PTI MIM

 I can't even express how fabulous the new release was for PTI.  The only sad part is I got sick and wasn't able to play with the goodies nearly as much as I would have liked to. 
 This cutie was done for the MIM challenge this week to use embossing paste and a cover plate as a stencil.  I found this one from stamp a faire and wanted to bust it out again.  I have never done one of these lose bunches of gold floss, but wanted to try.  Love the new vellum and gold sticky backed foil.  Nice!!!
 Now to brag on the littles real quick.  Izzy my artsy genius above got best in show at the art show that means she was the best of her 2nd grade class with this piece of work above.  Love that girl!!!
Cece was happiest when she found this portrait of Queen Elsa. 

It's a good life!

Smile

this is a total Laura CASE.  I took her Craftsy class and loved it!  My biggest take away was to slow down and be okay with throwing things away.  It felt good to have this reminder.  I loved watching her step by step through the whole card without cutting the video to give highlights.  It was great seeing it all the way through and getting the tips as well.

This is for the PTI ombre challenge.

Heavy Metal

 This is another never used card.  Okay I have to admit I was one of the crazies that was in Michaels the day after Christmas.  Izzy and I found these fun sets of card making kits 80% off.  I got a whole ton of premade put together cards (enough for 40).  I was intrigued by the gold and sliver backgrounds.
I added the back accents and the fun gold splatter.  This is for the PTI Heavy Metal neutral and metal cards.

Never Used....

 I am digging all of the talk about uninked stamps and the PTI challenge to use a set that hasn't been inked.  It really has me going though my stash to see what I have that hasn't seen the light of day.  It was really quite insane, hello my name is Terri and I have a purchasing problem LOL!!!
Couple this challenge with the new quilt serries Betsy is coming out with and BAM I knew what I needed to create.  I have never busted out this quilt block and I purposely purchased it for the week that I was working on in my MM scrapbook from last year.  How stinking crazy is that?  I do think I will be done with the summer by the end of the month.  We all need goals LOL!

It's a good life!

Stuck on Maile....

 This is for the PTI use more than one flower from more than one stamp set on a card.  I was digging looking through Maile's blog and found this cutie and gave it a whirl.  I used 4 different flower sets.
It was interesting to find a sentiment that worked with Maile's chopping techinque.  It was really fun to dig through the sets.  I was shocked at how few flower sets I have, CRAZY!!!  In my head there were a lot more in my stash LOL!

It's a good life!

PTI tag and matching bag Izzy style!

 I was so excited to have a chance to head up and do some team stamping with Izzy. 
 We went on a total use the stuff you have kit, I mean serriously the stamping room is full of unloved goodies.  She colored this great cat and we made a fun shaker.  She picked all of the stamps/colors.
Turned out fab and her little friend is going to LOVE it!

It's a good life!

Maile inspired

I really have been super excited about this announcement and getting Maile's CAS design style back in the line up.  Here is her original.  I changed the colors and sentiment, but didn't mess much with perfection.  If you would like to get in on the PTI action, here is the post.  Izzy is still reading LOL!

It's a good life!
