Paper Trey Ink Make It Monday A La Carte Challenge Entry #1

Hello everyone!! I hope you all had as nice of a holiday as I have had. It was fun being with family and then having a few days of relaxing with just the three of us. I have been busy cleaning up my craft room and in between creating a few cards for some challenges. My room still isn't as clean as I want it to be but I get distracted by all the pretty things I find and it causes me to want to play. Work/play-I picked play!!

Today I am going to post THREE different times because I created cards for three different challenges. Yes, I go from not posting anything to flooding it through. That is me in a nut shell as of late, though. It is either feast or famine!!

The first card I am going to post is for this weeks Paper Trey Ink's Make it Monday challenge A La Carte. You were to pick any MIM technique that they have shown over the year and create a project using that technique.

For this card I used MIM #99-Repeats and Rainbows technique. Basically it was to pick a fun color scheme and use it on a project. I used the color scheme below for my card:

 

I knew when I saw this challenge that I would use my new Happy Hearts stamp set and Cover plate that I received right before Christmas. I was kind of bad about ordering things for myself this year. Shhh, don't tell!!


I first die cut the hearts out of white card stock and then stamped over the hearts with PTI ink. I was going to just tuck the hearts back inside where they were cut from and layer it over the card but I decided to go a step further. I put the negative die cut cover plate over a white card, lightly penciled in hearts for placement and then stamped the hearts again with the various colors and patterns.



I then layered the die cut over the stamped hearts and popped some of them off with foam tape to give the card dimension. Next I stamped and trimmed the sentiment and layered that on to the card using a slightly thinker foam adhesive. My last step was to add the sequins.

Though this card took me a bit of time, I love how it came out. I will be making a couple more like it to keep in my stash. I will also stamp the inside too but will do it at a later time when I know who I want to send it too.

Thank you for looking!! I hope you will read my other posts today as well for the next cards!!

This card turned out great. The rainbow of colors is so cheerful and the raised hearts adds interest.
