Papertrey April Blog Hop Challenge

I loved the color combination in this month's blog hop challenge.  Dark blue, pinks and white with touches of green and yellow are so beautiful together.

I had to put a bunch of flowers on my card with this lovely color combination.

Products used:
Papertrey Ink:  Big Hugs Die and Stamp set
Papertrey Ink: Bitty Bouquets Stamp step
Papertrey Ink: Rasberry Fiz stamp pad
Stampabilities: Lime Green stamp pad


White on White with a Pop of Color

This week's Make-it-Monday had me experimenting with various die cuts.  My final choice for this White on White with a Pop of Color challenge was one of my newest dies.  I used my bitty bouquets die and stamps.  Here is my project.

Ombre Stamping

The Papertrey Ink Ombre Stamping challenge for this week's Make-It-Monday gave me a change to mix some pretty purples together for a Thank you card.  I used a sponge dauber to apply my inks to the small Life is Beautiful butterfly stamp.  I then die cut the butterflies and then added a simple background.  A few rhinestone sparkles finished my card.

Products Used:
Papertrey Ink Life is Beautiful Stamp Set and Dies
Papertrey Ink Swoosh Stamp Set
Sampabilities Lavender Pigment Ink
ColorBox Boysenberry Pigment Ink
Stampin'Up Elegant Eggplant Dye Ink

Double Partial Die Cutting

This week's Papertrey Ink Make-it-Monday was something I had never tried.  I loved the idea, but found that my Big Shot doesn't really apply equal cutting pressure any more so I had to make multiple attempts to get the right result.  In the end I followed Laura's lovely example and had success.  You can catch the video here.

Watercolor Smooshing

This week I got to try another new technique that was shared in the Papertrey Ink Make-it-Monday challenge.  Just the sound of the title lets you know how fun this technique is going to be.  Here is a link if you would like to view the video, Watercolor Smooshing.  I tried this out using a few different colors but liked my PTI Raspberry Fizz and Stampin Up Elegant Eggplant combination the best.  I colored by picnic basket of flowers with Copic markers.

Doodling with Stamps

This week's Papertrey Ink Make-It-Monday took me really far out of my comfort zone but I still had to give it a try. For my card I used PTI Pretty Petals, PTI Happy Hearts and PTI Swoosh.  I used the hearts to create my flower petals and tried to keep my doodling as free as it is possible.  That was a stretch.
