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 focused on the colors and overall look of the inspiration photo.  I started with some PTI white linen paper.  I used ranger hickory smokey ink cube with the dtp(direct to paper) technique brushed it across the paper.  I added some pressure in areas to get a more saturated look. I really love the distress weather feel.  




I stamped and die cut PTI Beautiful Berries stamp set in pale peony and lovely lady.  I white embossed the sentiment from PTI Caligraphy Classics set.  I added some white paint splatters for added effect.  I finished my card with some clear sequins.

Happy Sunday!  I am popping in with a card to share.   I need a graduation card for a man!   Check it out!  I am playing along with this week's PTI Make It Monday Challenge:  Watercolor Wash Background.  I chose to do the emboss resist option using Papertrey's Tropics stamp set.  I stamped the images in versamark, white embossed, then added different colors of ranger inks for my watercolor wash.  I added some splatters as well in shades of greens with a touch of some black.  




For my sentiment I used PTI Pen and Ink stamp set.   I cut a strip of Pure black card stock.  I stamped the sentiment in versamark and white embossed,  I created my own fishtail at the end with some snips.  I am using this week's CASE this Sketch as inspiration so all of my foliage is at the bottom and left edge.  



I must admit, while I was creating the background, I did not realize this sentiment was so large. I feel it covers up a lot of the background images.  I really did not have time to redo.  After I added the clear sequins it started growing on me, though.  It is quite manly so Win! Win!

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 piece of PTI Lovley Lace Patterned Paper.  All the paper butterflies created a pattern-like feel to me.  I chose a scripture focusing on feathers as the flutter reference.  I stamped the scripture from PTI Year of Psalms: March set.  





 I added aqua mist and harvest gold inks to two of the feathers to add some color from the inspiration photo.  I added the focal panel to a smokey shadow card base using some foam tape for dimension.  I finished my card with a few clear sequins.

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.

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!
