Make It Monday #262 with Ashley - Pumpkin Stamps 3 Ways

So I really struggled with this card.  I tried to make the flower like Ashley did, but just wasn't loving it unless I cased it exactly.  Then I went with these butterflies trying to do something different, but the first couple of cards were just too ugly, so took a break, came back to this and I like it much better, although these are kind of funky looking butterflies. 

I didn't make any other cards for this challenge, but here is one that I made previously 

All PTI products except the Avery Elle Dotted Border Dies.

Thanks for stopping by.

Just Us Girls #361 Color Week with Nancy & Addicted to CAS #97 Stitched

After about a week and a half of mid 70s weather, we are stuck with a rainy, dreary day today and looks like tomorrow too.  Ugh, not ready for winter yet.  Great for playing in my craft room though.
It's been a few weeks since I have entered a card in JUGS 
Nancy has a color challenge this week.


And I will also enter this in Addicted to CAS 

MFT Flashy Florals in PTI's Pure Poppy, Memento's Dandelion, & Versafine Black Onyx 
PTI's Noted Scallop embossed on front.
Some Clear Wink of Stella on flower centers
Border was made with MFT Diagonal Stripes BG stamp.
I struggled quite a bit trying to mask the flowers but they just weren't turning out, hence no masking on this one.
I don't know it might still need a bit more yellow on it? 

Thanks for stopping by.

The Heart Desires #4

My card for this month's The Heart Desires 

I took the colors and the element of black & white stripes.  I love black and white so made a page of them to use on my cards.  I used and MFT Diagonal Stripes Background Stamp and that trusty Misti so I could get really good coverage.  I forgot to stamp the sentiment in gray so had to put some tiny butterflies in gray.

Avery Elle Butterflies, MFT Diagonal Stripes BG stamp, PTI's Berry Sorbet & Vintage Jadeite, Memento's Dandelion & H/A Soft Granite.

CAS Mix Up September 2016

I finally remembered to get some shaving cream so I could make a card for CAS Mix Up 

I have done this technique before at one of  PTI's SAFs, but had to review the procedure.  I really like this technique and it is so easy to get these amazing results.  Although once I had the marbling done, I had a hard time trying to make my card.  Success at last.

PTI's inks, Lemon Tart, Orange Zest, Summer Sunrise and Terracotta Tile, Noted Scallop A,  Linen Cardstock, 
MFT Beautiful Blooms.  I used dies, marbling, stamping & there is pretty scallop embossing around the oval.  Not sure if you can see it. 

Thanks for stopping by.

PTI's Create Along with Us September 2016

After about 6 tries with the wreath, I finally got one that I liked.  This is for Create Along with Us. 

I chose this card by Heather to use as inspiration.

I used lots of stamp sets to create this wreath.  First started off with Wreath for all Seasons in Classic Kraft, then used the Tag Its #9 for the small little holly sprig in Ripe Avocado in Spring Moss and the Poinsettia in Pure Poppy.  The little berries are from Enclosed Bell.
And the sentiment is from Wet Paint Holiday
I really love how it came out.
PTI Border - Can't remember what the name is.
