PTI Paint By Number Challenge

Today's PTI Anniversary challenge is to use a particular color palette and cutting recipe to make a card, in honor of the new line of acrylic paints. I have to say I'm intrigued, since my painting and card making worlds have never collided in such a way before. Anyway, here is the palette I used--I have to say, I would never in a million years put these five colors together voluntarily, and I am secretly jealous of anyone whose first initial is between N and Z. I was pleasantly surprised with the result, though. Who knew? Okay, Nichole Heady did, of course.
These colors seemed pretty masculine to me, so I went with it. Did I mention how much I love Turning a New Leaf? Well, I do. I decided to tear the paper, rather than use scallops, and I made the Lemon Tart strip narrower, tucking it underneath.
Paper: PTI Vintage Cream, Ocean Tides, Spring Moss, Lemon Tart, Kraft
Ink: Versamark, Ocean Tides
Stamps: PTI Turning a New Leaf, Birthday Basics

  3. Ooh...great idea to tear that edge and stick part of that horizontal strip underneath!

National Craft Month Celebration Blog Hop

Hello, friends!  I am honored to be a part of the National Craft Month Celebration Blog Hop with Right at Home Stamps.  Hopefully you've come from Linda's blog.

We are celebrating our hobby of papercrafting by bringing our community together and spending a day doing what we love.  Come hop with all of us, leave comments along the way, and you will be entered to win this awesome stamp set:

It's called "Make Something Beautiful", and it is being released today.  It's so fun to have a stamp set that is dedicated to our love of all things crafty--scrapbooking, painting, cardmaking, sewing, and any and all combinations of the above.  Here are two cards I've made with this set.  Those tools begged to be paper-pieced with some sparkly silver paper!

For this one I heat embossed the images in white on navy cardstock, as well as fussy cutting the tools out of the silver paper.  Then I used a Copic marker to shade the hearts and sentiment in red for a pop of color.

Papertrey Blog Hop-March

It has been a long time, but I thought I'd jump back in to the Papertrey Blog Hop this month.  I couldn't resist creating something with these beautiful patterns as inspiration.

Here's my take on it:

I used the Anniversary Set: Painted Petals, a combination of heat embossing, coloring with Copics on that heat embossing, fussy cutting and die cutting.  Very fun.

Do it anyway.

Oh how much I've needed to hear this all week.  
Thank you to Beth for a very insightful and thought-provoking post.  More cards to come soon.
