My card is featuring the PTI - Birthday Balloons Set and the matching PTI - Birthday Strings Mini Set. The vibrant colors are - Hibiscus Burst, Bright Buttercup, and Hawaiian Shore along with Raspberry Fizz, Summer Sunrise and Tropical Teal. For the backround framing I used the Bright Buttercup CS. At last I added the "stamped stars" with the same main colors and added some Gold Sequins.
I had some time to play along in the newest PTI - WIN IT WEDNESDAY challenge hosted by one of my favorite designers Laurie Schmidlin.....
Like Laurie, my favorites are also the PTI floral sets...and I just had to ink up the beautiful PTI - Farmer's Market Florals Set, along with the matching dies. The DP is from the PTI - Bitty Big: True Black Collection. The sentiment is from the PTI - Twig Wreath Set. For the final touches I added the PTI - Raspberry Fizz Ribbon and some Gold Halfback Pearls...voila!
Wishing you a fabulous start into the new week! Hugs, ~Silke~
Unfortunately, I don't own a "Heart" image or set from Simon Says, so I used the an older PTI - Happy Hearts Set. The sentiment is from the PTI - You are loved Mini Set, (it's no longer available). I used several different red hues for the hearts and finished it off with some Ice Crystal Sequins.
For this card I inked up the PTI - Farmer's Market Florals Set...along with the matching dies. The DP is from the PTI - Bitty Big: True Black Collection. I added some extra interest with the PTI - To The Point Edgers Die....and finished it off with some Gold Halfback Pearls...voila!
I can't believe I have not posted anything in sooooo long!!! This past holiday season was a busy one. Everyday something else prevented me from crafting. Finally we are back to normal and my girls are back in school...yeah! It's good to be back :)
Inking the watercolor paper up was really fun, I forgot how many looks you can accomplish.
For the card base I used the Blueberry Sky CS. I also used it for the sky along with, Spring Rain, Enchanted Evening, Lovely Lady. For the trees and reindeer I used Bright Buttercup, Rip Avocado, Olive Twist, New Leaf and True Black.
I started out with brushstrocking my base with the Zig Kuretake Gansai Color Set.
Next I dried the cardbase and cut out the frame by using the PTI - Mix & Mat: Postal Die. The sunflowers and sentiment are from the beautiful PTI Anniversary Set called Painted Petals (no longer available). To finish it all off ...I added some Clear Sequins...voila! Wishing you all a fabulous new week! Hugs, ~Silke~
I knew I wanted to ink up my beautiful PTI Anniversary Set called Painted Petals (no longer available). I used the matching dies to cut out the flowers and leaves. The sentiment is from the PTI - Penned Elegance Set. For the background I opted for the PTI - Diamonds Stencil. The frame is from the PTI - Cover Plate: Pretty Frame Die. I finished it off with some Clear Sequins.
Thank you for stopping by! Wishing you a wonderful weekend!
Melissa Phillips always has the cutest gift ideas and wrapping. With "Halloween" right around the corner I figured I'd craft something along those lines.
I used the sweet "Frankenstein" face and "Hugs" tag from the Halloween Hugs Mini Kit. The treat bag itself is from the Favor it Box 2 Die using the Amethyst Allure Design Paper for my base. I decorated the bag with the "Spider Web"Corner Adorner from the August Release...next I bedazzled it with lots of Black Glitter, plus I added some Ribbon and a tiny Clothes Pin.
Hope you have a chance to play along? Thank you so much for stopping by!
I decided to use the PTI - AUTUMN PUMPKINS SET for my design. I really loved Laurie's tone on tone card and I also decided to use the Kraft CS. For the background I used the PTI - Text & Texture: Leaves Set. For adding a little bit more interest in the design I added some piercing, some splatters of black ink and some Pearls.
Thank you for stopping by! Have a fabulous new week!
Once again, Papertrey Ink hit it out of the ballpark with their new holiday release. I love the new collection byDawn McVey called "Sweet Stitching"....and of course all the fabulous ideas she crafted for this September Release and I chose this card to case....
Gosh, I can't believe I have not stamped in almost 4 months....yikes! I had a very busy, but yet relaxing summer. Our girls are growing up way tooooo fast and I enjoyed hanging out with them. We know our days are numbered with them showing interest wanting to be with us....so I had to soak in all the time they wanted to hang out :) !!! Hard to believe...our Sarah is a Junior in her Marketing Bachelor Degree, Rebecca is a Senior in High School and Miriam is a 8th Grader this year. WOW!
Anyways, I'm a bit rusty.... and needed some serious inspiration. After looking around, I found this fun sketch by CASE THIS SKETCH #289 .....
