Who's Ready for Some New PTI?

I know that I am! I'm DEFINITELY getting Grid Lines, the new papers (inks, ribbon, too), and prolly the new bird set. Will have to see the whole flower set to know for sure, but it will all end up in my cart, I'm positive! LOL

Sorry for the inconsistent posts, folks! I'm still so out of whack d/t not having my regular desk top computer, and having to post on this laptop w/ NO watermarks, adequate photo editing software, and inaccurate screen colors. I'll get it all worked out. Just bear with me!

This is a cutie little card set that I made with the latest PTI release, Honey Bees. I made a set of 8, but after making them, I quickly figured out that only 4 will fit into the PTI card boxes if they have any more dimension on them than like one layer of Dimensionals. NO ribbon TIES or Dew Drops for sure! LOL

I was commissioned to make 3 card sets for the end of the year banquet for our MOMS Club. They needed to have 8 cards, so I had to scrap this one to use for someone else. I made a mid year resolution to make more of these card sets, to have on hand for bday gifts, etc... I also MAY start an Etsy shop to sell them, if I get some interest. You'll see the other three sets that I made in the next few days. All four have the same color scheme and are made with the same three or four sets. I wanted the sentiments to all be the same.

I used Polka Dot Basics for the bkgd, this sentiment came from Favor It Baby (the others are from Honey Bees), and the images all come from Honey Bees. There's Stickles in the flower centers and Dew Drops in the corner. I used the solid circle from Butterfly Kisses to fill in the bee bottom - a pretty ingenious idea, if I do say so myself! ;)

Well, that's about it. I will be back as soon as I can with another card set. Let me know what you're planning on getting from the PTI release tonight! Can't wait!

  1. Umm, yea! I have a list. Not likely thatt I will stick to it but it is there anyway. Grid lines for sure and the new paper and ink and either the flowers or the birds. Can't do both this month so have to decide. EEEKK, it is so hard to make up my mind. Have to see the full sets first. See you tonight. Great cards BTW. -Molly B

  2. Me too! :-) See you at the party later tonight! Yay! I want it all! We'll see how my fiance feels about that since we're trying to save for a wedding... maybe I'll just tell them it's for the invite. ;-)

    I didn't realize that you couldn't have too much dimension for the card boxes... so sad. But your cards are super cute!

  3. Love the cards. Bees seem to be very trendy right now.

  4. I love what you did with the 'circle bee'. I love that you cut out half a circle in the white card stock and then filled it with a whole circle that the bee is on. I'll have to try that. It is a great look.
