PTI Create Along With Us: August 2018


So much inspiration this August release from the DT! It was hard to select one for a CAS, but I chose a card created by Dawn. Her whimsical Halloween monsters caught my eye as she designed a cute window card and tags...just what I need for my Halloween goodies. I don't have the new PTI monsters set just yet, but I do have a couple of sets from MFT. Here's my take on Dawn's card:

 Supplies: PTI Pierced Feature Frame Dies, Tag Sale Quilt Die, Bitty Big Orange Zest PP,
MFT More Monsters/Frightfully Sweet (sentiment), Die-namics Stitched Rectangle STAX 2,
Lawn Fawn Happy, Happy, Happy (sentiment), PTI Dye Ink (Green Parakeet, New Leaf,
Spring Rain, Lilac Grace, Amethyst Allure, Harvest Gold, Summer Sunrise, Orange Zest),
Nuvo Crystal Drops (Dandelion Yellow).

PTI MIM #332: Petite Pattern Play

8/7/18 * Host: Michelle Leone

Making use of the smaller images in the large stamp sets to
create backgrounds is our challenge this week for MIM. This
is an easy method for BGs but I found it a bit of a challenge to space the images evenly. Part of my problem was that I chose an ornament shape to act as a mask...instead of a circle or square with an easier symmetry. I love the way
Michelle's baby cards came out and they would make a 
perfect gift with the foursome she created.

I am in Christmas mode this week...having fun playing with
Lizzie's newest Heirloom Ornament 1 stitching dies. This kind of transferred over to my card. I dusted off a couple of my old Christmas stamp sets and came up with this:

 Supplies: PTI Quilted Winter/Christmas Critters/Brilliant Baubles/ways to say 
merry Christmas, PTI Dye Ink (Spring Rain, Pure Poppy, Stormy Sea, Green 
Parakeet), Spellbinders 2011 Heirloom Ornaments, Stampin' Up Jewels Basic 
Pearls, WOW glitter shapes.

PTI Transformation Tuesday #15

Laurie is host for this weeks Transformation Tuesday as she
transforms her wintery card into a summery one. Both are just
wonderful tho I like how Laurie really spruced up her summer
I am like Laurie in my selection for my redo. I like my old card
but wanted to add a bit more color and also wanted to try a
different background. My second card uses smooshed Distress
Oxide Inks onto a craft mat which I applied with a water brush
onto watercolor paper. I added a different flower from the same
Stemmed Statements set and finished off with the Corner 
Adorner: July. I really like the lacey-look of the newest Corner


 Supplies: PTI Stemmed Statements, Corner Adorner: July, Bitty
Big: Raspberry Fizz, Distress Oxide Ink (picked raspberry, spiced
marmalade, squeezed lemonade, twisted citron, salty ocean,
wilted violet), Zig Clean Color, white/silver EP, embroidery floss.
