MIM Finally!!!

It has been forever sense I have entered a card in the PTI MIM challenge.  I have made a bunch, but haven't had time to upload it.  I LOVED the challenge this week.  It was easy to whip this card together with the new zig markers.  I am needing to bust these out and make a few more cards.

It's a good life!

Ellen Hudson stamps in the house!!!

I have been eyeing Julie's stamps made at Elle Hudson.  LOVING the style and quality.  Had to whip up this fun card for the challenge they have going on here.  It is hard to see on this card, by I did add wink of stella to this cutie and it really helped the gems come to life.  I also colored this with the new zig markers that are in the house.  I have a need to bust these out again soon.

It's a good life!

Blog Hop Time

 I am so rusty with blogging, it has been forever!  This was for the PTI blog hop.  It seems that life got in the way of creating.  Not good.  Anyway, I made two seperate cards for this challenge. 

I like the second card myself, more CAS.  What is your favorite?

It's a good life!

My entries


Both are for the PTI MIM challenge.  It was really fun to go through the stash to see what pattern paper we had that worked together.  These look so much better IRL.  One day I will get a light table area fixed up for night photos LOL!

It's a good life!

stamping the night away

 Izzy and I had some much needed girl time in the stamping room.  She hasn't been into entering lately, but tonight she decided to let me take a picture of her and her art.  This is for the PTI MIM challenge on using boarders as anchors.  It is hilarious to me that she knows Betsy's work and now detailed it is.  After we got everything cut out she said is this a Betsy card LOL!
she really liked picking out all of the patterns and putting it together.

It's a good life!

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.

It's a good life!
