Fly Away!

Hey peeps!  Long time, no blogging.  We've had a very busy month.  My inlaws were in town, and then my husband got short-notice deployment orders, and now everyone (but me, yet) has a stomach bug.  But amidst all of this chaos, I got my new PTI goodies yesterday.  I couldn't resist one of the newest mini sets- Fly Away.  This set is so so so cute.  And to top it off- it's only 5 bucks.  Really.  PTI, how do you do it?

We all have problems with masculine cards.  After we get past the baby stage with light blue and bows we tend to get a little stuck.  This month's release at PTI solved that issue.  Fly Away features 2 plane images- one for paper piecing/coloring, and the other for solid inking.  It also has a banner that the plane can "tow" and 4 sentiments that fit inside the banner.  And again, all of this for only $5.

For my card today I chose the line art plane.  The plane is colored with copics (B41, B45, Y35, R29, R59, T1, T4, T6, W5.)  Then I cut it out, mounted it with mini pop dots onto the background piece.  I made the background using a piece of white cardstock, masked it with hand cut clouds, and inked it up.  I added some Pink Paislee 365 patterned paper, some My Mind's Eye button, a sentiment, and some PTI ribbon, and viola!  A very cute card for a boy.

Thanks for stopping by, have a crafty day!

  11. OMG Danielle! We must be on the same wavelength, because I made a card SO incredibly similar to this last night! SAME EXACT color scheme only I have polka dots where you have stripes. Too weird! I scheduled my post to go live tomorrow, but maybe I'll email it to you when I get home so you can see how crazy they are alike.
