PTI Make It Monday #57: Colored Kissing - Take 3

This week Papertrey Ink has a tutorial and challenge hosted by Heather. She has shown us how to "kiss with color" on our projects. If you would like to check it out for yourself, you can find all the info here.

I was totally inspired by this card made by Danielle Flanders:

I knew the minute I saw it that I wanted to make some paper just like it for this week's challenge! I made one card in a black print on vintage cream card stock using the Background Basics Newsprint stamp set. I was so very inspired that I wanted to create a second card! This card uses dark chocolate print on vintage cream card stock using the Background Basics Text Style stamp set. For this card, I stamped the largest of the Polka Dot Basics dots in Fine Linen ink and then "Kissed" the polka dot stamp using the script text style stamp. I trimmed a little bit off of my Doily Details die cut this time around as well.

I made the rolled flowers using a Die-Namics die. For the smaller sized flowers, I found I could simply paper punch a smaller sized circle and place that on top of my die, resulting in a smaller, but still very rollable spiral.

I thought about cutting some smaller spirals out by hand, but history proves I don't do so well with that, so I was very pleased to find I could just use the same die for all my flowers.

I placed a circle of scrap fabric on top of the Doily. I made my own stick pin by gluing a couple of pearls onto a ball pin that I had in my sewing supplies. I love the look of stick pins, but can't seem to bring myself to pay the premium for the good ones. :)

Supplies (all PTI unless noted):
Stamps: Background Basics Text Style, Polka Dot Basics, Polka Dot Basics II, Tea for Two Additions
Ink: Fine Linen, Classic Kraft, Dark Chocolate, Vintage Touch Duo
Card Stock: Rustic Cream, Kraft, Dark Chocolate
Dies: Limitless Layers 1 3/4", Doily Details, Rolled Flower (Die-Namics)
Other: Fabric (Hobby Lobby), pearls & stick pin (from eons ago)

Thank you ever so much for stopping by today!


  1. A really lovely card and great use of the "kissing" technique. Now I know how to get the look of a Hero Arts background that I've long admired using my PTI stamps!

  2. So gorgeous! What a lovely patterned paper you made using this weeks challenge! I love the the colors and the rolled flowers you made! That stick pin you made is so sweet, too!
