Celebrate today.

Hello there. :)
I am back today to share another card I made to enter into the PTI anniversary contest.
For this one I used THIS beauty from Jess Witty as my inspiration.
Aren't those colors divine? I did not have the patience to make a piece of jewelry so went with a card inspired by the colors instead.
Here it is:
I started by die cutting the frame and using the negative as a mask. I inked the background with distress inks and stamped over it with a text background stamp fro Hero Arts. I stamped the flower and sentiment into the window before removing the mask. I stamped the flower several times onto plain white card stock and colored them in with copics. I then added some shimmer with a star dust gelly roll pen and covered it in a layer of glossy accents.  Once it was dry. I cut out the layers of the flower and assembled it with foam dots. I then adhered it to the card base over the stamped image.

Thanks for visiting:)

Papertrey Anniversary cards.

This is my second post for today. I decided it would be easier to split them up.  So first up I have a card to share for today's challenge. I used sketch NO.5
And here's my card:
I kept it very simple. I stamped the bursts from the funky florals set in different colors and then went over each one with a gelly roll stardust pen to add some shimmer.  I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment in black before I ran the panel through my bigshot with my linen/canvas impression plate.  I foam mounted it onto a plain white card base and that is it. :)

 Next up I have 2 submissions for the day one inspiration contest. This time I used THIS card by Cristina Kowalczyk.
Here's my cards:
What I LOVED about Christinas card was the repeatative stamping of the squares.  For the first one I stamped the medalions using Royal velvet and Simply chartreuse.  I stamped the greeting with smokey shadow and added a strip of score tape with black glitter ritz to the bottom. Lastly I rounded the two top corners.


 For this one I stamped half of the medallion on the bottom of the piece of card stock in Simply Chartreuse.  Next I stamped the whole medallion with Summer sunrise.  Then I masked off the card and stamped half of the medallion on the top with Melon berry. I added two strips of score tape to the top and bottom  in 1/4 and 1/2 inch widths and  burnished it with grasshopper green Glitter ritz. I stamped the greeting with Smokey shadow.

And that's it for today folks. I'm hoping to keep this streak going so don't fall over if you hear from me in the next few days ;)
Have a great day!

Clean and simple class cards.

I hope you all had a great Sunday. I have 2 cards to share that I made for the clean and simple class.
First up I have a card for  Day 2.

For this one I used one of Jennifer's cards as inspiration except I executed it a little differently.  I used a multicolor ink pad to stamp and clear emboss the sentiment, and I then made a mask from one of the my favorite things fishtail flag dies.  I sponged on some tumbled glass distress ink and gave the whole card a spray of Studio Calico shimmer spray. (you can't really tell in the photo, but it looks real pretty in real life.)  Lastly I added some Studio Calico stars that I colored by pressing into the ink pad I used for the sentiment :)

Next up:
I am submitting this one for the day 9 assignment. I used a textured watercolor paper and water color pint to make the background. I then stamped the image and sentiment and filled in any spots with a fine liner pen.  I then added a layer of Fairy mist paint that I inherited from a cousin of mine that has the most amazing glittery shimmer.  Again this is hard to see in the photo, but trust me it is there.  For more impact I added some clear gems to mimic stars. I matted the panel onto a navy piece of card stock the I die cut the edges with the pinking shears die from PTI and foam mounted it onto some plain white card stock.

This is going to be the first of two posts for today. so I'll see you later:)

Inspired by Jess Witty

So, I have TWO posts in ONE day now? Wow!  Talk about being on a roll ;)) I am so  happy to be getting ( by that I mean...TAKING) time to stamp.  I feel energized. 
I have another card to share for the Papertrey ink Anniversary challenge (can you tell how badly I want to win that AWESOME prize. ;)))

So for this card I used  THIS  card  of Jess Witty's that I went GAGA for when Lovely layers was released.
Here's my take:
Not that different I know. But I think that's cause you really can''t improve upon perfection ;)
I experimented with the funky florals set. I don't have the die so I stamped the flowers on to Raspberry fizz, summer sunrise and spring moss card stock. I  cut slits into the flowers and distressed the edges. I then spread a layer of glossy accents onto the flowers and let them dry. Once dry, I stacked them with pop dots.  I added some bling and leaves.  Oh, and on Jess's card the hexagon frame was adhered to a black base. I had the white frame on a white base and I filled the hexagon shapes in with black card stock so it is more of an even finish to the base. I stamped a Hero Arts greeting onto a banner and adhered it to the front. :)

Hope you guys are having as much fun as I am today. I'm hoping to get a tag made for today's challenge.
Have a great evening :)

Fly butterfly.

Happy Saturday!
I finally managed to get some crafting time in this week.  I have been wanting to make a few cards for the Papertrey ink 6th anniversary celebration as well as the clean and simple card class that I am taking. Now since time is of the essence, it helps to kill two birds with one stone ;) So for the Clean and simple day 2 assignment, the homewark was to create a one layer card. And for the PTI challenge,  the design team each selected 6 of their favorite cards from last year and our challenge was to use one of them as inspiration for our cards. (Well.....  That is not hard to do).

So my first card was created using this cards from Maile Belles.  I have LOVED this card from the first time I saw it, and was a BIG reason I got the beautiful butterflies set.  I just adore it.  It is one of my all time favorite sets.
Here's my card:
What I loved about Maile's card was the butterflies appeared to be flying off the page. So I used a half  die cut idea that I learned from Amber a while back. I stamped the butterflies and then used prisma color pencils to shade the butterflies and give them depth and dimension. I added a bit of shimmer to them with a clear star jelly roll pen. I then outlined each one with a light grey copic marker. 

Thanks for stopping by :))
