Fun with older sets

I can count on one hand the number of times I've made a card with masking.  Usually I don't have the patience which I think is because I'm such a slow crafter anyway.  However, can't miss a PTI MIM so sat down last night determined to come up with something for the Masking Sentiments challenge.  I ended up using 2 of my older PTI sets: Year of Flowers Collection (my first PTI order in 2011) & Framed Out #1 (purchased in 2012) for a one layer thank you.  The frame has a matching die which I cut from a full adhesive sticky note to use for my mask--worked great!  I bought the floral set to use for backgrounds after seeing that in a magazine years ago.  Sadly, I've hardly used it, but the daffodil turned out to be perfect for what I had in mind. 
The PTI inks are Honey Nut, Harvest Gold, Ripe Avacado & Simply Chartreuse.  No coloring at all--just added Star Dust Stickles to the flower centers.  It's such a neat look in person as the glitter picked up the green color of the stamping. 
Needed just a little something in the background & I was afraid to do actual splatters.  Instead I used a stamp in the Precious Remembrance Shop set called Fall Colors.  The stamping is second generation with Simply Chartreuse ink & I love the results.  I'm also entering Retro Rubber, Stamping Sensations & WAW.  

Happy Mother's Day and thanks for stopping by!

What a subtle beauty! Using the stickles is such a great idea to accentuate the centres. Isn't it fun to get out your old things and remember why you bought them? Thanks for joining us at Retro Rubber Challenge.

Beautiful CAS and loving the masking. The no colouring looks fabulous, along with the bit of bling in the centres. Good idea to use a stamp for the splats x Beautiful card x

This looks so pretty! Love how you used Stickles instead of coloring!

Ivana Camdzic said...

Greta, this is SUCH a lovely card and I'm smitten with your masking! I hear ya about how long it can take - I usually avoid it, but when I take the time, it's always fun to see the results! For a second, I thought your beautiful vase looked like a little PTI ink cube! I adore the daffodils and the colors you've used here are so refreshing and happy! Such a beautiful card, dear friend!

This is lovely Greta, the sparkle is wonderful! I used to mask all of the time on my cards. It is time consuming, but sometimes worth that extra effort!
