Here's a card made with PTI Friendly Flowers. I've never used the dies without the matching stamps, but I wanted to enter the challenge to create a card with blended flowers.
Actually, I love how it turned out! The background Scalloped Stackers: Large die cut is from my friend, Vikki. The inks are Sweet Blush, Pale Peony, Melon Berry & Spring Moss. I did use dot stamps from Harvest Berries for the flower centers. The PTI sentiment die was cut from vellum & Classic Kraft. I double clear embossed the letters to make them stand out more. Love the KaiserCraft Chino pearls I've had forever!
Next is the card I made for the challenge to make a friend card with different patterns. I used some very old 12x12 sheets of MME Wild Asparagus designer paper--so beautiful!
Feathered Friends 8 is so sweet & easy to assemble. I did a bit of ink blending on the head & tail.
Pigment Craft. Here's my first card made with Frame Builder: Hello stamps/stencils/dies.
Love how it's open at one end. I used these inks: PTI Berry Sorbet & Aqua Mist, MFT Peach Bellini & C9 Clover & Grapefruit. I added a Gina Marie die cut panel & a woodgrain vellum PTI die cut frame to a panel of Soft Stone. Then I mounted the frame stacked 3 high & embellished with a sparkle pen. The sentiment from another Pigment stamp set called Cup of Happy was stamped in Versafine Clair Morning Mist & the tiny black hearts are Gina K.
Recently I learned to heat my laminator at least 20 minutes before using it for foiling. I did have much better results & here's a card I made for May Rudolph Days.
I used gold foil on a striped Gina K toner sheet for the background. The MFT poinsettia was die cut from a plain toner sheet & foiled with beautiful red & green Gina K specialty foils. Wish you could see it in person as it changes in the light.
The SSS toner sentiment strip is also gold foiled & I used gold sequins to finish it off. It's not 100% perfect, but I'll still be sending it this year. I'm also entering The Snippets Playground (red cardstock scraps) & SSS Wednesday.
