Get Well Showers

I used the Pebbles Garden party patterned paper then cut my raindrops from a Memory Box die. My clouds are cut from scrap bits from cloud dies from PTI. The sentiment is from Stampin Up/ Delightful Dozen set.
Hope You Enjoy!

Mother's Day Flowers



Papertrey Ink Make It Monday

This challenge was include a pattern background through a window. You could stencil, use pattern paper or more creative element to create a pattern. Using one of my favorite flower sets Beautiful Brushstrokes I created a Mothers Day card.
Inks Used to make the flowers:
Hibiscus Burst, Raspberry Fizz and Pure Poppy for my flowers. Simply Chartreuse and New Leaf for leaves. I used the Misti which really helped bring out the full color of the inks.
The sentiment is from Happy Hydrangea inked in Hibiscus Burst Ink.
The Banner is from Paper Smooches outlined in Raspberry Fizz Ink.
My patterned paper is from PTI Raspberry Fizz Mix, the small script pattern.
Simply Chartreuse cardstock, Robin Nest / Spring Mix Dew Drops.
The frame is from MFT cut in Hibiscus Burst paper.

Inspiration : Sympathy Flowers

My was inspired by Nicole's card. She made the card in similar colors using the new Grans Garden. I loved what she did so I pulled out Rosie Posie. Then I did what any costumer would do order that set! Her tip was to stamp the sentiment first then add the flowers and I did that making rest come together. My sentiment was from the Happy Hydrangea Set (Rosie Posie has none).
Inks PTI/ Harvest Gold; Summer Sunrise. Memento London Fog

Cup of Thanks







Here is my take on this challenge. Ok so I did not inky but some red patterned paper all decked out sure still looks happy. My "XO" is just a small stamp from Simon Says Stamp / Labeled with Love.
Sentiment is from MFT/ Perk Up.
My center "dollies" are spellbinders dies.
Patterned Papers /PTI: Gingham Pure Poppy, Dear Jane Scripty. The coffee cup is Memory Box Large Cup. My little dots are from Echo Park.
Ink is Memento Rich Coca Brown. The edging die is from MFT Blueprints #20

Wednesday Challenge
Birthday
I created this card from a Memory Box Die. I did do double layering in different shades of the orange. It is all glittered up in the Sheer Shimmer Sparkle, difficult to capture on film. My paper is from Hip Hip Hooray from Doodlebug. Inked up in Orange Zest Ink from PTI. Stars from Starform.

Argyle Dad

Papertrey Ink
Make It Monday
Stamping Outside the Box
The idea is to have something come out of the box (stamped or die cut) ...in the designer sort of way. Lexi explain this principle so well so do not leave it to me! So go to PTI  Capture the Moment Blog and get the full scoop.
Father Day came to mind using the PTI Tie Die. I paired it with Little Argyle background stamps (much easier to use with a Misti...just sayin!) and Worlds Greatest (an older fathers day set). I added score lines and small gems to finish it off.
Inks: PTI Pinefeather
Memento/ London Fog, Tuxedo Black

Thank You in Song






They had some beautiful photos of flowers, some with birds (see site for the full picture). It was so vibrant so I came up with my version. I used PTI Floral Sketches stamps and dies pairing it with Songbirds. I used PTI musical note cover plate for the background. Hawaiian Shores, Hibiscus Burst and Autumn Rose Inks were used. To make the white flowers I just stamped the outlines of the flowers then die cut it. I sprayed the flowers and bird with Shimmer Mist / clear. I used Saffron Spice card stock to make my bird and a few flowers.
I hope this not to bright as I used so much color. I really loved the Floral Sketches set , everything stamped and matched so nicely.
