Calling All Couches

Here comes the invasion of the couches! I dedicate this post to my blogging pal Jen, who keeps threatening to buy this PTI set, here you go Jen, you can do it. Here's the direct link (yes I am evil, but wait you also need the On My Couch Additions, click here).

I made this card the other night for the ColourQ challenge and I liked it so much that I wanted to make some more cards. (It helps that my husband went out of his way to mention that he liked the other card too, always nice to hear that.) So I thought I'd try a few color challenges with the same card.

This card is for Susan's Simplicity One Layer Wednesday Challenge, the theme was "make a scene". Don't mind the finger prints on this one, they can't all be perfect right?


This one is for The Play Date Cafe. I used the same piece of paper for another card for them this week, so I figured I'd just use my scraps for the couch card.


This one is for Stacey's Curtain Call challenge.


And finally this one is for Just Add Ink. Now I think it's time to go sit on the couch and put my feet up.

Materials: First card: PTI On My Couch Additions chair, rug and sentiment, PTI On My Couch side table and coffee cup, Versacolor Red ink, Stampin Up black ink, white card stock

Second Card and Third Card: PTI On My Couch couch and pillows stamp, On My Couch Additions rug and sentiment, patterned paper scraps, Stampin Up black ink, white card stock

Fourth Card: PTI On My Couch couch and pillows stamp, On My Couch Additions rug and sentiment, Stampin Up Red designer paper, Stampin Up chocolate chip designer paper, PTI kraft card stock

Good for you for putting your feet up! After a long day like yours, and some fresh baked cookies, why not! Love this array of cards, especially the paper pieced couches. And I say if the finger prints bother you, chop/crop it down some and end up with a fun mini card!
