Make it Monday!

Evening Everyone!

Yes I am back again! This Papertrey Anniversary is certainly keeping my blog active! So today Nichole announced the NEW 'Make it Monday' which will be a weekly challenge. You can read all about it HERE and also the current challenge which is Go-To Sentiment Cards.

I always need Thank you cards so I thought I'd make that the first of my cards that I will most likely be making for this challenge seeing as the prize is a $250 Papertrey Gift Certificate!

Purple is a colour that I use lots of then non seems to appear for ages! I do like the colour but it's not my go to colour I guess I should say. Anyhow, I chose to use the Plum Pudding CS as I was hopping around blog land and saw some of the Sugar Plum paper used. I do LOVE polka dotted paper and completely forgot I had this paper pad so out it came!

I'm loving these cute lil 4x4" cards, so quick and easy to fill the space! I'm certainly giving my PTI dies a workout this week as you can see by my creations! The Mat Stack 4 is one of my FAVES because of it's size and I am kicking myself for not ordering the Mat Stack 5 - hope it's back in stock by release!

Ok back to the card! I used an array of stamp sets to stamp the background: Mixed Messages, Mat Stack 3, Up, Up & Away, Butterfly Dreams, Communique Curve Sentiments, Mat Stack 1, Beyond Basic Borders, Round & Round and finally Giga Guidelines! I used the technique Erin showed in her video & also used Nichole's idea of stamping one sentiment in black ink to stand out.

The Mat Stack 4 is adhered to the card using foam pads and the same for the butterfly.

There is also a new challenge over on A Passion for Papertrey! So as I was making the card I thought I'd join in on the NEW challenge which is 'Tag Your It!' Tags, I love them! 

I didn't want to stamp all ove the tag so I only added one sentiment but lots of butterflies instead. Really simple but I think it stands out nicely!

I used Maile's technique HERE for the tag ribbon! It just looks tidy and neat and makes attaching it to a gift super simple.

Well, I have certainly waffled on tonight! Lol! It's back to uni tomorrow and an early start. I got a bit done today but still got a way to go! 

I'll be back tomorrow with a scheduled post while I am out with another TAG to share.

Thanks for stopping by - Again!
