Even though I buy up all the stamps, faithfully, every 15th of the month, I don't pull my PTI stamps out often enough! Well, my dear sweet husband left this morning for a 2 month deployment to the Phillipines, so I had to console myself with some stamping therapy:) PTI is having an AWESOME countdown for their 3rd anniversary release and there have been challenges every day! So I got a couple of those done, plus the new CPS sketch that PTI is sponsoring!
This first card fits PTI's CPS challenge, and also fits in with our Monday challenge, to create Valentine's Day cards! I'm really on a Vday kick so it was really no problem for me;) This card is my entry for this weeks CPS sketch too...
I'm so excited about the new 100% felt that PTI will be carrying, so I broke out some felt from my own stash:) I cut it twice with my scalloped heart nesties and then nested a Rustic White heart inside, with a sentiment from Say it with Style. The background is stamped with the text background from Background Basics: Hearts! Fun right? See what the other Monday chicks came up with for this month of love!
AJ, Brooke, Jimmi, Maren, and Jeanne!
My next card is for the emboss resist challenge that Nichole issued a few days ago! I used the new Through the Trees set for this card, along with some Melissa Frances papers. I embossed the leaves with clear ep and then sponged some pink and ocean ink (Versamagic) chalk in on top and wiped away the excess, I love the effect it has!
The sentiment is from Lisa Johnson's new set, Daily Designs Additions.
Last card for today is for TODAY's PTI challenge, Paint by numbers! How fun is that! I actually had a hard time with this color combo, 5 colors is a lot to cram onto a card, lol! But I managed, and I'm happy with what I came up with!
My username on PTI is......go ahead and guess....... AMBER! I know, I'm way creative, and so proud:) Ha!
So based on my username, the colors I had to work with are Ocean Tides, Spring Moss, Lemon Tart, Vintage Cream, and Kraft! Love these colors, but like I said, it was a challenge getting them all on! So if it looks like a couple of the colors were after-thoughts, they sorta were, lol!
I embossed the vintage cream piece with my cuttlebug ( I forgot the name of this folder). I think it gives it a more "natural" feel:) I also used some of the new Pretty Pastels dsp (the spring moss piece). The stamps used are Turning a New Leaf and Say it with Style!
Well there it is! I'm turning in for the night, Christy's two labs plus my two labs are wearing me down, lol! They're a fun bunch, but holy crap they're little bundles of energy! See ya tomorrow with...I don't know...something, probably some yummy VERVE!
