I DO like Mondays!

I know, not everybody’s favourite day of the week BUT if you’re a fan of Papertrey Ink as I am then we all now have a new reason to look forward to Monday.  There is a new challenge called Make It Mondays and each week one of the PTI DT will post a video showing that week’s technique.  This week there is a fab challenge using different sentiments from different sets in a particular theme.

Now, I don’t know if this was REALLY the point but I took it upon myself to get ALL my Christmas sets out and use at least one sentiment from each one.  Here’s what happened…

I satmped most of the sentiments in Tea Dye distress ink and the darker “Merry Christmas” in Vintage sepia.  I don’t know if you can make it out but I also stamped the large poinsettia from Year of Flowers: Poinsettia to give a subtle background detail.  Nothing like my usual style but I had fun – which IS the point isn’t it.

Thanks for dropping by.

  4. Hi Caryn,

    Thanks for visiting my blog! I loved joining in for the Papertrey challenge and since my collection of PTI stamps is still expanding and so is my love for this brand, I will surely join in more often, love the blog and love it that there’s something happening in Europe as well! I am hoping that one day PTI will decide to come to a fair here in Europe, so we can do some easy shopping there, hi hi. Love the card you made here, it has a wonderful warm feeling, and all those sentiments this way are so pretty!! Great card!!
    Hugs, Wendy
