PTI CAWU


It's always fun to case a designer for PTI CAWU.  Several cards caught my eye & I've made 3 so far. 
Michelle's fun rainbow tree on day 3 gave me the idea to try an image from Ombre Builders, but just using green ink. 
Kind of fun, but not sure anyone would know it's a tree. 
 
Next I cased one of Dawn's cards on Day 2.  For the foliage I used the Meadow Greens ferns with several images from Spruce & Sprigs. 
The panel is Aqua Mist & the inks are New Leaf, Aqua Mist, Vintage Jadeite & Olive Twist.  I wasn't happy with my stamping on one side, but salvaged it by cutting the panel smaller.  The sentiment from Take 3 Winter was stamped in Olive Twist, matching the card front.  Hard to see, but the berries are covered in Stickles.

My final card & the one I'm entering in CAWU was inspired by Laurie's Day 1 card using black & gray with a pop of red--so striking!  I plan to try it with trees, but for this card I used the same layout & images as my last card stamping in Soft Stone, Weathervane, Smokey Shadow & Brilliance Pearlescent Poppy. 
The Soft Stone panel was die cut with Scallop Stackers: Small.  I saw it upside down on my table & decided I liked it.  The sentiment from Snowflake Flurries was stamped in Smokey Shadow, matching the card front.  This time I covered the berries in Christmas Red Stickles.  I'm also entering Stamping Sensations & Time Out.

Your trio of cards are ALL wonderful Greta...love your tree card (and yes I can tell it was a Christmas tree by the star at the top!!) and case of Dawn's card, but the 3rd card is my favorite!

  5. The star and decorations were a clue that was a tree! That is a fun card. It amazes me how different cards can look with the same stamps but stamped differently and with other colors. These are both so pretty and sure don't look the same.

  21. Greta, each of these cards are fabulous! I have to agree with you - the b+W with the pop of red is really striking! I would freak out trying that color combo though! NO pastels in sight! Yikes! lol I do love how it looks so much that I might just give it a try though! Both of your other CAWU cards are fabulous! I really love when you do these posts! p.s. Thank you so, so much for your love and sweet notes, and for the wonderful feedback! Like you, I'm such a "blog" person! I don't know how I'll feel about this instagram venture, but so far everyone has been very sweet and welcoming! And THANK YOU so much for such a sweet note - I am incredibly honored to know you and call you my sweet crafty friend. Sending you so much love + happiness! xo
