Looking for a bargain? Check out my sale pages. Lots of new stamps & dies have been added.
I'm a little behind blogging my cards, but thankfully our puppydog, Fritz, has had 4 good days in a row. Hopefully, we're on the right track. Here are 3 of my recent floral cards.
First up is my entry for PTI LFF: Favorite Style. I don't have a signature style, but I do love what I call Fresh & Simple. It's not exactly CAS, as there can be layers & there's not necessarily a lot of white space.
I made a one layer notecard that's a bit smaller than A2 size. The images from PTI Friendship Jar Flowers were stamped in New Leaf, Green Parakeet, Spring Moss, Lemon Tart, Spring Rain, Lavender Moon & Amethyst Allure. I added green splatters, yellow Stickles, white crochet thread & dots of Wedding Dress Pico Embellisher. I'm also entering JUGs, SSS Wednesday & Time Out.
Quite awhile ago, I won some stamps from Virginia, including a beautiful one from The Ton. I finally inked it up & stamped on kraft in brown & white metallic inks.
The sentiment from TPC Studio was stamped in dark brown & the panel was mounted with fun foam. Finished off with 3 brown sequins. I'm entering AAA, CAS on Friday, Inkspirational & SSS Wednesday.
My last card uses SSS Spring Flowers & a Hero Arts jar. I've never used the jar or tried to show water, but Michelle's card inspired me to give it a try.
The blooms & leaves were silver embossed & watercolored with Zigs. The jar was stamped in Versafine Clair Morning Mist & fussy cut. Again I used Zigs to watercolor, using a blue for the water & a bit of light gray where the jar is empty. I masked the jar ring & stamped the stems in silver using a Winnie & Walter simple stem. I stamped each one several times to get the width I needed to match the die cuts which I also colored with the silver ink. I used scissors to cut the opening for the stems. The background is done with a PTI frame die & a Gina Marie die cut mat. Gotta say, I really had fun challenging myself to do something new & I love how it turned out. I'm entering DCD, Allsorts, SSS Wednesday, SSS WIW & Virginia's Show & Share.
