Petite Places and an Easter Wreath

 
 
I had a little time to craft over the past few days and finished a project I had planned for Easter. I used Papertrey Inks Tinsel and Tags set together with Petite places church die and Petite places sweet shoppe die and co-ordinating stamp set. Betsy Veldman, a very talented designer at Papertrey Ink has created these amazing die cuts and stamp sets. I am a great fan of her work and get great inspiration from her blog.
 
I did not have all my craft supplies with me as we were not in Dublin so I had to make do with what I had. A polystyrene wreath, some netting for the base, a few die cuts and of course sequins for a little sparkle. Out little country home was the perfect setting to show off my Easter wreath. I  just had to pull the bike out of the shed to complete the setting !

Make it Monday

 
 
 
 
With a little time this weekend to craft, I caught up with Papertrey Ink's series of  'Make it Monday'. They are a great collection of videos, one posted each Monday morning inviting the viewers to try out the techniques shown and then compete in a competition. On Monday 23 March 2015, Danielle Flanders presented a video on making your own patterned papers with various stamps from your stamp collections, a variety of inks and some plain cardstock.
 
I kept to Danielle's patters and colours, though my stamps in some cases were different. Nevertheless I am pleased with the results. Great Make it Monday Tutorial !

Having fun with my Misti



Today I set a little time aside to make a birthday card for a friend. I used embellished elegance stamp set and dies from Papertrey Ink and inspiration from a lovely card by Kristii, Sincerely Yours Blog. Kristii's card prompted me to buy the stamp set and now with the incredible Misti I can stamp those long thin stems accurately. Inks and cardstock from Papertrey Ink. Patterned paper from stash.
Hope you enjoy.

Misti is in the house

Yesterday the postman knocked on the door with a package from My Sweet Petunia containing a late  Christmas present, the new and incredible stamping tool, MISTI.



My day's plans gave way to trying out the latest invention to the stamping world. Having tried it, I love it. It is seriously the best thing since sliced bread (as they say). The following cards were stamped using stamps and dies from Papertrey Inks, You are a Masterpiece Kit. Using Misti I was able to stamp the die cuts accurately first time with no wastage of cardstock.

 


The Misti is made of sturdy acrylic but to keep it extra safe I invested in a cute oilcloth laptop sleeve by Cath Kidston. It was the perfect fit.
