PTI Make It Monday #105: Glitter Trim

Howdy Bloggers & Bloggettes! Hope this week is treating you well! I'm trying to squeeze in as much crafting and challenges as I can before the my baby boy #3 arrives in a few weeks. I know that I will be beautifully distracted by him and his brothers for a while, so a crafting/blogging hiatus is inevitable. ;) I wanted to go for a different look for the glitter trim challenge and try my hand at a more modern look. Is anyone else longing for PTI to come out with a mix of super bright, modern colors that are so popular in fashion right now? And a pretty mint? A girl can dream. Lol. I've been pinning color inspiration boards on Pinterest and it has made SUCH a difference in helping me with my cards when I need to be fast. No more staring at my cardstock, wondering what on earth to pair together for the feel I want. I can just look through my board for inspiration! The inspiration board I used for this card is shown below. The link on Pinterest doesn't show you the board (hate when that happens) but here it is anyway:
Do you look for inspiration before you start your crafting? Card sketches? Pinterest? Your surroundings? Or are you a "from scratch" crafter? Thanks for stopping by!

All products used are PTI unless otherwise noted.

  1. Very cute! Very modern! I do both from scratch and with inspiration, although very rarely do I have the inspiration piece in front of me. I usually make little sketches or notes and use those when I'm stamping. Usually. :)

  2. Your modern take card looks fab.

  3. Another stunner. And I second the vote for mint! :)
