Super fun new stuff!

Usually when I get a PTI order in, I rip right into it and put it all away and stare at it for awhile and then make something. This time....well it sat. Really, I got it a couple days ago so it hasn't sat that long but its not my usual. Today, I finally had a chance to put some stuff away and seeing that new Circle die made me remember all those cards I "built" in my head the first time I saw it during sneak peeks! SO, I had to get to work! That is all it took for my mojo to return...doesn't always work that way! :)

So here are a couple cards I whipped up tonight!

I am totally in love with this new die as it has SO many possibilities! You could fill those circles with flowers, buttons, brads, butterflies (which I have started already!), prima flowers...the list goes on! For this card I used one of the Love Lives Here dies and it fits perfectly in the larger circles!

If you look real close you can see a tiny little black pearl in each heart!

On to the next card...

I stamped each button with the Newsprint set and then tied floss in each button! I adhered them with a glue dot for a tiny bit of dimension! I masked of the "friend" from the new Think Big sentiments and stamped that most LOVELY "hello"! I do love that font! OH and some wood grain...can't go wrong with that IP!

So that is it for today! I know you will be seeing some more of this die SOON! LOVE!

Have a fantastic Friday!

My head is buzzing with all the different looks you'll be able to get with this die - I can tell my credit card is starting to feel itchy in my purse!

Love the design Laurie. I'm getting that die so I'll be turning to this post for some inspiration! Just got to wait a bit longer until my parcel gets to the UK. Hopefully by the end of the month. Oh and the green on the second card - yummy!

Your cards are just beautiful! I am in love with that green...swoon. I love how the love lives here die and button dies fit in those circles. Versatility is what I love best about PTI's designs...so many of their sets work together! Thanks for sharing.

Oy!! Each and every one of these knocks my socks off!! And dang it - I did NOT order that die . . . *sigh* . . . off to add it to next month's order. LOL

Diane Jaquay said...

These are both FABULOUS, Laurie! I fear my PTI order may be lost because I still haven't received it, and I ordered that die and cannot WAIT to get it!

Happy Easter to you and your family!
