Close to My Heart - Punny Pals


Happy Saturday!

Today, I have fun birthday card for my grand-nephew who turned 4 yesterday.  He loves tigers, so I thought Close to My Heart's "Punny Pals" was the perfect stamp set to use for his card this year.  

This set is CTMH's Operation Smile stamp set.  When you purchase this stamp set, CTMH will donate $7 USD of the proceeds to Operation Smile™, a non-profit organization that provides surgeries to repair cleft lips and palates for children around the world.



The image was stamped with Memento black ink on white X-Press It blending cardstock.  I colored the tiger image with Copic markers: YR02, YR04, YR06, W5, W7;  Background: BG000, W1,W3, W5.  Simple and quick.

The papers are from My Favorite Things "Fun and Frolic".  
Cardstock PaperTrey Ink Orange Zest and Smokey Shadow.

Blessings to you,

PaperTrey ink - Hands of Time


Happy Saturday!

Today I have a card I made with a new set I got from PaperTrey Ink called "Hands of Time".  I've liked this set since it first came out however since it was on their retiring list I decided to get it.  I looked on their website and the stamp  set is no longer available. 


I created 2 cards using Papertrey Ink inks Soft Stone, Smokey Shadow and True Black.  Cardstock is PTI Soft Stone and Smokey Shadow. The patterned paper is PTI Soft Stone. 

The clock faces were stamped, on the Soft Stone cardstock, in Smokey Shadow ink and it is hard to see in the picture but they are stamped in soft stone ink also to create a watermark background.  The hands were stamped in black and cut out using my Brother Scan N Cut, which makes it easy.

Simon Says Stamp! Thanks


Happy Saturday!

Today I have a really simple card using another die edge from my collection.  I've had this dies for some time so I'm so glad I pulled it out and used it.  The die is from Simon Says Stamp! 'Thanks Scallop Border'.  

A card really does get faster than this one, this die cuts all the details and paired it with PaperTrey Ink Hawaiian Shores cardstock and patterned paper.

I'm really loving the coordinating patterned papers PTI came out with.

Making a set of cards would be a great gift idea for a new mom, grad or bride.
