Make it Monday #10

This week's Make it Monday challenge is Masking with Dies. I used my PTI dress form die to make a mask and then sponged pink ink over the mask onto my die cut button card. Then, with my mask still in place, I stamped my gingham background stamp over the dress form. My mask was a little too thick and didn't allow the gingham to stamp off completely, but I like how it turned out and the look it gives the dress form! I then added various elements from Button Boutique to finish off the button card. The buttons and fabric swatches are also cut with my PTI button card dies. Last, I finished off the card with some Stampin Up patterned paper and Hibiscus Burst ribbon. Thanks for stopping by!

Lawnscaping Challenge #7

This week's challenge is a fun one! Challenge #7 is to make you own patterned paper using stamps. I knew what I wanted to do as soon as I read the challenge...It just took me a week to get around to actually doing it!

I used images from Plus One, Bannerific and Cozy Christmas for my card. Chocolate chip cookies are my favorite so I used the plate of cookies, the glass of milk and a heart to create my patterned paper. For my focal piece, I stamped the oven and then cut it out (including the oven window). I stamped the plate of cookies on a piece of cardstock and then used dimensional adhesive to adhere my oven over the cookies. I added a few hearts above the oven and my sentiment banner beneath. I love how the main panel turned out. I will be using those cookies in the oven again! Thanks for stopping by!
