The colors are brown, pink/white, olive..... how much easier and better can you get than that?????
I cut a Basic Grey Lemonade patterned paper and adhered it to Papertrey Ink Ocean Tides cardstock. The sentiment is a stamp from Papertrey Inks "Out On A Limb Sentiment". Stamped with Memento Black Ink and used PTI Lemon Tart around the edges. The Copic Markers I used on this card are E31, E35, E37, Y11, Y13, & RV10.

I have found some others cards that I made but didn’t post and then also want to show you a card I made for daughter and her family. My daughter & husband raise Pugs and when I saw this stamp from Mo’s Digital Pencil shop I had to have it and make this for them for Valentine’s Day….
I colored with my Copic Markers and used some patterned paper I had in my stash. I made a 6X6 card so they could stand it up and keep it if they want.
The next cards are some that I just made to have on hand. I have not posted them so thought I would share today.
I hope you enjoy these as much as I did creating them.

Just released today !!!!!Aren’t these the cutest Bear Stamps? This stamp set is by M&M Designz. They are on sale today at her shop at Digital-Ink Co. This bear is the cutest and so versatile. I colored the bears with my Copics and then cute them out adhered them to each side of the box with dimensionals. You can get this set at Digital-Ink Co. for $5.00 or can get them individually for only $2.00. Digital-Ink Co has a great weekly newsletter that shows all the new releases for the week from Digital-Ink Co’s 7 stamp creators. And that is not all ! When you get the newsletter in your mail box you get a free stamp for the week. Also, the newsletter highlights a blog from their followers each week. So if you are a follower you might get “spotted” and not only your blog gets highlighted in the newsletter but you get the “grandest” banner for your blog. So everyone what are you waiting for go here and get singed up !!!!!
This cute box was SOOOOOOOO easy to make with my friends Leigh Ann’s Perfect Presentation Template called The CUBE. Her templates are for sale here and come in different type of files for all the different die cutting machine. Here is how I did it: I used the 1 page of cardstock size. With the SCAL software and my Cricut Expression I cut the SVG template. The score lines have little tick places to tell you where to score and then was “easy peasy” to put together. I used 1/4 score tape to the bottom flaps to hold it together. I cut 4 different but complimentary patterned papers for each side and then on the top stacked 3 buttons and glued a white string wrapped around a small button on the front. I love how it looks and just perfect for a block to display in baby’s room. Or you could used for a small shower gift box.

The challenge on PTI today is to make a card using any embossing resist technique. I love this techniques and have used it often. I thought today though that I would make a simple birthday card with the bird stamp. It had a lot of negative space to show the yellow text that I stamped on the SU Confetti Cardstock. then i heat embossed the bird with clear embossing powder and then rubbed Ranger Blue Jean Distress Ink all over the area. I cut the bird out with my deckle rectangle spellbinder die. I cut another piece of Designer Paper from my scraps with the next size up die. I adhered a piece if SU Barely Banana CS to the card base of SU Navy CS. The bird is adhered with dimensionals. I stamped happy birthday in Almost Navy SU Ink and a navy blue button tied with twine.
Papertrey Ink is celebrating their 3rd birthday and have lots of wonderful challenges going on with wonderful prizes. I would love to win any of their prizes.
