Make It Monday #14: Selective Inking

I needed to make up a birthday gift for my friend Kriss (I asked her not to look at my blog this week ;-). So, I used the challenge on the tag.

Have you ever seen these pull up treats before? This is the link

But, I changed it up a little and put Papertrey Stamp sets and a die in them. I am in love with these little set and I know my friend will too. (The die I just adhered to cardstock and slid it in.)

I used the selective inking technique on the sayings. The "Celebrate Big " is from Birthday Bash and Mega Mixed Messages. The "Fabulous Friend" is from two different sayings in Mega Mixed Messages. And finally, the "Eat Cake" from the PTI cupcake set, I just put the words on top of each other.

And this is my go to tool right now. I love that I can used that sticky side of the Quick Stik to my die cuts out of my dies. Love it! And the other pointy end I use to place my rhinestone in just the right spot. I use this tool all the time and it is always out on my desk. Gotta get one if you don't have one.

Supplies: Dies- Beautiful Blooms II#3, Mat Stack #1 & #2. PTI stamp sets- Mega Mixed Messages, Cupcake Collection, Birthday Bash, Tag It #1, #2, #3. Beautiful Blooms PP. Rhinestones.
