Inspired Challenge

Papertrey has a challenge to use some of their achrived color and sketch cards.  This card uses both the color and sketch card below.

Thanks for stopping by, Sentimentally Sue.

Watercolored Hello

Hello!  This card started with a piece of watercolored card stock I had laying on my stamp desk. The Hello was also just laying on my desk from another project.  It was cut from white card stock and the Wonderful Words: Hello from Papertrey Ink. I cut the hello down and mounted it over the water colored scrap.  Then punched the holes on the ends and got my bakers twine ready in yellow and orange.  I took a piece of Orange Zest card stock from PTI and did a partial die cut with the Beautiful Butterflies set also from PTI. Stamped a few butterflies with white pigment ink from Stampin Up and mounted it all on a white card base.  
Popped the greeting uo with foam squares and tied the twine around the card.  I am going to enter this in Virginia's Die cut challenge, AAA cards water color challenge and PTI's Partial Die cut challenge.

A Glowing, Watercolored Partial Die Cut

Hey all!  I wanted to create a fun card with a few challenges.  I started with a piece of water color paper and using Stampin Up watercolor crayons I created a circle with various shades of yellow and orange.  I then used a Spellbinders circle die and did a partial die cut over the watercoloring.  Using the Tim Holtz stapler to hold the cut portion back. Stamped the greeting from Papertrey Ink in Palette Noir ink. Then I made a card base with Summer Sunrise card stock from PTI and used Glossy Effects the hold my glitter in the center of the sun. This will be entered in the challenges below.  Thanks for stopping by,

PTI June Blog Hop #2

Hey all, This is the second card I created for the June blog hop over at Papertrey Ink.  I started with Beautiful Blooms II dies and cut out cardstock flowers using the color card I have shown below.  I then pieced the fowers together to create the pie cart shown on the sketch card.  Our challenge was to use the color and sketch cards they supplied to create our project.
I stamped the Turning a New Leaf set in Limeade Ice ink on a white PTI card, added the pie chart flower and accented it with a Summer Sunrise button.  I then die cut a "Hello" from white cardstock and stamped it with Aqua Mist ink with the Wonderful Words/Hello set. Finally I added the hello in Orange Zest ink from that same set.  Thanks for dropping by to check it out,

PTI June Blog Hop

Hello!  Papertrey Ink's June Blog Hop is on us so I decided to get a little inky tonight!  They shared sketch and color cards with us and asked us to create projects using them as our inspiration.  My first card uses the colors listed on the color card and the stamp sets Sketched Shapes and Simple Sentiments.  I used a little black bakers twine for a accent.  The cards that I used are shown below my project.  Thanks for stopping by, Sentimentally Sue!

Shadow Stamped Butterflies & Winged Things

Hello!  So for today's card I thought I would try a couple challenges out there.  Simon Says Stamp Monday Blog Chalenge was to stamp winged things and the challenge over at Less is More was a single layer shadow stamped card.  I started with PTI white cardstock and a set called Beautiful Butterflies.  Stamped the greeting in Palette Noir ink.  Then used mint, sky and amethyst inks all from Stampin Up to stamp the butterflies each 3 times without reinking. I then added a few silver Colorbox ink butterflies. I spritzed on a little mint and amethyst ink and then added a few silver sequins. We have a bunch of weddings this summer so I thought I better get some cards made up.  Thanks for stopping by, Sentimentally Sue.
