Life Happens ~ The Card Concept


Hello everyone!  Today starts a new challenge over at The Card Concept challenge blog based on the picture below...



I'm calling my style today "clean and layered with a shabby hint of chic!"  LOL  I've never been good at defining my style.  I love them all!  I was inspired by the flowers, the wood table, and of course, that yummy latte with hearts.  What a work of "heart."   Here's one more take on the challenge...

 
I hope you'll head over to The Card Concept blog to see all the different interpretations from the Design Team then join in the fun!  Have a great day!

Papertrey Ink Anniversary Challenges ~ Colour Recipe & Dies Only


 Happy Monday, everyone!  It's our Family Day long weekend here in BC and SUPER cold out so I've spent most of the morning in the studio creating and watching Team Canada at the Olympics.  I haven't done a colour challenge in eons so it was fun to join in this Colour Recipe challenge.

 

I chose Melissa's colour recipe and dug out Tulip Time!  Yes, it's time for tulips and spring, am I right?!!  Next up is my card for the Dies Only challenge.  I had some help with colours and design again from this card by Laurie Schmidlin


Thanks for visiting!  We are getting closer to release day!  Have a great week :)

Papertrey Ink Anniversary Challenges - Floral & Retired List


 Hi everyone!  I'm getting some good inky time in the studio this week in between Olympic viewing and family dinners :)  I've got two cards for the PTI Anniversary Challenges.  First up is the Floral Challenge.  I'm using the 2016 anniversary set Painted Petals, the matching dies, and a sentiment from Pen & Ink.

 Next up is a CASE of Laurie Schmidlin's card I saw on her blog.  I have the same arrow die cut and never know how to use it so I was thrilled to see it on Laurie's card HERE.  PTI has a new retired list and I CAN'T BELIEVE "HEART PRINTS" IS ON IT!  Seriously, I have had this set forever!  It's very brown and in a CD case! LOL  These stamps have been so well loved by me that I had to give all of them a warm soapy bath before making this card...they wouldn't stick to my acrylic block! LOL  If I were you, I'd grab this set before they run out.  It's a classic. I use my EK medium heart punch with the images. They are a perfect fit.  Here's my card for the Retired List challenge (thanks again to Laurie for a great design!).

Happy Valentine's Day ~ PTI Day 3 Anniversary Challenge


Hello!  This next PTI Anniversary Challenge (Transform a card into something new) was perfect timing!  I had made this pink Valentine's card a week ago and taken it into work with my stash to sell.  One colleague loved it, but wanted it for her son.  I told her I could make it with more masculine colours, no problem!  Here it is in red and black and white!  If the design is simple enough, it's easy peasy!
