PTI February 2015 Blog Hop Challenge

I am sharing a card I created that inspired the card I entered on the Make it Monday challenge over at Nichole Heady|PTI blog.

How can that be? you might ask.  Well PTI has been sharing the challenge for their upcoming blog hop challenge which is usually on the 25th of the month. They post the inspiration picture and details for the hop challenge right after their release on the 15th of each month.  The 15th this month happened to fall on a Sunday so I was able to see the inspiration picture for the hop challenge and the Make It Monday challenge both on Monday.

This time (or the first time since the Make It Monday card came after :) )  I used the template I created with the Quatrefoil die and white embossing paste.  I had to think a bit to see how I would proceed and then it came quickly as soon as I saw my Dyan Reaveley ink sprays in London blue and crushed grape.
I added gold shimmer with Inka-Gold beeswax and some gold ribbon and the word die cut using glitter gold paper.

Supplies Used:
PTI Cover Plate: Quatrefoil Die
PTI Wet Paint Cuts die 
PTI Stamper's Select white
Dreamweaver embossing paste
Inka-Gold beeswax
Dyan Reavely ink sprays

Make It Monday #201: Cover Plate Stencils and Embossing Paste

I created this card to enter the
Make It Monday #201: Cover Plate Stencils and Embossing Paste
challenge over at Nichole Heady|PTI a few days ago and I almost forgot to post it.

I chose the Cover Plate: Quatrefoil die

My first attempt at creating the template did not work because I was trying to recycle a piece of acetate that was a bit thick and I only passed it once through my Big Shot.  Second try I used a much thinner material and I did pass it through my Big Shot a couple of times.

Supplies Used:
PTI Baker's Dozen die
PTI Baker's Dozen Stamp Set
PTI Cover Plate: Quatrefoil die
PTI Wet Paint Cuts die
PTI Paper in Terracota Tile & Aqua Mist
Dreamweaver embossing paste
Acetate sheets from my local Michael's
