PTI and W&W

The latest PTI Laurie's Fabulous Favorites challenge is to use your favorite color of cardstock.  I love the PTI neutrals of Soft Stone, Classic Craft & Vintage Cream.  But for my card I wanted to use one of the color colors--haha!  I mostly have variety packs & use it very sparingly.  Autumn Rose is definitely near the top of my list--a gorgeous dusty rose color.  Unfortunately, I really couldn't get an accurate picture, so this will have to do.


I let the Autumn Rose shine by stamping the images from Gathered Garden in Versamark.  The sentiment from the same set was stamped in Weathervane.  The Pierced Feature Frame was die cut from Sweet Blush cardstock.  I added 3 smokey gems for embellishment.

Next is my entry for Winnie & Walter's 5th Birthday Bash Card Set Challenge.  Boy did I have fun making 3 Christmas wreaths with images from In Bloom: Frenchy's Festive Florals & a bunch of different inks.


In A Word: Noel was die cut from adhesive backed fun foam 3 times & each foiled in a different color.  I used cardstock to mat the gray/silver & red versions.  For the green one I foiled the edges of the mat with the same foil using Score Tape.  I'm also entering ABC Christmas ChallengeWAW.

I need a couple cards for men who are about to have surgery.  I like to use leaves for masculine cards, so decided to use 5 leaves from Winnie & Walter In Bloom: Renee's Leaves which works for the W&W 5th Birthday Bash 5 Challenge


I stamped one panel on white cardstock & the other on Bristol, cutting both out with W&W Essentials: Tilda Cutaways. 


I could probably count on 1 hand the number of times I've used my Copics to color images, but for some reason I decided to give it a try--maybe because the card isn't for a cardmaking friend--haha!


The Bristol panel was done with my Zigs & a water brush.  The sentiment is from a very old Hero Arts set called Special Note of Thanks & both have black splatters.  I matted the Copics panel with black cardstock & the watercolored panel with green.  They look quite different, but each has it's own appeal, I think.  I'm also entering SSS Wednesday.


Thanks so much for taking time to stop by.  If your blog address is in your profile or comment, I will visit you.

  3. I love the images on your first card and the lovely leaves for the surgery cards. I hope the surgeries are over and they are healing. The foiled foam (say that three times) cards are beautiful and a great idea.

  5. Greta, you've been busy making a fab array of lovely cards. Your first card is an ode to that lovely pink, the framing sets it off nicely. Your three noel cards are so festive with the foiling. Leaves definitely make for a good masculine card.

  10. All the cards are so wonderful. And, I like the idea of using the leaves designs for a sympathy card. Usually I tend to gravitate to using the leaves for Fall cards mainly but you have shown how versatile the leaves can be.

  20. A wonderful collection of cards Greta. I love the soft pink/rose on the first one and the subtle stamping. How organised you are to be creating shimmery Christmas cards; the wreaths are lovely and I like the simplicity of the leaf cards; perfect for any occasion.
