PTI's MIM and A La Carte

PapertreyInk's Make It Monday challenges and tutorials
are always the best. 
Each week their talented designers bring us something
to learn, post their gorgeous samples, 
AND there's a prize at the end of the week.
Not only all of the above, but I've met the most 
wonderful friends over the years!
The busy holidays brought us some time off, 
and I missed the PTI posts and challenges,
until now!
This week we look back, and pick one of our favorites.
Dawn's Sponged Stamping is a perfect technique for
the new Swan'sational stamps.
Solid color, ombre blended really gives dimension to the swan.

I paired Swan'sational with Coverplate: In the Woods, cut twice, with
SS White, and Amethyst Allure.
All over an ink blended bg.
Hard to see, Wink of Stella on some of the swan. (top photo)
Honestly enjoyed this technique so much, 
did a bunch more swans for a few more cards.

Paired this pinked swan with To Have and to Hold and Inspired: Love.
Noted: A2 dies.
Heart wreath stamped twice, first in versamark with white
then again in Lilac Grace.
And finally, a set of cards with another scripture from
Inspired: Love

Loved how this turned out on the Kraft, so I did a pair.

Always nice to have a few cards on hand to lift someone's spirits.

And so nice to be back in the crafting groove!
