Dawn McVey's color challenge this week was to use the colors: Raspberry, Cream, Scarlet and Purple. The last time I tried to do the challenge I ended making a card using completely different colors to those in the challenge. I guess the good thing is I made a card, just couldn't enter into the challenge! This time I've actually made a card sticking to the challenge colors!
Supplies used (all PTI unless stated):
Stamps: Everyday button bits
Ink: Raspberry Fizz, Plum Pudding, Scarlet Jewel
Paper: Rustic Cream, Bitty box basics
Other: Plum Pudding ribbon, Hibiscus Burst buttons, adhesive pearls, Fiskers punch

Yayyyy, I'm so happy, I passed my American driving test today. Even though I have an English licence I still had to do the full test again (written and driving) to be able to drive over here. I was sooooo nervous, I felt like a teenager again! I've been putting off doing the test for a long time, so its a bit of weight off my shoulders.
Anyway, just had to share that!
Onto the blog hop. This month's PTI blog hop challenge was to create a card using text somehow in the design (I guess not counting the sentiment). Although I wasn't very adventurous using the text background under the button flowers, I like the end result.
Supplies used (PTI unless stated):
Stamps: Button bits
Ink: Dark chocolate, Ripe avocado, Hibiscus burst, Summer sunrise
Paper: Aqua mist bitty dots, Lemon tart bitty box, Stampers select white
Buttons: Hibiscus burst, Vintage cream
Ribbon: Lemon tart polka dot, Cream twine, Martha stewart bakers twine
Punches: EK success edge punch
Thanks for taking a look & Happy Hopping!

This is the card I made for PTI's latest Blog Hop Challenge (to include the color Yellow in a card/project). I really enjoyed making this card as I got to use all of my new supplies from PTI! I also used my non-existent stitching skills for the first time on a card (kind of difficult to see, but its either side of the Aqua Mist ribbon). I'm actually pleased with how it turned out!
These are the supplies:
Stamps: Bird watching, Text style
Ink: Lemon tart, Hibiscus burst, Dark chocolate, PTI's tea dye set
Paper: Aqua mist, Kraft, Rustic cream
Other: Aqua mist ribbon, Cream twine, EK Success punch,

This is the card I made using Michelle Wooderson's (PTI) picture and card as inspiration. I loved the look of stamping images onto the bitty dot paper Michelle used on her card, so I decided to give it ago myself, whilst trying to use colors from the Spring picture.
All supplies I used are PTI apart from a Martha Stewart punch (from Michaels) for the bottom of the Spring Moss paper. The stamps I used for the top half are all from the Green Thumb set and the little flowers on the bottom half are from the Life set. Oh and the sentiment is from Mega Mixed messages. Almost forgot, the papers I used are Bitty dot spring moss and Bitty dot Lemon tart from PTI.

I used Lauren's template, Perfect Match Box, to make this. My parents will be visiting in a few weeks time, so I'm going to fill this little box with some chocolates and leave it on my Mum's bedside table in our guest bedroom!
I used the following supplies to decorate the box (I apologize in advance for any wrong names/spellings, my little one has been a monkey all day, not to mention the husband, I'm just pooped!):
Paper: PTI white cardstock.
Inks: Summer Sunrise, Hibiscus Burst, Ripe avocado, Spring Moss.
Stamps: Green Thumb
Ribbon: Hibiscus Burst bitty dot, Martha Stewart bakers twine.
Other: Martha Stewart punch, Ranger clear embossing powder.
I'm looking forward to seeing everyone else's creations. Happy Blogging!
