Make It Monday # Pattern Frames

         Just a quick post for PTI's Make It Monday  Ashley suggested that one make a frame using pattern paper. Glad I decided to join in because I think this suggestion really added to my card.
(sorry for the blurry photo)


     I used the Bold Border Foliage Die to create my frame in Orange Zest Damask Design pattern Paper. The pumpkin & sentiment is from Autumn Pumpkins.

PTI Blog Hop: September 2018


   It's been about 6 months since I participated in PTI's Blog Hop.  I just happened to have time to make a Thanksgiving card even though I am in the midst of Halloween craft making and birthday cards too.  (always birthday cards!)
   I loved the inspiration photo (as always) and focused on the pumpkins and canyon clay color.



Of course, I had to use my new Many Blessings die. My card,

MAKE IT MONDAY # 336 Faux Gilded Leaves

The Make it Monday challenge at PTI this week is to create faux gilded leaves. You can learn more about it Here.  I used gold, bronze and claret embossing powders. I think my claret was a little too old and didn't emboss as well as I would have liked.I stuck with the Kraft paper the way Laurie used it in her sample.Over all it turned out pretty nice.

Make It Monday #335 : Pop Up Slider Cards

     This week the PTI Make it Monday is all about a pop up slider card. Betsy Veldman has asked people on the PTI forum what they would like to see. A couple responses were pop up cards. Since I was one who also requested this I thought I should play along. You can view Betsy's tutorial here.
     So when I started to create my card using a version of Laurie Schmidlin's card, I forgot that Betsy suggested it be a one layer card.  Here's my card.



     Despite being a layered card, the slider still works. I just taped the corners. I also used 4 layers for the balloon's string to make it sturdier.

Stamp-a-Faire 2018 Water Your Flowers

I'm not into water colors.However, after attending Betsy"s session Water Your Flowers at PTI's 2018 Stamp-a-Faire, I think I will dabble in this some more. In fact I even ordered the water color paper Betsy recommended (Bee at Amazon)
Despite being my first time, I am happy with my creation.

Stamp-A-Faire 2018 Crafting a Felt Flower Wreath

Well, It took me several days after PTI's Stamp-a-Faire to finish my wreath. I just loved this. Making the flowers was so much fun. They do look beautiful.


 I bought the flower dies and can't wait to make more.
