Sister-in-laws :)

I am so stinking excited to particiapte in Dawn's Raspberry Suite challenge again. She is such a sweetie and has be best color combos ever. I am never this bold, but she has pushed me to try new things and usually I LOVE IT!!!! I have only missed one due to vacation and next time I am bringing more supplies so I can get the card done even then. Here is her latest color combo.
Here is my creation
Didn't that turn out fun? I must admit when PTI came out with Scarlet Jewel a few months ago I didn't get the ink or paper just the buttons and some ribbon. Big mistake! I thought I never use Bravo Burgandy from SU and I have tons of that, so I will just make it work. Not again. A girl can have tons of colors right LOL!
Anyway I adore the scarlet jewel buttons and really like how it worked with the women of life stamp set. I don't use that nearly enough, so it was fun to break that out and get it inky. It worked really well with the card I needed to make for my Sister-in-law Giana. Her birthday isn't until September, but I really like to work ahead.
It's a good life!

Are you sure Cranberry Crisp is a PTI color? I went to their store site but couldn't find it. Thought I'd missed a new color from them.

Dana Grothaus said...

Very pretty card, I love that set and can't wait to get mine and my PTI order!

Kristina said...

Oh, I love the polka dot stripes you made! So fun! And what a great use of that set. I haven't inked that one up too frequently, but I think you may have inspired me to dust it off a little. :)

This is such a fabulous card!!! I love colored polka dots. Brilliant!!

Laurel said...

Love the card, specifically the polka dots. How did you manage to use the all the different colors on the one stamp? I WISH I could tie a bow like you. I worked on trying for 30 minutes this morning for my card and just gave up. I guess I am lucky I can tie my shoelaces!

hollie said...

All I can say is your card is gorgeous! I love how you use your buttons! Also, Thanks for stopping by my blog!

Jenna said...

Fantastic!! This is absolutely fab!! I love how you used the colors. I don't use Bravo Burgandy much either. I really like that color Scarlet Jewel from PTI. I have just recently discovered them...I really love their style and the quality is great!! Anyway, I love your blog and will be back often:)

I really like the polka dots, and that with the white card base, the colours really pop.

Sue Lelli said...

You must LOVE your sister-in-law a bunch to make such a stunning card for her! I think this is my favorite card I've seen from you for all of the color challenges I've seen your cards posted on. REALLY nice!

Heidi said...

Such a stunning card! Ilove everything about it. You're making me want the Women of Life set!! LOL

Marge said...

Wonderful card, Terri; love that PTI set & another (sigh) one I wish I owned - some day?!!! LOL! I guess I put others ahead since I don't have sisters & my Mom is gone now. There's always that issue of having to "decide" which set(s) to purchase; I just hate that!!! ;-(

Melanie said...

Beautiful card! Women of Life is one PTI set I don't own...I may need to rethink that decision!! Great job working in all the colors on the polka dots.

Elise said...

Wow! Terri! Let me just say.. "WOW!" Dawn definitely PUSHES you towards some STAMPY EXCELLENCE! This card is FABULOUS! Great job, you crafty-crafter! Totally worth the push!

tg said...

WOW, this is beyond stunning.

Karen said...

Terri, for not usually using these colors you made them SING!!! Oh goodness, I think this is the best I have ever seen Women of Life look!!!! Really gorgeous...the whole thing. Thanks for the review on Scarlet Jewel. I haven't bought it yet, but its nice to know its really appreciated by someone who does not naturally gravitate towards the color! :>
