Three Cards

Thought I'd share a couple cards I posted on IG recently.  First is the card I entered in the PFS January challenge.  
I used my favorite Dainty Blossoms dies & a sentiment from Delicate Wreath.  The inks are PTI Melon Berry, Sweet Blush, Prairie Grass & Spring Moss.  I stamped the script in Fine Linen & used Spellbinders Labels for the sentiment.
Next is my entry for ITP PTI Birthday challenge.  I haven't used Vogue Vases very often, so that's where I started.  
I stamped the vase in Dark Indigo a couple times to get complete, dark coverage.  Then I stamped in Versamark & embossed in clear powder to give the look of a ceramic vase.  At least that was my idea & it is really pretty in person.  The vase was die cut & I attached it to another die cut for dimension.  The foliage from Bold Blooms was stamped in Soft Stone (multiple times to achieve a darker shade), Autumn Rose & Lavender Moon.  The sentiment from Mat Stack 3 was stamped in Dark Indigo & I added Stardust Stickles to the blooms. 
I started with a one layer card, but decided to cut the front into a smaller panel attached to a Soft Stone mat--much better to my eye!  It was scary, but I took my chances & added 3 score lines very close together near the bottom before attaching the vase.  So glad I didn't have to start over!
Finally I have another card made with Memory Box Bingham Heart die.  I had an extra kraft die cut on my table, so added color with a white pigment ink pen & a red/pink glitter gel pen.  Then I added Golden Rod Stickles to the flowers & added another heart die cut for extra stability.  
I used my favorite PTI word die, stacked it 5 high & added Golden Rod Stickles to the letters.  The heart was colored with the glitter gel pen & covered with Nuvo Glaze.  I put the heart in place, but didn't push it all the way down to keep it slightly higher than the letters.  

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

  1. I must start by apologising that it's clear I've missed a few posts Greta, not least the lovely one with the photo below. I realised yesterday that some of the blogs I follow are not showing new posts on my reading list, not sure how I can correct it so need to do some homework, but seems to be a know glitch.

    As always some really pretty cards.
