Hi everyone!

Had a few Valentine's leftover.  This one started with a scrap piece of Washi tape I punched some hearts out of.  I taped it to white cardstock and inked with bright pink ink.  Peeled off the tape and voila!  Word stamps are from WPlus9.  Also used mini staples and more Washi tape.

For today's second card I used a dark blue card base smudged with white ink on the edges.  Added some hearts made with my new stamps and dies from Stampin' Up.  I love that twine.

Papertret Ink Color Challenge

Hello everyone!

Made this quick card with a Papertrey Ink die and stamp set.  Have a good evening.  from Martha

Check out today's challenge for interesting color combos.

Hello everyone!

We are having a good old-fashioned blizzard today. No school. Roads are impassable. We have cabin fever. Perfect conditions for stamping.

Today's card was made with stamps and dies from Stampin up .  The sentiment is from W plus 9.

This next beauty was made completely with Stampin up products.  My friend Grace found a similar layout on Pinterest that we lifted.  I really like the way this turned out. I love the cloud paper, the texture plate, the small details on the banners. I used an old Stampin up set to make the greeting. I like it.

Have a great day.  From Martha

PS:  slowly improving with Dragon speak . this will really make my life easier.  I don't know where the capitals went .

Hello everyone! We are having a blizzard here today.. So it was perfect day to work on the papertrey Ink challenge. Sorry about the weird spacing I am working with my Dragon speak again.

I wanted to make a thank you card for today's challenge and this is what I came up with. My nephew will be graduating this spring and would like some cards that are not quote girly unquote .I think the card passes the quote not girly un quote test . Of course I had to throw in a girly scarf for the photograph. LOL.

For this project I used my new paper tray ink set, I believe it is called pattern squares. The sentiment is also a paper tray ink stamp. I used a pen and a spray art tool to spatter the card with gray ink.  A few blue self-adhesive dots and the card was done. I also used a spatter stamp with pale blue ink to stamp the corners to give it more of a grungy feel.

That's all for today. Hope everyone is doing well either weathering the blizzard or digging out from the blizzard .

Hi everyone!

I have a couple of scrappy valentines.  For the first one I used Stampin' Up stamps and dies..  also smeared on white ink.  For the second one I made a template by punching hearts into washi tape.  I stuck this to my card and smeared with pink ink.  Remove the tape and this is what you get.  Stamps are from W Plus Nine.

Have a geeat day!  from Martha

PTI year of flowers post

I made a card for the Papertrey Ink year of flowers  blog hop.  In typical fashion, I completed my project too late link up to the hop.   Oh well, I will post anyway.

I made this with the Gladiolus from my year in flowers mini set.  The greeting is also a papertret ink stamp.  I ran the background craft peace thru my Cuttlebug with a script embossing folder.  First I applied white ink right to the embossing folder and it turned out kind of grungy and cool.  My image is colored with CCopics.  The little tag is from Maya Road.

I think it turned out pretty.

Good evening everyone!

Had a beautiful snowy day today. Spent a little time stamping, got the house cleaned, and had a wonderful lunch with a friend.  Made for a great Saturday.

The greeting is a stamp from Verve. I stamped it onto patterned paper and matted it on Brown card stock . both were cut with spellbinders dies. used a piece of lace with sequins, a die cut turquoise strip, a doily, turquoise rhinestones, and a little blue pom-pom thingy from Maya road. this card was quick and simple one turned out cute.

That's all for now. From Martha
