PTI-SAF- 10th Anniversary Tradition- Tin & Aluminum! Take 2!

Hi Blog Friends!

I'm here with my very last post for the
 2017 PTI- Stamp-a-Faire!

I was wondering if I could keep up & get all of the challenges done.
They don't call these "challenges" for nothing! LOL
I am HAPPY to inform you, 
I have completed ALL of the challenges given! 

So, keeping this short & sweet like all of my other posts..... ;)

The challenge:
Create a project featuring Gilding Flakes.
You can find out more about this challenge on the PTI Blog here:

The host for this challenge?
Carissa Wiley
I have been wanting to try this technique, but hadn't gone there yet!
Thank You to PTI for taking me out of my comfort zone!
I was SO TICKLED AGAIN with the results!
I thought I would do a "Thank You" Card for ALL of the ladies over at PTI,
 that had a hand in the 
2017 PTI-  Stamp-a-faire, 
to let them know just how much I appreciated all of their work for us!
I created an ombre background with Oxide Inks, gave it a spritz of water,
 & I tried the technique that Carissa suggested, 
using Sticky Embossing Powder. 
 I also created a silver edge on the piece I matted behind the main piece,
swiping my Versa Mark Ink Pad over the edges & adding Sticky Embossing Powder.....
After doing this on a white card base, I thought it would show up better on a dark background:
I think if I did this again,
 I would put it on a dark blue card base! 
I LOVE the dark background with this!
I used:
PTI- Cover Ups: Diamonds, & Thank You Kindly.
I am Ever Grateful to PTI for the WONDERFUL week of creating,


  1. Very pretty! I'm hoping to try that technique as well. Your card turned out fabulous!


Thank you for stopping by, I enjoy hearing from you & hope to see you again soon!
