Make it Monday #157 -DIY Cover Plates

Betsy, at Papertrey Ink, has inspired us to use our dies to make our own Cover Plate-type design. I used Sketched Shapes, stamps and dies, to make this card, thinking I was going to go for a masculine card. I used an embossing folder (Lifestyle Crafts) to add to the texture, and some striped Spring Rain patterned paper cut with a chevron die to add some interest at the bottom. The triangle with the sentiment on it is popped up on adhesive squares.

Thanks for looking!

PTI March 2014 Blog Hop

High Gloss

This blog hop is all about gloss and shine, so I broke out my stencil (made from cutting acetate with my Diagonal Stripes Coverplate), and my embossing paste. I used my Dreamweavers Pearlescent paste on white cardstock, then added some flowers from Garden Grace. I added some Glossy Accents onto the centers of the flowers, and some shiny Moonstone sequins for that "extra something".

Here is a close up of the shine.

All materials are PTI, other than the embossing paste. Thanks for looking!

Make it Monday #156: 3-D Paint

Well, I finally inked up City Scene/Sentiments. I used Folk Art Acrylic craft paint to roughly (on purpose) stencil in the background. (Can't say I'm overly happy with how it turned out, but went with it, anyway.) I made a stencil using the diagonal stripes Cover Die, and cut a piece of acetate, so now I have a permanent stencil ;)
My husband is British, so I made this card for him. (IF I keep it, that is... I think I'll have to get the vertical and/or horizontal cover plates, too, as I'm not too much of a diagonal-scene-sort-of-person.)
All materials, except the white paint, are PTI. Thanks for looking!
