October Blog Hop

Hey all!  So this months challenge over at the Papertrey Blog Hop is to use 6 color ways that dn't fit the traditional Christmas color themes and make a Christmas card.  I started with the Royal Velvet, Enchanted Evening, Raspberry Fizz and Blueberry Sky.  Now what I did was make very similar cards with a few twists with several of the color options. I started with the Avery Elle Circle It stamp set and stamped the bachgroud dots in white pigment ink. Then stamped the snowman from Hero Arts in Enchanted Evening ink on a Blueberry Sky cardstock and white PTI cardstock. Die cut the snow man and colored with colored pencils in the color theme. I stamped and die cut the greeting also on whited cardstock. Popped it up with foam tape.  Added a few sequins for sparkle.  Thanks for stopping by,

Inspired Challenge

Papertrey has a challenge to use some of their achrived color and sketch cards.  This card uses both the color and sketch card below.

Thanks for stopping by, Sentimentally Sue.

Watercolored Hello

Hello!  This card started with a piece of watercolored card stock I had laying on my stamp desk. The Hello was also just laying on my desk from another project.  It was cut from white card stock and the Wonderful Words: Hello from Papertrey Ink. I cut the hello down and mounted it over the water colored scrap.  Then punched the holes on the ends and got my bakers twine ready in yellow and orange.  I took a piece of Orange Zest card stock from PTI and did a partial die cut with the Beautiful Butterflies set also from PTI. Stamped a few butterflies with white pigment ink from Stampin Up and mounted it all on a white card base.  
Popped the greeting uo with foam squares and tied the twine around the card.  I am going to enter this in Virginia's Die cut challenge, AAA cards water color challenge and PTI's Partial Die cut challenge.
Thanks for dropping by for a visit,

A Glowing, Watercolored Partial Die Cut

Hey all!  I wanted to create a fun card with a few challenges.  I started with a piece of water color paper and using Stampin Up watercolor crayons I created a circle with various shades of yellow and orange.  I then used a Spellbinders circle die and did a partial die cut over the watercoloring.  Using the Tim Holtz stapler to hold the cut portion back. Stamped the greeting from Papertrey Ink in Palette Noir ink. Then I made a card base with Summer Sunrise card stock from PTI and used Glossy Effects the hold my glitter in the center of the sun. This will be entered in the challenges below.  Thanks for stopping by,

PTI June Blog Hop #2

Hey all, This is the second card I created for the June blog hop over at Papertrey Ink.  I started with Beautiful Blooms II dies and cut out cardstock flowers using the color card I have shown below.  I then pieced the fowers together to create the pie cart shown on the sketch card.  Our challenge was to use the color and sketch cards they supplied to create our project.
I stamped the Turning a New Leaf set in Limeade Ice ink on a white PTI card, added the pie chart flower and accented it with a Summer Sunrise button.  I then die cut a "Hello" from white cardstock and stamped it with Aqua Mist ink with the Wonderful Words/Hello set. Finally I added the hello in Orange Zest ink from that same set.  Thanks for dropping by to check it out,
Sentimentally Sue.

PTI June Blog Hop

Hello!  Papertrey Ink's June Blog Hop is on us so I decided to get a little inky tonight!  They shared sketch and color cards with us and asked us to create projects using them as our inspiration.  My first card uses the colors listed on the color card and the stamp sets Sketched Shapes and Simple Sentiments.  I used a little black bakers twine for a accent.  The cards that I used are shown below my project.  Thanks for stopping by, Sentimentally Sue!

Shadow Stamped Butterflies & Winged Things

Hello!  So for today's card I thought I would try a couple challenges out there.  Simon Says Stamp Monday Blog Chalenge was to stamp winged things and the challenge over at Less is More was a single layer shadow stamped card.  I started with PTI white cardstock and a set called Beautiful Butterflies.  Stamped the greeting in Palette Noir ink.  Then used mint, sky and amethyst inks all from Stampin Up to stamp the butterflies each 3 times without reinking. I then added a few silver Colorbox ink butterflies. I spritzed on a little mint and amethyst ink and then added a few silver sequins. We have a bunch of weddings this summer so I thought I better get some cards made up.  Thanks for stopping by, Sentimentally Sue.

Masculine Shadow Stripe

Hello and Happy Friday to you!  Well we made it through ANOTHER blizzard last night.  I think we might make it to spring but I wish it would hurry up this cold and snow is getting to me.  I was thinking how mush I love my hubby this AM and thought it would be nice just to seek a card in his sock drawer to remind him.
This card uses the World's Greatest set from PTI, Cardstock from PTI and Stampin Up and ink from Stampin Up.  The technique is to stamp white pigment ink on white cardstock then stamp dye based ink over the top to create a shadow effect. I stamped the stripes from the Super Stripes set (PTI).  I wanted to enter this in the PTI Make-It-Monday challenge and the "Less is More" Masculine challenge. 
Thanks for stopping by!!

