PTI - SEPTEMBER 2018 BLOG HOP INSPIRATION

Hello and happy day!

I'm participating in this month PTI - SEPTEMBER BLOG HOP INSPIRATION....



Here is the INSPIRATION PHOTO....


My inspiration came from the overall "Thanksgiving" theme, the pumpkin color and the leaves. 

I kept my card clean and simple using the PTI - Text & Texture: Leaves Stamp Set, along with sentiment from the PTI - Autumn Pumpkins Set. I also incorporated the simple leaf from the Leaf Prints Set and matching die. I simply finished it off by adding some Gold Pearls on both sides...voila!

Thank you for stopping by and happy hopping!

PTI - MAKE IT MONDAY #337

Hello and happy Monday!

Todau, I'm playing once again in the PTI - MAKE IT MONDAY #337 - PACKAGING WITH PRINTED PAPER.....




Melissa Phillips always has the cutest gift ideas and wrapping. With "Halloween" right around the corner I figured I'd craft something along those lines.

I used the sweet "Frankenstein" face and "Hugs" tag from the Halloween Hugs Mini Kit. The treat bag itself is from the Favor it Box 2 Die using the Amethyst Allure Design Paper for my base.  I decorated the bag with the "Spider Web" Corner Adorner from the August Release...next I bedazzled it with lots of Black Glitter, plus I added some Ribbon and a tiny Clothes Pin.

Hope you have a chance to play along? Thank you so much for stopping by!

PTI - MAKE IT MONDAY #336 - FAUX GILDED

Happy Monday!

I was smitten by the fabulous "faux gilded"card Laurie Schmidlin has crafted for this weeks PTI - MAKE IT MONDAY #336 CHALLENGE....




I decided to use the PTI - AUTUMN PUMPKINS SET for my design. I really loved Laurie's tone on tone card and I also decided to use the Kraft CS. For the background I used the PTI - Text & Texture: Leaves Set. For adding a little bit more interest in the design I added some piercing, some splatters of black ink and some Pearls.

Thank you for stopping by! Have a fabulous new week!

Happy weekend everyone!

Hope you are have a great relaxing one? We are just chillin' and enjoying a few college football games on TV.

Since I'm trying to get my stamping groove back on, I decided to play along in the PTI - CREATE ALONG WITH US: SEPTEMBER CHALLENGE......



Once again, Papertrey Ink hit it out of the ballpark with their new holiday release. I love the new collection by Dawn McVey called "Sweet Stitching"....and of course all the fabulous ideas she crafted for this September Release and I chose this card to case....


I also tried to keep my card clean and simple. The PTI - Paper Clippings: Thank You Die was the perfect pick for my card, along with the PTI - Dot Spot Stamp Set....voila!

Thank you for stopping by!

CASE THIS SKETCH #289

Happy Day!

Gosh, I can't believe I have not stamped in almost 4 months....yikes! I had a very busy, but yet relaxing summer. Our girls are growing up way tooooo fast and I enjoyed hanging out with them. We know our days are numbered with them showing interest wanting to be with us....so I had to soak in all the time they wanted to hang out :) !!! Hard to believe...our Sarah is a Junior in her Marketing Bachelor Degree, Rebecca is a Senior in High School and Miriam is a 8th Grader this year. WOW!



Anyways, I'm a bit rusty.... and needed some serious inspiration. After looking around, I found this fun sketch by CASE THIS SKETCH #289 .....
