Thank U

A start of another week! Can you believe we are already in the middle of June?? and for Papertrey Ink addicts its also release night. Whatcha getting?

I worked on creating CAS (clean and simple) cards this weekend. CAS can take a loooonnng time to make! LOL! I hope you like this one.

I used my Spellbinder square nesties to cut the cork. It took several times through my Big Shot to get the job done. It made a great frame to highlight PTI's Take Three:Summer bird stamp.

I stamped the bird in Hawaiian Shores pigment ink which really wasn't matching the paper very well. Can you see the 2 colors below?? Dark on the outside edge and more of a blue in the middle.

So. . . before I stamped the flower I worked the poor stamp pad OVER!!!
I smooshed, re-inked, smooshed, stuck my fingers in it. You get the picture. It is definitely better. You might even be able to see some hints of green in the flower now. Not perfect but I'm not above working that stamp pad OVER again.

Enjoy your day and maybe I'll see some of you later tonight! By the way, I want it ALL!! but think I'll take Dana's advice and think it through!

  1. I love the cork on this card and how great is PP and HS together ......... LOVE IT!!!! I am so wanting to use my take 3 but believe it or not when I went to remove the flower image I had my finger on the middle one and they were still attached from the manufacturing and the 2nd image is now ripped ...... I love that set and hope that I can get a new one soon!!!

  2. Great card, Rhonda! I love the cork frame! I'm loving too much PTI again this month. I too think I'm going to wait and think on this some.

  3. Beautiful card!! I love how you staple your sentiment!!

  4. What a cool card! Your staple element and cork are so cool...and I love the split thank you!

  5. This is so adorable! I love, love, love the cork! :)

  6. Cute card! It's interesting how a CAS card does take a long time to create. At least for me. And have you read the release about PTI Ink being discontinued? So glad they are starting out fresh.

  7. So cute..and I love that cork!!

  8. Great card,and I to love the cork!!
    I have a sheet of that somewhere, I just might have to go digging now!lol

  9. Wonderful card and I LOVE the cork! I have this set but have yet to ink it up. Fabulous PTI release this month and lots of tempting things. I was good however and only got the one set I absolutely had to have--Tea for Two Additions! Also ordered some dies and the In Bloom Impression Plate which I think looks awesome.

  10. What a cute card. Love the color combo and the cork is just the perfect touch.

  11. This is so cute, I love the colors and the frame!

  12. Very cute. Great use for the cork too.

  13. Wow - how many different ways can one say CUTE? This is fabulous! I love the white space - but you've still packed so much interest in here! The cork frame is lovely - and the flowers really finish this off! Beautiful Rhonda!


I love your feedback!! Thanks for stopping by.
