PTI and C&9

I love the new PTI Transformation Tuesday challenge, but almost forgot to finish my card after getting home from camping.  There are plenty of cards in my stash that need to be redone, but this time I wanted to remake one of my favorite cards which I made in May 2016.  
Old Card

Ink blending a masked area & stamping a solid image is one of my favorite techniques.  I thought it would be great for a sympathy card.  I used the same basic design as the old card & the same die from Don't Forget to Write.  For the new card I used Soft Stone cardstock & stamped the leaves.
New Card
The masked area is a little wider for the new card & I blended with 2 inks--Spring Rain & Lilac Grace.  I used a different image from Turning a New Leaf & stamped it in Brilliance Starlite Black.  The sentiment from Through the Trees was stamped in the Starlite Black twice to make it a bit darker than the leaves.  I added tiny splatters of the black ink & left off the embellishments.  I'm also entering SSS Wednesday.

As soon as I saw the April challenge at WCMC9, I planned to make a card with my unopened Floral Fill-In Stencils & paper pack.  Yesterday I finally made my card just before the deadline & entered it via IG.  The papers are a large square so you can get 2 cards from one piece.  Here's the card I entered into the challenge using VersaMagic Pixie Dust & Pink Petunia inks.

The centers are covered in Stickles & I used a PPP die to cut the edge.  Discovered that PTI Melon Berry is a perfect match for the Pink Petunia!  The sentiment from HA was stamped in Brilliance Starlite Black & the mat is PTI Smokey Shadow.  I also entered ABNH
Today I finished a card using the rest of the piece.  For this one I inked in DO picked raspberry & used Faber-Castel glass bead paste with the details stencil.
The edge was cut with a SSS die & the sentiment is from C&9 Flourish stamp set.  I'm entering SSS Wednesday.  Thanks so much for taking time to stop by.

  8. Three wonderful cards. I am in love with that scalloped card base die. I just checked PTI but can not find it anymore. Too bad as it is so lovely.

    The second card has that fabulous die on the angle. Brilliant idea!
    And the third carry forward that design.

    Great work, Greta!
