PTI MIM: Pattern Play With Die Cut Silhouettes

1/31/17 * Lexi shows us how to use pattern paper and die
cuts as silhouettes to make a simple but bold card for this
weeks MIM.

I selected PTI Bunny Basket to create a spring themed card.
I started with a Zig Clean Color marker to create the sky and
then layered green PP for the hillside and punched a grass
border to ground my bunnies. Decided to pull out my Sparkly
Fluff to add fuzzy tails to the bunnies. The little cluster of blue
flowers were die cut from Color Pop Florals. TFL & thanks for
your comments (I appreciate them). :)
DETAILS: PTI * Bunny Basket, Color Pop 
Florals, Vertical A2 Scallop die.
Dye inks: Lovely Lady, Raspberry Fizz, 
Hawaiian Shores, Blueberry Sky.
PTI Bitty Dot Basics paper pad.

Misc: Lawn Fawn Stitched Hillsides, Fiskars
grass border punch, Zig Clean Color markers, Sparkly Fluff (Sugar), MFT Water
color Wash paper pack.

PTI MIM: Spinner Cards

1/23/17 * An interactive card is the subject for this
weeks MIM with Lizzie! Such a clever idea...this one
is a "keeper" in my ever growing collection of PTI ideas.

I've been enjoying Nicole's Jumping for Joy set making
some Valentines and decided it would be perfect as a
spinner card too. Our granddaughter's 1st birthday is
coming up soon in February...so I have the perfect 
occasion. I'll have to tell her mommy to save the card
so she can play with it later when she is a bit older.

DETAILS:  PTI Jumping for Joy, Scene It: Celebration.
Dye inks: Hibiscus Burst, Green Parakeet, Amethyst 
Allure, Summer Sunrise, Classic Kraft.
Misc: Spellbinders nesting circles/ovals, Stickles Crystal.

PTI January 2017 Blog Hop

Just love this photo Nicole has selected for us as inspiration for the PTI January Blog Hop! These hand-decorated cookies are too pretty to eat.

There is nothing quite like a black background to make things really "pop." I used Color Pop Florals mini kit and watercolor paper/PTI dye inks/Zig Clean Color markers to create my flowers. TFL!

PTI Color Pop Florals mini kit, Tag Sale Quilt die.  PTI dye inks: Lovely Lady, Hibiscus Burst, Raspberry Fizz, Ripe Avocado.
Misc: Sizzix embossing folder, Silhouette, Zig Clean Color markers, Viva Decor Pearl pen.

PTI MIM: Masked Heart Wreaths

1/16/17*Melissa heads up this weeks MIM with a
fun technique using a heart as a mask to form a
wreath! Using 4 PTI stamps sets/15 dye ink colors
to draw my flowers from was quite tedious but the 
result was well worth the trouble. And yes, I am
finally happy with my wedding card that I will be
giving to our nephew and his fiancĂ© this weekend
at their wedding.

I would like to give credit to Nancy Penir whose
swan cards I drew inspiration and tried her idea
of sponge stamping on the swan stamps. It worked
great...so pretty. Thank you, Nancy!

DETAILS: Petite Pots, Forget-me-Not, Christmas
Faith, Swan'sational     
Vertical A2 Scalloped die
PTI Dye Inks: too many to list
PTI Amethyst Allure cardstock

 I like the other half of the masked heart (no longer a wreath)
and will keep it in my stash for future use. :)
