Make It Monday #34 (Part 2)

I did promise you another MIM card yesterday so here it is!

It's another one with By the Numbers chipboard. I made the die-cut and then stamped it over with *drum rolls* PTI Half & Half stamp set! I love how it turned out with the SU! Calypso Coral ink pad! It just looks so summery! In fact, it reminded me of those bikinis they used to sell at the shops here last summer! lol

Someone was also selling PTI Star Prints on our auction site here in NZ last week, so I went and snatched it before anyone else did (how could I not???)! I thought it might look nice with the numbers as an extra accent on the card.

I must admit that the new SU! In Color is great. I only got these two colours in my recent SU! order but I love how the Calypso Coral and Pool Party are going together (very happy with my choice)! They make a very summery and fun match.

I also Mod Podged my numbers and stars just to add a bit of gloss to them. The numbers were looking a bit dull (actually the photo's making the colours brighter than they actually are) and I didn't want to ruin the colours with glitter. So I grabbed out the (Gloss) Mod Podge hiding in my room.

I think I'll be using the Half & Half stamp set more with my die cuts now... totally thrilled with the results :D Thanks for poppin' by again!
STAMP: PTI Half & Half, Star Prints

Love this card. Those numbers and stars look so good together. I never thought of using the half and half stamps on anything but the half and half dies, but you have shown me how great they can look elsewhere. I had been feeling a bit disappointed, because those stamps weren't long enough for most of my die cuts, and were a waste of money. Well, not anymore! Well done!

Another great numbers card - and those colours are gorgeous. Think you've just "enabled" me to add those number dies to my next order!
