Make It Monday - Brighter Days

Good morning - another Monday - another Make it Monday at Papertrey Ink!  I love how these techniques encourage you to at least try to do something different. I love to just stamp - stamp. stamp. stamp....but once in awhile branching out is a good thing.

This week we went back to Paper Weaving - I remember making placemats - many moon ago - in elementary school. I'm sure my mom still has them somewhere ;)

I used various Papertrey Ink patterned papers, cut into strips and just started weaving.  I decided it would be best used as a I paired it up with Tag Sale #10.

I had already coloured and die cut one of the roses from Year of Flowers Collection, so I popped it up onto the die.  The sentiment is from Healing Touch Sentiments - I love this font!

I used a few little rainstones and sequins for an embellishment!

CASE Study and Time Out Challenge

I decided to jump in and do the CASE Study challenge this week. I have had the Vegetable Garden set forever, and wanted to use it for a fall themed I made tags hah - which also follows along with the Time Out Challenge - woohoo!

The CASE Study inspiration was so cool and a match for this stamp I made some tags with tomatoes on them....sounds simple.- of course it took me forever !

I used Hero Arts Pale Tomato ink on my tomato stamp and rock and rolled it with PTI Pure Poppy ink.  I double cut the Tag Sale #5 using PTI white cardstock and part of a box - yeppers - I did that..

  I designed a small linen bag also - and added some tomatoes inside (real ones) - I'll take those to my mom if she needs them.  I stamped the bag with the A Little Argyle Background Stamp in Simply Chartreuse ink and then added a few Pure Poppy dots - scattered around.

Join up in the Challenges - they are fun to do!!

Best. Day. Ever.

The Fusion Challenge is kind of a different can choose to be inspired by the photo OR the sketch OR both....  Choices?? ack!!

I love the shiny pink - naturally, and I love the sketch, so I chose to do both.  Although I sortofkindof left off a panel - sort of.....but oh well....

I really like this $5 mini stamp "Cat's Meow" from Papertrey Ink. Easy to stamp. Easy to colour. Easy to diecut.  And don't even get me started on those cute little yarn balls......yummers....

The patterned paper is from Papertrey Ink's Soft Stone Patterned Pack.....another favourite.

I stamped the sentiment - from Bigger Blooms directly onto the patterned paper - I can just imagine this little kitty and the mischief he gets into - and enjoying it immensely!!

See you later, gator!
