Happy Saturday!  I had a chance to get crafty today!  I have been on spring break all week and it has been very busy busy!  A lot going on with planning for the move. 

I have a card to share today using some new goodies from Papertrey Ink.  I was trying not to buy anything, and I have not for a long while because it is just MORE STUFF to move.  I caved!  I felt I had to  have something new just to jumpstart my dormant mojo!  

I am playing along with this week's Make It Monday Challenge.  This week we are to add a background pattern behind a cut out frame.  I chose to go with a textured embossing folder background.  This is an oldie, but goodie folder.   I am also playing along with this rotation of the Fusion Card Challenge.  I just love the inspiration photo with the beautiful spray of florals.





I started with a white cardstock that I embossed.  The truck color looked alittle like ocean tides so I chose that color for the layered frame.  I chose the smaller triangle from PTI Basic Banners set.  I then inked and die cut the flowers and leaves from Gran's Garden stamp set and dies.  





I used hibiscus burst, ripe raspberry, pure poppy, melon berry, scarlet jewel, ocean tide, and simply chartreuse inks.  I added a sentiment from Bold Blossoms stamp set stamped in versafine onyz black.  I finished my card with a few clear sequins.


As always thanks so much for stopping by!

It's time for a new Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge!






The LEAD of this challenge will be invited to be a guest designer in an upcoming challenge!








I started with a white card base.    I added a cut out oval gingham patterned paper over a linen cardstock layer.that so that the linen pattern could be seen through the oval. I used some foam tape between the layers. 




I stamped several of the smaller tulips in PTI Tulip Time stamp set.  I used green parakeet and new leaf for the leaves.   For flower color combinations I used hibiscus burst with raspberry fizz, harvest gold and bright buttercup, and lovely lady with hibiscus burst.  I arranged the flowers inside the oval cut out.  I added a sentiment in versafine onyx black using the Tag Sale Quilted sentiment strip.  The sentiment comes from PTI Keep It Simple Encouragement.  I finished my card with a few clear sequins. I am using the sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch!

It's time for a new Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge!






The LEAD of this challenge will be invited to be a guest designer in an upcoming challenge!









For my card I started with some watercolored cardstock.  I  used a prima aqua pen and Rangers peacock feathers ink to hand draw the lines at the top and bottom of the panel to mimic the pillow on the lower left side of the inspiration photo.  I stacked a die cut matte gold card stock PTI Big Basics Thinking of you die.  I finished with a few of the smallest feathers from PTI What the Doodle Feathers Mini stamp and die set using some of the same colors in the inspiration picture.  I figured feathers are fluffy!




I added some tiny splatters using some black ink, water, and a tiny paintbrush.  I finished my card with a few clear sequins.

I am popping in with a couple of cards to share.  I am playing along with this month's Papertrey Ink Blog Hop.   Here is the inspiration photo.  






Here is the first card:  Birthday Wishes!




I played off of the gray, peach, and pink tones in the photo. My kids told me I was very low on Birthday themed cards, so I decided to make two.  


For the first card I used smokey shadow card stock, Holiday Greens stamp set and coordinating dies, and the sentiment is from Colorpop Autumn Kit.  The floral is stamping in Melon Berry.   I finished with a few black sequins on this one.



Here is the second card:  Happy Birthday!





Both are very similar.  Just changed up the color of the floral, the sentiment, and which  background panel would get the texture.   I did swipe direct to paper the versamark pad to create some added texture on the background.  




The second card uses all of the same except the sentiment is from Tulip Time. The floral image is stamped in Autumn Rose.  I finished with a few clear sparkle sequins.



As always thanks so much for stopping by!
