Half Full?

Hello Friends!  I've been making cards all weekend.  I feel a little rusty but its so great to get creative.  I picked up this wine set from PTI a month or two ago and today was the first chance I had to use it.  Lining up those die cuts was a breeze with my MISTI.  I had lots of fun with the fancy flourishes as well.  This card is already in an envelope... hopefully I will remember to post it tomorrow!  Hope you have a great week!

Another MISTI fan

Hi Friends!  Guess what I did?  I jumped on the MISTI bandwagon!  And I am so glad I did.  My MISTI arrived last week and I was smitten after the first stamp.  I used it to create the card below.

I used two PTI sets- Natural Beauties and Fancy Flourishes.  The best thing about the MISTI is it lets you easily double or triple stamp the same image.  See how crisp that sentiment is?  I triple stamped it- easily and with no blurring or mis stamps!  MISTI is totally worth the money.

Papertrey Ink Anniversary Challenge Day 3

Hello friends!  I am enjoying my day off.  Got in a little crafty time in between writing lesson plans and correcting essays.  I do apologize for not editing the picture- time is of the essence around here.
Today's PTI anniversary challenge was to "spring into action and use a set that hadn't see ink".  I have the pretty petals free gift set from December.  It was still all wrapped up so I broke it open and inked it up.  I used berry sorbet, harvest gold and spring moss ink.  The lighter pink is just berry sorbet stamped off.

PTI Anniversary Challenge

Hello Friends!  It's been a good long while.  I offer no excuses except to say my creative times are few and far between and teaching 7th grade is a 50 hour a week job.  Anyhow, its anniversary time over at Papertrey Ink.  They are celebrating 8 years in the business with lots of challenges and give aways.  This challenge can be found here.  The challenge was to build a bouquet using two or more floral sets.  I've got two floral sets here:  Birds and Blooms and Mini Blooms.  I used New Leaf, Harvest Gold, Hawaiian Shores, Tropical Teal, Berry Sorbet, and Select White.  Everything else is pretty self explanatory.  Have a fabulous day and thanks for stopping by.
