MIM, is with Stephanie Gold, one of PTI's new designers.
She expertly shows us a striking technique of creating
window chipboard sentiments.
I did my 'Hello' with some pattern card stock I had,
glued it to a black foam board,
and die cut my window.
So nice to use Ruby Rose, hadn't inked that set in a while.
Did a bit of masking to add leaves and bottom posie.
Inside the card
The card and matching envelope.
I've been doing envelopes from PTI's matching pattern card stock,
and loving how they turn out! A bit sturdier than regular envelopes,
and that way hide the bumps and bling on the cards.
edited to add: the envelope was created by a punch board tool
by We R Memory Keepers. Here's the link on Amazon.
It's a real 'must have' if you like making your own!
Pattern cardstock on the top of the sentiment? That's brilliant, Nancy!ReplyDelete
Fabulous card...love your pretty flowers.ReplyDelete
Oh, how pretty!! I haven't watched the video yet, but from what I can tell you nailed this Nancy. Love the colors and the pretty blooms Wonderful card!ReplyDelete
Dang, how clever is that design?! You rocked it, Nancy! I'm pinning your version!! Hugs, DarnellReplyDelete
I haven't seen the video for this yet but your card is amazing as always Nancy! Such a great idea to give Ruby Rose some love. I love it!ReplyDelete
Love this card - Ruby Rose is one of my favorites! Just a tip (not a criticism) because I did the same thing - the large leaf should be stamped with the pointed end in. I (and lots of others were stamping with the point out, but then I noticed that Dawn always (as far as I can tell) stamps with the point in. Makes sense once you look at it, especially since the small ones are that way!ReplyDelete
Love that you chose a patterned paper for the sentiment. This is an absolutely wonderful card!ReplyDelete
Nice technique using the patterned paper and foam! Absolutely love your spring colors as I face another rainy day. Thanks for using an older set too as I look over my "PTI local store". :-)ReplyDelete
What a lovely card. I love the pattern card stock used on the die cut sentiment. It goes so well with the colors of the flowers. Gives me that 60's hippy vibe!ReplyDelete
This is beautiful!!!! Nice job!!! Xo!ReplyDelete
So beautiful Nancy. Love the patterned paper sentiment.ReplyDelete
So pretty, and in such a lovely colour combo. Good tip about the envelopes also - I like that you use the white side out. Not sure I would ever have thought of that! :)ReplyDelete
Love the patterned sentiment!ReplyDelete
Gorgeous card! Absolutely love your patterned sentiment!ReplyDelete
Just beautiful--and the envelope too!ReplyDelete
FABULOUS card Nancy and it looks like we were on the same wavelength as far as making matching envelopes! Love the colors in your card too...so Spring like! And of course your patterned paper die cut is the show stopper...LOVE it!! This card and envelope will surely brighten someone's day...lovely, lovely card my friend!! :0)ReplyDelete
Beautiful card Nancy. Do you use a die for the inside of the envelope or cut it yourself?ReplyDelete
I love matching up the envelope!!
Hi Jennifer, not a die, but a tool by We R Memory Keepers: 1-2-3-Punch. It's a real 'must have'. Cuts and scores envelopes of all sizes, bows and boxes. Think I'll edit my post and mention it.ReplyDelete
Hi , remember me :) lol! Love the top layer of your beautiful layered sentiment die, wow this is stunning! Love,love, love the colors and your gorgeous matching envelope! Im sure big family life is keeping you busy too!ReplyDelete
This card screams Spring to me! Very pretty colors and love seeing the matching envelope. Since I have so much pattern paper now that's one way to use it up!ReplyDelete
Your card is so pretty and that sentiment is Gorgeous!!!!!!!ReplyDelete
The patterned paper HELLO is so unexpected--love your card, Nancy! Looks like it might open & close a lot better than mine--good die choice! Maybe someday I'll make matching envelopes--usually just feel good getting a card made & mailed--haha!ReplyDelete
