so grateful...

Hello friends!!   Spent part of my New Years Eve making a little card for the current PTI Make It Monday:  Angled Backgrounds.   I don't think I have made a card quite as busy or bright as this one in a very long time and it made me a bit nervous putting it together.  However, once it was done I was really pleased with how it turned out.


After I decided on what patterned paper to use (Webster's Pages Family Traditions line... LOVE!!) I had to figure out what stamps to use and finally settled on my very neglected PTI Lovely Layers set.  I had inked up one of the stamps, but I don't think I have ever made anything with the set!   I die cut all the images and then stamped them using Hero Arts chalk inks (Poppy, Punch. Splash and Latte) and Memento inks (Pear Tart).   I cut strips of the patterned papers and then adhered them to a cardstock base.  As a base for my floral image I die cut some white cardstock using the PTI notebook die.  After arranging all the pieces, but not adhering them, I stamped the sentiment in black ink.  Once that was done I adhered all the pieces into place and then added the finished piece to the patterned paper piece.   My angled background is a bit hap hazard, but I like it!

Thanks for stopping by...

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI white; Patterned Paper:  Webster's Pages; Inks: Hero Arts & Memento; Stamps:  PTI; Dies:  PTI
