Card Recognition

Sunday, March 20, 2011

thanks, times 3

It all started with a partially embossed label for this week's PTI Make It Monday challenge.  But knowing me, I get started and then I keep going...  so here's three takes on a similar idea, with a few extra challenges throw into the mix.

This card uses this week's Waltzingmouse Sketch challenge. Thank you Karen for this fabulous banner.



This passport cover is in this week's Etsy Inspired Challenge.



Isn't this week's Moxie Fab World Tuesday Trigger fabulous?  My first thought when I saw this was the PTI button die, and thankfully my dear friend Jen sent me a few just in time!  Now I've got a few more thank you cards in my stash... although I've taken the first baby steps for an etsy shop, after some super encouraging suggestions from some card buyers.  Hopefully I'll get the time to really figure things out, but I'm excited about the idea in the mean time.

Materials: 1st card: Practicing Creativity Look Up banner, Cuttlebug embossing folder, PTI Daily Designs sentiment, Versafine black ink, Stampin Up ribbon, Stampin Up Kiwi bliss card stock,  Spellbinders Nestabilities Label 8

2nd card: Spellbinders Nestabilities Label 8, Cuttlebug embossing folder, PTI Daily Designs sentiment,  Hero Arts dot swirl stamp, PTI Warm Happiness Too die/stamp and steam, black & white card stock from Ben Franklin

3rd card: Spellbinders Nestabilities Label 8, Cuttlebug embossing folder, PTI Daily Designs sentiment, May Arts navy blue ribbon, PTI button dies, PTI kraft card stock, PTI natural fiber, lillac string,

All 3 of these are great - I love the pop of colour with the banner, the pretty swirls peeking out under the coffee cup, and the great faux buttons on the last card :)

Way to go with all of those challenges! These cards are so great! I love how you used the banner on the first one, and you have that impression plate thing down pat! I failed miserably and decided to Make It a NEW Monday tomorrow :)

Three great cards...I love the banner one and how clever to use it against a nestabilities die cut background. Thanks for playing along with the Waltzingmouse Stamps Sketch Challenge this week!

Love your design! Love all three cards but the first one really caught my eye. I think it must be the color.

What wonderful textural cards. All so very cool! (The Kraft button one is my fave though).
