Today's the day all the new PTI goodies will be released. YAY! Time to share the rest of my projects with you.
Topiary Trio and Thank You Kindly: This one really came together with the use of BB: Wrought Iron. I'd imagine that any of the 1.75" stamps that we have (and we have a lot!) would work really well on this layout. Here I used one from Dawn's Thank You Kindly, heat embossed in gold on Classic Kraft cardstock.
Phrase Play #5 and Journaling Card Borders: I wanted to show how you could expand the size of the journaling cards by adding the border dies. I thought creating a scene in the open circle was a fun a different way to use it. Supporting players are Flippin' Out, Nativity Silhouette Additions, and BB: Random Stripes.
Birthday Classics: June: This is my favorite set...just because my birthday is July 4th! Maybe I should make a birthday card for myself:). LOL! I haven't found the "Happy 4th of July Birthday" sentiment anywhere else, so I've got to do it justice.
I thought the shape of the main sentiment in this set would work well on Mat Stack 7. It's not a perfect fit, but one that definitely works. I used BB: Random Stripes again in Pure Poppy on Pure Poppy cardstock (tone on tone works great) on the Horizontal Stripes Cover Plate and really think it adds something special.
No Strings Attached, Keep it Simple: Wedding and Seasonal Stitches: Seashells: For a beach wedding. There seems to be a lot of those. Love the random stripe background you can achieve with No Stings Attached. So easy because those string stamps are full sized to fit across both orientations of an A2 card. The sand dollar is cut out of Classic Kraft cardstock and stitched with crochet thread.
Thank You Kindly: A little Copic action on colored cardstock really gives this card some personality. Leaves from Doodlie Do are given the same treatment.
Friendly Flowers and Block Talk: Bright and cheery for summer. A little washi tape gives my Block Talk die cut some pizzazz.
Cat's Meow, Stitched Rectangles, and No Strings Attached: That kitty sure is fun. I think she looks adorable cut out of patterned paper. Also wanted to try using No Strings Attached to make it look like string is threaded through the holes on the Stitched Rectangle Dies. Sweet.
Speaking of kitties, I've had them on my mind lately. Thought I'd show you my latest addition. This is Hamweenie. (We named her after this book and although I lobbied to change it at the last minute despite picking it out in the first place, it has stuck like glue. Sort of just rolls off the tongue now.) She's been with us a little over a week now. Itty bitty little thing. Matt and I haven't gotten a new pet since before we were married. The kids have never had the experience. So although we had some reservations, she's quickly stolen our hearts and brought lots of laughter in our home. Frisky little thing.
Thanks for stopping by and for all your lovely comments this week. They add fuel to the creative fire and that's a very good thing.:)
