Make It Monday #59: Computer Generated Sentiments on Die Cuts #2

This is my second project for MIM #59.  I used Nicole Heady's idea of making a booklet to keep a list of my birthdays. Click here Nicole for a look at her's. I made one for a friend at work and decided I needed one myself.  Mine is not as elaborate as the one I made for my friend but that isn't as elaborate as Nicole's either.  It was fun to make and I loved how they turned out.  I used Pure Poppy ink and paper with Memento Pear Tart and Simply Jane stamp set.

Papertrey March Blog Hop Challenge

This is the last card that I made for the birthday set, but also is being entered into the PTI Blog Hop Challenge.  I really like the aqua mist and yellow together.  I used Rosie Posie Stamp set.

These are a set of birthday cards I made to go along with the birthday calendar previously posted.  I have one more card to add to this, but need to save it for PTI's Blog Hop that will be posted on Sunday.  These were all made on the same fun weekend I spent with Col....


My Bff, Col came up Thursday, the 15th and spent 6 days with me.  We were pretty much holed up in my craft studio for most of the time.  What a great time we had.  These are some of the cards I made while she was here.  We seem to really get inspiration from one another.  The first two pictures are a birthday calendar that Nicole shared on her blog.  I made it for one of my friends at work for her birthday in May and the third one is her b-day card using my newly acquired Simply Jane stamp set for both.  I made another Simply Jane card using different colors, Autumn Rose and Aqua Mist.  The last card is for my daughter in law who has a birthday on Monday, the 26th, using the PTI Anniversary set, Pretty Peonies.  Fun, fun, fun.

Make It Monday #58 - Graduated Background - 2

This was my second attempt in the graduated background using Copics.  The first one was a disaster.  I used It's A Jungle Out There and the Willow tree stamp.  The sentiment is also from It's a Jungle.

Make It Monday #58- Graduated Backgrounds

This is my first card for MIM Graduated Backgrounds.  I used Crayola watercolor paint on PTI white card stock and mounted on Pure Poppy card stock.  The balloon is stamped also with Pure Poppy and the sentiment is from Butterfly Dreams.

Make It Monday #57 Participants - 2

This is my second card using Egg Hunt stamp set.  The kissing is from Background Basics Twinkle, the grass from Botanical Silhouettes and the sentiment from Sweet Spring. Oh and the butterflies from Beautiful Butterflies.  Fun card to make.

Make It Monday #57: Colored Kissing

Here is my first MIM for the week, using Iconic Images pitcher and flowers.  I also used the Background Basics Medallions with Versamark for the background.  The label is from Sweet Spring.  Of course in my lovely purples.


Two birthday cards that I can post now that I have given them to my sister and BFF.  The first one is the Rosie Posie for my dear friend of 52 years and the second is Lace Bouquet for my sister.  The third was just another card from Lace Bouquet.

Here is my second card for MIM using Sending You stamp set and PTI Kraft and Pure Poppy Cardstock, then added a little yellow to brighten it up.

Make it Monday #56: Die Cutting Partial Images

This card is for MIM Die Cutting Partial Imagies using Butterfly Dreams and SS Butterfly.  The paper is Aqua Mist and Berry Sorbet.  I was not really happy with it until I added the Double Ended Banner and butter.  Still want to try another card.
