The challenge today for PTI's 10th Anniversary celebration is to create a card using your favorite floral. I love so many of PTI's floral stamp sets. My new Favorite is Floral Sketches. I made a gift card set for my granddaughter's teacher. These layouts are all replicas of layout I googled.
My brother-in-law is a HUGE Yankee fan. Every year I make him a special birthday card using a Yankee theme. This year I did something special and made a coordinating envelope because in celebration of PTI's 10th anniversary, one of the challenges is to create a card with an altered envelope.
I created the background paper with my computer and the Yankee logo I downloaded and fussy cut.
Previous birthday cards can be viewed here:2012, 2013, 2014. I never did post the card I made for the past two years.
There are a ot of changes happening with Papertrey Ink. One new thing is a guest blogger the 6th of every month. Today's Guest Blogger: Rebecca Luminarias. She is toting herself as PTI's Packaging Ambassador. In honor of PTI's 10th anniversary, the challenge today is to create a tag or some type of packaging. I decided to make a tag for a baby gift for my niece's newly adopted baby.
It's been awhile since I participated in a challenge. When I saw the beautiful card created by Melissa Phillips for this weeks Make-it-Monday challenge I knew I had to participate. Besides, I need 2 more Valentine cards.
Most of my images came from Garden Gild with some leaf images from Garden Grace. Since I never bought the dies for Big Hugs, I had to settle for stamping the sentiment.
I am soooo far behind on my Christmas cards. I usually send out around 60-64 cards and make each card different. I don't think that will be the case this year since I currently have only 25 made. So when I saw the Make It Monday # 267 challenge this week, I thought it would get me off to a good start. So I perused my new stamps and came up with this design.
I began with all my die cuts; then did the stamping. Assembly was a breeze. Because I have such a short attention span (lol), and don't care much for making multiples (except when I'm in a crunch) I only made 4 altogether.
There are a couple of adults in my daily life that I like to give a little treat to during the holidays. Last year, I remember someone used pencils, washi tape, the Holiday Pin Up: Halloween kit and the Write Stuff Holder die to create witches' legs. I attached it to a bag of chips instead of candy.
