Cure For The Monday Blues Challenge #24

For this week's Cure For The Monday Blues Challenge, we have to make a card based on the following inspiration photo.

Here is my take on the challenge.


I used the neon orange, yellow, aqua, brown and grey colors from the picture. I also used PTI Make It Market : Shakers and Sprinkles stamp and die set.

I started by die cutting the "Sprinkled" word and embossing it with neon orange Zing embossing powder. I adhered the word on a piece of PTI Aqua Mist cardstock. I stamped the sentiment with A-muse Slate ink pad.

I used four strips of woodgrain paper to frame the sentiment. I got this idea when I saw the shelves in the picture. The bucket of paint gave me an idea to add something that looks like paint drops on my card. I thought that the confetti die from the PTI kit would work, so I adhered some paper confetti on my card.

I'm actually quite surprised with this challenge. I did not like the color scheme when I saw the picture for the first time. After I finished the card, I realized that the colors are pretty nice.

Supplies:
- PTI Maket It Market: Shakers and Sprinkles kit
-Versamark, A-muse Slate ink pads
- Neon orange Zing embossing powder
- PTI Aqua Mist and Harvest Gold cardstock, Bazzil Cardstock
- Woodgrain paper

Rainbow Medallion

I created this card as an entry to PTI's Make It Monday challenge. Since it's July, it's time to make a Christmas card ;).






I used a stamp from PTI's Peaceful Pinecones set to create this card. The sentiment, coming from the same set, is stamped and embossed on a piece of banner created using a die from Avery Elle's Build a Banner set.

I used some gold Stickles to add some sparkles to the card. I really enjoyed making this one layer card.

Supplies:
-PTI Peaceful Pinecones set
-Avery Elle's Build a Banner set
-Stampin' Up ink pads
-Gold Stickles
-Gold Zing Embossing powder
-Neenah White cardstock

Hip Hip Hooray!

Hello,

I want to share a card that I made as an entry for Cure For the Monday Blues challenge.

This time, we have to make a card based on the following inspiration photo.

The glass and the label maker gave me an idea to make a shaker card. So here's my card.




For the base, I embossed a white cardstock with PTI's Woodgrain impression plate, to imitate the table in the inspiration photo. Using Spellbinders dies, I stacked two piece of circle cardstock and the base to create the circle frames for the shaker card.

I created the "Hip Hip Hooray!" strips using a label maker. I pasted the pieces on another piece of embossed cardstock. With the help of dimensional adhesives I finished the shaker card.

The white sentiment on a black cardstock is from PTI's Happy For You set.

Supplies:
-Stampin' Up Whisper White cardstock, black cardstock
-PTI Lavender Moon Cardstock

Just a Note

This is another card that I made as an entry for Cure For the Monday Blues challenge.

This time, I use the message board in the following photo as my inspiration.


So, here is my card.


I started by embossing a piece of Neenah Dessert Storm cardstock with a polka dot embossing powder. I applied a white inkpad directly on the raised part of the cardstock.

For the frame, I die cut a piece of the cardstock using two Spellbinders Nestabillities Label 17 dies. I then applied some glitter by using heat and stick powder.

I stamped "Just a Note" phrase (from StudioL2E's Special Delivery set) on a piece of patterned paper. I added a strip of washi tape and a red brad on the little note.

Supplies:
- Studio L2E Special Delivery set
- Neenah Dessert Storm cardstock and Stampin' Up Whisper White cardstock
- Polka dot embossing powder
- Judi Kins Heat & Stick Powder

- Spellbinders Nestabillities Label 17

Flower Card

Hello,

I made two cards for Cure for The Monday Blues Challenge. This week's inspiration photo is:


For the first card, I use the flowery carpet as my inspiration.


I made this card using inlaid die-cuts technique. I started by die cutting a piece of PTI's Hawaiian Shore cardstock with Pretty Peonies dies. I placed the dies where I want the flowers to be. I then stamped the peony images on the die cuts and heat embossed the images with Zing embossing powders in different colors.

I colored the surroundings of the embossed images with a black marker. Once done, I simply adhered the die cuts to the negative part of the die cut.

Using Stampin' Up Chalk marker, I draw some lines and dots on the embossed images.

Supplies:
-PTI Pretty Peonies Stamp and Die set
-PTI Hawaiian Shore cardstock
-Zing Embossing powders
-Stampin' Up Chalk Marker and Ink pad.
