Love You

Hey there friends! Forgive my crazy absence, I’m desperately trying to improve my photography and it’s taken on a life of it’s own!! I’m getting there slowly but I still have a ton of practicing to do. 🙂

I made this card a couple months ago (has it been that long?!) and I’ve been waiting to photograph it until I had at least a little progression in the photography department… haha. I have a bunch more cards coming too. I made this with the Studio Calico Sandlot Card Kit (which is still available as of this posting!). I used some Papertrey Ink dies and stamps as well (which I love… shocker!!).

I’ll be back soon with hopefully better images and some new cards to share. 🙂 Have a great week!!

With Sympathy

Hi there! I’m back with two cards that I made today focusing on condolences. I had to make these at the same time and decided to keep them similar.

image

For the first one, I embossed the sentiment in silver and used some Studio Calico pattern paper (my favorite ones!!) layered underneath the die cut frame. I embellished with a white butterfly and some gems from a past SC card kit.

For this second card I switched out the pattern paper, used different colored gems, and stamped the sentiment in smokey gray.

Making subtle changes but keeping the design the same, made these cards very quick and easy to create. The only plus side in making condolence cards for me, is hoping they put a smile on someone’s face.

Hoping you all have a WONDERFUL day!

Life Is Beautiful

Hey hey hey! Today I have a card to show you using a brand new set I got from Papertrey Ink (I think I’m officially obsessed with their products). This stamp set and coordinating die set are called Life is Beautiful which you can find here. I first fell in love with these because of the butterfly die cuts, but the sentiments that go along with them are just amazing.

image

I made this card for my best friend’s birthday and the sentiment I chose was spot on for this girl. The pattern paper behind the stripes (made with a cover plate also from PTI – found here) as well as the beautiful coral cardstock, enamel dots, and patterned vellum are from Studio Calico. The white paper is stamper’s select from PTI and I used black Hero Arts ink for stamping. **Tip: when stamping on vellum, make sure you let it dry completely. It takes longer to dry than standard paper and cardstock.

Be sure to check out the rest of the positive sentiments you can put together with this stamp set. They will be sure to brighten your day. 🙂 Thanks for stopping by!

More Embellished Elegance

Hello!! Today I have a couple more cards that I made with the Papertrey Ink Embellished Elegance stamp & die set found here. Again, I made a masculine and a feminine version of each card and kept them quite simple. To see more cards I made with this set, check out these posts here, here, and here.

image

For the masculine one, I used gray cardstock as a backdrop and stuck to green and blue for my colors. The green ink is New Leaf from PTI, the blue is Memento Bahama Blue, and the black is from Hero Arts.

For the feminine version, I stuck with a white backdrop. The black ink is from Hero Arts, and the rest of the inks are from PTI: Berry Sorbet, Lemon Tart, and Limeaid Ice.

This set is definitely one I will continue to be digging into. There are so many possibilities with it and I have barely even scratched the surface. Haha… thanks for stopping by!

PTI fun – inspired by their design team

Hi there!! I’ve been playing around with these Papertrey Ink dies and stamps from the Embellished Elegance collection and today I have a couple cards lifted from cards made by their design team. Specifically this one. I just adore the white die cuts. So I decided to give it a try. >>

I had super simple tastes in mind when making this one and I ended up giving it a masculine feel. Great for those guys who aren’t really into too much detail, eh?

This next card is a more feminine play on the first one. I accented the “happy” with some floral stamping but still maintained it’s simplicity.

These were really fun to put together and SO fast. I am looking forward to banging out a few versions of these to keep on hand. 🙂 See you next time!
