More PTI Building Blocks

Hello everyone!! I hope you are all having a fabulous morning.

On Sunday I promised to post a couple more cards I created using Paper Trey Ink's "Building Blocks" set. Can I say that I LOVE this set? It is so easy to create quick cards with.

The first card I created was a birthday card. I die cut pieces of scraps into strips using the matching "Building Blocks" dies. I then the matching stamps to stamp on the first three strips and a mixture of stamps for the sentiments on the last two. I then used foam adhesive to adhere the strips to a white card front.



Next, I used a cup cake from the WPlus9 set "Sweets and Treats" that I had lying around on my desk. Lately I have been die cutting and coloring little pieces like this so I can make quick cards if I need them.


I added some orange Stickles to make sprinkles on the cup cake. My last step was to adhere different colored sequins randomly on the card. I love the way this looks and will be using this design again.

My next card, I used the same basic layout as the card I created on Sunday. Instead of using it as a "friendship" card, I used the same sentiment but made a graduation card. (I told you I had graduation on the brain this week!!)


I die cut, stamped and adhered the sentiment to my white card base using foam adhesive. Next I adhered the hat and then the silver star die cuts. My last step was to adhere the sequins.


It is such a simple card but I LOVE the way it looks!! I think this sentiment is perfect for a graduation card too. Inside I stamped "Happy Graduation" but I was too lazy to get a photo. Sorry.

I thank you for looking today. Have a great day!!

GREAT job with the building block set. I love the sequins popping out from behind. I've put your cards in my inspiration files since I have that set but just haven't managed to do anything fun with it.
