PTI--not SAF

Before I consider doing any of the PTI SAF challenges, I finished cards for PTI MIM and PTI Transformation Tuesday.
Papertrey Ink Blog

First is MIM, Layering Patterns over Images.  I've stamped text & music over images, but I don't remember using a geometric stamp until now.  I actually made 2 cards. 
My first thought was Turning a new Leaf, since the images are solid.  Then I decided to try Spruce & Sprigs since the holly leaves are larger.  I used Delicata Golden Glitz to layer the Cover Up: Diamonds on both cards, but stamped the first vertical & the second horizontal. 
The sentiment for the leafy card is from Friendly Flowers & I used gold Pico Embellisher for the dots.  The sentiment for the Christmas card is from Snowflake Flurries & I added a bit of Stickles for some sparkle.  So fun to use some of my huge stash of ribbon again. 

Next is my Transformation Tuesday entry.  I really love this card I made in 2016 for one of the PTI CAWU challenges.
Original Card from 2016
Decided to use the layout for a Christmas card this time.  I started by picking one of the papers from PTI Candy Cane Prints & used matching inks for the wreath. 
New Version 2018
The dotted circle from Shape Shifters: Circle 3 was embossed to use as a guide, like Heather recently did. 

The images are from Gathered Garden & the sentiment is from Splits: 'Tis The Season.  The silver glitter strip is Heidi Swapp tape & the silver dots are Stickles.  It'd be fun to make this wreath in a variety of colors for various occasions.  I'm also entering WAW.  Thanks so much for taking time to stop by.

  14. Three gorgeous cards Greta - the over stamping creates interest without detracting from the fresh, crisp look. Your makeover is lovely too, but I still really like the original version. TFS
