Papertrey Customer Favorite

PTI is celebrating their 4th year anniversary. They have an amazing prize up for grabs for just sharing your favorite PTI project. Because of Canadian shipping costs I've only placed one order with PTI. I knew I would love the cardstock and I have. I tried the sampler to see what colors I would like and a few months ago I took my remaining pieces and made 10 cards with this one style but unfortunately I didn't take a picture. This is the only one I have left that I haven't sent out. So I guess this isn't my favorite color combo but I do love the card. I also love the stamp sets "Turning a New Leaf" and "Polka Dots". I use them one or both on so many layouts and cards. So now I have to figure out how to get more Kraft and Rustic Cream CS without breaking the bank on shipping.
Stamps: PTI; Turning a New Leaf, Remember CTMH;Say It In Style

CPS 180

I used the colors from the current Embellish Magazine Blog Challenge but then decided this wasn't really cutesty or quirky. But I just love the color combo. An easy sketch by CPS but I'm stuck on putting images on the left and not the right. I carried the lines all across the card because my image is larger than the sketch.

Party Animal

I absolutely love the colors in the Embellish Magazine Challenge and so decided to try a quirky and clean card. I also used the sketch from Card Patterns this week. It was an easy sketch but I didn't like the 3 flowers and so cut it down to 2. I paper pierced the cute little chick and again, I just love the color combo.

Card Patterns 72

I've created for a couple of the sketch challenges lately and just haven't gotten the cards posted in time... or sent the cards out without taking a photo. So success this week with Card Patterns Sketch 72. I didn't keep the square shape but just used a standard sized card. All pretty self explanatory.

Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge 1

With a limited crafting budget, my stamp purchases are few and far between, but I have been coveting many of the Waltzingmouse stamp sets. With a new sketch challenge, maybe I'll get lucky and win one.

Waltzingmouse stamps is also sponsoring the Embellish Magazine Challenge this week. So I used their colors to have yet another chance to win some goodies from Waltzingmouse Stamps. I was supposed to use a label along with the colors, so I'm using my Martha Stewart Tag Punch as my label.

CS: PTI; Kraft, Rustic White, Dark Chocolate, Melon Berry, Lemon Tart Stamps: PTI; Polka Dot Basics, Turning a New Leaf, CTMH; Say It In Style Ink: PTI; Melon Berry, CTMH; Chocolate Other: MS Punch, EK Success Corner Rounder Punch, Nestabilities, PTI Ribbon, twine

Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger

I absolutely love red and white together.  When I saw this week's Tuesday Trigger  from Moxie Fab World I decided to play along.  I used PTI Rustic Cream CS and stamped different images to create a slightly worn look.  I really wanted to sew the different shapes together with decorative stitching like a crazy quilt, but I guess I wimped out.  It's a basic card, but I need a few Thank You cards that are easy to mail, so this is one down.

Stamps: PTI; Polka Dot Basics, Turning a New Leaf, Remember   CTMH; Playful Petals   Ink: CTMH; Cranberry, Black   CS: PTI; Kraft, Rustic Cream  CTMH; Cranberry   Ribbon: CTMH; Cranberry   Punch: SU; Scallop  Marvy; Circle  MS; Scallop Dot Edge
