Merry Monday # White on White

 Soon we will be celebrating the 4th of July, but here I am making Christmas cards in the heat of the summer.
This week the challenge at Merry Monday is to create a card that is white on white.

  I made a quick little card using one of my favorite sets: Polka Dot Parade. The sentiment is embossed in Judikins Agean silver to give it a little sparkle.

The tree was embossed with the PTI Herringbone IP to add some texture.

Christmas Vellum Overlay

 I have another card for this week's MIM: Vellum Overlays hosted by PTI. The theme of my card is Christmas. It's been forever since I participated in a Christmas Challenge hosted by Festive Friday.
The challenge is based upon this photo.

I focused on the tree with the presents;

 I decided to add rhinestones colored with my Copic marker after I finished the card. Since the challenge at Merry Monday is to create a project with sparkle, shimmer and shine, I'll submit this card there too!

MIM: Vellum Overlays

I love PTI's Make It Mondays; however, I don't always have the time to play along. After being away for close to 5 weeks, things are settling down.  This week's MIM is to create a project using a vellum overlay.
The vellum I used has polka dots on it; however they don't show up in the photo.

I embossed the balloons with Judi-kins Iridescent Sparkle to give the balloons a little shimmer.

Thanks for stopping by to take a peek. Have a great day!

PTI June Blog Hop: A CAS Version

  I have another card for PTI's  June Blog Hop. It is based on the other color combination using the same sketch as my first card. Only this time it is CAS.

I need to stamp off first whenever I use the Berry Sorbet ink; thus the partial imprint. This is a great color combination. Love those Bitty button dies; they make such cute flowers.

PTI June Blog Hop: Inspiration Galore

           Do you know Christmas is only 6 months from today? It is also PTI's June Blog Hop. The challenge this month is based upon an inspiration photo, color combinations as well as some sketches.

This is the color combination & sketch I chose for my card.

My version.
I must confess lining up the triangles and die cut was no easy matter. If you look closely, you'll see the rest of the sentiment stamped under the embedded die cut.

Here's a close up of the triangles that were stamped in Versamark with the dots from Banner Builder. I think it made the cardstock a tad darker.

Happy Father's Day to my DH

Our family just returned from our first Family Vacation since FOREVER! We celebrated Father's Day a bit early (on Friday). I had to make sure I had my shopping done as well as my cards.

Here's a close up shot of the leaves & sentiment which I generated using my computer.

My husband wanted some new ear buds for when he works out. I also added a word search book for him.
 Here's a better shot of the tag.

My granddaughters have never been to the beach. They had no idea what it was. I wanted to capture their expressions when they saw the beach for the first time.


This was the view from the deck.

Tomorrow I'll post the Father's Day card I made for my son-in-law.  Thanks for stopping by to take a peek.
