Make It Monday #38: Brayer and Impression Plate Techniques

As soon as I watched the Make It Monday Video, I knew I had to use my Mehndi Medallion Impression Plate. I LOVE the Mehndi Medallion stamp but it can be a little small for some projects but with this technique and the impression plate I now have a large Mehndi Medallion. YA! I love how this turned out and plan to make a note card set to match! I just had to keep the card simple because I didn't want to cover up the medallion.

Supplies all PTI unless noted: Mehndi Medallion Plate, Label Basic Dies, Ribbon from SU, Birthday Basics, Adhesive pearls.

October 2011 Blog Hop

This is the photo of Papertrey Ink's blog hop challenge. What perfect inspiration! Doesn't it just make you want to run out and buy some fabric and then run home and make a pumpkin pie? I love pumpkin pie!

I just fell in love with all the patch work fabric so I went back to my old stand by of pattern paper strips. I hope you like it! I am off to post my Make it Monday card and then make a pumpkin pie ;-)

Supplies all PTI unless noted: Tag It #7, PP-In Bloom, Bitty Box Basics, Distressed Dots, Chocolate Baker's Twine, Doily Dies.

Make It Monday #37: Layered Mats and Frames



Dawn's video this week is one of my favorite techniques. Here is the link to PTI: http://nicholeheady.typepad.com/capture_the_moment/2011/10/make-it-monday-37-layered-mats-and-frames.html

It is just such a cool look- frames from dies. Okay so if you follow my blog, you know I love simple and elegant. This card is definitely simple but I wanted the frame and the clear embossing in the background to be the main focus. In the background I used Harvest Berries & Versa Mark on Enchanted Evening (my favorite PTI color), then embossed with clear EP (also one of my favorite techniques). I used Mat Stack 4 and the inside is fillable frame 10, the two just go perfectly together. Lemon Tart ribbon and CS, both from PTI.

Make It Monday #35: Custom Stamped Washi Tape

I did it! Just in the nick of time. I love gingham so I grabbed my score tape and my tissue paper from my recent PTI order (see my Christmas Labels stamp set and die :-)))))) Love this new die and stamp set, new favorite!
