Make It Monday #62: Step It Up: Layering & The Play Date Cafe Challenge #128

This week I combined Papertrey's Make It Monday #62 with The Play Date Cafe's Challenge #128. The week's Make it Monday video was done by Betsy Veldman.   She demonstrated how to take a basic card and transform it into a fabulous layered sensation.  I have not used my Rosie Posie stamp set a lot and never with the die cuts that accompany them.


On my original one layer card I was able to use the generational stamping technique that was demonstrated in Make It Monday #60 by Ashley Cannon Newell and this week by Betsy Velman.


For my stepped up card I added some Raspberry Fizz Patterned paper with a scalloped top border using a strip die cut from the Hearts Border die, Mat Stack 1 and Layerz Mat Stack 1 and Rosie Posie stamped on to the co-ordinating die cuts and adhered with foam dimensional tape and squares.




All Supplies are from Papertrey Ink unless otherwise noted:

Cardstock: White, Raspberry Fizz, Orange Zest
Patterned Paper: Raspberry Fizz Paper Pack
Stamps: Rosie Posie, Mat Stack 1, Think Big Favourites #13
Ink: Raspberry Fizz, Orange Zest, Green Leaf, Tuxedo Black Memento (Tsukineko)
Dies: Rosie Posie, Hearts Border, Mat Stack 1, Layerz Mat Stack 1 
other: foam tape, foam squares

GREAT job on both challenges Tracey! Your basic card is so pretty and your layered version is simply elegant. I need to add the orange zest ink to my next order...it's the prettiest orange ink I've seen!!

I'm all about a great CAS card. I love both cards...but I have to say the pop of those pink stipes is great. That's the one color I didn't get. Looks like it will be added to my next order.

I think they both look great. I love the one layer. The second card is gorgeous, I guess a few more layers is even better. The stripes and colors are beautiful! I never had time for this one.

I'm back!!! And I'm so far behind I may never get caught up, but I wanted to be sure to let you know how much I have enjoyed the cards you have made since I last visited. You have really been turning out some outstanding work!!! Totally loved the way you did the bold colors in the cQc card; the lavender and pale green coffee cup card (Color Throwdown) is such a perfect CAS card (you do them SO well!); your "Apple of my Eye" card is so cute, it makes me want that set (that happens a lot when I see your cards!); the "Opposites Attract" card is yet another perfect CAS take on the challenge! And I LOVE how you have paired the hexagons from Rosie Posie (hey--I could try that!) with the rickrack die cut! Then the darling CAS-ual Fridays card with the cute little frames, and this set of cards using Rosie Posie--great job on the challenges! Just love Rosie Posie done in these bold colors. Thanks for brightening my day!

What a bright fun card. I like both versions. I wish I had time to do one of these--they really look like they were a lot of fun. Those colors look really wonderful together, and with the Rosie Posie set.

Both cards are very pretty. ;-) I'm a sucker for clean and simple, so I love the first one, but the second is just as lovely. Nice work!

Arlene said...

Such beautiful cards Tracey! I can't decide which one I like best, they are both beautiful. :)
