Feb. 21-13, Lots of New Projects

I feel good if a few days go by and I am able to get 'a few' crafty projects done. The last few days have been just that, have completed a couple of card, many of which I've used my latest stamps and dies from PTI. The quality and precision that their products continue to amaze me. The first card is one made with the 'Happy Hexagon' stamp set and the die plate. I really couldn't quite figure out exactly how to use these in an artistic way....until I watch Nichole's video that shows you three different ways to use the products. I can't find it again to link it for you, but if you have these PTI sets, it's worth looking for. Next, I really want to make a dent in my stash, and I KNOW I can makes things with my stash, so I am determined :), so I made these cute little gift cards using an old set of Am. Crafts rub-ons and and older set of Basic Grey brads, combined them with a new PTI 'Half and Half' stamp set and some bakers twine. The third card I used my new 'Rosie Posie' stamp and die set, and an old set of Autumn Leaves journaling stamps, the sentiment is from PTI Think BIg Favorites #22." I used a lot of layers of the flowers, stamped in PTI's scarlet red, autumn rose and a light pink Colorbox ink, then popped them up with pop dots. I embossed the sentiment with clear embossing powder, and finished it off with some twine.

  4. Oh by the way, copics don't really blend on their own. I color in the lightest first. Then the darkest in the areas where there are shadows. Then, using the lighter color, I color in the part where they are supposed to blend (does that even make sense?!?!?!)
