Perfect Petunias

Saturday, March 18, 2017

Hey guys! Happy weekend!  I have a card to share all made with leftover pieces on my craft desk.  
The main stamped panel was left over from this project.  While I had all the stamps, from Unconditionally, on the acrylic block I figured I might as well stamp several for later use! 
The flowers are from the new Modern Petunias set and I stamped and colored them while working on this project
The black panel is stamped with the new Big Top Background and embossed with clear embossing powder.  I created it while working on this project, but didn't end up using it.

Thanks so much for stopping by! 

I have a huge destash going on now.  So many Papertrey Ink stamp sets and dies for sale.  Check them out HERE!

WPlus9 Release Day

Sunday, March 5, 2017

Good Morning! Today is WPlus9 Release Day! So many great new stamp and die sets, including Modern Petunias.  I've used them today to create a quick gift tag.

I've also die cut the word 'Mom' from the Folk Art Alphabet Dies and colored them with three copics in an ombre' color scheme.  All the pieces are arranged on the Christmas Tag Die.  Inside this adorable window coffee bag is some homemade granola.  These bags are awesome.  I bought them from Papertrey Ink.

I love making my own granola.  It's cheaper and you can control all of the ingredients you put in it.  I follow this recipe from Niomi as a general guide, but add whatever I have on hand. 

Thanks for stopping by today.  Have fun checking out all the new WPlus9 products.  Those used above are linked below {affiliate links used}

A Friend Like You

Sunday, February 26, 2017

Hey Guys! I hope that wherever you are you are experiencing the same kind of beautiful weather we have been having here.  It's been a little taste of spring, and although it's not here to stay {yet} it is making me so happy!  Thanks for all of your well wishes; I am feeling much better!

Today's card design created a two for one!  I started by die cutting the Concord and 9th butterfly from masking paper.  I adhered the mask to the center of a piece of white cardstock.  I burnished it with a bone folder to ensure no ink would seep underneath the mask.  I then stamped squares in a 3x3 grid.  I used the solid square stamp from WP9 Greetings and Salutations. I decided to choose inks in a rainbow-like order.  I used mostly PTI ink colors: Pure Poppy, Summer Sunrise, Harvest Gold, New Leaf, Spring Rain, Enchanted Evening, Winter Wisteria, Scarlet Jewel, and Versafine Onyx. 

Once my grid was stamped I removed the mask and die cut the panel with the Concord and 9th Friend Like You die.  I made sure to hold onto all of those tiny letters.  I attached it to a black card base and popped up a black butterfly on the masked area. 
In order to place all of the letters in the right place on my second card I die cut another, thinner, piece of cardstock using the same die to use as a guide.  I attached the guide to the black cardstock using temporary adhesive.  Then I was able to add liquid adhesive in the letter openings and easily insert the letters.  Once I was done I removed the guide and all of the letters were perfectly placed and secure.

I love this sentiment!  Thanks for coming by today.  See you again soon!
