Papertrey Ink May BLOG HOP Challenge

So, here it is again. May 25th, time for the PTI BLOG HOP.

Here is the inspiration photo:

Blog Hop Inspiration

It's a beauty, don't you think?
So, I began with Turning a new Leaf stamps and didn't like the outcome.

Ended up switching to a Simon Says Stamp Background stamp.  I did some ink
smooshing(with various distress inks) and spritzing with water and then stamping my background.
I do like the final outcome but after all that I ended up with just PTI Hawaiian Shores CS, so that's my one PTI product! I even tried a PTI sympathy stamp that ended up too big for the doily!

Here it is:

I am finally getting around to post this today. It has been a crazy week. I mainly wanted to participate in Make It Monday this week with Dawn. It was all about Patterns Behind Die-Cut Windows. I wanted to also use a stencil to fulfill another challenge over at AAA Cards.
  I began inking up my paper through a dotted stencil to make my pattern of dots and decided it would be cute to stamp little faces on some of them from Lawn Fawn's Love You Smore.  I then die cut my flower/sentiment window with Enclosed Flower from PTI in CS and Smokey Shadow Patterned Paper. Layered my cuts and adhered everything together after adding a bit of ribbon.

Hope you all like it. Hope everyone has a great week!

Another Make It Monday with all the girls over at Papertrey Ink. It's Lexi's turn this week and I've always loved her clean and simple style. She inspires me so!

It's time for Make It Monday with Ashley this week as she gives us some tips on making curved sentiments out of straight sentiment stamps.

I really wanted to use the Enclosed Butterfly die because I had not broken it in yet.
I also wanted to put a little organic stitching in the background so I used my rotary cutter.
Sorry for the poor picture quality, the sun is long gone!

 I am also entering this into the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge:
Things with Wings. Also the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: Anything Goes.

SUPPLIES: Papertrey Ink CS, Enclosed Butterfly Die,
 Birthday Classics:Feb and April Stamps.
Distress Ink and rotary cutter.

Thanks for stopping by today!

Papertrey Ink March blog Hop Challenge

It's the 25th everybody!!
 I think we all know what that means! 

The Papertrey Ink Blog Hop is today!

Here is the gorgeous inspiration photo below:

I broke out some of my new releases and went to work. 
 I had to use the new wood grain stencil, 
among a couple of the new stamp sets.

So, here is what I created:

If anyone has any tips on cleaning the metal stencil, 
let me know. I immediately put it in water
when I was finished with it but it seemed to still have a film of embossing paste on it. I even used a mild soap. Ended up scraping it off with my fingernails!  Anyway, thanks for stopping by today!!

Supplies: Metal wood grain stencil, Courage and Kindness Stamp Set, Cutaway Tags: Spring 
Stamp Set, Floral Sketches Stamp Set, PTI CS and Inks, Embossing paste, Pretty Pink Posh
Scalloped Oval Frame. 

  That's about all. I am off to help with a
 working day at our church. 
Pulling up carpet or something along those lines.

 I hope to be back later to hop along and see 
what everyone else created for today!
