PaperTrey Ink - Guiding Lights with Stitched dies



Happy Saturday!

Today, I have a redo of a card I made last year, because I got some new dies that I thought would really add a little extra to the card.  The stamp set is PaperTrey Ink - Guiding Lights.   

The dies are MFT Stitched Valley, Memorybox Swirl Stitched Clouds and Simon Says Stamp Twisted stitch borders.  It was really fun to mix all these different dies to create this lighthouse scene.  I also used some patterned paper for something a little different.

I created a few cards, horizontal and vertical scenes.


Supplies List:

Stamps: PTI "Guiding Lights
Cardstock: PTI - Pure New Leaf, Spring Rain, Aqua Mist, White
Ink: PTI - Pure Poppy and true Black
Die: MFT Stitched Valley, Memorybox Swirl Stitched Clouds and Simon Says Stamp Twisted stitch borders

PaperTrey Ink - 7th Inning Stretch


Happy Saturday!

Today, I have a baseball card I made last weekend.  I've had this set for quite some time it is from PaperTrey Ink - "7th Inning Stretch" and die set.  

I made a few with different patterned papers.  The bat is die cut from Kraft cardstock, then I stamped it with a woodgrain stamp and Chocolate Brown ink.  Then created the grip with masking tape.  The stitching is an Angel Company stamp - Running Stitches, which was nice to use again.  

I ended up pulling out some TAC stamps last weekend.  Some TAC ladies were doing a card swap so I was working on that also.  I didn't actually use TAC stamps for my swap but I had them out. I will share my swap card in May. 


Supplies List:

Stamps: PTI "7th Inning Stretch
Inks: PTI - Pure Poppy, Chocolate Brown
Cardstock: PTI - Kraft and White
Die: PTI 7th Inning Stretch die set

Sympathy - Brayer Ink Background


Happy Saturday!

I was looking through Pinterest for inspiration and was reminded of a brayer technique I hadn't done in years with reinker inks and baby wipe.

I placed the wipe on a large acrylic block and inked it with purples, blues and greens.  Then I used a brayer to pick up the stripes and apply the ink to the paper.  Originally I was hoping to create a landscape scene, but it I didn't come up with anything I liked so I just die cut the background and stamped a the sentiment and added some smooth bubble gems.




The mat is vellum, another inspiration from a card I saw online.  I always forget about using vellum, it adds a lot of interest.   

In the end this card took 3 weeks to come together.  Sometimes it is just hard, but I love how it came together in the end.

Here is a second card with the background, this one I pressed the paper on the inked wipe so the texture transferred.



Details:
Stamp: The Cat's Meow - Hope Blooms
Die: Lil Inkers Stitched Rectangles
Papers: PTI White, Indigo Blue, Vellum
Embellishments: Recollections smooth bubble gems
