Wallpaper Background

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

Happy For You!

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

Card #4 ~ PTI's Make it Monday Challenge

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
