Thanks for the Memories & MIMC127

This is my first submission to Papertrey Ink’s Make It Monday Challenge.  I really like their stamp sets – though I am getting use to using photopolymer stamps, but I really love the fact that I can see exactly where I am stamping.  You are making me into a believer and the clarity of the stamped images is excellent, too!  PLUS, they have many stamp sets with matching dies which makes creativity sooooo much easier!  A plus for everyone!  Since I am building my PTI inventory, I used stamps from one of my other favorites  – Heartfelt Creations(HFC)!  They have gorgeous images, too!  I used 2 of the new In Color inks and papers from Stampin’ Up! for the colors since I was going for a soft look.  My card is 4.25” by 5.5”.

·       Stamp set(s):  PTI – Wonderful Words:  Memories; HFC – Vintage Words Background, Tattered Background, Chine Fragments, & Tattered Blossoms 
·       Ink(s):  SU – Strawberry Slush & Pistachio Pudding; Memento – London Fog; Chalks – SU stampin’ pastels (ret.) 
·       Paper:  SU:  Very Vanilla, Strawberry Slush, & Pistachio Pudding
·       Dies & Embossing folders:  PTI – Memories Die; Lifestyle Crafts – Nesting Ovals;  HFC – Tattered Blossoms;  Spellbinders – Nested Tea Cups; SU – Framelits Bitty Banners & Fancy Fan EF; Cuttlebug – Swiss Dots EF
·       Embellishments/Other things of note:  SU – Very Vanilla Ribbon Seam Binding & Glimmer Brads Brights    
I first stamped and chalked the tea cup image, cut it out with the matching die and set it aside.  I did the 2 background stamps for the challenge and cut the cs to size and inked the edges with Pistachio Pudding.  I embossed the stamped background and laid it aside.  I stamped and colored the Tattered Blossom Flowers with chalk and cut them out with the matching die.  The card was then a matter of placement which I played with for a few minutes.  I finished it off with pearls at each corner.
Thanks for stopping by my blog to take a look.  Please leave a comment!
Many Blessings,
