PRS/Imagine Crafts Blog Hop Day 2

I'm back today with 3 more projects using the PRS stamp sets School Days & Totally along with Imagine Crafts products.  The Blog Hop begins at Precious Remembrance Shop where you'll find all the details.  There are prizes to be won, so check it out! 
My first card shows how the School Days set doesn't have to be used just for teachers & students.  My sister-in-law was recently promoted to Sr VP of the company where she has worked for 20 years--so proud of her!  I'm happy to say she loves her card. 
I began by spritzing a panel of white cardstock with Wedding Dress irRESISTible Texture Spray.  Using the direct to paper technique I covered it with Memento Lilac Posies & Angel Pink.  A clean cloth wiped the ink off the white texture spray.  I die cut a Spellbinders flower from the panel & matted it with a white doily from PRS.  For the center I stamped the circle sentiment in Lilac Posies, punched it out & mounted it with foam tape. 
I used a Mama Elephant die for the card front which gave me a panel & a border.  I stamped the tracks image in Memento London Fog on each side of the panel, overlapping them, as you can see.  The little sentiment was stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black on a vellum strip & attached before adding the scalloped frame which had been inked with Lilac Posies.  I'm entering The Snippets Playground.
Edited to add: also entering CropStop (Spellbinders flower die)
My second card uses an adorable image from the School Days stamp set along with gorgeous Fireworks Shimmery Craft Spray in Tangelo, Rose Bud & Angel Pink. 
I stamped the image in Versafine Onyx Black on white cardstock & then spritzed with the 3 sprays.  Next I used a small paintbrush to color in the images with the sprays--giving it several coats to get the intensity I wanted.  The shimmery sheen is just gorgeous! 
I mounted the circle with foam tape to a panel with the 3 circle images stamped with the matching Memento inks.  I added tiny black splatters & attached it to the card front with black strips on each side.
My final card uses the Totally stamp set plus a little sentiment from Fall Colors
The big word was heat embossed 3 times with Imagine Crafts black embossing powder for a wonderfully shiny, raised effect.  I trimmed it out with scissors & worked on my card front.  First I stamped the wonderful border image in Delicata Rose Gold on black cardstock.  It is absolutely gorgeous & so fun to be able to stamp on dark papers with the Delicata inks. 
The little star was stamped randomly in Memento Tuxedo Black & I added some splatters.  Tied in the border by stamping the sentiment in Rose Gold on a black strip.  For fun, I attached the big word at a bit of an angle.  Flat card, but lots of interest due to the great images, texture & metallic ink.  That's it from me, but lots of inspiration at each stop of the hop.  Don't forget to check out the giveaway info at the Precious Remembrance Shop Blog.  Thanks so much for taking time to stop by.

I'm trying to figure out the Mama Elephant die you used on the first card. I really like that stitched look and the doily. Congratulations to your sister in law for her promotion. The school card and totally are so shiny and fun.

I love all three of them, but I think the first is my favorite! I'm a little partial to paper doilies!
