This week on Papertrey Ink, the Make it Monday challenge is all about window screen cards. I had a lot of fun coming up with a couple of them. I don't have a large enough heart die to use, so I used my hexagon die set for the first card I made. I also included a photo of Melissa Phillips beautiful window screen card sample.
I used some washi tape to make the stripes on the scalloped piece. It's hard to see, but the white heart actually has some clear embossing on it in a cross-hatch sort of design...gives it a bit of shine! And the photo corners are made from some glittery yummy paper...again hard to see in the photo.
Papertrey Ink is hosting its monthly blog hop and this month it's all about PINK! I just happen to love the color pink, and my mother-in-law's birthday is in just a few days, so I made a card just for her. Below you can see Papertrey Ink's inspiration photo along with my card.
This week, Ashley Newell is hosting the Make It Monday series over at Papertrey Ink with angled backgrounds as the focus. Today, I celebrated my mother's birthday by picking her up and bringing her to my house for a little one-on-one crafting time. I showed her how to make some really cute Valentine's cards. I had made a few samples last night, and my angled background card was one of them. First of all, here's Ashley's card:
And here's my take on angled backgrounds:
And here are a few of the cards I made as samples for my mother when she was here today and similar cards I made alongside her:
