MIM background stamping

This is one of my favorite techniques and I was happy to see Heather use it.    I am trying to use up the scraps here at my house so this "book paper" was lying there and I love the fruit fusion stamps so here is the apple as a background paper.

It's Day One of Pattern Play Online Class

I started up the first class from Online Card Classes Pattern play.   I have taken a college class here and there online but this one was a lot more fun.   Today I made two cards and here is the first one.   It was to use 3 different pieces of pattern paper.  I decided to take some of the paper that really have challenged me and here it is.

It's a two for two Saturday

I am loving the cloudy day today except when I pulled out the camera.   ARHHHHHG.   I am so spoiled living in the Valley of the Sun when it comes to photos.   Anyway these are not the greatest of photos but the cards for challenges are done and I want them to go up.  First up is the PTI MIM challenge.  This challenge is to stamp something in "two colors" ink.   I was not suprised to see so many of the gals pull out this "funky flowers" set from PTI as  the stamp just seemed like a natural in doing this technique.   I used Lavender Moon and Melon Berry ink along with some Winter Wisteria paper also PTI product.

Next up is the Play Date Cafe with their weekly color challenge.   I am so happy to have found this place as I love color challenges and this one really made me think outside the box.   Just a simple card that I plan to put to use tomorrow or Monday just because I can.   The colors to be used are Spring Bud, Azure, and Hollyhock.   The stamped image is a PTI image and die.   The seam binding is from my shop of course.

The Play Date Cafe my first

I happened upon the Play Date Cafe Blog to find myself another color challenge and fell in love with the colors.   A fun, NO PRESSURE blog.   I think I will be over there more.   This weeks challenge Apricot, Mint, and Tangerine.   Here is my take using October Afternoon's Cakewalk and twine from my shop.

It's PTI and more PTI for the MIM

Had some chevron fun with some glitter.   This little card was started ages ago.   Well the base that is.  I was going to play with the Hawaiian Shores pattern paper at the anniversary challenges and just didn't so the base has been sitting there.   I glittered up the yellowy peach chevron and then I knew I needed more.   Stamped my favorite PTI Happy Birthday stamp and I have a quick card.   Enjoyed the MIM challenge this week.  Thanks Dawn!
