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 PTI stamper select white card stock base.  I cut another panel at 3.75 X 5.5.   To follow along with this week's CASE this Sketch ChallengeI die cut a circle and used the negative space for a mask.   I brushed the inside top with some Ranger Broken China ink and the bottom with PTI Fine Linen to mimic sand color.  



Next, I die cut and stamped PTI Some Like It Hot stamp and die set.  I used Pale Peony, Hibiscus Burst, and Raspberry Fizz inks on the hisbiscus flowers.  I used spring moss and simply chartreuse on the leaves.  I  arranged the flowers.  




I cut a strip of diagonal strip vellum and adhered to right side hiding the adhesive underneath the panel.  I added the smaller panel with the flowers using some foam tape.  I embossed the sentiment from PTI Vintage Picnic sentiments.  I finished my card with some clear sequins.

Happy Monday!  I am popping in here with a card to share.  Today is my mom's birthday!  My mom is 80 years young today!   I needed a card for her.  I figure to reach such an important milestone that it should be proudly displayed.  

I am playing along with Papertrey Inks Create Along With Us Challenge.   I really love this card from Stephanie Gold.



I love the layout and the different elements on Stephanie's card.  I chose to follow the same layout and look varying the colors and stamps as needed.   The traditional colors for 80th Birthdays are gold and black.  I started with  harvest gold chicken scratch gingham pattern paper for the background.  


I used a paper heart doily from a pack from my stash.  I layered a gold foiled Mix and Mat Pretty Bracket Frames die.  I die cut the By the Numbers in black and used foam tape to pop them up. 




  I used one of the dies from Fabulous Frames for the sentiment.  I stamped the sentiment from the Friendly Flowers stamp set in versamark.  I tied true black twine to the card and tag.  I finished my card with a few clear sequins.


Here is a picture of my beautiful mom!

Happy 80th Birthday, Mom!

Happy Wednesday!  Popping in with a quick card to share for this week's Papertrey Ink's Make It Monday Challenge.  This week is Monochrome Color Pop! 





 I started with Stampers Select White and Paper Clippings: Thank You stamp set.  I stamped the sentiment a few times using Versafine Onyx Black.  Next, I stamped the little birds.  I chose to use yellow for my color pop.  I added a few touches with some copics to give the birds some definition.






  I used a fine point black marker for their eyes.  I colored each birdie with some wink of stella for added shine.  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!



For my card I started with PTI Meadow Greens stamp set and coordinating dies to mimic the look of herbs.  I die cut and stamped the leaves in shades of green parakeet, spring moss,  and ripe avocado inks.  





I die cut the largest of the stitched rectangles dies in stampers select white.  To follow along with this week's CASE this Sketch Challenge I threaded Baker's Twine True Black using the stitch holes as a guide.  



 I used foam mounting tape on the front panel and a couple of the leafy greens.  I stamped the sentiment from PTI Vintage Picnic Sentiments set in versafine onyx black ink.  I finished my card with a few clear sequins.

Happy Tuesday!   I am playing along with this month's PTI Blog Hop Challenge!  I am popping in late in the day for this one.  I guess better late than never on this challenge.





For my card I played off of the color of the background and florals.   I used PTI white linen.  I used spring rain and direct inked the white linen to get a textural rich colored background.  I die cut it with the Mix and Mat Herringbone die. 


I added the bleeding hearts flowers from Humming Along.  I mixed colors of PTI inks to play along with the soft muted tones in the inspiration picture.  I added the sentiment using PTI Pen and Ink set.  I started with Spring Rain ink.  It did not have enough of a pop so I stamped it with Blueberry Sky.  I love the richness it adds, plus it mimics the ink tones in the inspiration as well. 


 To finish the card I die cut the photo corners in gold foil card stock for a pop of gold as well as to play off of the touches of gold in the photo.  I layered this panel with a popped up white linen panel for subtle texture to a stampers select card base.

As always thanks so much for hopping by!
