SAF 2015: Unconventional Materials Challenge

Hi! I’m here with a card for SAF 2015. This card is for the unconventional materials challenge. I’ll bet you won’t be able to guess what I used!

Can you guess?

Here’s a closer look.IMG_0916editedOkay, so while you ponder this for a moment I’ll tell you which PTI supplies I used on this card.  I used stamps from the Bloomers Set, Center Style: Masculine Mini Stamp Set and A Cheerful Heart Stamp Set. The patterned paper is from the Wee Folk Mini Market Kit.

Alright, here’s another clue:  IMG_0920editedDid you guess guitars strings?!  IMG_0915editedI set these aside a while back when my husband got new ones, thinking they might turn into something crafty. So! I didn’t spend a lick on these. 🙂

Thanks for stopping by!

Die Cut Kissing Recycle -Lots of Tickets

Hi! My kids and I are headed out to the train station to get on a 4 o’clock train to meet my husband; we need to get our tickets to Vaihingen. He’s picking us up and then we’re going to see the movie “War Room”. We’ll need to pick up our tickets for the 6 o’clock showing of the movie too! I’m really looking forward to it. Lots of tickets in this post.

This post is a bit different because I’m not really sharing a card in it. Today, I have a ticket bookmark and a ticket tag to share with you.

This week Betsy, over at PTI’s MIM, used a stamp kissing technique but changed it up a bit by using a stamp and a die cut instead of two stamps. I had This technique was fun and I think I’ll be trying it again very soon. Here’s the post with the card I made for MIM.

 I did a test run with the 2 PTI products I wanted to use, the Bloomers stamp set, and the Heart cover Plate die.

The process……

Here’s the inked up die cut which I recycled for the bookmark and tag.

I stamped the front side with “Many Blessings” from PTI’S Scripted Stamp Set. I also decorated the back of the tag and made a space to write on. I made my own tickets but using a circle punch to chomp off the corners of the tickets and then I drew the lines on free-hand.

I added some Glossy Accents to the heart negatives on the bookmark. The sentiment is from PTI’s Bibliophile stamp set.

Make It Monday #222: Die Cut Kissing

Here I am with another MIM post. 🙂 This week Betsy used an old stamp kissing technique but changed it up a bit by using a stamp and a die cut instead of two stamps. Honestly, stamp kissing is a very new technique to me. But then, I’m a newbie at stamping.  I started this wonderful adventure with my friend, Cindy, just a short 2 1/2 years ago! This technique was fun and I think I’ll be trying it again very soon!

IMG_0610editedFirst, I did a test run with the 2 PTI products I wanted to use, the Bloomers stamp set, and the Heart cover Plate die.  The birthday sentiment is from the Bloomers stamp set too.

IMG_0599editedIMG_0601edited

The process……

IMG_0597edited

I trimmed the stamped panel down and had some pretty strips left.

IMG_0598edited

I couldn’t bare to toss them out, so I used them to decorate the inside……..

IMG_0619edited

which is very unusual for me. I’m very happy with how it turned out.

IMG_0605edited I stamped the inside with “Many Blessings” from PTI’S Scripted Stamp Set. Besides playing this over at PTI’s MIM #221, I’d also like to play this over at WAW’s Challenge #198 – Anything Goes

SSS Wednesday’s Simon Says Anything Goes.
