PTI Make-It-Monday #202: Anchoring with Border and Banner Dies

This week's Make-It-Monday challenge is hosted by the lovely and ever so talented, Melissa Phillips.  She is the master of layering and has shown us some of her tricks and techniques.  If you would like to check the challenge out for yourself, you can find all the information here.

For my card, I chose to use a pattern paper background, with a Linen Vellum tag, topped with a skyscape die, die cut stars, star garland, and a cutie patootie cupcake.  I even managed to stamp a matching envelope.  Yea, me!  lol!

Thanks ever so much for stopping by!

PTI February Blog Hop Challenge

This month's PTI Blog Hop is an inspiration photo challenge.  Check out this sweet little number that Nichole Heady has found to inspire us to get crafty:

So what do you think about that photo!  Isn't it just lovely?  I love the watercolor look and the gorgeous colors!  Those are the two things that inspired my project today.

I used the Year of Flowers: Violets stamp set heat embossed in clear, and watercolored using Tim Holtz Distress Inks as my medium.  I typically make cards for my projects, but decided to keep this beauty for framing.  Thanks for the inspiration, PTI!

Thank you ever so much for stopping by!
