Make It Monday #14: Selective Inking

Hope you are a having a wonderful week-end!

This is my contribution to PTI's MIM #14 - selective inking.
My selective inking is on Fillable frame #4 where I have avoided to ink the dots inside the solid frame. I have used Perfect Perls in white to make the frame - it is kind of invisible on the photo - but it is there :)

Can't wait to see what you made for MIM #14!


Cardstock: PTI rustic cream, PTI Kraft
Ink: PTI Hawaiian Shores, PTI Plum Pudding, VersaColor 17 violet, Versamark Waterstamp (for the flowers with Perfect Perls),
Stamp: PTI Dot Spots, PTI Fillable Frame #4, PTI Boxes, Bags & Tags (Flower) and PTI Sentiment from Mixed Messages

Sketch Challenge - A Passion for Papertrey

Hi there!

Today I am sharing a card which I made for the Sketch Challenge over at A Passion for Papertrey.
Feels good to be back in paper crafting - very calming after a very busy day at work!

A Passion for Papertrey have a sketch challenge - you can play a long too, go check it out here :)
The sketch I am using is this one:
and my card ended up like this:

Maybe it needs something more ... but I forced myself to stop putting more stuff on the card.
Usually my boyfriend tells me I put too much "stuff" on a card - what do you like: lots of stuff or less stuff?

This card was kind of simple to make - because I had a lot of paper scraps, and I wanted to use them. I used Perfect Perls "Forever red" for the flowers, I like that powder thingy - makes the flowers a bit more shiny than ordinary ink - unfortunately you cannot see that on the photo.


Cardstock: PTI rustic cream, PTI melon berry, PTI Spring moss
Ink:Versamark Waterstamp (for the flowers with Perfect Perls), Versa Color 69 Bamboo (LOVE THIS COLOR!!!) and Versafine Onyx Black
Stamp: PTI Turning a new leaf, PTI Boxes, Bags & Tags (Flower) and PTI Sentiment from Everyday Button Bits

I'm BACK! Happy Mother's day!

Wow - time flies so fast!! I can't believe it is May 8 already - it feels like spring passed by without even saying hello to me.

I haven't had time to create anything in paper for such a long time and I lost my mojo as well, which makes it double so hard to create anything when time is little.

Anyway - now I am back (HURRAAH) and my desk is full of crafting papers and tags. I always make tags as the first thing after having had a period of no crafting because it makes it possible to get back into the habit and trying something new without making a big effort. Do you know what I mean?

Today is Mother's day and to get started on the card making I decided to make it easy and took inspiration from a card I have seen on the Hero Arts gallery (look here). Once I had colored the flowers I thought they looked so sweet so I skipped the cutting part of making an extra layer.

So with these two cards I am back on the blog! 
Let me know what you think about the cards :) And have a wonderful day!
