Papertrey Ink Make it Monday #105

This week's Make it Monday video/technique is presented by Dawn McVey and her featured technique is glittered borders.

I knew I wanted to play along when I saw that glitter was involved. I love adding glitter to just about everything. I decided to make a glittered border frame using the new Mat Stack 6. The flowers and sentiment are from a new set Fancy Folk Art. I stamped the sentiment a second time on Hawaiian Shores CS and paper pieced the 'wishes to you' part.
And that vintage-looking glitter? Antique White Art Glitter. This is my favorite glitter and you can find it here. It has the most subtle blush hue.

The flowers in this set are so fun to use. Using multiple stamps on a single image creates so much detail. I'm loving these new sets from Papertrey Ink.

Thanks for looking. I'm off to look at some of the other glittered entries.

Papertrey Make It Monday project

This past week's make it Monday inspired me to get out that pillow box die and create something fun.

For the paper I downloaded and printed a royalty-free map image. I will be on {a tropical} vacation on Valentines Day so I wanted a little 'travel' theme for the gift. I stamped Background Basics Hearts in Pure Poppy ink over the map paper before assembling. For the tag I used the new Tremendous Tags and The Sweet Life stamp set - such a fun set to use.
I made three of these - one for my mom, and one for my boy and my niece. Each packages holds three Hershey nuggets.
Looking forward to getting out of Washington for a while.

Thanks for visiting my blog today:)
