PTI and Stamplorations

Two cards today--both using some of my newest goodies.  First is my entry for PTI CAWU.  I was inspired by one of Laurie's cards on Day 3 of the release.  My card uses her basic layout including 2 layers with the bottom corners rounded. 
All the stamps are from Gathered Garden and the inks are Melon Berry, Harvest Gold & Cocoa Bean.  The printed paper is Melon Berry Bitty Bit. I'm also entering Stamping Sensations.

Next is my case of Jessica's card using Bloomtangled #1 coverplate for Stamplorations BD Link Up.  I just got that coverplate & boy do I love it!  It cuts beautifully, too. 
Instead of COPIC markers, I used my Zigs & a waterbrush--only adding color to one flower & 2 leaves which I pieced back into the negative spaces.  The whole thing is sprayed heavily with a glitter mist. 

I wanted to include a die cut word, but didn't want it to detract from the soft coloring.  Decided on white with Wink of Stella & Nuvo Glaze--just the look I wanted.  I'm also entering The 30 Day Coloring Challenge & WAW.  Thanks so much for taking time to stop by.  I'm behind, but will catch up with you soon.

  14. The depth of embossing on the second is super Greta, but the first is my fav today, the rounded corners add a lovely softness. Many thanks for sharing with us at Stamping Sensations June challenge.
