Easter card

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.

PTI March Blog Hop Challenge

This is my first PTI blog hop challenge! I'm looking forward to getting lots of inspiration from other bloggers using PTI products.
I love the images on the Friends til the End set, so I used the smaller flower for the background on this card. Its really easy to make an impressive looking card with this set (good for beginners like me!).
These are the supplies I used for the above card (all PTI):
Paper: Vintage cream, True black & Raspberry Fizz.
Stamps: Friends til the End & Retro background.
Ink: True black & Raspberry fizz.
Other: Vintage cream buttons & True black polka dot ribbon.
Happy blogging!

Scrunched flowers

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.

Experimenting with PTI Friends til the End

I love the flower images on the PTI Friend's til the End stamp set, so was just experimenting with this card. Can't really see the detail on this photo (camera is awful!), I punched holes around the middle of each flower (as I did on my previous card posted). I used supplies from the PTI quick kit, kraft card and co-ordinating bitty dots paper.

Wedding flowers

This is my little daughter Alyssa, isn't she beautiful?! This is a picture of Alyssa holding her 'wedding flowers!' She told myself and hubby yesterday that she wants to get married to Wallace (Wallace & Gromit, a childrens animation) and she needed some wedding flowers. So Myron suggested that she pick herself some flowers at Publix. She spent most of the evening proudly holding onto her flowers! For your information, a couple of weeks ago she wanted to marry Woody from Toystory!

(English) Mother's Day card!

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!
