PTI No Stamps - All Dies Card Challenge

It's Papertrey Ink's 11th Anniversary! YAY! To celebrate they've had tons of inspiration and challenges along the way. My cards for today are for the Use Only Dies - No Stamps! Challenge. With so many amazing dies, this was a fun and easy challenge. I made some valentine cards using some Yupo paper I just got with alcohol inks. So fun to use!




The hearts are cut from 1 sheet of Yupo that I put about 4 colors on plus some pearl fixative. The word dies are die cut from flocked black paper and on the base of my cards, I sprayed some Perfect Pearls through a stencil.

Thanks for visiting!

Ingredients: PTI Limitless Layers: Hearts, XOXO; Reverse Confetti Hearts stencil

Floral Card for Altenew Inspiration Challenge

Happy 2018! Today I have a card for Altenew's January 2018 Inspiration Challenge.


I love these colors - one of my fav combos - and used them to create a birthday card.



My card design was inspired by this card and this one. For the background, I lightly used a blending tool to apply the Nuvo mousse in a few spots to highlight the woodgrain texture.

Thanks for visiting!

Ingredients: Altenew Floral Fantasy; MFT Happy Birthday Die-namics; PTI Wet Paint; Ranger wood grain card stock

Tis the Season - Card #4

Here is my last card for Altenew's Card Class - Tis the Season. This card features die cut windows with some ink blending to bring the images to life!


Since I used Distress Oxide inks, I sprinkled some water over the images to bring out that oxide effect!

Thanks for visiting! I adore Altenew's classes and they have a last minute holiday card class coming up! 

Ingredients: Altenew Festive Silhouettes 

Tis the Season - Card #3

Welcome back for another card for Altenew's Card Class - Tis the Season. Today's card is about metallic elements on your card - the holidays are all about the sparkle and shine!


It is hard to see from the pic, but the tree is popped up on foam tape with a 2nd tree in gold behind it to create some hidden shine. The word "christmas" was watercolored with some watered down gold paint I had and finally some splatters of gold are the final touch.

Thanks for visiting!

Ingredients: Altenew Festive Silhouettes, Halftone Holidays 

Tis the Season - Card #2

Back with another card for Altenew's Card Class Tis the Season. This card uses (mostly) non-Christmas/holiday products to create a holiday card. I rarely do this but loved stretching my creativity!  Here's my card:


Love this graphic card! 

Thanks for visiting!

Ingredients: Altenew Halftone (stencil), Festive Silhouettes (die), Bold Alphabet (dies); PTI Peaceful Pinecones 

Tis the Season - Card #1

I've started my Christmas cards - YAY - thanks to Altenew's card class Tis the Season. My first card is my take on the Rustic Holiday style (one of my favs). 


I finally got my hands on some of that wood paper (Altenew sells it) and love it! I love deer images - they are perfect for cards for guys! The antlers of the deer are stamped on gold to add some holiday sparkle!

Thanks for visiting! More cards to come.
