MAKE IT MONDAY THROWBACK: MASKING SENTIMENTS


Create a project utilizing your take on the challenge. Your project must use at least one Papertrey product and include masking sentiments.

I LOVE Make it Mondays!!!
Really love them! 
I love it when we revisit them.


I get in a rut and forget about techniques.
This one is a goodie. Thank you Ashley, for reviving it!


I haven't used Beautiful Berries:Spring for a while!
It needed an appearance.

This one is a bit tricky for me to stamp when I don't use the die, but it is still such a pretty stamp!

Sequins also needed to get out of the jar! They add such texture...



I made 10 of this one. Maybe my fall sale wont be as daunting if I can keep this up all summer!

Thank you for looking at my blog!

MAKE IT MONDAY #321: INK BLENDING ON COLORED CARDSTOCK


Create a project utilizing your take on the challenge. Your project must use at least one Papertrey product and include ink blending on colored cardstock


I LOVE this technique! I am not the greatest ink blender but this was pretty forgiving. Small spaces and you are looking for color saturation.



I wanted to use our new Weathervane card stock. I have wanted a gray for so long!!!
I also remembered Fresh Bouquet had an outline image...


My love of sprays convinced me to use it.
I actually think this is faster than stamping.
There are a lot of stamps for this image so it takes time to ink them all up and stamp them.
Its pretty fast to ink blend...



I made 10 of this one! So glad I am getting slightly ahead of my stock.

Thank you for looking at my blog!

PAPERTREY INK MAKE IT MONDAY #320: SPOT COLOR WORD DIECUTS


Create a project utilizing your take on the challenge. Your project must use at least one Papertrey product and include spot coloring with word die cuts.

Betsy's card is amazing...mine...

I do not own a single Copic marker, so I do not purchase stamps that need to be colored. So I am limited to images that have a line image and a solid stamp to add color.

I almost always go to Vintage Linen, my all time favorite floral.


It is kind of hard to read...I used  Counting My Blessings Die to cut the word, blessed.


Thank you for looking at my blog!

MAKE IT MONDAY #319: GRAFFITI WORD ART


Create a project utilizing your take on the challenge. Your project must use at least one Papertrey product and include graffiti word art.


Lexi has the best techniques.
I just loved this one!



I used the Happy from Tipped Tops.
Also Balloon Bash.


I also used Melissa's  Embossing Enamel Splatter technique. 
This time I used some dots of embossing ink to hold the powder down. 
It worked SO much better.


I LOVE it when Lexi does the MIM's
This was a good one!

Thank you for looking at my blog!

MAKE IT MONDAY #317: USING OUTLINE IMAGES


Create a project utilizing your take on the challenge. Your project must use at least one Papertrey product and include using outline images to accent your project.


I liked this technique way more that I thought I would. I LOVE color, so I thought the white space would bother me. But the images I chose filled it in more that I planned...



I used the blooms from Warm Regards...my current obsession!
I played around with leaves and they were all more harsh than I liked so I used 
the bloom cluster from Floral Sketches. I LOVE that cluster. I use it a lot to fill in space.




I also love the sentiments from Penned Elegance!
So pretty.

I have a new "rule" when I am working.
If I make a card I like, I force myself to make at least 8-10.
I would love to get ahead on my inventory so I am not making so many cards in a big rush!
I made 9 of this one!

Thank you for looking at my blog!

Create a project utilizing your take on the challenge. Your project must use at least one Papertrey product and include stenciled edges.

I LOVE this technique! Thank you Lizzie. Seems like a simple idea I should have known about!
So glad to add it to my arsenal!


I also love Lizzie's Warm Regards. This was the first time I had a chance to use it. 
It won't be the last


I used Dawn's Hexagon stencil, the small one.

I am so happy with this card. I will be using this technique again!

Thank you for looking at my blog!
