Cardstock, Quilled Elegance, Embroidered Blooms; 
Zig Markers, Watercolor paper, Wink of Stella
 

I found lots of inspiration from the artist’s website but everything I made looked messy to me so I went back to my old standby of clean and simple.  This was my first attempt with the Zig’s and so far the Zig’s are winning.  I need to practice with them, a lot…  I used them here without water.

Thanks for stopping by and happy hopping!

Happy Birthday PTI February Blog Hop

PTI Blog Hop
Time for the Papertrey Ink February Blog Hop!
This month’s inspiration photo:
Supplies:  PTI White Cardstock, Sequin; SU Stamps, DP; Sugar Peas Die; Copics
 

I made this card for my sweet and very talented friend Kate at Pinned and Penned.  I wasn’t able to join in her birthday blog hop but I wanted her to know I was thinking of her and to wish her a Happy Birthday even if it is a little lot late.

 

I hate using my white PTI CS for bases that get covered up with DP, rather than directly stamped on,  but it is so sturdy it tends to be what I use most when I only have light top layers.

Day 3 PTI BD Challenges Thinking of You

Day three of Papertrey Ink’s 9th Birthday celebration and challenges. Be sure to check out Nicole’s page and join in the fun if you can!

 

Day 3 Challenge: Create a new project that is created with supplies you grab and gather together in 5 minutes.  
Supplies: All PTI

 

What’s funny or not so funny if you ask my husband, all the supplies were out and within reach of my craft table for this card.  The base and panel were in a baggie waiting to be made into Christmas cards (that didn’t happen), the flower stamp and die set just happened to on the table where I set it while I was looking for something else and the impression plate was still sitting on my big shot from when I used it a few days ago.  You see, I am a procraftanator, I plan to craft so I have get the supplies out but then it actually takes me awhile to craft and when I am finished crafting I think to myself, oh that was fun I will make something else right after I finish doing this or that and then I don’t go back to crafting for a few days…  But hey my supplies are right there where I need them at least until I can’t find them because they are buried under other craft supplies…
Please, please, please tell me I’m not the only one that does this.

 

Thanks so much for stopping by!

PTI 9th BD Day 1 Challenge Too Long

It’s hard to believe it because it seems like just yesterday I found PTI but they have been around for 9 years now!  I have been a fan since late in that first year and I will be a fan for as long as they are around.  This is my favorite time of year too because today starts two weeks of contests and I hope to join in all of them but will be have even if I only make a few as the eye candy from the challenges is fantastic.  Be sure to check out Nicole’s page and join in the fun if you can!

 

Day one challenge is to choose a color recipe and create a card with those colors, I chose Ashley’s color combo and I CASE’d her lovely card!
