Paper Trey Ink's Up, Up and Away

Hello all! I hope your week is going well. This is a card I made for a Judge (I work in a Hearings and Appeals Office) that was moving away from our office. I figured these images were just perfect for him. He "loved" it!

I used Paper Trey Ink's "Up, up and away" set. There are so many different images with this set. I also used the balloon dies and cloud dies that go with this set. Soooo easy. I colored the balloons with my Copics. Sponged the edges of the clouds with Momento Summer Sky. Used dimensionals. The cardstock is Paper Trey's Enchanted Evening. I also used the Background Basics Woodgrain stamps in VersaMark and then sprinkled clear embossing powder and heat embossed.

The sentiment is computer generated using Spellbinders die (sorry I threw away the package and do not know the name of the die).

I did not have time to photo the inside, because the card was made in less than an hour and it was for a special event for this Judge at the office. However, I did put a couple of balloons on the inside with a sentiment meant just for someone special going away!!

Please click on the picture to get a better view. Again, I photographed this at night and the lighting, though fair, was not as good as I would have liked it to be.

Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to make such lovely comments! I am on my way to visit your blogs so I can check out what my faithful peeps have been doing lately! God Bless :)

Crafty Secrets

Hello Peeps! I know I have been MIA for a while now. I have been just a little bit busy at work and have not found the time to post. Sorry!

Also, I have had so many orders for cards and I end up getting them done the night before and forget to photograph it.

This is one that I made back in February. I am glad I tookthe photo, because it was gone the day after I made it.

There is not much of an explanation, as I think you can see what I used. Frankly, I do not remember the papers, maybe SU. I know the Happy Birthday Sentiment came from Artful Inkables. and I used a small butterfly punch for the butterflies with tiny little rhinestones on their backs. The ribbon is from Sharon Johnson's Ribbon Store and it is Red 100% this stuff!

Wishing you all a great week ahead...thanks for stopping by !!

What a Great Weekend!

I really did try to work on making the photograph on this ensemble better, but I was really havin a time with the lighting in the room, probably because I took it at night time. So sry about that.
I used Paper Trey Ink's Lillie of the Valley stamp for this one. The white background is embossed with PTI's Picknic Plaid Impression plates...I just love the dimension it gives. I colored the flower with my copic markers and added Diamond Dust glitter to each flower. The butterflies were a whimsy addition. The ribbon is also PTI Green thinks...I made a cupcade box with cupcake inside. I got this template from , where they have tons of 3-d items for you to enjoy and they make great gifts to add to your cards. It even came with the acetate to cover the top of the box. This was for a friend who had received a promotion and was leaving our office. We will miss her, but wish her the best of luck!
Have a great week, stay productive but most of all healthy! Thanks for stopping by and leaving your encouraging coments!!!
