PTI - Create Along

Create Along With Us: December 2015


During Release week each month, Nichole has started this challenge taking the place of Make It Monday, that allows us to select something the amazing PTI design team has created which inspired us and create our own version.  This project could use a color scheme, a technique and/or revisit an older stamp/die set.  Sound like fun?  I think so too ;-)

   How sweet is Nichole's card?

I really love this new floral set that Maile designed.  Here is my card using Nichole's beautiful sample above.

Day 1-Card 1

The Cuttlebug EF-Snowflakes panel is more chartreuse IRL and the felt snowman is not so neon, but I took this photo in the bright sunlight out by my pool and had to hurry so it didn't fall into the water when a little breeze blew through :-) 

 The to-go cup is from Skipping Stones Design stamps which I won ~YAY!  in the Autumn Coffee Lover's Hop. 
Sentiment from Sweet 'n Sassy stamps "Cocoa'sLatte" set which I won the CLBH this Summer ~ YAY-again!

MIM #233


Danielle shares her tips for the splattering technique on this week's MIM Challenge.  Watch HERE to see how easy she makes it look with her beautiful gift tags. 

I have a tendency to 'over-do' sometimes (okay, it's more like all the time) so I really concentrated on splattering enough ink to look like snowfall and not a blizzard on this card.

My Card ~ This one's for you, Marcia H  ;-)

* PTI Song Birds dies are cut from textured aqua cs from Bazzill and mounted on blue glitter foam, then hot clued onto red glitzy  ribbon from the Dollar Tree. The leaves are cut from red foil and some are lifted up for (more) dimension.
* Tim Holtz "Christmas Background" is embossed onto PTI Stamper's Select White cardstock.
* The splattered shimmery ink is Summer Sky from Imagine Crafts

I went to Las Vegas for Thanksgiving this year, brought my iPad, but didn't have much time to use it.  So, gone for a week has put me waaaay behind on commenting.  Slowly but surely, I promise to make it by your Blogs to catch up ... you all have been very busy!  :-)
