un ‘merci’ carte – a ‘thank you’ card :)

I learned a little French as an elective topic back when I was in a polytechnic, training to be a biotechnologist (look where I am now, LOL)… I’ve always had a soft spot for this language, although Russian is my favourite, and I’d love to have some Russian greeting stamps. One day, I’ll have some custom made for myself 🙂

For now, I have a ‘merci’ sentiment from Papertrey Ink which I used for my card here today:

I made this card with all the challenges I wanted to do already in mind… I picked a sketch from Card Patterns Weekly Sketch Blog.

Using the Postage die from Papertrey Ink, I cut those 10 pieces and using an MFT scallop die, put my card together… Thought I could enter a paper piecing challenge by Craft Your Days Away Challenge Blog (Challenge 39).

And as for the colours I picked, they are for The Play Date Cafe (Challenge #119 for B&W + Hot Pink) I used Raspberry Fizz ink from PTI and a Raspberry Fizz button for all the hot pink I got in my card!

Also the colours I used were also inspired by Our Creative Corner, which wanted B&W and a splash of colour… Undoubtedly, it was hot pink!

I wanted to push myself even more and picked one more challenge to base my card on, and it was Crazy4Challenges – C4C124 – which was to use polka dots and stripes! These were stamped with PTI’s Polka Dot Basics II for the varying polka dot sizes, and Lawn Fawn’s Schoolhouse Backdrops for the stripes 🙂

So, 5 challenges in total and I think I did pretty okay! What do you think? 🙂

Before I go, just wanted to share with everyone a wonderful piece of news that I was featured on The Kraft Journal blog’s Feature Me Friday for a card I made just a short while ago; original post is here. This is the first time that I have been handpicked and featured in a blog entry like this and I’m beyond thrilled! I do hope to continue improving in my stamping and cardmaking skills 🙂

Thanks for visiting, I hope everyone has a lovely day 🙂 xxStephinka

Valentines… now with extra LOVE! :)

I missed Day 3 and 4 of the Papertrey Ink anniversary festivities, but today I’m back with some card, that are inspired by images on Pinterest. This card I’m sharing in this post is inspired by this:

Love-themed sugar cookies in such delicious shades of pink and red!

Some burlap… PTI heart border dies on Doodlebug Sweet Cakes collection papers. A stamped heart using Hero Arts also on paper from the same collection; a white glittery chipboard heart from Melissa Frances. Finally, PTI Tiny Tag on a MFT heart die cut 🙂

Just love that glittered heart and how there is a little heart cut-out on the kraft tag. 🙂

Thanks for looking!! Hope everyone is doing well! I’ve been having a fair bit of pain these couple of days and hope it will pass soon to more comfortable days!  xx Stephinka.

A little foam tape to make the little rose from Papertrey Ink’s Rosie Posie set pop off the page and give a little dimension! 🙂 The kraft is stamped with Market Street Stamps Honeycomb background stamp.

With kraft coloured jute string, I tied a little bow finished with a Tiny Tag from PTI.
