Has it really been a month since my last post?? July has been a whirlwind of activity here and I must be honest to say, I'm glad for the little bit of a break. It's also given me time to take out my card making supplies and join in on some online fun! Ashley Canon Newell gave a great challenge to create a wallpaper background. You can find all the details HERE Nicole's blog. Here's the card I made:
The double line stamp is from Simon Says Stamp, while all other stamps are from PTI's "Wishing You" set. Thanks for visiting! Blessings~ Birgit
Good Wednesday morning! It's time for the PaperTrey Ink June Blog Hop and I just fell in love with the fun, summery colors they picked. My first card uses this color scheme:
Yummy? I know! Here's my card using this sketch:
So I used some really old PTI sets on this one. It was fun finding little things to fit inside the little frames. PTI Products Used: Green Thumb, Wishing You..., Flower Fusion #7 & #11 and the sentiment is from Topiary Trio's. Thanks for looking! Blessings~ Birgit
This week's PTI ~ Make it Monday challenge is by the fabulous Danielle Flanders on using vellum overlays on your cards. I admit that I don't use a lot of vellum so this one was a bit of a challenge for me. I embraced the challenge and made two cards using vellum overlays. Here's the first card I made:
For this card I used vellum to soften the boldness of the chevron background and also on top of my butterflies.
Products Used: Vertical Chevron Impression Plate from PTI, Beautiful Butterflies from PTI My other card is a Christmas card. You can never get started too early! It's always kind of fun for me when it's 80 degrees outside to work with Christmasy images.
Products used: Kraft cardstock base, printed paper from MME, Poinsettia stamp from Year of Flowers from PTI, Sentiment from Happiest of Holidays from PTI Thanks for looking! Blessings~ Birgit
Here's my final card using Melissa Phillip's challenge technique found on Nicole's blog. This one is my favorite because I love the blue and yellows together. I saw a bouquet of flowers at the grocery store the other day in these colors and was inspired to use them.
Again, Rosie Posie was my choice of flowers for this card. I went with a single layer inlaid die cut card. Thanks for looking! Blessings~ Birgit
