Hello Friends

My first card is for the PTI MIM challenge. Ashley's video showed how to color a stenciled design using reinkers.  I used MFT's stencil & Brilliance Mediterranean Blue & Rocket Red. I used the same colors for PTI's Wonderful Words: Friends sentiment & die cut. The front of the card was sponged to match. I used Stickles to add sparkle to the die cut & attached 3 Heidi Swapp hearts.  I'm also entering CAS-ual Fridays, CropStop, SSS Wednesday & Die Cut Divas.

Next is my entry for these challenges: Ellen Hutson Pin-Sights, Winnie & Walter Share the Love Day 1, Floral & Day 4, Transparent. My card front is covered with a panel of vellum for a softness that compliments the beautiful Brilliance colors I used for the EH Bold Blossoms die cuts. I've had these ink pads for years & need to use them more often as they're still some of my favorites.  These Pearlescent shades are Lavender, Coral, Sky Blue & Jade which I picked from the Pin-Sights inspiration photo. W&W Hello is die cut from a soft metallic gold paper attached to 2 from white cardstock. Finished off with gold & white PPP sequins from my friend, Lisa.  I'm also entering Virginia's View & SSS Work It Wednesday. Thanks so much for taking time to stop by.

  3. Love that MIM card, Greta. Perfect stencil and colors. And your second card is so pretty too. Thanks for the heads up on the Bristol card stock. I actually got some before I went on vacation and just hadn't had a chance to try it yet. Your must have seen Kristina Werner's videos too. I tried it yesterday and do like it with the Ziggs.
