Incredible You- A Mix and Match with Photo Play Paper

Happy Monday, Crafty Friends!
And happy first day of spring!

Today I have another card to share for the fun new challenge feature over at Photo Play Paper, the Mix and Match Challenge. To play along, simply pull out your Photo Play collection kits, and mix and match them into unique, one-of-a-kind creations, like my card here that combines the bohemian Rhapsody collection with the summer travel line, Boarding Pass.

This month’s contest is open until March 28th. To enter, share your card creation with us on our Facebook page and tag us on IG using the hashtag #audreymarchmixandmatch for a chance to win a collection pack of your choice. Hope you join in on the fun!

Thanks so much for stopping by! Hope you all had a wonderful weekend! I think we made a final college decision, which is very exciting here in our house. And I’ve been working away on some new additions for my shop, and think I’m finally ready for the grand opening of my spring shop. Be sure to check out my AudOnes Prims Facebook page throughout the week for sneak peek previews and all the details.

A Mix and Match Challenge at Photo Play Paper

Today my friends at Photo Play Paper are launching a cool new feature and a little challenge… a Mix and Match challenge. And I hope you’ll come play along. Simply break out your Photo Play Paper collections, and mix and match them to create unique, one-of-a-kind card creations. Easy Peasy, right?

This sweet card mixes two of Photo Play’s newest collections, Rhapsody and French Flea Market. If you’re on PPP’s email list, you already saw this mix and match card, and another rather unexpected one, in your inbox this morning. If not, be sure to sign up so you don’t miss out on the latest news,  free cutting files, printables, and step-by-step instructions for projects like these.

Photo Play is giving away a collection pack of your choice to the lucky winner of our new Mix and Match Challenge. To play along, we invite you to post your creations on our Facebook page and Instagram (#audreymarchmixandmatch). Be sure to post a comment and/or an image of your challenge card on our corresponding Facebook post for your chance to win a collection pack of your choice! We will draw a random winner on Tuesday, March 28, 2017.

I can’t wait to see what you all create!
Happy mixing and matching!

The Best Day with Therm O Web & Carta Bella

Hello, hello! Happy Monday, and Happy Labor Day, my friends!

AudreyPettit Thermoweb CartaBella RusticEleganceBestDayCardThis past week, the Therm O Web team partnered up with our friends at Carta Bella to share a week of inspiration showcasing projects featuring Therm O Web adhesives and foils along with Carta Bella’s beautiful Rustic Elegance collection. I shared the first of my projects with you on Friday, and today I am back with a few more things to share.

AudreyPettit Thermoweb CartaBella RusticEleganceBestDayCard2I love the soft color palette in this collection, and the pretty prints, too. And although Rustic Elegance is a wedding collection, I think it works for so much more, like my Best Day card here.

AudreyPettit Thermoweb CartaBella RusticEleganceBestDayCard3Just in time for Halloween this year, Therm O Web is releasing another new color to their iCraft Deco Foil line…. black. I added some texture and shine to the center of my fussy cut flower using the new black foil and the deco foil liquid adhesive. I’ve shared the how-to’s on the Therm O Web blog, if you’d like to learn more.

And since Rustic Elegance has some of the cutest mason jar images out there, and I can’t resist a good mason jar…. I’ve made a couple of quick tags to finish things off.

AudreyPettit Thermoweb CartaBella RusticEleganceTags2
Simple and easy! Just a few fussy cut jars and labels, topped with heart stickers, and tied up with twine string.

Donut You Know? with My Creative Time

Hello Sweeties, and happy Monday! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend and Mother’s Day! This week I am super excited to be joining in on the fun over at My Creative Time for their 43rd Edition release. Today is day one of sneak peeks, and I think you all are going to love this month’s release, celebrating all things sweet and birthday in honor of Emma’s birthday month.

AudreyPettit MCT BetterTogether DonutYouKnow
This is the adorable new We’re Better Together stamp set and coordinating dies. Dontcha love that fun coffee cup and donut and puny sentiment? Just makes me smile, and as a huge lover of all things coffee (and donuts, of course), this new set is right up my alley.

AudreyPettit MCT BetterTogether DonutYouKnow2
I paired the new We’re Better Together set with the previously released Bunch of Fun Circle dies to create a cute watercolor shabby shaped card. So quick and easy to do, and a really fun alternative to the standard card base.

AudreyPettit MCT BetterTogether DonutYouKnow3
I used Distress inks to watercolor the background in one of my all-time favorite color combos, blue and brown, and then pulled out an older My Mind’s Eye 6×6 paper pad to match. The scalloped circular frame was die cut from the patterned paper using the two largest Bunch of Fun Circle dies nested. The coffee cup and donut were then paper pieced from complementary prints. Blue frosting? You betcha!

AudreyPettit MCT BetterTogether DonutYouKnow4
I added some shading to the coffee cup with a very light wash of watercolor Distress. The patterned paper is thin, but with a gentle touch you can add color without warping. The donut was more heavily inked using an ink blending tool, and then stippled with water droplets. I coated the frosting die cut with several layers of clear embossing powder, after stamping with the coordinating sprinkles stamp. Love that bit of frosting shine.

Be sure to stop by the My Creative Time blog to see lots more fun sneak peek projects, including a second new set being revealed today. And interested in a chance to win?

Hello Awesome with BasicGrey



Hi everyone! I have a couple of Easter card ideas up on the BasicGrey blog today, and I wanted to share the first of them here with you, too.

AudreyPettit BG Prism HelloAwesomeCard2Both are made with the fabulous new Prism collection, and although not specifically a themed line, the bright pastel colors in Prism are absolutely perfect for spring cards. Pair that with a few favorite dies, and you have a fun Easter look in no time.

AudreyPettit BG Prism HelloAwesomeCard4Don’t you just love that big ol’ bunny? Such a great die cut, that you really don’t need much else. I added a quick knot of trim and a few tiny flowers, and my bunny is good to go. Absolutely love how he looks, nestled amongst that beautiful Hello Frame die from My Creative Time’s February release. I inked just the hello portion of the die cut with pink Distress, and layered it onto a Stitched 3×4 Journal die cut for a perfect fit.

AudreyPettit BG Prism HelloAwesomeCard3Thanks so much for stopping by! Today is a wonderful day! The girls and I are going to be trying our hand at paper mache in a little bit, then later today…. my boy is coming home for spring break! Yippee! Hope you all have a wonderful day, too!
