PTI blog hop

Today is PTI's blog hop and you can check it out over here blog hop.  The inspiration picture is a fun mix of colors and shapes.  After receiving my latest order, from PTI of course, I knew exactly what I wanted to do with this design.

Here is my interpretation

I love this color combination and really like this new stamp/die set.

PTI stamp/die - Outlined
Birthday stamps - PTI - Bountiful Banners, Delightful Dahlia and Boutique Borders Birthday
PTI ink - Tropical teal
PTI paper - Canyon Clay (pattern), Hawaiian Shore and Aqua Mist (cardstock)


Thank you for stopping by and I hope you play along!

Simon Says Monday challenge

Dinner is done and cleaned up.  Company has gone home so I thought while I was waiting for the dishwasher to finish I would make another card.  I have this really cute die from SSS that I have not tried yet so wanted to break that out with a stamp set from PTI.  I have to say I really love how this turned out even though it was a little more challenging with the masking that I decided to do with the little deer.
Here is my card

I used the stick it product behind the die but want to put a little multi medium matte behind a few places that I see not quite down the way I want.

Simon Says stamp die - Merry Christmas
Papertrey Ink - Tinsel & tags stamps, Winter woods paper and ink colors are fine linen, hawaiian shores and tropical teal

Thanks for stopping by!


Simon says Monday Challenge

It was so nice that this challenge ran for 2 weeks and as usual I waited until almost the last minute to create!  Here is a link to the challenge as there is still time to enter Simon says and enter you should.  The prize is a gift cert to Simon Says online store.  Ok who doesn't like shopping there lets be honest.

Without further ado here is my entry

I bought these moose stamps when they were released and this is the first time I have used them.  I learned a lesson however which is the PTI paper I used for the background doesn't like Copic markers very much.  There was quite a bit of bleeding but I thought it added to the charm.
