PTI SAF 2013: Custom Accents from the oven

The last challenge for me! I will certainly try shrink plastic again.
I loved participating in SAF & doing it from home made me actually make things instead of just yakking & swapping supplies!

Thanks for coming by!

Supplies: PTI cardstock, stamp, dies; Crate PP, EK punch, copics to color shrink plastic

PTI SAF 2013: Candy coated Embellishments

I couldn't find any glitter in my stash, so I broke out these glass microbeads -- still looks candy-coated to me.
I decided to make a tag b/c I didn't know how well the beads would travel in the mail.

Supplies: PTI cardstock,PP, stamp, ribbon, ink; microbeads, twine

PTI SAF 2013: Limited ingredients

Supplies: PTI stamps, cardstock, ink; EK punch, Impress gray ink

PTI SAF 2013: Sprinkle of Salt

I did not have much luck w/the salt. :(
I used watercolor pencils & tons of water, but I think the coaster I used was way too absorbent & so the salt did not much affect the color.
But making lemons out of lemonade, I used part of the piece to die-cut the umbrella & went from there.
Thanks for coming by!

Supplies: PTI cardstock, dies, ink, stamps, coaster; sequins from HL

PTI SAF 2013: Rolled Dough Designs

I pressed the die into the paper clay when it was wet, then cut the pear w/scissors when dry.

Four more challenges to go!

Thanks for coming by!

Supplies: PTI cardstock, PP, stamp; Spellbinders dies, pinking shears, paper clay, Memento ink

PTI SAF 2013: Scent-sational Cards

I mixed cocoa powder w/embossing powder to make this scratch & sniff card for the challenge.

Thanks for coming by!

Supplies: PTI cardstock, stamps, die,PP; Marvy punch, Memento ink

ETA: All That Glitters is Gold Challenge in the Moxie Fab World, PTI SAF 2013: Gallon, Quart, Pint

I've wanted to use this embossing folder for a while. I used Core'dinations Kraft Core, but couldn't get the raised parts sanded well -- so Delicata to the rescue! So the teal Kraft Core is my Gallon, gold is my quart, & the Scarlet Jewel is my pint.
Mounted on a Vintage Cream card base.
Thanks for taking a look!

Supplies: PTI VC & SJ cardstock, Sizzix embossing folder, Core'dinations Kraft Core, Delicata gold ink

PTI SAF 2013: Tea Staining Techniques

I tea-stained some white velvet scalloped ribbon from my stash. The tea I used is called Typhoo & it has a reddish-brown cast, so I had to find something to go with the color the ribbon became. PTI First Fruits (which I got in my goodie bag @ the first SAF in Cincinnati)did the trick.

Thanks for taking a peek!

Supplies: PTI cardstock, stamp, PP; ribbon from my stash, Versafine ink, foam tape

PTI SAF 2013:Mixing Mists to Match

I really did mix a mist to match! I only have a couple PTI re-inkers that weren't colors I was going for, but used some other ones I had to mix up (I think!) a great match for one of my fave PTI colors, Ocean Tides. It looks really good next to the OT cardstock.
Couldn't find my heat gun, so used the toaster! I'm feeling very resourceful today.

Thanks for taking a look!

Supplies: PTI cardstock, stamps, ink; clear embossing powder, Versamark ink, Marvy re-inkers

PTI SAF 2013: Breakfast Bake & Take

My card loosely uses the 2nd color combo & the 5th sketch. You can get these great "recipes" for free on Nichole's blog HERE

Supplies: PTI cardstock, stamp, coverplate; Spellbinders embossing folder, foam tape, Impress ink
