MIM #119

I just love Monday mornings! For one reason only (who actually likes Monday mornings?). And that is the Papertrey Ink "Make It Monday" videos. I love learning new techniques and watching the designers use their stamps, or inks, or dies, in new and exciting ways.

This week's video is by my favorite designer, Dawn McVey. She is teaching how to create a card with a flag boarders focal point. Love it! And so easy! I see me making a lot of these cards in the future. Click here for the blog and to see the video.

Here is my card.

I just got the Hello Sunshine stamp set and die set. I know right, what took me so long. I was so excited to make my first sunburst! It took a few times to get it right, but I love the effect it has in the background. And of course the sentiment is amazing from that set. You can see in my flags that a couple sunburst dies made it in.


  1. Happy, bright results! Carissa, just between you and me, I find myself playing catchup with PTI stamps every month. Endless must haves! The great upside is the amazing versatility of the combos that you create! Love the 'sunshine' of your card!

  2. Love the background sunshine and waving flags - fab card.

  3. Great combination of sunshine and banners. Lovely!

  4. Gorgeous and I would say this happy card will be sending lots of sunshine! Love it!


I just love reading all your comments! Thank you!
