Papertrey Ink and some fun!

OMGosh wasn't the Papertrey Ink party fun? It was such a pleasure meeting all of you in the forums and thank you so much for your kind words too. As you know I ADORE Nichole's work. She is such a source of inspiration and I love how she really "thinks" about her stamp sets before making them--like making them coordinate with product that we already own or have on our wish lists (BRILLIANT really!).
Have you purchased your new sets yet? Snowflake Serenade is so beautiful. I love the greetings and the elegant beauty of all those snowflakes. Seriously can a girl have enough snowflakes? And of course a girl can have her Piece of Cake and eat it too right? *smiles* Can hardly wait until they arrive.

Okay, so truth be told, behind EVERY card there is a creative MESS:

Yes that is right folks. Neat freak Alli is really a complete SLOB when it comes to crafting. I just clean it up before others can see it *lol* Oh I know there are more of you out there! It's a good thing, otherwise I might be feeling a little lonely right now. *wink* You should see me shaking my head at myself for admitting this to you *lol* Hey, nobody is perfect!

The other day I had 5 minutes...okay a little longer...but five minutes to make a card. Anyways I threw this together in 5 minutes and I think it took me about 10 minutes to clean up my mess. See even 5 minutes of free time can = a card. You can do it too!

paper: Whisper white, Chocolate chip (SU!)
Brillance Graphite Black (Tsukineko)
stamp set(s): Changito Swing and Hang in there (Stampendous purchased through Paper Pretties)
accessories: Scalloped Square Punches (Marvy), Copic Ciao Markers, Gingham Ribbon (AAM), Corner Rounder Punch (SU!)

Hey Alli,
Looks like the chaos on my craft table too! I haven't stamped in three days because I am too tired to clean up the mess! I love your monkey card! Very cute!

Rose Ann said...

Love your monkey card! It's adorable!

Bethany Paull said...

Love this! There are so few stamps / sentiments that express this thought.

Cheryl said...

Your mess is looking a lot better than mine. I posted mine a few weeks ago. Funny thing it still looks the same.That is probably because I just got 5 new sets in the mail the last 2 days.

Great 5 minute card.
