MIM #226: Creating With Stripes

Creating with Stripes is our challenge with Laurie 
this week at Make It Monday.
I love all kinds of stripes, so this was especially fun to 
see what could be used to create a card with stripes.
The Herringbone stamp reminded me of diagonal stripes,
so that is my stripe background.
More stripes with the cover plate.

Paper Sweeties October 2015 Inspiration Challenge

October 1st marks the start of a new challenge at Paper Sweeties!
Just look at our inspiration...

Fall, Vintage, lace, pumpkin, what inspires you?
Can't wait to see what you come up with.

I did a card with one of Paper Sweeties' dolls, Sophie.

Lots of PS stamp sets, and some paper piecing, and some lace on her poncho.
Just had to add some PS sequins, to look like leaves falling to the ground.
One more little item before I let you go, the pumpkins from Sweeties Wagon are not 
finished on the bottom, so I 'finished' them after stamping, with a black marker,
then fussy cut them.

Happy Fall Ya'll!
Don't forget to visit each designer for more inspiration, 
and a big welcome and congratulations to out Guest Designer this month,
Lisa Bsibziak


This week's MIM has Ashley showing us how to make 
boxes out of dies.
Wonderful sweet treats and decorations for the upcoming holidays!

Ashley's shaker used the candy corn die,
mine is with the Shaker Shapes: Pumpkin
The spine on the box was scored several times so it would rock slightly,
allowing the contents to shake up a bit.

Easy to do, hope to make several for the grandkids! 

All PTI: Mr. Bones, Happy Spooky Halloween, Shaker Shapes: Pumpkin
Cardstocks: Rustic White, Orange Zest, Orange Zest Designer Pack,
Classic Kraft, Royal Velvet, Limeaid Ice, Summer Sunrise, 
Lemon Tart, True Black
Inks: True Black, Summer Sunrise
White Embossing Powder

Thank You

The challenge at ColourQ features this bed set with 
delightfully bohemian colors and design.

Immediately thought of a favorite set from Waltzingmouse.

I played with colors and ink combos until I got this one,
which I liked.
WM: Folk Art Medallion, Pinstripe Background
PTI Inks: Soft Stone, Limeaid Ice, Orange Zest
Hero Arts: Wet Cement Ink
Embossing Powder: WOW! Skyline Grey Puff

Getting in under the wire!

Autumn Blessings

So excited to be playing along with the Coffee Lovers Fall Blog Hop!

Paper Sweeties is one of the sponsors,
and the prizes are amazing!

Hop on over to see the list of sponsors and all 
that's up for the win!

My card is made with the stamp and die set PS is giving away to one of the winners,
Homemade With Love. It's a Christmas set, complete with dies to match.
I changed up the look by cutting off the holly, and adding pumpkins
and sunflower, and using fall colors.
Very easy to use any time of year! 

Hope to see you in the lineup.
It runs through Oct. 2nd.
