MAKE IT MONDAY #296: SMALL IMAGES ON REPEAT

Small images hello squ

Create a project utilizing your take on the challenge. Your project must use at least one Papertrey product and repeating small images.


I used my cell phone for this picture...didn't turn out very well...

I really need get well cards so my image is a bit larger than the ones Lexi used but it is my favorite Get Well image, so I used it!

Thank you for looking at my blog!

MAKE IT MONDAY #294: MONOCHROME COLOR POP

IMG_4678

Create a project utilizing your take on the challenge. Your project must use at least one Papertrey product and monochrome with a color pop.

Fun technique...


I LOVE this Mix and Mat: Pretty Brackets. It is so easy to cut it out and gives a lot of color and dimension.

I used Pinfeather ink to stencil my background with the Woodgrain Stencil.


All 3 pieces of the Mix and Mat were used with pinfeather card stock.
My color pop was White! It worked for me.



I am hoping this will be a masculine birthday card.
Brandon's birthday is the 18th.

MAKE IT MONDAY #293: COLOR SLIDER CARDS

MIM Thinking Of You Card

-Create a project utilizing your take on the challenge. Your project must use at least one Papertrey product and a color slider card.

My oh my!!! What a challenging challenge!

I won't even tell you how long this one took!!!
I wanted an image I didn't have to color...and I had to do it twice because the first one was just too ugly...
I do not have Staz On ink, YIKES!!!
So the one I'm posting uses vellum. I just could not get away with the smearing with regular ink.

I LOVE the technique but you apparently HAVE to use Staz On...

So...here it is...
Not my best work...my image is very hard to see...





Also the line image is a bit too dark so it overshadowed the colored image...
In retrospect I could have used a purple ink on the vellum. I tried using a colored ink on the original acetate. EPIC fail. I got so frustrated, I just let it be!

Probably should have kept this one to myself... :(

JULY 2017 BLOG HOP

Blog-hop-logo

Blog Hop Inspiration

YIKES!!!

Where did July go??? How did it get to be the 25th???

To say the least...I forgot today was Blog Hop day... :(

So after meeting a lady from Florida who heard about my card mission and wanted to buy some cards, I quickly went to make one for the hop!!!


Why do you notice things about your cards when you photograph them you don't see before...?


My buds kinda look like pink radishes when they are upside down...
I like radishes, tho!


Anyway, a broken record...it's been another busy week!
Does anyone not have a busy week???
If you don't, let me know, PLEASE!!!

Thank you for looking at my blog

MAKE IT MONDAY #291: EMBOSS RESIST SHADOW SENTIMENTS

AshleyCannonNewell_July2017-MakeItMonday_PapertreyInk_1

Create a project utilizing your take on the challenge. Your project must use at least one Papertrey product and an emboss resist shadow sentiment.

I chose to make a tag. It made the inking go a lot faster!!!

I did have a bit of glare on the picture of the top card...Looks like the stamping is washed out...it's the the shiny embossing.


I used Initial Sentiments: Birthday. I bought it when it was released but just hadn't used it...
I really love the circle HB but thought it might get smeared...


It is a fun technique. I wanted to try Ashley's idea of using solid paper but didn't take the time.
Colin is helping me clean out cabinets and closets. Gotta make hay while the sun shines...
He will be a working man soon... :(

Create Along With Us: July 2017

Create a project utilizing inspiration you've seen during release week. Your project must use at least one Papertrey product.

Flat

I really love this card of Nichole's. 
I obviously do not have any mountain dies...
so, I improvised!
I used 2 of Dawns Edger dies, #3 and #4




I enjoyed inking the night sky. I loved it from last years Stamp-a-Faire.
My mountains came out alright. But it needs something else and can't figure out what...


Anyway, I need those mountains...
I used my Stamp-a-Faire gold gilding paint.
Worked like a charm...great tip!
