Birthday Flowers

Just showcasing a recent card and matching gift bag that I made for a friend at work (she has received these so I know it is safe to share them here as she does read my blog).

This is a close up of the card - I used a masking technique with a post-it note for the background flower image.  I have used SU Crumb Cake ink on SU Crumb Cake Cardstock for a tone on tone effect.  I got the idea for the flower from Debbie Olson's blog - she used the die with felt to make a poinsettia brooch (I did try this but my version was a bit naff so went with a paper version and used it as an embellishment)

I made a co-ordinated  mini gift bag as well for the necklace I bought her.  This time I used SU's Old Olive ink for the background flower image as I wanted it to stand out more as I only stamped the image once (which I accented with Stickles Patina - I LOVE STICKLES and own nearly all of the colours).

Cardstock/Paper: SU Crumb Cake, SU Very Vanilla, PTI 2009 Bitty Dot Basics Patterned Paper,
Stamps: PTI Text Style II, PTI Backgound Basics: Botanicals, WMS Frame It
Ink: SU Crumb Cake, SU Old Olive, Momento Tuxedo Black
Tools & Accessories: PTI Signature Series Flower Die, PTI Favour It #3 Die, PTI Simply Chartreuse Swiss Dot Satin Ribbon, PTI Vintage Button Ripe Avocado, The Ribbon Girl Button Twine Jute Natural, Stickles Patina, SU Stampin Dimensionals

That's it - a quick post for me (makes a change!)

A la prochaine! Amitiés

PTI Anniversary - Tag Challenge

Bonjour/Good Morning!

Just a quick post to enter into PTI's anniversary challenge - to use one (or more) of the free download tags in a project.  They were all gorgeous, but one of them called "my name" - the cute tag designed by Heather Nichols.

As I have been really busy on Sunday, didn't have much time so this is what I managed to rustle together before going to work to meet the deadline (thank goodness for the 5 hour time difference between the UK and US EST which made this possible!)

Cardstock/Paper: PTI Hibiscus Burst, SU Whisper White, SU Old Olive,
Stamps: PTI Simple Sentiments, PTI Turning a New Leaf
Ink: Momento Tuxedo Black, Versamark Dazzle
Tools/Accessories: SU Circle Punch, PTI Limitless Layers, Signo White Gel Pen from SU, SU Stampin Dimensionals

A la prochaine! Amitiés
