Papertrey Ink April 2017 Blog Hop

Hello!

I am once again participating in the Papertrey Ink Monthly Blog Hop for April 2017.

 


Here is our inspiration:

 
 
And here is my card:
 
 
 
My card base is Moonlit Fog card stock by Gina K Designs, as are my foliage die cuts.  I started by stamping the pretty flowers from PTI, Vintage Linens, inks in Pink Pirouette, More Mustard and So Saffron.  My dot stamp is from their Phrase Play # 5 set.
 
  

 
Foliage 1 dies by Paper Smooches.  After the card panel was completed I took the Curly Words--Hello die by Die Versions and cut my sentiment directly out of the panel.  I then cut 2 more layers out of Moonlit Fog card stock and layered all 3 together.  I always LOVE this look!  Corner Rounder.
 
 
 

 
So pretty!



 
 
So much dimension.
 
I am also entering this card into the Challenge at Scrapy Land, Spring Blooms.
 
Thanks so much for HOPPING by......can't wait to see what you have created!
 
Enjoy~~

Happy 87th, Mom

Happy Monday!

Today's card will be entered into the Challenges at; Simon Says Monday, We've Got Your Number, Simon Says Wednesday, Showers and/or Flowers and Scrapy Land, Spring Blooms.

I found this awesome Video by Dawn for a Four Fold Card.  I have never seen these before, but loved it.  Check it out for yourself!



 
 
This card will fit into a regular A2 size envelope, pretty cool!  I used White and Turquoise Sea card stock by Gina K Designs.  My Designer Paper is by The Craft Smith, Tea Party.  It has these beautiful turquoise and pink roses all on a background of pretty gold.  I also added Gold and Hot Pink Foiled die cuts to accentuate the gold of the Designer Paper.  Crafty Ann Butterfly 6 die. The small hearts are from the Memory Box Homespun Heart die cut.
 
 
 


 
 
This is the card fully opened, pretty impressive, aye?  Dawn shares all of the sizes in her video.
 
 
 
 


 
 
Altenew  stamp and die sets; Beautiful Day and Wild Hibiscus.
 
 


 
 
Power Poppy stamp sets; Go Wild, Potted Primroses and Short Stacks.
 
 
 

 
 
Inks in; Bermuda Bay and Raven Black.  Copic Markers. 
 
 
 
 


 
 
Gina K Designs stamp set Simple Numbers.  Spellbinders Standard Circle die.
 
 
 

 
 
Very back of card.  I used the Stampin' Up! Sealed With Love stamps and Love Notes die set.  Made the small little envelope and tucked a note inside, this is where I will add my little handwritten note.
 
 
 

 
 
Obviously you can decorate the panels anyway you like, but I kind of followed along with Dawn's examples.
 
 
 
 

 
 
Also made a matching envelope, which she'll probably save.  :)
 
This was a lot of FUN to create!  I think I will make one for a 99 year man I know. 
 
Thanks for coming by.
 
Enjoy~~

I used the Altenew Beautiful Day stamp set and Wild Hibiscus stamp and dies.  Flowers colored with Copic Markers.  Raven Black ink by Brutus Monroe.
 
 

 
I split my panel and layered a piece of Black and White card stock beneath for a little bit of interest.  I also added   a pretty Gold Foil strip which I created using my Mini Minc Machine.  I spritzed Heidi Swapp's Color Shine in White and Ocean all over.  Topped with a few randomly placed Gold
Sequins.
 
Hoping you all have a bright shiny Friday.....we have rain.  April Showers Bring May Flowers and all!

Be Happy

Good morning!

Today's card will be entered into the Challenges at Papertrey Ink, Create Along With Us and Simon Says Wednesday, Spring Color Inspiration.

I chose to case this beautiful card by Lizzie at PTI:

 
Switching up the colors and using this palette from SS:
 
 
Here's what I came up with:
 
 
I used the Papertrey Ink stamp sets Pretty Petals, Happy Hexagons and the stamp and die sets from Flower Favorites.  Spellbinders Standard Circles die.  Inks in; Bermuda Bay, Daffodil Delight, Crushed Curry, Pink Pirouette and Wild Wasabi.  
 
 

 
 
After stamping my Vellum Strip I heat set Clear Embossing Powder over my sentiment stamped in Raven Black ink.  I am always afraid of smudges.  Heidi Swapp Color Shine in Butter, spritzed all over.  My colors seem a bit darker here, must be the editing, the round panel on the inside is a Blue Lagoon card stock, which is turquoise....hmmmm.
 
I love the design of Lzzie's card, it's just so clever!
 
Thanks for dropping by!

Warm Thoughts, Miss You

Hello!

Today's card will be entered into the Challenge at Paper Smooches, Showers.  I will also enter this in the Face Book Stamp Junkies Page Challenge.  The theme is Flowers And Showers and is sponsored by Spellbinders and runs from April 1 - 21.

My card takes place after the rain.  lol


My Designer Paper is by Pebbles, Garden Party.  Spellbinders Wellies dies.  I cut first from some Blue Raspberry card stock and then the floral print, which I offset just a tiny bit to make it look like rubber soles.  My frames are by Papertrey Ink, Shakers And Sprinkles dies.  I Love how they framed in my focal images.



 
The background paper has little umbrellas and the middle panel is; rain rain go away.....cute!  I also added 2 pieces of thin ribbon over the sectioned panels.  My wellies are filled with pretty posies from a Poppy Stamps die, Dogwood Blossom, each flower has a pearl center, which I colored with a Copic Marker.  I also added some pretty White 'greenery' using the Paper Smooches Foliage 2 dies set.  Sentiments, inside and out, stamped in Tempting Turquoise ink and are from the Paper Smooches stamp set, Sentiment Sampler.
 
 

 
Paper gardening is just as much fun as real gardening.
 
Thanks so much for stopping in.
 
Enjoy~~

Good Morning!

Here's what I created:
 
 
I used the pretty Power Poppy digi, Dancing With Daffodls.  Images colored with Copic Markers.  The 'sending' sentiment is from their Soothing Sympathy stamp set.  I printed out this image last year.  I hand cut the banner style and stitched all around adhering the White card stock to the Grass Green piece.
 
 
 
 
My Yellow Polka Dot Designer Paper is by Papertrey Ink, Bright Buttercup.  MFT Blueprints #12, stitched banner flag die cut.  Sunshine by Simon Says cut in Sweet Mango card stock.  Orange and White Gingham Ribbon, Candy Dots and Wink Of Stella Clear Glitter Pen for accents.
