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 my first entry into Dawn McVey's Color Challenge (http://www.dawnmcvey.typepad.com/). I've never used these colors together (especially Berry Sorbet with Pure Poppy red!), so this was a challenge for me!! Here's a list of supplies I've used:
Stamps: PTI Life, Autumn Leaves Fresh Cut by Heather Bailey, PTI Mega Mixed Messages.
Ink: PTI Pure Poppy & Vintage cream, VersaMagic Pixie Dust chalk ink.
Paper: PTI Pure Poppy, Kraft, Vintage Cream and Bazzill Bling paper (don't know the color!).
Other: PTI Berry Sorbet satin ribbon, pearls (from Archivers), oh, I almost forgot I put a little Art Institute glitter on the flower!

I made this card to be enclosed in an Easter parcel I'm sending out to my brother, sister-in-law and nephew in England. I don't have any "Happy Easter" sentiment stamps yet, so just wrote the sentiment inside! This is kind of a combination of a couple of other cards on my blog. These are the supplies I used:
Paper (PTI): Kraft, Ripe avocado, Spring rain, Bitty dots in Spring rain.
Stamps (PTI): Life
Ink (PTI): Ripe avocado, Spring moss, Spring rain.
Other: Spring moss gingham ribbon, Vintage cream button, twine for button, sticky pearls (not sure what make, but I got these from Archivers). I also used Fiskers scallop & butterfly punches.

Heres another really bad photo of a card I've made. Hopefully I'll have some better quality photos soon as we will be getting a new camera (once we've decided on what we want!).
I keep seeing cards made with scrunched up flowers. They look really pretty, so I decided to give it a go.
Supplies used (PTI):
Paper: Kraft cardstock, bitty dots in Spring Moss, Spring Moss cardstock Plum Pudding. Stamps: Paper tray, Retro backgrounds. Ink: Vintage cream, Ripe Advocado. Accent: Vintage cream button.

This is a little card I made for my Mum. It's Mothers Day in England later this month, so decided to try out some new PTI supplies on a card. I find it strange that Mothers Day for America and England are at different times of the year, but Fathers Day is the same date with both?!
I used Spring Moss ribbon, bitty dots paper and ink, also Lavender Moon cardstock, bitty dots and ink, oh, and Dark Choc ink for the sentiment. Of course I used some more pearl sticky things on the retro backround!
