Thinking of you…

Morning everybody,
I have been making more embossing plates using my dies. Here is one more card made using homemade embossing plate. The dies I have used on this green panel is made using Turning New Leaf dies from Papertrey Ink.
closeup
I figured out after making a few embossing panels from dies, that embossing is much more defined with solid dies, cut using thicker cardboard. I tried using tissuebox but the embossing is not so good. The toys and games packaging cardboard is perfect. exact thickness to run through cuttlebug without stressing it and gives good impression.
Here is a close up of the card

PTI Blog Hop – January 2012

This month, in honor of the new year, we are challenging you to pick your
favorite project from 2011 and share it with al of us! ย To take it a step
further, you are also challenged to create a second card that is inspired by
the favorite project you select. ย Your new version of an old favorite could
carry over the color scheme, the layout or the stamp sets. ย We look forward
to seeing your best creations from 2011 as well as one of your first projects
for 2012!
Picking “a” favourite project from 2011 is such a difficult thing to do. Na…. I could not do it. I pick a bunch and finally narrowed it to two. Here is my first favourite card from 2011


I made this card for MIM and love to create my own background using stamps. Recreated another card using this card as an inspiration. I created a background using PTI’s Rosie Posie stamp set. Here is the card for you
Happy Birthday card
I wanted a modern looking background and Rosie Posie stamps are perfect for do that. I also choose lighter colours and kept the sentiment simple on a banner diecut.
Supplies:
Cardstock: SU’s Tempting Turquoise, Daffodil Delight and White
Stamp sets: Rosie Posie and Butterfly Dreams from PTI
Inks: Amuse’s Bubblegum,Pappaya, Grass and Ocean ink and SU’s Basic Grey ink
Accessories: Spellbinder’s banner die, cuttlebug.
Second card which is my favourite is this one
I love Modern Basic Stamp set and the striped background I had created. Wanted a modern take on this one too and so changed the colours but kept the layout.
Brighter card
I love grey and any colour together especially orange.Bright and modern and perfect with that sentiment.
Supplies:
Cardstock: Canyon Clay from PTI and white from SU
Stamp sets: Modern Basic and Think Big Favourite from PTI
Ink: Tangerine Tango and Basic Grey from SU and Stazon Black Ink
Thanks so much for visiting! Happy Hopping ๐Ÿ™‚

3-D

The Map to Your Heart

Moxie Fab Challenge has a challenge called The Map to Your Heart – make projects using maps ๐Ÿ™‚ I love the idea and the inspirations are just magnificant. But when coming to making a project, I was stumped. Well, as the deadline is approaching, I was more determined to make something. I am a person who works well if I have deadline
So here is what I came up with.
Map frame

I printed out a map and ran alpha dies to get map alpha diecuts. I cut alphabet “I” and “U” using black cardstock. You can see how I am still using the rainbow striped leftovers by punching the heart shape ๐Ÿ™‚
So the “I” “โ™ฅ” and “U”ย  standout against the other map alphabets.
Supplies
Cardstock: White and Black cardstock.
Pattern Paper: Printed map from the computer
Accessories: White frame, Heart punch from SU, MFT Alpha dies, Cuttlebug and rainbow strip from previous project.
