This has to be the quickest card I've ever made, but I have a feeling I could be making more, especially at Christmas!  I love the look of these pocket cards, great for presenting a gift card.  You can find this challenge at Papertrey Ink.  Hope you enjoy your day, I am off to plant some vegetables.

Penny Black Majestic

I know it is a little early to be posting Christmas cards, but a friend and I are applying in August to enter a local craft fair and we need a few samples to be juried.  My goal is to create 3 cards very different from each other.
Here is the first one, hope you like it!
Have a grand day,

Make It Monday # 65

Had a chance to take in the MIM video at Papertrey Ink and whipped up a little something. I very rarely buy patterned paper any more as I found that buying it was my only involvement with it as I rarely use it, so I thought I'd make my own background papers.  Although I love background stamps, I am discovering that other stamps are also useful for backgrounds. Enjoy your weekend,

Paper:  C/S PTI White, Raspberry Fizz, Chartreuse, Spring Moss
Stamps:  PTI Daydreamer, Mat Stack 1, Polka Dots 2, Think Big Favorites #5, Hero Arts Grid Pattern
Ink: Color Box Frost White, SU Old Olive, PTI Raspberry Fizz, Versa Mark, Memento Tuxedo Black

MIM # 64 Color Inspiration


Thought I'd share a card with the above color scheme from this week's Papertrey Ink challenge.  This proved to be a good exercise, as I don't think I would have chosen these colors on my own. I am really liking the Lovely Leaves stamp set;  I like that I can stamp the outline of the leaves in one color, and fill them in with another.  Enjoy your day,
Paper: C/S: PTI Fine Linen 
Stamps: PTI Lovely Leaves, SU Sincere Salutations
Ink:  Delta Turquoise, Versa Magic Aquatic Splash, Memento Brown, Copics
