May 2012 Release Projects

Wrapping the release week festivities up here with the rest of my projects. Really love these cards. A few of them have already got stamps on them and have been mailed out. Hopefully bring smiles those I love as well as all you loyal blog readers.

Framed Out #4. I like the patterned paper within the white on white frame. But let's face it, this card is really all about the Chevron Border dies and patterned paper. Fun and easy to do and you'll have lots of leftovers for other cards.

Heart-2-Heart #4. The loopy border from Tremendous Treats: Birthday really came in handy as telephone cords on this card. Similar stamps can also be found on Tiny Treats: Birthday and Little Bitty Bird. Just some options for ya. Also used Winter Wisteria for the first time. Sweet color.

Flippin' Out and Fillable Frame Sentiments. So much fun to make. Diggin' the color scheme of Aqua Mist, Summer Sunrise, Orange Zest, Canyon Clay, Fresh Linen, and Ocean Tide. And seriously, how versatile is that landscape stamp from "On the Farm"?

Happy Hydrangeas. Like many of you, one of my favorite flowers. I was a bit fixated on the gradient colors one head of hydrangea blossoms. So instead of trying to replicate that on the stamp, I did it on the background with Spring Rain, Winter Wisteria, and Plum Pudding. I masked off a square and created an "ink frame" with a Tim Holtz ink applicator tool (a must have if you don't have one). I also like the bow upside down for some reason.

Thanks for stopping by. Here's a list of the other PTI blogs for easy navigation as you check out the rest of the creations this month.
