PTI SAF 2015: Bridal Challenge

Saturday, August 29, 2015

Hi there! This is my first year participating in Papertrey Ink's Stamp-a-faire and I am really enjoying it! The first challenge is the Bridal Challenge in which we were to only use white except for a neutral color for the sentiment.

I began by die cutting all the pieces and adhering the background layers together. You can't tell it in the picture but the vellum behind the cover plate die has little polka dots on it. I stamped the sentiment in Versamark and heat embossed it in silver. I used the Keep It Simple die cut to adhere the vellum leaves and I also tucked a couple of the leaves under the cover plate die to keep it from bending. 

My Supplies:
Stamps: PTI Sentiment Splits
Dies: PTI Cover Plate: Stripes Diagonal, PTI Branching Out, PTI Keep It Simple
Ink: Versamark 
Paper: PTI Stamper's Select White, PTI Sheer Basics Vellum, Avery Vellum

Thank you for coming by! I hope you're having an awesome weekend!

Dragonfly Birthday

Saturday, August 1, 2015

Hi there! Today I am participating in this week's CASology challenge.

With the cue word being "wings" usually I would have chosen butterflies and that is the first thing that came to mind. Instead of just going ahead with butterflies I decided to look through my stamps. I found a dragonfly stamp I hadn't used yet and thought it would be perfect for this challenge.

I die cut the stitched frame and did my stamping on the inlaid rectangle. Then I adhered both pieces to the center of my card front. It was super simple and I love how it turned out!

My Supplies:
Stamps: PTI Masculine Motifs
Dies: MFT Die-namics Stitched Rectangle Frames
Ink: PTI True Black, PTI Tropical Teal, PTI Simply Chartreuse, PTI Ripe Avocado
Paper: PTI Stamper's Select White
