Two Cards for PTI

For some reason, I'm always inspired by the PTI challenges.  I always learn something & most of the time end up with a card I'm happy with.  Lexi's MIM Graffiti Word Art cards are just great, but I must admit to being skeptical that I could come up with anything.  Hate to miss a challenge, so sat down to try with Wonderful Words: Hello stamps & die.  The inks are Melon Berry & Aqua Mist. 
I needed to use a heavier hand with my stencilling on the top of the the word, but I think it's OK anyway.  I didn't want to copy Lexi, so used other images from Watercolor Wonder for my background & stamped them in Classic Kraft.  May not be quite right for the genre, but I love the look of adding Nuvo Glaze to the top layer of the word.  The splatters of Melon Berry finished it off.  I'm also entering HLS Anything Goes with Dies, SSS Wednesday (shine from Nuvo Glaze) & Stamplorations Theme.

Next is my entry for PTI Transformation Tuesday--a new challenge I'm really enjoying.  This time I chose a card from 2013 that I knew would never be sent as I just wasn't happy with it. 
Old Card From 2013
I'm thinking it was supposed to be for a guy, but this time I wanted to use Rosie Posie for a feminine card.  This is my second card using the color combo of Winter Wisteria, Royal Velvet & Sweet Blush, which I really love. 
New Card 2018
I stamped the bloom (original & step 2 Rosie Posie) on a panel of Soft Stone & used my newest PTI frame dies--Double Ups: Rectangles Dies cut from white.  The text strip is Background Basics: Text Style.  Nuvo Glitter Drops embellish the flower center & I decided not to add a sentiment.  I'm also entering Through the Craft Room Door & SSS Wednesday.  Thanks so much for taking time to stop by.

  11. These are all wonderful Greta! Your MIM card is kind of CAS. Your 2013 card has wonderful warmth and texture, but the new version is fresh and clean. I haven't had much crafty time lately, I miss playing along at PTI!
