My turn at the PTI Mid-Week Hostess Challenge

Yep!  You guessed it….MORE quilt cardz!  🙂

The challenge I’ve come up with this time is to use ANY of the PTI Quilt stamps to make a Valentine’s Day card!   

I apologize ahead of time for the length of this post….I got carried away again and made THREE cardz!       

Here’ my first (and favorite) sample:

Love you FOREVER

Love you FOREVER

I really had fun with this one!  The hearts and sentiment are from the PTI Heart Prints set.  The outline image stamped on the off white paper is the large blank quilt square from the Quilter’s Sampler Additions.  The background DP is from the AWESOME new Bittersweet collection by Basic Grey.

I was pretty excited to have the ribbon in my stash….it seemed to match perfectly!  (it’s from Michael’s by American Crafts premium ribbon)

For my second card I used the Log Cabin quilt square stamp from the Quilter’s Sampler set and the sentiment is from the Quilter’s Sampler Sentiments …all from PTI

The DP is by the Paper Patch and has tiny little white hearts on it, if you squint, you might be able to see them!  🙂

The stick-on heart attached to the sentiment was orignally pink, but was colored with a red Copic to match the DP;  the white ribbon as well was colored with a black Copic ~ which worked out really well.  (having a streak of luck with ribbons today… until the next card!)

For the third card, I wanted to make something a little simpler….I used the heart quilt square stamp from Quilter’s Sampler Additions, colored with Copics and mounted with dimensionals.  I also used the Swiss Dots CB for the white cs background and actually had a dotted CB frame folder that fit perfectly around the larger blank quilt stamp.  The sentiment is computer generated.

    Oh Mom! Those are all just beautiful!! I love how the black really makes everything pop out on the second one! And the multiple squares on the third really is dynamic! So, when did Hallmark say you were supposed to start designing cards for them …?

  3. You are so creative, Mary! I especially like the card where you created your own hear in the pattern. Beautiful job, all the way around!
