Hi there! I needed to kill some time until my PTI stamps and stuff arrive and looked for some distraction in blogger land :-) And here it is: CPS 104 sketch is again sponsered by Papertrey, so I thought I'd play along while waiting for my order :o) I used the sketch for a small card to accompany a box of homemade cookies (yes, on Ash Wednesday!) for a friend. Here's what I came up with:
I hope you like it! Okay, I'm off to learn some vocab (taking some Swedish lessons since a couple of weeks).
... time can pass by soooo slowly... Last week, I decided to clean up some of the mess in my drawers and guess what? I found an envelope from Christmas with some cash!! I really forgot to pay the money into the bank. Yeah, and then, there was this PTI release and I thought... Well, if you forgot about it, than you can spend it on tax, customs and stuff to buy your first PTI stamps *biggrin** So, okay, I made a huge order a week ago and just checked with the USPS site and found out that the parcel finaly arrived the country and goes through customs at the moment. Argh, hope that won't take too long. I can't wait to get my hands on the stamp sets :-))
*EDIT*: As the stamps didn't turn out as nice as they should, I changed the card once again before giving it away :-) I like this version much better now with some pink and just a plain white background (see above)!
Here's a new birthday card I made for a friend based on a color combo used on the "Sweet Baby Girl" Card by the super talented Dawn McVey. It's also my contribution for Dawn's Damask Set challenge :-) The original colors were melon berry, pixie pink, vintage cream and a little black.
This card was a real challenge for me: First, I could use my new October Afternoon stamps - but they didn't turned out too well as you can see... Then, I had a try on my first handmade paper flowers. The idea for the flowers is from Anja Noack, a tutorial can be found here. And not enough for the flower making, I put my hands on a sewing machine, the first time since around... hmm,... ten years? It was a lot of fun putting the card toghether!
Hi! Today, I made a 2-in-1 challenges card. I used the CPS sketch sponsored by PTI to make a card for my best friend :-) Instead of a "normal" card, I did a card using an origami squash fold. The color combination of pink and red is a bit unusual, but I like it. What do you think?
Look what I've done for the PTI card sketch challenge. This time, my card involves a bit of recycling. See the corrugated card board? Actually it was an envelope, I just ripped of a bit of the surface. If you want to add some more color, you could use some bigger eyelets and tie some ribbon around them. The New Leaf Ribbon Collection of PTI would fit very well, I think :-)
Paper: white cardstock from stash, corrugated card board (from Amazon ;) )
Photo: the sunflower was photographed by myself
Others: Guetermann eyelets, MM eyelet setter, Cuttelbug swiss dots folder
My first blog entry ever! I finally decided to join the fun over at Papertrey Ink, which in turn brought me to start a blog :-) So, ... about the card. We were challenged to use four colors: Pure Poppy, Summer Sunrise, Ripe Avocado and Ocean Tides. I actually don't have one of the gorgeous PTI products since shipping and customs sadly exeeds the cost of the stamps by far. I decided to put the card together digitally and then print it onto white card stock.
I hope that you'll find this blog entertaining and useful as well! Thanks so much for stopping by... and come back soon ;-)
