May 2015 Papertrey Ink Blog Hop

This is my entry for the May Papertrey Ink Blog Hop

This is a monthly challenge.  This month's challenge was to use the inspiration photo to design a card.

The inspiration photo for this challenge:

And here is my card inspired by this photo:

All supplies are from Papertrey Ink.

I used the Mighty Bloom Cover Plate which I cut out of PTI Stamper's Select White card stock.  I used a blending tool to ink up each leaf in PTI inks in a rainbow of colors.  I used the cover plate to position the leaves, and then removed the color plate.  I used a sentiment from Keep It Simple: Birthday.

Such a fun and cheery card!

For the Graduate

My cousin is graduating tomorrow with a degree in Aerospace Engineering and I needed a card.   So proud of her!  I just got delivery this week of my first Sue Wilson dies from and wanted to try them out.

I love these dies!  And I already have some more on order. 

The paper is Papertrey Ink Stamper's Select White.

The sentiment on the outside of the card is Papertrey Ink set For the Graduate

Dies used are Sue Wilson Noble Collection Ornate Pierced Rectangles

and Noble Collection Classic Adorned Rectangles

The inside sentiment is from Papertrey Ink - Tucked In:  Congratulations

I'm entering this card into the Scrapyland Challenge #17.    Anything goes using dies they sell.

Bloom Builders 3

I just got my August order from PTI and immediately had to play with the new Bloom Builders 3 die.  I cut the flowers out of Scarlet Jewel and Raspberry Fizz cardstock and then alternated the colors.  LOVE!!!!

Papertrey Ink Make it Monday - 2nd Cracked glass card

I decided to try another card using the Cracked Glass technique.  In my previous post, I made a card using this technique that had a very modern feel to it and that was clean and simple - my usual style.  For this card, I decided to go WAY out of my comfort zone and try the vintage/shabby chic style.  I've never been able to pull off this style before to my satisfaction.  I really like how this card turned out.  It's very different from anything I've ever made before.

I started out with the Delightful Dahlia image that I die cut and stamped and then colored with the Hibiscus Burst Copic trio.  I antiqued it with the Tea dye inks and then coated it with UTEE and cracked it.  I highlighted the cracks with Raspberry Fizz ink.  

The leaves are Simply Chartreuse felt cut with the Leaf Print and Sending You leaf dies and the Parisian Lace die cut doily was inked with Hibiscus burst ink. 

Supplies:  (all items except UTEE are PTI)

Ink:  Raspberry Fizz, Hibiscus Burst, Ripe Avocado, Dark Chocolate, Tea Dye
Cardstock:  White, Simply Chartreuse, Hibiscus Burst
Stamps:  Delightful Dahlia, Background Basics: Tin Type, Tiny Tags
Other:  Simply Chartreuse felt, Delightful Dahlia Die, Sending You die, Leaf Print die, Tiny Tag die, Parisian Lace Die, Hibiscus Burst Satin ribbon, 1/8" white silk ribbon, HIbiscus Burst copic trio, UTEE
