Make It Monday: Layering pigment and dye inks

Today's Make It Monday video is about stamping over Pigment ink with dye ink.  Worked well, but you really need big stamped areas to pick up the pattern of the stamped pigment ink.  Of course, it had to be a baby card!

About the baby cards- as the hospital's birth rate hd dropped a wee bit, I am only making 9 baby cards per week instead of 10, lol lol lol!!
 Stamps:  PTI Watercolor and Flourishes, Studio G sentiment
Inks: Fresh Snow, Hibiscus Burst, Berry Sorbet, Raspberry Fizz, Smokey Shadow
Paper:  PTI Stamper's Select, Smokey Shadow, SU's Pretty in Pink
Embellishment:  Recollections Rhinestone Swirl

Playing with Papertrey: Timed Challenge

Today's PTI challenge was to select 7 items within 7 minutes, then create a card within 17 minutes- Here's what I came up with!
My 7 items:     
  1. Aqua Mist paper     
  2. dotted AM printed paper     
  3. gingham AM printed paper     
  4. Versafine Black Onyx ink     
  5. Bitty Baby Blessings stamp set     
  6. Sky Blue Spica Pen     
  7. Spellbinders die
The glue was 'free', lol!

I think we were working with 'picnic rules', since the card had to be cut with some kind of tool, and the sentiment was cut apart with scissors. For me, both of those things were done prior to today,so I ignored them in the count-
Sorta like the deserted island question, eh?

Playing Baby with Make It Monday

I am happy to be back in the swing of playing with Papertrey. I never stopped making baby cards for the hospital, I just didn't show them to you- I wasn't able to see the entire video today (issues with wobbly WIFI), but I think I got the drift.

All products are Papertrey except for the Cuttlebug folder.

I didn't layer up the tiny 'baby' words, they were too small. I only layered up the plane and trail. I hand cut the clouds from PTI felt. Oh, and the coloring was done with Spica pens.
