PTI 10th Anniversary Challenge: Transformation – Golden Framed Dewy Periwinkle Photo

The final challenge of Papertrey Ink’s 10th Anniversary celebration was called Transformation. The challenge was to create a new project based on a card you were not happy with. That was easy… That white, pink and green frame I just did really didn’t turn out as great as I’d imagined it. I thought the colors would pull out the colors in the picture, but was highly disappointed.

So, I decided to re-try this time with a solid gold background…

Wow! NOW the picture POPS!! MUCH better, don’t you think?!!

I love making cards out of pictures I’ve taken… I need to do that more often! They make great ‘any occasion’ cards to have on hand!!

Supplies used:

  • Papertrey Ink Quatrefoil cover plate die
  • Colorbok Shiny Gold Metallic Paper
  • Sookwang 6″ Scor-tape adhesive (this also worked MUCH better for piecing in the pieces)
  • Core’dinations Parisian Nights A2 white card

I’m playing along with the following challenges… click on any one of them for more information on how you can join the fun… you’ll want to hurry and join this one if you can – you might win your PTI wishlist of up to $300! Wouldn’t that be fabulous?!

Thanks again for visiting… don’t forget to stop back by on Friday for a cool surprise!

PTI 10th Anniversary Challenge: Stitching – Little Lady’s Felt Tic-Tac-Toe aka Foxes & Dames

Hello and welcome back! I’m finally up to posting some of the projects I’ve done for Papertrey Ink’s 10th Anniversary Challenges, and just in the nick of time as they end tomorrow morning… so brace yourselves for a rash of posts. : )

 

The first Challenge this month was a Stitching Challenge. Lizzy Jones started off Papertrey Ink’s new stitching series with a cute little felt travel Tic-Tac-Toe set:

Not having Xs and Os, I took her color scheme and made a little girl’s game of ‘Foxes & Dames’:

It rolls up easily. Just tie a ribbon around it for a portable game.

Supplies used:

  • Papertrey Ink Love You To Pieces: Fox die
  • Papertrey Ink: Simply Jane die collection
  • Kunin Felt Eco-fi Classicfelt -Black, Red, White
    • Interesting fact: This felt is made with a polyester fiber made from recycled plastic bottles.
  • Prism Craft Thread – gray

I’m playing along with the following challenges… click on any one of them for more information on how you can join the fun:

I’ll be right back with a couple more projects.

Nail Polish Marbled Paper – Papertrey Ink Make-It-Monday #277

I’m back this evening with a really cool method of paper marbling… using NAIL POLISH! Yep, you read right… NAIL POLISH!

20170309_NailPolMarb

In Papertrey Ink’s Make-It-Monday #277, Lizzie does a fine job of showing you how to do it in the video HERE, so I won’t waste your time with more, except for these three tips:

  1. Make sure to use gloves and protect around your working area.
  2. I found it easier to drip from the bottle with the help of the applicator rather than from the applicator, which took too long.
  3. Make sure to have plenty of paper towels or a dedicated craft mat to lay your wet marbled paper on to dry.

What beautiful DIY backgrounds! They’re shiny and yet pliable, not hardened to the point of breaking.

Adding a polish with glitter tended to spread the colors away from the glitter, for a different look.

These would make great cards to give a special gal along with a manicure kit!

For the ones on black card bases, I went back to old corner punches to decorate the inside and make room for writing a message. Unfortunately, the embossing is so light, I couldn’t get it to show in a picture.

Supplies used:

  • Papertrey Ink – Wonderful Words: Love die
  • Fiskars Framed in Love Border Corner Punch
  • Core’dinations Parisian Nights A2 cards and white & black cardstock
  • Tombow mono adhesive runner
  • Aleene’s Clear Gel Tacky Glue
  • Sally Hansen Zesty Ginger Frost nail polish
  • Sinful Colors nail polish: Black on Black, Eva So Bright, Frenzy & Jade Kat

I’m playing along with the following challenges… click on any one of them for more information on how you can join the fun:

I hope to be back soon with a couple more cards. So check back, or subscribe so you won’t miss any, ok?! Thanks for stopping by today!

Papertrey Ink 10th Anniversary Celebrating… 2016 – Trellis Tulip Hello Card

Well, we’ve made it to the end of this series! Thanks for hanging in there with me! Today is Papertrey Ink’s final anniversary review… Celebrating the Past, Present and Future: 2016.

20170217_pti2016

It’s been a fun trip down memory lane with them. Can’t wait to see what’s in store for tomorrow!!

Well, they released Tulip Time in 2016, so I get to come up with my own card for a change. Hope you like it:

20170220_100910_wm

Ahhh…. you can just feel the warmth of spring! That trellis is made from the Quatrefoil die… if you cut it in half, you can then mix and match the pieces to form all kinds of nifty patterns.

20170220_100628_wm 20170220_100709_wm

20170220_100741_wm 20170220_100823_wm

I glue the edges together first, then snip off the ends and tuck them under the edge if needed. Again, I like using a flower shaping tool on these for dimension.

  • Papertrey Ink Tulip Time stamps and dies
  • Papertrey Ink Quatrefoil Cover Plate die
  • Papertrey Ink Swoosh dies

Papertrey Ink 10th Anniversary Celebrating… 2012 – Thinking of You Card

Here we go with another card for Papertrey Ink ‘s 10th anniversary – this time Celebrating the Past, Present and Future: 2012.

20170217_pti2012

Once again I didn’t have the featured sets, but I chose this card by Dawn McVey’s for inspiration:

20170219_pti2012

I pulled out my new DCWV Hello Darlin’ stack and found a couple that matched the raspberry fizz paper. cut my tags with my Fiskars paper trimmer and scissors. All you need is the corner of a square piece of paper to mark the triangle at the bottom.

20170219_144246_wm
