Make It Monday #38: Brayer & Impression Plate Techniques

Another last minute post for the latest PTI Make It Monday challenge.  Do you remember those old multi-color spectrum ink pads?  I almost got rid of mine a couple months ago, but it was perfect for this technique!  I also remembered from years ago that inks blend better on glossy card stock, so used that for my brayered panel.

Thanks for stopping by!

Supplies (PTI unless noted)
Stamps:  Fall Elegance
Ink:  Pumpkin Patch Spectrum pad, Early Espresso, Really Rust, Pumpkin Pie (SU!), Tea Dye Duo,
Paper:  glossy card stock, Old Olive (SU!), Stamper's Select white
Accessories:  Spring Moss satin ribbon, Mat Stack 4 die, Vineyard impression plate

Make It Monday #35: Custom Stamped Washi Tape

I'm getting this post up just under the wire for PTI's Make It Monday #35 challenge to stamp your own washi tape.  I was thrilled to see this technique as I've been interested in the washi tape, but it seems a little spendy.  I love that I can make my own tapes to coordinate with my PTI stamps without spending any extra.

Thanks for stopping by,

Stamps:  Candy Cane Christmas, Holiday Photo Finishers, Polka Dot Basics II (PTI)
Ink:  Real Red, Garden Green (SU!)
Paper:  Real Red (SU!)
Accessories:  1/2" Score Tape, tissue paper, Dazzling Diamonds glitter (SU!)

Make It Monday #34: Thick Chipboard Accents

For PTI's Make It Monday #34, I started out planning to make Christmas ornaments.  But when I actually pulled out the dies, they just seemed too small.  Is it just me, or do things always look bigger on the blogs??  Anyway, I added the chipboard pieces to tags, and I love how they turned out.
