Make It Monday Inspiration

Recently Dawn McVey did a Make it Monday video for Papertreyink and I just LOVED the cards she made! It really inspired me to grab some stamps and create a few cards all at once pretty much following her foot steps! I highly recommend you check out the video linked multiple places throughout this post!

Of course, it took me a week to finish them due to continued complications from oral surgery, a full-time job and school being back in session; my craft time is a wee bit limited - but hey, I got 'em done!

I thought I'd break them up over the next few days as once the main panel was finished, I completed each card a bit differently. All the floral images are from PTI's Farmer's Market stamp set; I used various Altenew inks and stamped everything in each corner of the main panel using the Misti; turn the card stock, stamp again and then insert the next main panel making 3 overall. Once the panels were finished; I used the RAH Grid Background stamp on each - one with PTI Vintage Cream, one with SSS Fog and one with PTI Hibiscus Burst. The Hibiscus Burst is very vibrant, the Fog is subtle - I REALLY like it and the Vintage Cream just got lost. :-/ I should have tried white!

I then spritzed each panel with shimmer mist and once dry, stamped the sentiment from WPlus9 in VersaFine black ink. Then we got down to making each card a wee bit different! This first one is all about dimension; I cut out the word FABULOUS and mounted with fun foam, added a layer of gold card stock, a dry embossed polka dot panel and some gold splatters for the final card.

I always decorate the inside of my cards (and envelopes) but this time decided to include photos of the inside. More of the same stamps, same inks, just playing and having fun!!

Stay tuned; two more cards coming up!

Thanks for stopping by; hope you have a GREAT week!!
