PTI Anniversary day 9 challenge-Building Blocks

building blocksToday’s challenge is titled “Building Blocks of Design,” to go along with today’s new reveals, built around the Building Blocks stamps and dies. I’m going to have to get these. As often happens, I wasn’t too sure about these products until I saw the design team’s creations with them, and now I have to find a way to include them in my order on Saturday. (Oh, how I need to win one of the prizes they’re giving away this month! There’s so much on my wishlist from this release, as in all of it!) visiting the blogs of each of the design team, armed with a random number generator, I got my elements to include in my creation. I needed to include Pure Poppy, Berry Sorbet, New Leaf and Vintage cream, incorporating heat embossing, rhinestones and ribbon on a Thank you card based on sketch #1. Here is the result. ALL products are from Papertrey Ink EXCEPT for: red embossing powder ( Ranger), rhinestones (Recollections-they were clear but I colored them with a Copic marker), and the solid bar stamp between the die-cut “Thank You” and the heat embossed “for all that you do”(Impress). Thanks for checking in.

PTI 7th anniversary Day 3 challenge

IMG_0956Papertrey Ink’s Day 3 challenge for their big 7th anniversary proceedings is to take 7 minutes to gather 7 things to use in a card you can make in 17 minutes. It was tough, and I had to “cheat” a little bit by not counting the different scraps of card I used. I did use 1)one Papertrey Ink stamp set- Stylish Sentiments, 2) Mat Stack 1 Layerz die, 3)VersaMark watermark ink pad, 4)Stampendous detail black embossing powder, 5) PTI White card for the front and card base, 6)green card stock (unknown) for the mat, and 7) various scraps of card stock for the layers I put together after I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment on each one! Not perfect, and I’m about to send it to my nephew for his 14th birthday, but done, and (mostly) within the parameters.
