PTI's Make it Monday #27

  My largest order ever from PTI arrived yesterday.  Wohoo!  It was so fun opening up the box and putting together all my new stamp sets, including the beautiful Iconic Images.   I was waiting for the delivery to finish up my MIM #27 entry, another note pad.  This is going to be part of a set that I am making as a hostess gift for a friend. 

  It all started with this little hat.  I had this idea to make a little straw hat using the burlap that I had mod podged.  I used this stamp from SU's Garden from the Heart set.   Luckily when I stamped it on the burlap the flowers lying across the hat didn't show up. Wasn't quite sure how I was going to deal with them.  So I cut the hat out added some brown Copic around the edges to define it and added some tiny silk ribbon I had around it.

 The ribbon matched perfectly to PTI's Blueberry Sky so that became part of my color scheme along with Ripe Avacado , Kraft and Brown. Besides the SU stamps and an old Judith Stamps grass this is all PTI.  I used my new Garden Variety and Little Labels stamps and dies.

here are a few more details:

 I die cut the Mat Stack die #3 twice, once in kraft and once in Blueberry Sky.  I trimmed the Kraft one down a bit to add the BS frame.  Stamped with BB Tin Types.

 This shot shows some of my MIM twill.  I had a little trouble with this part.  I knew I wanted to used the tools but couldn't figure out how to place them.  I was happy with my idea to hang them from the twill.

 Alittle more of my MIM twill and my new Picket Fence die.  I ran my Kraft paper thru my CB with the woodgrain IP.  Then I lightly rubbed the die cut pieces onto my brown ink pad.  I also added a little clear crackle glaze.  Those are actually some tiny little eyelets, I have had forever, I used on the fence.  They are impossible to set so I just kind of taped them from the back.  That is why they are sticking out a little.

I am really happy with how this turned out.  
I will post the coordinatling cards and gift set when they are done.
Thanks for visiting.
See you soon,

Okay, I totally love how it looks like the garden tools are hanging from the ribbon, just waiting to be taken off the wall and put to work! Fabulous!
