PTI Make it Monday #110 - Take 1

Hi there!  Well, this has been quite a week!  We have been on Spring Break all week and I have been super busy with the boys!  We have done lots of little things together, but those little things have been enough to wear me out.  I just love those guys!

Early in the week I watched the new MIM video from PTI.  It's all about Collage Elements.  I found the tutorial and card from Dawn McVey to be really inspiring and I couldn't wait to try the technique myself.  But first, I had to clean off my craft table which was quite a chore I tell you!  So, here's my first take on the challenge:

I figured this was a good chance to get a head start on teacher thank will be the end of the year before you know it!  I can't tell you how much I enjoyed playing with all of my stamps and coming up with a combo that worked well together.  I liked it so much I made three more cards!  Tune in to see!


Paper: PTI's White, Pure Poppy, True Black, Kraft
Stamps: PTI's It's Official, Polka Dot Basics II, Tag-Its #6 and one more I don't know the name of, sorry!
Ink: PTI's Aqua Mist, Pure Poppy, Classic Kraft, Harvest Gold, Smokey Shadow, Fresh Snow and Versamark
Dies: PTI's Limitless Circles 1.75"
Other: Zing white embossing powder


  1. Love this! Any teacher would be thrilled to receive this! (As well as anyone else.)

  2. Love this card! The teacher that gets this card is going to LOVE it too! Great take on the challenge!

  3. Fabulous card, Kate! I love the stamped background and how you did the chalkboard technique on the tag!

  4. This is a fabulous take on the collage challenge and a great idea to make a teacher thank you!

  5. I love both of the cards you made for MIM but my favorite is this teacher thank you.

  6. Super cute Kate!!! Love the simplicity of it! Perfect for the end of the year!

  7. Great card Kate!! I think your choice of stamps for this card is just perfect!! I love the clean look.
