Make It Monday #54: Glitter Buttons

The Papertrey challenge this week was to make your own glitter buttons. I cut the clouds out of white CS and then put some bitty dots PP behind it for some dimension (oh and some pop dots too). My card was inspired by Debby (thank you!)

February 2012 Blog Hop

My niece's High school Basketball team made it to the State playoffs. I thought an interactive card would be perfect for her!

The challenge was to make an interactive card. A card for a teenager......a little bit of it's own challenge for me. I just kept it simple and used some bright colors. I can't wait to watch her play on Tuesday. GO SARAH!


I hope you have fun with the challenge too.



Supplies: Everyday Classics PTI, Congrats All Ways set PIT, Banner die, Christmas Label Die,

Papertrey Inc Make It Monday #53

This make it Monday really taught me a lot this week. And I jumped right over to ebay and bought that slot punch from Making Memories. I had never seen that- What a cool tool!

I needed a wedding card for a lady at my church. I hope she likes it! I used the PTI coasters, Baja Breeze reinker from Stampin Up! and perfect pearls spritzer. Oh, the one thing I learned that wasn't on the video, is that if the color looks splotchy or uneven on the coaster, it will even out as it dries. I panicked for a minute.....



Supplies: PTI dies-banner, limitless layer circles and Mat stack 3, PTI stamps-Happy Trails and Celebrations, Polka Dot Basics Impression Plate.

Papertrey Anniversary Day 7

Today the challenge from PTI is to make a card with hearts. I know it is a simple card but I did that because the red paper is actually sparkly in person- it kind of steals the show. The sparkly red paper is actually on the inside edge of the card. I hope you have a happy Valentine's Day!

Supplies: Memory Box heart die, Happy Day stamp set (which my mom gave me for Christmas, Thanks Mom!), Glitter paper SU.

Papertrey Anniversary Day 5

Okay, where to start today- I LOVE PINTEREST! Papertrey announced today that they would be posting boards on pinterest. So, I have an account but have not taken the plunge because well........I just don't have the time. And from what I have heard you can spend soooo much time on pinterest. One person said "its fantasy football for girls," oh are they right but, I am a fantasy football girl too, man am I in trouble (my household that is)! So, I spent 3 hrs on pinterest today checking it all out and setting things up and I am HOOKED! Thanks, I think??!!
Anyhoo, back to PTI's anniversary, today's challenge was to take a pinned idea from one of the designers boards and create a card. I picked Lisa Johnson
http://www.poppypaperie.typepad.com/
and this is the card I came up with. I embossed the flowers (& sentiment) with black EP and then cut them out with the matching dies (backwards I know but it works best for me). The middle flower is popped up a little. Have a great night!

Supplies: Dots and Striped PP Echo Park, Delightful Dahlia and matching die PTI, Script Sentiments PTI, rhinestones PTI.
