Make It Monday #68: Pocket Card -2

For the second card I used Pretty Peonies on Winter Wisteria paper and ink.  The little butterfly is from Beautiful Butterflies.

Make It Monday #68: Pocket Cards

This is my first pocket card for this week's challenge.  I used All About You stamp set, Background Basics Medallion and the other sentiment is from Pretty Peonies.  I am glad that the weather is rainy, then sunny, then rainy again so I don't feel like I need to be outside.  Perfect day for crafting.

Here is my very first entry for Retrosketches.  I saw that my BFF had entered 3 cards and decided I should try also.  The background paper is from Basic Grey Gypsy.  The stamp set is PTI's Simply Jane, with Hawaiian Shore ink and Basic Background Music is stamped on the strip.



View this week's challenge:  Here 
I used PTI's Pretty Peonies stamp set and one butterfly from Butterfly Dreams stamp set.  Also Background Basics Medallions for the design on the Inchies.

This is a set of six birthday cards that I made for my Secret Sister.  I belong to Beta Sigma Phi and Revelation night is Wednesday, our last meeting for the year.  I did a variation of CAS cards.  And actually I have done similar cards like these before, so the ideas had already been formed.   This is her clue as to who her SS is.   We first try to guess who the person is and then there are usually subtle clues inside the card, or not so subtle clues.

Make It Monday #66 Creating Felt Flowers

Here is my second card using Simple Sunflower leaf die to make the flower.  The border is from Rosie Posie and it is on Winter Wisteria card stock.

Make It Monday #66 Creating Felt Flowers with Border Dies

I only have one border die to make the flowers and no PTI felt, so went to Joann's to buy some felt in all colors.  These 3 flowers are various shades of pink felt.  I used Simply Jane stamp set and the double ended banner with an Autumn Abundance Sentiment.  The ink is Aqua Mist and Hibiscus Burst.  Hope you stop by and make a comment.  It makes my day.

I actually got the inspiration for this card at Church this morning.  The man in front of me had this really neat shirt.  Black, beige and white with sailboats and leaves etc.  It didn't turn out like I had pictured, but I do like it. I tried the leaves in black, but it was just too bold, so opted instead for Aqua Mist.  I used Masculine Motiffs stamp set and All About You Sentiments.  This is a retirement card for one of the guys I work with.   I made a second one that says Happy Birthday to You.

Make It Monday #65 Using Patterned Paper Scraps

I used the Rosie Posie stamp and die set for this card.  I actually die cut the flowers and leaves out of the patterened paper and then stamped over that with Winter Wisteria.  The leaves don't look stamped but I used Memento New Sprout.  I used an edger die for the top which I popped up as well as the flowers.  I just noticed I did not put a sentiment on this card.  I am adding a double ended border at the bottom with a sentiment from Sending You stamp set.

Make It Monday #65 Background with Paper Scraps

I did something a little different using my diecuts to cut out the image on the card and putting the patterened paper behind them.  I used Beautiful Butterfiles, Butterfly Dreams, Mat Stack, #1, and Fillible Frame #10.  The sentiment is from Beautiful Butterflies.

Make It Monday #64: Using Color Inspiration - 3

I used the color pallet below for this card.  I did not have Rasberry Fizz or Royal Velvet so used Hibiscus Burst and Paris Dusk and London Fog by Memento.  All About You is the stamp set I used.  I just recently got this set and really like it. 

Make It Monday #64: Using Color Inspiration - 2

Here is my second try with this challenge.  This one was a little easier than the first one.  I used Simply Jane stamp set, the sentiment is from Asian Fusion.  The sentiment is on double ended banner.  The ink is aqua mist, but the orange is Tangelo from Memento.  I don't have Vintage Cream or Fine Linen so used Rustic Cream.  The background stamp is out of Desert Sand from Memento.
