Two Cards! I'm on a Roll!

Today was another challenge day on the PTI blog - this time to create interactive cards. My first card uses a new item called Action Wobble Springs. I ordered them from Amazon last week and I just checked over there to link them for you, but they are out of stock already :( These are really cool. You just peel and stick to the element you want to wobble. The frog on the lily pad looks super cute wobbling around! I highly recommend these little guys if you can find them!

My second card is one I did for my daughter's birthday. This one is a shutter card. Not sure it's exactly interactive, but I think it qualifies. This one took some time.... The ribbon, cardstock and felt flowers are PTI. This one turned out so cute, it was worth the extra time!

Here's a video showing the frog wobbling! Love it!

PTI Anniversary Contest, Day #5

Today's challenge was to find an inspirational picture on Pinterest and make something based on it! Fun! I'm in the Valentine's spirit, so I thought these cute conversation hearts within a heart were just the thing.

I used some Twinery twine and popped up the negative die cut with foam dimensionals. The hearts were cut from (mostly) PTI paper and stamped with the Tag-It's set....#11 I think? The sentiment is one from the Think Big Favorites series. I had to add a little glitter to the sentiment with a Spica pen, but it doesn't show up well in the picture. Oh well! I keep meaning to get some pictures of my craft room when it's clean to put up here on the blog, but everytime I think of it, the room is a mess again....one of these days!

Papertrey Anniversary Contest

Well, in a way I am a day late and a dollar short! I started this card for a contest that was running yesterday but didn't get it finished. Todays contest had us use a choice of a few cute digi stamps from the Papertrey design team - and what do you know! Dawn McVey's cute digi matched the colors I chose for "yesterday's" card perfectly. So, the two have been rolled into one! I was really hoping to get more cards done today, but between work, he gym, an ortho appointment for my son and a pediatrician appointment for my daughter, this is the only one I could get done.....thus the super-simple nature of it!!! Wish me luck :)
