PTI Create Along With Us: October 2018

10/17/18
For this month's Create Along With Us, I have selected a
holiday penguin card by Laurie Schmidlin. I love what she
did using tone on tone with the new snowflake frame die.
And then she used die-cut snowflakes in white as a back-
ground...so much texture. Laurie's embellishments with
the red JOY die-cut and those adorable penguins are the
perfect "frosting on the cake!"

There were so many products in this month's PTI release.
I wasn't able to order the snowflake frame die nor the cute
penguin set due to a certain budget. Alas, I used what I had
in my stash and came up with this:
 Supplies: PTI Snowfall Style/Winter Penguin/Mix & Mat: Snowflakes/Pierced Feature Frame Dies, MFT Die-namics Layered Snowflakes/Filled With Joy, PTI Dye Ink (New Leaf, Pure Poppy, Scarlet Jewel), Copic Sketch, Studio Katia Snow Crystals.

PTI MIM #339: Patterned Frames

10/10/18
Ashley has a simple challenge for us for MIM this week; she
uses patterned paper/cover-up stamps to embellish die-cut
frames. I only have one Cover Up background stamp in my
stash (Quatrefoil). I embossed it with white EP on watercolor
paper. Then used my Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolors
in the traditional greens/reds. I splattered some warm gold on
after. This does not show up in the photo but adds an elegance to the BG. I used an ornament from Brilliant Baubles as the focal point of my patterned frame.
 Supplies: PTI Brilliant Baubles/Cover Up: Quatrefoil/Say It Simply: You & Yours Die/Pierced Feature Rectangle Frame Die, PTI Dye Ink (Pale Peony, Berry Sorbet, Pure Poppy), silver/white EP, Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolors, gold foil CS.

PTI Transformation Tuesday #21

10/7/18
Lizzie heads up this weeks Transformation Tuesday at PTI.
Both of her cards are sweet holiday cards, but I have to admit
that I like her second one better. It is definitely easier to read
and I love the lighter colors plus the glittery bling of the words.

For my transformation this week, I pulled a card from May 2018.
I am very partial to using cool colors in most creations. I decided
it was time to get out of my comfort zone and use the warm colors.
I've used most of the same elements, but changed up my colors
and switched the orientation. I am happy with the way both cards
came out. :)
