Papertrey Ink Celebration - 2016

This is the last day for the Celebration Challenge at Papertrey Ink.  I will make this one quick.

This is the card from Kay Miller, you can see it Here.  She used the stamp set called Painted Pedals.  I love the look of water color and thought that I would give this one a try.  Here goes.

                                                                       This is my card.

 Don't you just love water colored flowers?  I used an embossing folder from StampinUp for this background.  The paper is Turquoise Sea , GKD and I swiped my white pigment ink pad over it. While that was drying, I stamped and die cut the flowers and when water colored them.  I used Destress inks in Peeled Paint, Picked Raspberry, and Spiced Marmalade. A strip of gold foil paper on the side and the sentiment die cut severl times, is from Simon Says, SSS111446.   The stamp set from PTI is Peonies on Parade.  They sure are!  Some pearls from my stash and it was done. 

Thanks again for stopping in.  Your comments really make my day better. 


Papertrey Ink Celebration 2015 

Almost done!  I am  been continuing with this challenges here at Papertrey Ink and I am almost done.  Today I have chosen to to a card that was done by Melissa.  She used the die called You've Been Framed Hexagon. 

                                                  This is Melissa's card.
                                                     My take on her card.
I tried to do a free hand hexagon, but as you see, I didn't accomplish that. I just switched up to a oval.  I used DP from my stash and Dusty Rose and Warm Cocoa inks.  The card stock is Soft Sand and from GKD.  The stamp set is Quilted Summer.  I used some rectangle and oval stitched dies from Lil' Inker.
Thanks for stopping in.  I do appreciated your comments.  Must get the next card done for the 10 day challenge, as we have family coming this week.  Yeah!

Celebration at Papertrey Ink 2014

This is was an easy choice for me as I am using one of the first stamps that I bought from Papertrey Ink. It is the beautiful Feather Finery.  That it is, in my opinion the best feather stamp in the market.  It is so elegant and bewitching.  It is a stamp alone stamp and it is just radiant in any color.
Here is Melissa's card and you can find it Here


                                                                        My card

A little better look at the gold embossing.

My card is just as simple, but was a mistake that I liked.  I stamped in Distress Ink Antique Linen, and then heat embossed with gold.  Well, I forgot that the Distressed ink held the old powder and I got a more gold feather that I wanted.  But, never fear, I re-stamped over the top the second layer of dots with Warm Cocoa, GKD ink.  I also used that for the sentiment and the dots that you see on the card.  Then I placed a row of dots all around the border with the help of a ruler.

Thanks for stopping by to see more.  I appreciate that you do and your comments.

 10th Anniversary - Sending Hugs Card

See what Lizzie did click here

I love the soft look of the cascading flowers  and I wanted to recreate this card as soon as I saw it. 

I don't have a scalloped edge die that cuts like this one, so I used a scalloped border and just cut the sides.  I place that panel on a base of white card stock that I sponged with Dusty Concord Distressed ink.

For the cascading flowers, of course I went to the Garden Gate stamp set.  I have been getting a lot of use from that set for these challenges. 

The heart is a die from DieNamics  and it is cut from Recollections, Painted Fancy.  The dots sparkle. Finally the Die cut sentiment is from Big Hugs. 

Here is my take on Lizzie's card.

Thanks for stopping to take a closer look.  I enjoy your comments and they make my day.

I made my card a Birthday card as I sure need more of those these days.

I used the Scene it: Celebration stamp, along with the Stamping Simply Swoosh both from Papertrey Ink.  I stamped the stars and heat embossed with silver.  Really better to see than the picture.  There is a layer of fun foam under the design paper with is from Recollections Painted Fancy.  Thanks for stopping by, there will be more posted soon.
