Dress Up Inspiration


I'm playing along with the Papertrey Ink 9th Anniversary Celebration.
The challenge is to create a new project that is inspired by
a piece of clothing/outfit from our closet or an online clothing retailer.

I was inspired by the colors & design of this dress.
(I photographed my card with a printed copy of the dress.)

The flowers & sentiment are stamped with Onyx Black ink & clear-embossed.

Stamps:  (PTI)-Botanical Blocks III, Tag-Its #12
Dies:  (PTI)-Stitched Rectangles
Ink:  Onyx Black
Other:  Clear-Embossing Powder, Seam Binding, Foam Adhesive

Thanks for your visit.
Have a lovely day.

Heart & Love

It has been a while since I've made a TAG-CARD.
This one is top-folding, and a tag is also added to the inside for a handwritten message.
Three distress inks were applied on the SSS-Tag, and the SSS-Die-Cut Heart was adhered.
The SSS-Love sentiment is clear-embossed and inked with the same distress inks.
(Every time I use pink, I am reminded of my Sweet Mom.)

I'm playing along with the following:
 (Worn Lipstick Distress Ink is my Hint of Red.)

Stamps:  (SSS)-Hello Friends
Dies:  (SSS)-Stitched Dress Up Tags, Heart of Roses
Inks:  VersaMark, Spun Sugar, Worn Lipstick, Picked Raspberry
Other:  Clear-Embossing Powder, Hug-Snug Seam-Binding, Sequins, Foam Adhesive

Thanks for your visit.
Have a lovely day.

Papertrey January 2016 Blog Hop Challenge

I'm playing along with the Papertrey-January 2016 Blog Hop Challenge.
When I first saw the inspiration photo, I immediately thought of using speech bubbles.

The phone is clear-embossed.

Nichole provided this photo as our inspiration.

Watercolored Stripes


I used Black Soot Distress Ink to watercolor some paper.
Then, the paper was cut into strips to create the background.
Another paper was inked with various shades of pink Distress Inks.
Then, the MFT- hello was die-cut from the pink-inked paper.
Glossy Accents was applied to the "hello" die-cut.

I'm playing along with the MFT-Wednesday Sketch Challenge-Sketch 262.

Also, playing along with the SSS-Wednesday Challenge-Something New.
(The "hello" die is new to me.)

Thanks for your visit.
Have a lovely day.
