PTI Make it Monday ~ #28 glitter die borders!

OK...OK... I know it says Make it Monday and this is Thursday!!! Had the card ready on Tuesday with the exception of one element ~ glitter  :)  I know my sister-in-law (aka: stamping buddy) is having a goooood laugh right now. You see; I have this thing about glitter and the way it seems to be with you for days and days no matter how extremely neat and careful you are. LOL  But I haven't played along with the Make it Monday challenge at Papertrey Ink for a few weeks and I missed them!!! So I went to Joann's today and bought some Martha Stewart glitter! Yep... that's right "my buddy"... I ~ Lisa ~ bought glitter...are you doin the happy dance for me!


I started with a kraft base and used fresh snow ink to created some clouds as a background. I stamped a row of tiny grass along the bottom in moss green. I added a bit of the grass and a few tiny flowers from the PTI: tag-its #3 set on the PTI: picket fence die. The tiny bumble bees and the sentiment are from this set too. The sun is from the PTI: limitless layers die set(love this set so much!) The fence sections and center circle of the sun are popped up with foam tape. And then there is Miss Martha's glitter (hehe). Brace yourselves...I've actually used two glitters on the sun! I started with crystal coarse then added a layer of crystal fine to fill in the tiny areas!

So if you hear any reports of unexplained shiny objects in the Ohio area...don't worry...it's just me!!! Thanks for stopping by today! ~ Lisa

PS... A BIG thanks to all who gave well wishes for my fur baby Max!!! I am happy to report he is back to his ridiculously adorable little self...YAY!!!

Love your cheery sunshine! The yellow twine is the perfect touch to a great card. I hear you on the glitter thing.... I loved the idea of a lint roller to clean up. It's now on my grocery list! Have a Sonshine filled Friday!

What a darling card Lisa! Love the glittery frame and the picket fence :)

Folly said...

LOL, Lisa! The reason you don't like glitter is the very reason I LOVE glitter. When I use my glitter, I am sparkly for days, and I can use the excuse that my card-making glitter fell on me and made me look like a fairy princess. :-)))
Your card is lovely, it makes me feel happy.

Hahaha, my husband has the exact same thoughts on glitter! I tend not to use it very much either. I love this card and all the little details, particularly the happy little flowers along the fence!

This is such a great card. Your clouds look fantastic done in white on the kraft. I've never seen this before. The way you placed your sentiment in the fence opening is very creative and a great look. Well done!

Teresa said...

Your card is adorable. Love both of your glitters. Just be sure to touch your face after using glitter to make sure everyone knows what you've been up too.

Cute card. Love your sun!The opening in the fence makes me think maybe its time for a gate die to go along with the fence.
