Make It Monday #228: Pearlized Blending

Taking the Making it Monday challenge to task today...  Lizzie had great instructions, and putting this together was really fun!

I used a phrase from Scripted Sentiments, and the mask was made with one of the Keep it Simple Frames.  The Spray of Flowers is from Quilted Spring, and my colors are Winter Wisteria, Hawaiian Shores and Tropical Teal. Here's a close up of the shimmer...

Don't usually make cards with a lot of white space, but the shimmer from the Perfect Pearls was all it needed to "shine"! I finished it off with a tiny pearl in the center of the flower.

Thanks for stopping by!

PTI October 2015 Blog Hop

Awesome inspiration photo this month!  

I couldn't wait to try out my new PTI products. Defiantly a way to start off my Christmas card making! 

I've used Spruce and Sprigs for the background, the new Quilted Tag, and Deck the Halls. Love all these new things!!  A final touch was to add some shiny red berries, using Stickles. 

Now I'm ready to start the Christmas season!

Thanks for stopping by today.

Make It Monday #227: Focal Clusters

My focal cluster got a little bigger than I thought, but what a fun technique!  I used Latte Love for my images, and they are stamped with Black, Pure Poppy and Raspberry Fizz.  I used Copics to color parts of the cups, and added a few touches of a white gel pen.  Thanks for a great challenge Lexi!

PTI Create With Us - October

I was very inspired by this post from Melis...

I used the only Botanical Blocks I have, and ended up making two cards.

This first one is my favorite, but I haven't quite mastered the more washed look. But I like the finished card, and even added one of her "junk" bows!

I'd like to add some seed beads or brown glitter to the center of this next one.

The center is a little messy, and I think adding that touch might help.  But how gorgeous is Melissa's card?? So amazing to be able to see and give it a try!

Thanks for looking!

Getting Stripey for Make it Monday!

I put together a card for this week's Make it Monday, incorporating stripes on your card.  I used my Plaid Builder set to make stripes as a base for my coffee cup.

Placement of the stripes were easier with my new Misti.  I also used Tea for Two and Stamped and Stitched.  Great challenge!

Thanks for looking!
