CPS & PTI

We are having a lot of fun at the CPS blog this week, and all brought to you by some of the February new releases from PTI!  We were sent three stamp releases of the month, and they are all just fabulous!!  You will see multiple cards by each designer all week long.  So, you are going to see a lot of new PTI on my blog this week!  It should be fun!  Just to let you know...there is a giveaway going on this week at the CPS blog like normal....a lovely PTI prize.  BUT, Nichole is also having a giveaway on her blog as well that coincides with it....so make sure you head over to her blog as well!!

This first one is based on this this week's sketch, CPS 153.  It uses a new release from PTI called "Year of the Flowers: Violets".  I think this set makes for really fabulous encouragement cards.  And who doesn't need a little encouraging every once in awhile?   
   "With Faith" supplies:
Stamps/Paper/Ribbon/Button: Papertrey Ink
Cardstock/Floss: Bazzill Basics
Paper Frill/Glitter/Jewels: Doodlebug Designs
Ink: Clearsnap (Watermark & Pigment: moss green, evergreen)
Embossing Powder/Stickles: Ranger Industries (eggplant)
Corner Rounder: EK Success 

Instructions:  Fold purple cardstock in half to make card base, and round the bottom corners.  Add purple paper frill to a strip of green patterned paper, and round the bottom corners.  Adhere to the bottom of the card.  Round the top corners of a block of white cardstock, and adhere to the front.  Tie ribbon around the seam, and sew a button around the ribbon using purple floss.  Heat emboss the two violet stamps to purple cardstocks and cut out.  Fill in the specific areas using Zig glue writer, and cover with purple glitter.  Stamp the leaves on green patterned paper and cut out.  Adhere all the pieces to the front, making the top flower and the leaves dimensional.  Accent the leaves with Stickles.

I also whipped up this card today using two of the new PTI sets, "Dot Spot" & "Asian Fusion".  Oh how I love both of these sets.  Dot Spot just brings out the clean and simple cardmaker in me, and Asian Fusion has some of THE best sentiments.  (Please note that the stars are not from a PTI set)  This card is based on this week's 365 Cards: Super Sketchy Sunday, and on SP Color Combo #33 (summer sun, real red, pink passion, tempting turquoise). 
"Birthday Wishes" supplies:
Cardstock: Bazzill Basics 
Paper/Jewels: Doodlebug Designs
Stamps: Papertrey Ink & Kitchen Sink
Ink: Clearsnap (Pigment: canary, scarlet, razzberry, surf, black)
Corner Rounder: EK Success
Border Punch: Fiskars

Instructions:  Cover a white cardbase with turquoise flocked paper, and round the bottom corners.  Stamp the stars, dots, and sentiment to a white paper block.  Round the bottom corners of the block, and adhere to the front.  Punch a border to yellow dotted paper, and adhere to a thin strip of pink cardstock.  Adhere to the top of the white block with dimensional adhesive.  Accent the middle of the stamped dots with jewels. 

I really hope that you chose to play along with us at CPS this week!  You will have a chance to win these new releases from PTI, and they are really fabulous to work with!  It is a prize you definitely want, I promise! ♥

So, do you have any fun Superbowl plans?  We are heading over to a friend's house...there will be six of us adults and some childrens....should be a fun time!!  Lots of good food, football, and commercials!!  Not to mention...time with friends!  Speaking of....I better get going!  I need to finish getting ready!  Talk to you soon! ♥

Until later,
~Lea
