Happy Wednesday!  I had a chance to get crafty today.  I am using some of my new PTI goodies.  For my first card I am playing along with Simon Says Monday Challenge.  No Ordinary Paper.  I chose to use some mirrored gold card stock.  Simon Says Wednesday Challenge.  Anything Goes!



I started with PTI stampers select base.  I die cut a ripe avocado panel.  I layered a linen die cut stitched rectangle.  I stamped and layered the Center Style:  Feminine die over the linen panel.  I layered a gold die cut doily die.  I grouped my Bitty Bouquets to the right of the gold doily.  I stamped and added the "Hello" from Graceful Greetings.   I finished with a few gold sequins.   



 For my second card I am playing along with this week's PTI Make It Monday Challenge.  The challenge is "texture kissing" technique.   I am also playing along with this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch.  I turned the sketch.


 
For my card I started with PTI stamper select white for card base.  I die cut royal velvet panel using PTI stitched rectangles. I die cut a pierced circle out of the center.  I layered the royal velvet panel using foam mounting tape.  I die cut another pierced circle using snow white linen card stock.  I stamped this circle with Watercolor Wonder stamping off once with aqua mist for a very subtle background.  I stamped the sentiment from Flower Favorites.  



I die cut Flower Favorites Iris flower.  I stamped the stems using spring moss and simply chartreuse inks.  I decided to use the texture kissing technique on the flower itself.  I inked the flower ins summer sunrise and kissed the small dotted background from Polka Dot Basics II.  I love how it turned out.  I decided to just use the technique on the summer sunrise petals.  I stamped the raspberry fizz normally.  I love the contrast of textures.  I finished the card with a few clear sequins.

As always thanks so much for stopping by!

Happy Saturday!  I have a card to share.  I am playing along with July's Papertrey Ink's Blog Hop! 


 





I really love all the rich colors and textures.  I saw among all of those beautiful butterflies lots of floral patterns.  I used my new PTI Vintage Linens set and the Scripted Sentiments stamp sets to create the vintage vibe.  I did not forget the butterfly, though.  I added a gold one.  I finished the card with a few gold sequins.



As always thanks so much for stopping by!

 Happy Friday!  I had some time to get crafty today!  I am playing along with this week's MFT Sketch Challenge, MFT Color Challenge, Simon Says Monday "I" Challenge, I chose ink blending. and Simon Wednesday Challenge to sparkle and shine.  



I started with MFT smooth white cardstock base.  I die cut another smooth white panel using Blueprints 20.  For the focal image I die cut smooth white and steel gray with rectangle pierce stax.  I white embossed a sentiment from True Friends and Smile stamp sets. 



I ink blended using MFT ripe raspberry, jellybean green, and limelight inks.  I added the word "smile" die cut from Blueprints 15 using mirror gold card stock.  I die cut the scribbles using the same mirror gold card stock for my corner accenting.  I felt like the card needed a few more gold touches, but sequins were too busy looking.  I chose to die cut a pierced snowflake die namics using the same mirror gold card stock and used the tiny gold chads as my tiny accenting.  I love how it turned out. 

As always thanks so much for stopping by!

I have a card to share today!  I am playing along with PTI Make It Monday  watercolor Stencil challenge.




Since I did not have repositional paper available, I die cut the larger fern leaf from PTI Meadow Greens using one of the PTI coasters for a thicker stencil.  I thought this would soak up some excess water.  I used watercolor paper and watercolored the leaf using the die cut stencil portion.  I do not think it is crisp by any means, but I love the free flowing look to the edges so I decided to work with it.
 



I gold embossed the smaller fern leaf in the set using versamark.  I love how it looks layered on the watercolor paper and image.  Next,  I die cut  a rectangle from Fabulous Frames dies and white embossed the sentiment from Scripted stamp set.  I finished my card with some loose threading and gold sequins.  I like how it turned out.  It has a bit of a masculine vibe to me.  What do you think?



I am also playing along with a few other blog challenges. 
CASE this Sketch,  CAS-ual Fridays,(embossing) Inkspirational (kraft), and Sweet Stampin'  (no designer papers)challenges.

Happy Saturday!  We had a thunderstorm this afternoon which brought some much needed rain.  It was a great time to get crafty.  I am popping in with a card.  I am playing along with this week's Colour Q and 
Seize the Birthday Challenges.  


For my card I decided to do a watercolor background.  I started with some watercolor paper.  I added the colors and flicked some of the colors around for a spotted affect.  I really love how it turned out.  I sat at my kitchen table and colored several different panels.  It was very calming and relaxing. 



I let the panel dry and die cut it with Blueprints 13 and used some foam mounting tape to adhere to the smooth white card base.  I die cut the feathers from gold foil card stock using MFT Feathers and Arrows die namics.



 This picture shows the sheen with the gold foiled card stock.
 I added some foam tape to the feathers and added some loose threading behind.  For the sentiment, I die cut a piece of black card stock using Blueprints 23 and embossed in white the Birthday sentiment from Whimsical Wishes stamp set.   I finished my card with a few clear sequins.  







As always thanks so much for stopping by!
