SIMON SAYS - HAVE A HEART

Happy Friday!

Today, I have a card for the SIMON SAYS - HAVE A HEART - WEDNESDAY CHALLENGE ....




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.

Wishing you a fabulous weekend!

PAPERTREY INK - TRANSFORMATION TUESDAY

Happy Thursday!

I'm playing along in this weeks PTI - TRANSFORMATION TUESDAY hosted by the super talented Laurie Schmidlin.

Here is my new card......



based off of this card....


I started with a different background technique using Alcohol Inks instead of Water Colors. The framing was cut with the new PTI - Bold Borders:Arabesque Die. I also switched up the flower arrangement with the PTI - Farmer's Market Florals Set. The new sentiment is from the PTI - Sentiment Staples: Congratulations Mini Set.

Wishing you a fabulous day!

PTI - MAKE IT MONDAY #347 - WINTER WATERCOLOR

Hello and Happy NEW YEAR!!!

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 :)

I stumbled up on the PTI - Make it Monday #347 - Winter Watercolor challenge and figured I'd give it a try......




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.

The trees and reindeer are from the Make It Market Kit - Wonderland.  The stars are from the Star Scribbles Set. The sentiment is from the Penned Elegance: Christmas Set.

At last I added some White Acrylic Paint and Glitter to finish off my card...voila! Wishing you a fabulous week!
