Water Color Wonder

Today I have some cards to share that are made from the newly release PTI Watercolor Wonder.  I have fallen in love with this set!  You can make one layer cards that pack a lot of punch.

This weekend I needed Thank You cards for the band teachers so I whipped these up in our school colors.  I used Amuse Ink.  The above card has Winter Sky and Blueberry stamped twice.  Below is Winter Sky, Blueberry and Navy.  I think I like the effect of the top card the best. 

In the next card I was going for an abstract sunrise.  

I wasn't happy with the way the orange color stamped.  I felt like I smeared it so I decided to embellish the mistake away.

I created a three layer vellum butterfly adorned with rhinestones.

Good Morning.  Today I am participating in the PaperTrey Ink Blog Hop which is all about Monograms.  I chose to make an anniversary card for a friend to give to his wife.

I decided to give the card some elegance by embossing the background with sparkle embossing powder in a damask print.  I used 1/8 scor-tape to add glitter to the top and bottom.

I added the pink mulberry spring roll  paper cinched in the middle to look like a bow.  I think the card ending up being reminiscent of Marilyn Monroe.

This next picture is of the inside but the colors turned out horrible in the editing.  The card base is a light grey that I stamped with A.muse Seattle ink on the large damask.  The sentiments are Versafine black.  The bottom is a piece of card stock that matched the mulberry paper cut with  PTI edger die 1.  I decided to  covered it with more glitter because glitter is the gift that keeps on giving - LOL.

I am happy with how this turned out.  I struggled a bit with the monogram theme.  I think it is easier to monogram a piece of decor rather than a card. 

Finding the bling letter is what really turned this one around.  Once I saw it my head started running with ideas.  And to think it was only $.35!  I really should go back and get more.  These would make pretty wedding cards.  Oh and sweet birthday party invites for my not so little girl...I see a diamonds are a girls best friend theme in the future!!

PTI Boutique Accessory Challenge

Hi there.  Today I am showcasing some home made goodies my daughter and I made to give to her "besties".  We made earring sets from buttons and shiny embellishments.  The blue set was made in her school color and has a matching bobby pin.

We placed them on the die cut cards that were decorated with PTI Button Boutique.

PTI Favorite Project #2

I chose Cristina Kowalczyk to case while I played along with the Papertrey Ink favorite project challenge.  I used her butterfly card card for my inspiration.

PTI Favorite Project 1

Today's card inspiration comes from Maile Belles favorite projects.  I like her clean, simple style.  It is my favorite look but one that I find hard to achieve.  I always want to add one more thing :)

I especially like the lines of this one but I didn't have a stamp to use so I improvised.  I used my score-pal to make lines in some velum.

It's hard to see in the picture, but I added a touch of sparkle to the apple with a gel pen.
