Friendship Cards

There are lots of great products in my sale pages--take a look!

It's been awhile since I posted, but I have been making some cards.  I got to meet up with my friend, Rosemary, again for lunch & a bit of crafty shopping--alway a treat!  Can't put off writing a post any longer as the deadline is almost here for ITP LFF with the theme to case a project done for the June release.  Laurie's final card on Day 3 inspired me to get out PTI Watercolor Wonder--a set I seldom use.

 
I didn't want to totally copy what Laurie did, so I decided to use a color combo of Berry Sorbet, Pale Peony, Fine Linen, Classic Kraft & Cocoa Bean.  Making the background was really fun--just random stamping of 3 different images.  Then I added brown splatters.  Laurie used new oval frames which reminded me of PTI Twig Wreath, so I die cut the wreath from Fine Linen & Classic Kraft.  I die cut a variety of the flowers & branches in Twig Wreath from colored cardstock matching the inks & arranged them on the wreath.  That was the hardest part of making this card!  The little tag was stamped with a sentiment from Twig Wreath & I added Wedding Dress Pico Embellisher dots.  I'm also entering WAW

Next is my first card made with the Pinkfresh Studio die called Hello with a Bouquet.  I attached the die cut to a panel of PF paper from the Happy Things collection which was in a prize package I got a long time ago.


The letters were inked, covered with Nuvo Glaze & then with White Blizzard Nuvo Drops.  There's plenty of dimension & texture without needing to stack the letters.


The little word is from W&W The Big, the Bold & the Happy.  I stamped on a scrap of the printed paper & matted it with another scrap.  Finished off with clear sequins.  I'm entering the June Pinkfresh challengeVirginia's Show & Share & The Snippets Playground.

  1. It doesn't look like putting your wreath together was hard at all, it's fabulous!
    And so is that pretty white bouquet on your second card. Wish I could have been at that lunch and shopping trip with you and Rosemary...two of my favorite bloggers!

  10. Both cards are pretty Greta. I really like the colours you chose for the wreath one and the bouquet on the second one is adorable. Love the shimmery green greeting on that one too. What a treat to spend time with a scrappy friend and indulge in a spot of shopping.

  16. I love both of your cards, Greta! Watercolor Wonder works well as a background especially with the die cut flowers on the wreath. Your second card with that delicate die is so pretty. The straight forms of the Hello letters contrast nicely with the lacy look of the die cut.
