Color Pop Florals

I just couldn't wait to use my new stamp set called "Color Pop Florals".  It is a Make It Market Mini Kit released this month by Papertrey Ink.  It comes with stencils, dies and even papers that have the florals on it that you can color.  I chose to use copics and inks to color my patterned paper and I loved the end result.

Have a Happy Birthday PTI Challenge


The-challenge

We've put a little something fun together for you today in honor of the last day of our anniversary countdown!  We present the Paper Crafting Alphabet Challenge!  Use anywhere from the first three to ALL of the letters in your first or last name.  Write the letters in a single column on a piece of scratch paper and then use the chart below as a reference for each of those letters, making notes about what you need to incorporate into your project.  If you have a "double" letter, skip the duplicate letter and move onto the next letter in your name.  Use your first or last name, depending on which one has a more interesting array of letters.  If you want to keep things simple, just use the first three letters of your name, if you want something more complex and challenging use all of the letters in your name!  And most importantly, have fun!


The first 3 letters in my name are JOA and I pulled out a stamp set I have never inked.  In fact, when I purchased it, I asked myself why?  Because I am not a fan of southwest design.  However, this card came out good and I know just the friend who would like it.  I created ombre borders on the whole card base and put a rhinestone in the center of the focal point.

Papertrey 9th Anniversary 2016 - Challenge 5


The-challenge

In honor of our 9th Anniversary, you are challenged to cut nine 1-1/2” squares from white cardstock, then alter all nine of the squares using a variety of techniques, colors, stamps, etc. Be sure to do something different to each square!  Cut lots of extra squares so you can experiment and have fun!  If you are running short on ideas you can always go through the Make It Monday archives.  Once you have completed them, adhere the nine squares to a 5-1/2” x 5-1/2” square card front and share their masterpiece on our InLinkz list below!

My creation is below.  I used different color Gelatos to color the background of each square.  Some were sprayed with a tiny bit of water and blended in with a sponge and others were just the Gelatos with no water.

Papertrey 9th Anniversary - Challenge #3


The-challenge
 Since we introduced the return of the Grab Bag today, we thought it would be fun to do a "Grab & Craft" challenge!  So, set a timer for 5 minutes and *grab* supplies for your project. Don't think about it too much, just grab what inspires you!  But don't grab too much!  You need to utilize everything you grab to create a project!

 I would appreciate any recommendations for photographing your creations.  Mine are just so so and I need help.
