Make It Monday #53 -- attempt #1

Saturday, February 18, 2012


This week's Make It Monday at Papertrey Ink is to use the PTI coasters in a creative way. I've actually never purchased coasters, but my friend, Mandy, gave me a couple to try several months ago. So I found one in my stash and was able to use it for two cards. Here is the first one I made, where I diecut my coaster, stamped the sentiment, ran it through my diecutting machine with my woodgrain impression plate and then added a little soft stone ink with my tim holtz distresser:

I used PTI coaster, cardstock (canyon clay), stamps (wonderful words additions) & dies (double-ended banner die, alphabet block). I also used My Mind's Eye patterned paper & decorative brads, as well as their latest sketch on the MME blog.

Thanks for looking!
