For You!

Happy Sunday!  I am popping in with a card to share.  I am playing along with Papertrey Inks Transformation Tuesday Challenge.  

The card I chose to transform is this one.  You can check out the blog post on it HERE.

I realized there is not much similarity between my transformed card.  Truth is... I did not like it.  I did use the recessed focal image concept, though.  I started with some Papertrey Ink Mint Julep Bitty Big Color Collection and The Studio Paper Mint Berry paper pack.   I just love these colors together.  I do not think I have ever used this color combination.  I cut the Mint Julep tiny polka dot pattern to fit an A2 sized card.  I cut the Berry Mint pattern using one of the Noted: Simply Stitched A2 Vertical dies.  I layered the floral pattern using some foam tape for dimension.   

Next, I focused on the focal frame. I used some stampers select white card stock and die cut the Shape Shifters:  Square 1 die.  I left out the center die cut.  I used the Window Works die the oval one and it was a perfect fit.  I added the frame to the card using foam tape and turning it at an angle so the corner point was at the top.  I recessed the center oval using some Tombow aqua glue.    Next,  I die cut and stamp the rose cluster image from The Sweet Life stamp set and The Sweet Life die collection.  I used Tim Holtz stamping platform.  I used lovely lady, hibiscus burst, raspberry fizz for the flowers and mint julep and ocean tide  inks for the leaves.  I added the flowers and leaves using some foam tape. 

For the sentiment I die cut the "for you" using Especially You die collection.  I die cut the words four time using stampers select white card stock and one time using raspberry fizz card stock.  I glued the layers together for added dimension.  I love how these words nestle perfectly inside the oval. I finished my card with a few clear sequins.

As always thanks so much for stopping by!


  1. Beautiful card. Love the design and the papers you used. The roses are so pretty. TFS

  2. Betty, both of these cards are beautiful, but the second card is definitely beyond stunning with the many sweet florals and delicate layers - and loving the color combo you chose!

  3. Love them! I like how you used the shape shifter die with the window cutout. I will definitely try that!


Thanks so much!
