PAPERTREY INK - TRANSFORMATION TUESDAY

Happy Day!

I took the chance to play along in the PTI - TRANSFORMATION TUESDAY  hosted by Michelle Leone.  Here is my new transformed card......




based on my older creation.....


What can I say...I love the PTI -Gran's Garden Set...my new go-to now!

I simply transformed my new card by using the True Black CS and opting for different colored flowers. I stamped a different sentiment which was heat embossed with White EP. I also framed the edges on the top cardstock with the Fresh Snow Ink and added some sparkles with the Zig Glitter Pen. Voila!

Wishing you a fabulous Day!

Hello and Happy Monday!

I'm playing along in the PTI - MAKE IT MONDAY #319: GRAFFITI WORD ART.....

PAPERTREY - MAKE IT MONDAY #318

Happy Monday!

Of course, I had to give the  PTI - Make it Monday #318 Simple Stitched Stems a try.....




..... it was really fun to use another way of creating a focal image.

For this card I used the Bitty Button Stacks Dies for the flower petals, the leaves are from the Bunny Blessings Dies, and the sentiment is from the Ways to Say it: Thinking of You Mini Set. I also used the Mix & Mat Scalloped Dies, the DP is from the 2008 Bitty Dots Basic Collection.

Hope you have a chance to try this fun technique as well! Wishing you a fabulous new week!
