PTI Make It Monday #187 - Partial Die Cuts

For this week's challenge, I decided to follow Melissa's lead and make a Christmas themed tag.  I own only a small number of PTI holiday dies, so my choices were limited.  After playing around with several different ideas, I settled on a heart shaped shaker tag using my heart die from the Shakers & Sprinkles kit and one of the scenery dies from this year's Tinsel & Tags kit.  I hope you like it.  Thanks for stopping by to check it out.

My Supplies:  Paper Studio printed snowflake paper
                       Paper Studio white cardstock
                       PTI heart die from Shakers & Sprinkles kit
                       PTI white crystal sprinkles from Shakers & Sprinkles kit mixed with white glitter
                       PTI house scene die from Tinsel & Tags kit
                       Red and white baker's twine
                       Red button

                       Sprinkles & Shakers kit

Merry Monday - Snowflakes, Dry Embossing, Neutral Colors

I made a second card for Merry Monday this week because I realized that although my first card was monocromatic, it didn't really meet the requirement for neutral colors.  Plus, I just love making more cards!  So, here is my second Merry Monday card in neutral grays and white.  The card base is a pale gray with a slightly darker gray rectangle attached.  Then I dry embossed snowflakes on a different gray paper and add white hills of snow.  I die cut the trees, house, snowman and deer, stamping the snowman, deer, and house.  I used foam behind the house to make it stand out more.  I added a banner with my sentiment stamped in gray and finally attached punched snowflakes with rinestones.

CASology Challenge - Ghost

This is a simple little ghost card that I put together rather quickly for this week's challenge.  I dry embossed the background with a  vertical stripe and punched a circle 2/3 of the way up the card.  I then punched a larger orange circle and stamped it with silver stars for the "window."  Next, I die cut my little ghost and added rinestone gems for his eyes and mouth.  I cut a small fancy rectangle and stamped my sentiment in orange.  Lastly, I added orange and white baker's twine for the finishing touch.

My Supplies:
Paper Studio - black and orange cardstock, rinetones
PTI Happy, Spooky Halloween - ghost die, star stamps, sentiment
Sizzix - fancy rectangle die
Mementos Dew Drops - orange ink
Baker's twine
