Make It Monday #4: Creating with Fun Foam

Can I just tell you how much I love PTI dies?!  They are SO fun to play with!  This card is for my niece.  I used foam for everything except the card base (I just used white card stock).  As you can see in the beautiful Florida sun, the white and pink foam are from glitter foam sheets!  Such fun!
I love the impression the foam gives!

I hope you like it!

Dies used: (all PTI) Cupcake Collection, By The Numbers Collection, Heart Prints

Remember Shrinky Dinks?!

Well I've discovered something else that PTI dies will cut!  Shrinky Dinks!  I've made some adorable embellishments using the Beautiful Bloom dies.  I've included the die in the photo for size reference.  I think these will look so cute on a card or other paper project!

I used Hawaiian Shores, Lemon Tart, Hibiscus Burst, and Spring Rain ink.  The smallest three are simply colored with copics.

Dye ink doesn't work.  And for some reason the spring rain ink isn't drying all the way.  I could smudge it if I wanted.  But the others dried just fine.

So then I started getting curious how other dies would work! 

I punched a hole in the top of the Mat Stack 5 cut before I put it into the toaster oven so I would be able to tie some thread through it.  I think my daughter has claimed this one to add as a little charm onto her backpack!

The inks I used for these are from Martha Stewart.

Valentine Bookmarks

I'm finally getting around to posting these adorable bookmarks I made for my girls.  My husband got me a sewing machine for Christmas and this is the first project I've done mixing the sewing and paper.  I'm so pleased with how it turned out!

Supplies Used:
CS: pure poppy, lavender moon, clear

Paper: K&Company

Other: PTI bookmark die, DMC floss, Scor Tape

PTI Personal Favorite

This is an especially difficult task for me as I only use PTI products!  So having to go through all that I made this past year and choosing a favorite isn't easy!  I ultimately decided on a card I made for my mom.  I used  Flutterby Friend, a set that I won during its release.  The sentiment and dots are from Communique Curves Sentiments.  I used Prismacolor pencils to color the images.
