PTI February Blog Hop!

Time for the PTI monthly blog hop! This months challenge was to make an interactive card. I received my Feb. PTI order just in time to use one of their new Movers & Shakers dies to make a zipper card. When you pull on the zipper it rips off and reveals the rest of the sentiment underneath. Very fun!

Since I did have my PTI order, I decided to also use some great new stamp sets. For the sentiments and arrows I used the Movers and Shakers sentiments set. Such a great set to use on anything- with or without using the new dies. There are lots of really great sentiments. The small sentiment under the zipper strip says "I am even more grateful for you".

I used the smaller floral image with versamark stamped on the green, from the new Anniversary set "Pretty Peonies". While stamping that, I just used a couple post it notes to mask the zipper, first stamping above, than below it.

I also used the solid large flower, outline and leaves on the main panel.
The background was done using the new Background Basics: Medallions. I really love this set. The stamp strips for this large pattern are HUGE which makes it really easy and quick to do the whole background!
Thanks for stopping by, enjoy the hop!

Hugs- Kelly

TE Sketch Challenge #152

Just in time! I'm quick putting up my entry for the #152 sketch! I used an older TE KOTM for all the papers/button as well as a cute TE stamp set (The Places You'll Go)!
Perfect set to make a thank you card for an author who came to speak at our elementary school! I just love all the great children's book quotes!

Sorry for the crummy pic, but it's late, dark and taken with my phone :)
Hugs- Kelly

PTI day 10 Challenge!

Today the PTI team showed all the fun new Mover and Shaker dies! Great dies to make interactive cards even funner and easier! Because of that, today's challenge is to make an interactive card.
It is Valentine's Day, so I had to make one more valentine! I made a viewfinder card using the Tiny Treats: Valentine set.
