Trio of PTI -The Sweet Life cards

I love my PTI - Sweet Life stamp set... The day I got it, I think I fell in love. My love for Altenew's Vintage flowers is diminishing by the day, because these are so so easy to line up...and the dies are so reasonable. PTI is 11$ vs Altenew's 26$ (so it does have 14 pieces but still !!!!!!!!)
Altnew is somehow making me more frustrated by the day, because I need them to line up perfectly, which does not happen even with a Misti (or I am loosing my vision! )

Anyhow, back to this trio of cards... I got inspired by one of Brandy's videos. And I took my measurements from her card. Except I just replaced the flower with one of my own. And instead of crimping my cardstock, I just stamped it! I love her channel...especially the old videos. These are so quick to mass produce.

I love the black and white with a pop of color...I am going to make a ton of these combinations soon! :)

Hope you like is the supply list for those interested.

Trio of Three amigos

Here is another set of cards that I had made in December - January.

I  had decided to make multiples while my set is still out. So I stamped a bunch of images and colored them, fussy cut them and then they were ready to be made into cards...So today I am featuring my Mama Elephant, Three Amigos stamp set.
I simply love the little rascals...and I love the little notes I can put into them.

All images are colored with Prismacolored pencils and Odorless thinner using paper stumps.
The background in this first card is made with distress inks. Cloud dies are PTI and the grass and the stitched hill die (actually a speech bubble) is from MFT.

This background is with distress inks and then I flicked some white paint across for some interest.
Stitched rectangle die is from Lil inkers.

This card has an embossed brick background (Darice if I am not wrong), circle die from Lil Inkers again.

So that was a quick share of my Mama Elephant Trio cards....

Let me know if you have any questions about products used. Or just leave a quick hello..I love hearing from you all!

Toodles, till we meet again!

You are Awesome!!

So I begin my posting in March...Trying to do a lot of intentional work here..and hopefully sticking to it. Wishful thinking does not work..Planning and writing it down, works!

So I know this girl called Priya amazing girl, totally inspiring crafter and one of the most sweetest person I am lucky to call a friend ..So she sent this Aaaaamazing background stamp from MFT called All over Roses...(I still don't know how she knew it was on my wishlist) but once I got it, I had to play!!

I made two backgrounds with it.

You have already seen the card I made with the Pink in this post

 This is the other card I made.
The sentiment is from Lil Inkers, Embossed in Platinum Sparkle Powder.

Pretty simple, but had to wait till I sent it out to someone who made me shout out with joy!!
I am so blessed to know people like her. I am not a huge fan of surprises, because not everyone gets it right with what I love. I am pretty weird that way.
But this girl...oh!! She found out that I am a fan of Amish Tripathi, the author. And she just happened to know him. What are the odds!!
And she sends me the whole set of books, personally signed by him. I was on cloud nine that day...and to this day, every time I see those books I have a huge grin on my face!! Thank you Anang for being the one person whose surprise I totally loved!! Big big hugs to you girl!!

I have a lot of scheduled posts coming up...and many trios and duos of cards using a single stamp set..
As I am making more than one card with my supplies already out! Why not!!
