PTI Make It Monday- Glitter Accents

Hello friends!  It appears I am on a roll- three days, three posts- perhaps the secret is my iphone photos.  No editing and no uploading saves on time.  I can go straight from my phone to flickr to my blog.  I sacrifice quality but well at least I have something to show right?
Here is today's card in all its unedited glory, LOL.  I made the glitter accents using PTI's star border die.  The stamps are from their new birthday sentiment set that was released last month.  I am using Aqua Mist paper with Hawaiian Shores Ink.  The glitter is WOW from American crafts.  I just picked up a huge pack (like over 20 bottles of glitter) at Tuesday Morning for the bargain price of 14 bucks.  I will never be able to use all that glitter!  Thanks for stopping in today and if you would like to see the rest of PTI's Make It Monday entries just click here.

PTI Blog Hop- Monograms

Hello friends!  What a shocker this is- finding myself ready for a blog hop on time!  This month the challenge at Papertrey Ink is to create something with a monogram.  I made a little note card with my initials.
I started by cutting out the white panel.  I found center and then stamped my initials with PTI's outline alphabet.  I colored the letters with my copic markers using a lighter green for the top.  I stamped the flowers from Mini Blooms with melon berry, summer sunrise, and new leaf ink and then wrapped a piece of melon berry ribbon around the bottom.  The whole thing is mounted on a New Leaf card base.  Thanks for stopping by today.

Mini Blooms Tags and Card

Hello my friends!  It has been awhile.  I just haven't been feeling the blogging bug lately.  I've been creating plenty but when the card is done I haven't been photographing or uploading.  I keep thinking the want will come back eventually and hopefully I will get back on some type of schedule.  I had thought about scheduling it out but then this isn't my job- I have one of those and as much as I love it its still work.  I certainly don't want my hobby to be work too.  So there you have it.  Anyway today I do have a little something for you.  Its taken with my iphone so the pictures are not edited.  I am all about easy lately. 
Tags are up first.  These are made with the new PTI set Mini Blooms.  I love this set already.  I have only had it in my possession for a few days but I love it.  The tags are also PTI- the Tremendous tags.  I stamped using Melon berry, summer sunrise, and new leaf ink.  I used the mini bloom dies to make the pop ups.
Here we have the matching card.  I actually made the tags first and then was inspired by the colors.  I stamped the large corner leaf/flower image in green and then added colored flowers using the die cuts.  I added the melon berry ribbon (right over where I smudged- LOL) and called it a day.  Thanks for coming by- I appreciate you coming back to read here even when the posts are sporadic!
