Make It Monday Challenges #5 and #6

I didn't get time at the weekend to do Papertrey Ink's Make It Monday challenge #5 from last week which was to use distressed edges, so I made one today. Too late to enter for the winning stamp set, but I still wanted to do it.

I used my new Dressform stamp set that I got from karin at our PTI day on Sunday - I wasn't overly fussed when I first saw this one, but it has really grown on me now. This card is also for Sweet Sunday's Sketch #108 and CR84FN19 to use Aqua, Steel Blue and Gray and this is their inspiration piccy:


And here's my entry for it:

Recipe:

Stamps: Dressform from PTI

Papers: Basic Gray, Not Quite Navy both from SU, Stamper Select White, Aqua Mist, Pretty Pastels DSP all from PTI, Gray DSP from Magnolia

Inks: Basic Gray from SU

Accessories: Circle Nestabilities, Flower from eBay, Aqua Mist ribbon from PTI, Distressing tool

And this Monday's Make It Monday Challenge #6 was to deboss only half a piece of cardstock/diecut or whatever. I debossed the lower half of my Harvest Gold layer with the Diamonds Impression Plate, but I could not get it to show on the photo at all, and I had to make it really dark so you could see. This one is also for Waltzing Mouse Sketch #36 from a couple of weeks ago that I missed and Free For All #51 to use red, purple and gold in honor of the impending royal wedding (we get a day off work for it yay!).


Recipe:

Stamps: Beautiful Blooms II, Vintage Picnic

Papers: Harvest Gold, Royal Velvet, Stampers Select White all from PTI, Cherry Cobbler from SU

Inks: So Saffron, Elegant Eggplant, Cherry Cobbler all from SU

Accessories: Diamonds Impression Plate, Royal Velvet ribbon, Beautiful Blooms Die 1 all from PTI, Buttons from Elzybells, Purple Baker''s Twine from Quixotic Paperie, Red Baker's Twine from Martha Stewart, Yallow Baker's Twine from The Ribbon Reel.

And that's all from me today folks! Thanks for stopping by.
