PTI August Blog Hop


Once again, I'm participating in the monthly Papertrey Ink blog hop. This month's challenge is a fast one -- a Fast Food challenge, where Nichole supplied us with colour combos and sketches to use for our projects.

I couldn't resist creating a card for each one.

I also couldn't resist using my new Scent-imentals stamp set and making scratch & sniff cards for five of them, so I'm also linking them up for the Whipping Up Scent-sational Cards SAF Challenge.

Here's the first sketch & colour combo:



And here's my card. I rotated the sketch 180˚ & I traded out the lemon tart for some rustic white. Otherwise, everything I used here is according to the colour scheme and is PTI. I wove my strips of kraft cardstock to mimic the pie crust. I stamped my cherries and cut them out by hand. I heat embossed them with some sugar-free cherry jello powder mixed with clear embossing powder.


Here's the second sketch and colour combo:


For this one, I rotated the sketch 90˚ to the right. I was a little stumped on the colour combo, until I found this sheet of Echo Park patterned paper in my stash. I stamped my Scent-imentals image and sentiment onto dark chocolate cardstock (I trimmed the end with my Tag Sale #5 die) and heat embossed them in white. I did the same with the flourish from Modern Wood Mats (I masked off the little flowers on the ends) and I added the "steam" with a Pedal Pushes stamp-- it's the one with the little cans, I just masked them off. I stamped the coffee in the cup in Versamark and then heat embossed it with brown embossing powder mixed with coffee grounds. I added some twine and a canyon clay button.


Here's the third colour combo and sketch:



I used some strips of Crate Paper patterned paper layered over some vintage cream cardstock to create my background. I stamped my sentiment on some patterned paper (the same that I used for my card base), that I'd diecut with my edger's #3 diecut. I stamped the peace in harvest gold and summer sunrise ink-- I was pleased how it turned out! Some buttons and twine finish it off.



Here's the fourth colour combo and sketch:


This was the only card I didn't use the Scent-imentals set on. I really liked the little flowers in the sketch, so I used my Iconic Images stamp set and Turning a New Leaf for the leaves. I impressed the plum pudding card stock with my woodgrain impression plate and stamped my sentiment (from Boutique Borders: Birthday) in plum pudding ink.


Here's the fifth colour combo and sketch:


For this card, I raided my patterned paper scraps. I found some that matched the colours in the sketch (I did go with ocean tides instead of aqua mist, though) and cut them into 1/2" strips. I stitched them onto my cardstock and stamped my sentiment in Spring Rain ink. I stamped my cherry leaves onto the background in ocean tides. I stamped my cherries onto another piece of vintage cream cardstock with both hibiscus burst & lavender moon. Then I stamped the cherries again in Versamark & heat embossed them with some sugar-free cherry jello powder mixed with clear embossing powder. Some ocean tides buttons finish it off.


And here's the sixth colour combo and sketch:



For this one, I deviated a little from the sketch. I rotated it 180˚, but then moved the tag into the centre. I was totally inspired by the sweet take out box. I used some Crate Paper patterned paper for the background, layered over kraft cardstock. I diecut my true black cardstock with my Mat Stack 4 die cut and stamped my Scent-imentals image and sentiment and heat embossed them in white. Since the brown ink didn't show up in the cut when I tried it, I decided to stamp it in Versamark and then heat emboss it with brown Zing! embossing powder mixed with coffee grounds. Some rustic twine finishes it off.


Thanks for looking!

All of these are wonderful but I especially love the first and last card. The weaved strips to resemble the pie crust and then the cute little cherry? To die for! And then the coffee house look and chalkboard technique on the last card. Just awesome!
