PTI Make it Monday #40 Reverse Applique

This week Heather came up with a wonderful challenge: Reverse Applique for Make it Monday over at Papertrey Ink.

As soon as I saw this technique I knew I wanted to use the Dress Form die and some fabric, because of the stitching theme.
So here's my take on the challenge:

I've die cut the Dress Form from Stampers Select White cardstock and ran it through my BigShot using the Music Sheet Impression Plate. Then I hand stitched around the Dress Form with a thread in Raspberry Fizz color.
The little piece of fabric is from 'Tilda' Wintergarden and to add some dimension I stuffed it with fiberfill and adhered it to another piece of white cardstock. The card front is attached to a Raspberry Fizz cardbase.

Thanks for stopping by and have a nice weekend!

Materials (all PTI unless noted):
Cardstock: Stampers Select White, Raspberry Fizz
Ink: Raspberry Fizz
Stamps: Think Big Favorites 3
Dies: Dress Form, Journal Tabs, Music Sheet Impression Plate
Other: Raspberry Fizz button, Rustic Twine, Tilda fabric, American Crafts Premium Ribbon Orchid

A colorful challenge

There's a new challenge on the Passion for Papertrey blog. This time they came up with a colorful challenge using this colorscheme...

I was immediately inspired since I've seen this wonderful Christmas Poinsettia over at Nichole's blog.
So when my new stash arrived thursday afternoon I started digging in my box searching for the package with the stamp set which included the dies. (Don't you love the way the PTI goodies come in? Every stamp set in a piece of paper and one package has all the dies... And the way the buttons are on top, smiling at you and scream: grab me, grab me!!)

I die cut 2 large flowers and 2 medium ones out of Mellon Berry felt and 2 leaves out of Simply Chartreuse felt and stitched them like Nichole did.
Since I like it quick and easy I punched a small hole with my Crop-a-dile and stuck them together with a brad. On top is a Simply Chartreuse button.

Then I cut a piece of Vintage Cream cardstock and I used my Music Sheet impression plate with an Angled Label die to create the embossed card front. The sentiment is stamped in Stazon Timber Brown and is from the new Christmas Poinsettia stamp set.
Finally I adhered the front on a card of Dark Brown cardstock.

Thank you ladies for the challenge and the inspiration!

PTI Make it Monday 39

This weeks Make it Monday is about making your own backgrounds using mutiple stamps.
I love watching the video's every week and I'm glad I had the chance to join again this time.

And here's my take on the challenge:

For my background I've used the branches from Bells & Boughs in Ripe Avocado Ink, the little stars from Love Lives Here: Holiday in Scarlet Jewel, the dots are from Bells & Boughs as wel, stamped with Stazon in Timber Brown. After stamping these images I stamped Background Basics: Newsprint with Versamark on top and inked the edges with Distress Ink Antique Linnen.

I've also created mutiple layers with the die cuts to get more depth in the card.

I'm waiting for my October goodies to arrive this afternoon, till then I'll kill some time creating more backgrounds ;)
Thanks for stopping by!
