Mixing Patterned Papers

 For Papertrey Make It Monday # 67 using three patterned papers.  I used two florals from Basic Grey called Home Sweet Home. They are two sides from the same sheet. For a tone on tone pattern I went back and forth between the green and the dark yellow, both were from my scrap pile. I knew I wanted to use Harvest Gold cardstock, buttons and ribbon.

 So I went with the dark yellow tone on tone for my third paper. I snuck in a little Spring Rain to pick up the blue flower. The Tea Pot was stamped in Chocolate Chip, I was going for the Brown Betty look.
I used the Mat Stack dies and the Tea for Two die with the Tea for Two Stamp Set, all Papertrey.
Thanks for looking!

More Boxes & Butterflies

 I had such  good time decorating the box for the Colour Q Challenge that I decided to do a few more.
These are some dotty boxes I had in my stash and I did six of them all the same. They are large enough to hold 4 votive candles wrapped in tissue paper.

 I also did six smaller boxes. They don't have room for as many embellishments so I went a little simpler.
These ones will hold 2 votive candles.
Little boxes like this are great gifties for Thankyou, Hostess, Year End or Friend Gifts.
Thanks for looking.

Happy Birthday Jackie

Here's a card I did for my daughter in laws Birthday today.  I used the rolled flowers using border dies technique from Papertrey's Make it Monday #66. For my rolled flowers I used the zig zag border to cut some Papertrey felt and then cut right down the centre of the zig zag strip and rolled two small flowers. Then I die cut some more flowers with Papertrey dies and used one of the rolled flowers as a centre.

The card base and border strips are Papertrey Lavender Moon. Patterned paper is Kaisercraft Bonjour Collection. I also used the ticket border die and Fillable Frames Additions 1 stamp set with a coordinating die. The frame looks a little crooked, I think its just the angle I took the photo from.  Stamping was done with Chocolate Chip craft ink which always give me fits. Thanks for looking.

Scrappy Background Paper

Inspired by the latest Papertrey Make It Monday video. I only used two patterned papers for my background but they fit perfectly, I only had to trim the width, so I figured it was meant to be. Cardstock used is Papertrey Raspberry Fizz and Sweet Blush. Stamps and coordinating dies are Papertrey Tea for Two and Mat Stack 3 Collection.
Thanks for looking!

 Another card with Papertrey Challenge colours (see post below) with the
additon of Raspberry Fizz.
All non patterned paper, dies and buttons from Papertrey Ink.
Happy Mother's Day sentiment from Stampin Up.

Papertrey Colour Challenge

I had most of the colours for this challenge. I used Sweet Blush, Lemon Tart,
Canyon Clay and New Leaf papers. I grabbed a sheet of patterned paper hoping there's
some sort of Melon Berry in there somewhere LOL!

 The flowers were cut with Papertrey Dies and run through a Cuttlebug folder,
 the sentiment is from Papertrey Big & Bold Wishes stamp set.
