More Cards

Finally got my driver's license renewed, so I'm driving legally again!  Not that I'm actually driving very often these days.  I don't have a passport, so decided to get the Real ID.  Wasn't sure I'd ever get on a plane again, but with the vaccine maybe I will!  
Here's a card I posted awhile back on IG for TTTC102.  I made a cardstock stencil from Stamplorations Bloomtangled 1 die, placed it over a wc panel & spritzed with Tattered Angels Turquoise Blue & Meadow Greens Glimmer Mists.  
The mat is Gina Marie Loopy Rectangle & the word is SSS Painted Thanks stacked 3 high & covered in Nuvo Glaze.
Next is my card for Gina K Monthly Mix Challenge & ModSquad Challenge.  I masked an area & blended Distress Oxides fossilized amber, spiced marmalade, broken china & faded jeans to give the impression of a sunrise. 
This is my first card using the sentiment & butterfly from Gina K A Big Hello.  The brown ink is Versafine Clair Acorn & I embossed the butterfly with Hero Arts Sparkle ep.  
I'm also entering Day of the Month Card Club where they're celebrating their 2nd Blog Birthday.  Thanks for the info, Gundi.
 

I also made a couple more Easter cards.  First is my entry for ITP/PTI The Great Cover-Up Challenge to make a watercolor card.  
Last time I got out the Garden Gild dies, I cut a bunch, not knowing how many I'd need.  Since they were die cut from Bristol, I colored a few of the leftovers with my Zigs.  For the background I did a watercolor wash of Blueberry Sky & added the Shape Shifters Oval 3 die cut.  
I die cut several of the Impression Obsession sentiment die cuts coloring the shadow with a green Zig & white embossing the top layer.

One more Easter card & this time I used a blossom from SSS Spring Flowers, a Stampendous sentiment & Cuttlebug Modern Wallpaper embossing folder.  
I added some color to the pink, textured cardstock with markers & brushed the petals with a glimmer pen.  
Finished off with charcoal gems & black enamel dots.  I'm entering Just Us Girls, TTTC104 (Die Cut, Flower, Coloring) & SSS Flickr #171.
Thanks so much for taking time to stop by.  If your blog address is in your profile or comment, I will visit you.

  16. What lovely cards you have on display, Greta. I remember seeing your last card on IG and thought it was beautiful. I'm so glad you shared it with us at Just Us Girls.

  17. Greata, You have quite a lot of beautiful cards in this post. The easter card is stunning and the last one for JUGS is lovely too. Love the texture and the perfectly placed flowers. Thanks for playing along with us!

  18. Well, you had me at the first one, Greta, and each card design is going in my folder! I truly love each and every one. I'm really amazed by the first one and the way you made your own stencil and just sprayed it. I've been holding off getting yet more product when it comes to the sprays, but you've hooked me with this! Plus, those large dies seemed to be pretty limited, so I appreciate knowing I can cut a stencil and play with it! Great blending on the butterfly design (which you can share at NBUS), and amazing texture and dimension on the last two! Good job getting your real ID! Getting fully vaccinated makes a world of difference! Hugs, Darnell

  20. What beauties! That butterfly card is stunning! I renewed my license too but hardly ever drive now as Ian drives us everywhere. It would be nice to get a holiday but I can't see it happening this year... You need to get a passport so you can come visit me one day... Sending hugs

  21. What an absolute feast for the eyes Greta! Each card offers something different and special. As someone else said, I'm going to save all of these to my "special" folder. Very clever to create a stencil for your first card and I love the delicate border. I'm definitely going to try your technique with the butterfly card. Stunning. Easter Joy is truly a joy to behold and finally the soft pinks on the last card really highlight the beautifully embossed background. Superb creating. TFS
