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!

Thank you for looking at my blog!

MAKE IT MONDAY #290: COMBINING STENCILING AND MASKING

Stencil-Mask-still2


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


Oh. My. Goodness!!!
I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Betsy's GORGEOUS card!!!!!
So...I nearly copied it verbatim!
I HAD to! Her's is so pretty.

I do not have Betsy's Herb Garden set, but I do have Beautiful Berries. But you already
know that 'cause I've used it on nearly every challenge since I got it.
I love it that much!

I am pretty good at improvising...
I used Mix & Mat: Pretty Brackets. The dashed frame gave me a way to cut out the inside
giving me a stencil. It is a wavy line mimicking Betsy's stencil.


It is obviously not as awesome as Betsy's stencil but it is a pretty good representation.



I should have inked my background a bit more...I was trying to not get too 
aggressive so it is a bit light.


I am in love!!! I LOVE this card and the technique was fun.
I hope my stencil hold up to make a few more cards...I definitely
want to make few more!

It's Betsy's fault I used Beautiful Berries, again!
Not mine...I'm innocent!!!
