I have been having a cardmaking version of "writer's block" for several weeks now and although I have been making lots of cards, I don't blog about them because they have been "cased" from others. Diane from Peaceful Lane http://dianejaquay.blogspot.com/ who I think makes really great cards daily, suggested I try a few challenges to help me gain some inspiration. Today I took her up on her suggestion and made a card for the EBTKS #19 Challenge . http://ebtkschallenge.blogspot.com/2010/07/everything-but-kitchen-sink-challenge.html As soon as I saw the picture the cute border from Night, Night Moon popped into my head. I love the sweet images in that set and how beautiful they look stamped on white cardstock. I used a baby boy color scheme as I have a baby shower to attend next month. I am really concentrating on using as many of my PTI tools as possible, so I used a fillable frame stamp and die as well as the new Just the Ticket and ticket die. Wow, I can't believe I almost passed on that ticket set. The tickets are so easy to stamp. They line up so easily. For this card the ticket served as the sentiment and I used the PTI Linen impression plate to add texture to the plain white cardstock. I find myself using that linen plate more than any other one I own. I also colored some of the sparkly rhinestones with copics for the first time and added a few dabs of stickles. I love how this card turned out. Thanks for taking a look!