Happy Card and Myself

I can not figure out how to post this unless I make a separate post for the PTI site so as stupid as I feel here is my pic with my Happy Birthday card.  The info for the card is in the last post.

Happy 7th Birthday PTI!

Today's cards will be birthday in theme.  The challenge over at Papertrey is to create a birthday card to celebrate with them their 7th anniversary/birthday.  My card is clean and simple with a bit of sparkle.  I also want to enter it in the Card Concept pink challenge.  I started with PTI white card stock and stamped the "happy" in Palette Noir ink.  Colored in the image with Crayola colored pencils then blended the colors with Undo sticker remover. Stamped the birthday form the Pretty Peonies set (PTI). There was a little smudge on the birthday so I added the 1/4" strip of Score-Tape and glittered it.  Mounted it all on a PTI white card base with foam dots. Thanks for stopping by, Sentimentally Sue.

MR & MRS: Clean and Graphic

Hello, I wanted to try just one fun and crazy card for the day.  This might be my last one of the day.  I found a new challenge blog that looks like a lot of fun with some very respective designers. It is called The Card Concept. I like that they honor different style of stamping. So I made this card with that in mind and wanted to try a little twist on the drop shadow technique in the PTI blog. I think I am a Clean and Simple stamper at heart.  I started with PTI white card stock and stamped the mr and mrs in Pallette Noir ink.  The stamps are a very old Stampin Up set called Big Deal alphabet. I then die cut a heart from the Heart Prints dies(PTI) from white and Raspberry Fizz card stock.  Then took the white heart and re cut it with Grand Ampersand die. I popped the white heart a little to the left and layered it on the pink one with foam dots. Them mounted it on card front. Hope you all enjoy it. I know it was fun to make. 
Thanks for stopping by, Sentimentally Sue.
I will also submit this card in the CAS-olgy "AND" challenge and the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday "Heart" challenge.  Thanks again!

Trading Card...Hello

Man I am really having some original titles today, huh? Not! I had not tried the drop shadow technique that is being used for the Make-It-Monday Challenge so I thought I would throw that in with a trading card.  So we will enter both challenges on Nicole's Blog with this one.  I had heard the other day people asking for a mint colored ink.  I had to laugh because a long time ago I was a Stampin Up demo and we had Mint Melody ink.  Now I never used it much and couldn't even sell it at a deep discount when I tried.  I still own the pad and it is more than ten years old.  Everything comes back around if you can wait long enough.
So the mint ink and card stock are from Stampin Up. The white card stock, die and Hello stamp set are Papertrey Ink.  Thanks for the visit, Sentimentally Sue.

Trading Card...Thanks

Hey there, me again. If you are wondering why things are being typed this way on my blog, I have been having trouble with Blogger not letting retype or move things around.  Wish I could get it figured out but for now just making due.  This is my fourth trading card for the Papertrey Ink 7th Anniversary challenge. I am trying to work in the Color/Sketch challenge too. This one will also be added to the "Less is More" single layer challenge. So I started with the color/sketch cards below and some PTI white card stock.  Stamped the greeting in Smoky Shadow ink and then used the other colors to make the flowers using the Mini Blooms set from PTI also.  Thanks for dropping by, Sentimentally Sue.

Trading Card...Take Note

Well this will be trading card #3 for Papertrey's 7th Anniversary Challenge.  I started with a Project Life journalling card from Becky Higgins.  I has a subtle grey color to it so I used Soft Stone card stock for the stamped arrow strip.  The arrows are from Sketched Shape stamp set from PTI. The greeting and paper clip are from Take Note stamp set. I will enter this in the Trading card challenge and the Color/Sketch challenges over on the blog Capture The Moment.  The first pic will be the color/sketch cards and the second will be my project. Hope you can drop by again, Sentimentally Sue.

Trading Card...Cute

First pic will show the Color/Sketch cards and the second will be my project.
Thanks for stopping by, Sentimentally Sue.

Trading Card...Love

Happy Saturday to you!  Hope you have a little sunshine to brighten your day today.
As part of Papertrey's 7 year anniversary celebration they are having challenges.  Today's challenge was to make 3" by 4" trading cards.  They will slide in the page portecters of the new pocket scrapbooking trend.  I don't do a lot of scrapbooking right now so mine could also be used on a card front.  I also wanted to incorporate the Color/ Sketch Challenge that is going on too. The first photo will show the Color/Sketch cards and the second will show my project. Thanks for dropping by, Sentimentally Sue.
