Hello and happy Sunday. I had the craftiest weekend ever, and have 7 cards to post for a variety of challenges.
First up is a card using this week's technique from Make it Monday #241: Ombre Stencilled background.
I used the new PTI anniversary stamps and dies, Painted Petal to create my card, as well as a new MFT stencil. I am entering this card at Darnell's NBUS #6 Challenge, as it has 3 NBUSES on it
Next up is another card using Painted Petals--a little more towards my CAS style.
I am entering this card at Just Us Girls #333: Flowers.
How about another floral card with lots of white space?
Inspiration for this card comes from the Poppystamps Challenge #18: Spring Fling. I used two Poppystamps dies on this card..Grand Flower Box and Groovy Flower.
I had to perform a little bit of surgery on my die cuts to allow the flowers to be a different color from the leaves--kind of like grafting a plant.
I am also entering this card at AAA Cards #59 where the challenge is embossing. I used Lil Inker Diamond Lace impression plate for my background embossing. I am also entering this card at Less is More where the challenge is Citrus colors--I've got Orange, Lemon and Lime covered.
I used the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches #226 to make a thank you card for my daughter's soccer team manager.
I used PTI Go for the Goal. My daughter's school colors are brown and yellow. I am not kidding. They have had to switch their uniforms to yellow and grey, as they could not even find brown uniforms any more. My camera has done terrible things to the yellow on this card, which is actually quite bright and pretty IRL.
For my next card, I combined the sketch at Retro Rubber #33 with the Geometric challenge at Inkspirational #103.
The sentiment stamp on this card is probably about 3 years old, as is the SSS Diamond Parade die.
I die cut once from black and again from white, using Copics to color all the different sections in a rainbow of colors. I am also entering this card at Seize the Birthday Anything Goes.
Still with me? Early this morning, I saw this card over at Stephanie Lanzalotto's blog, and it reminded me that I have 2 daughters who will probably be getting their drivers licenses before long, and I'd better be prepared with suitable congratulations cards.
I am entering this card at Simon Says Wednesday where the challenge is Texture.
And, a slightly different version of the card, this time using the car image (PTI Enjoy the Ride) as a subtle background print.
I am entering this card at Simon Says Monday where the challenge is New Beginnings. For my daughter as well as me, the freedom to drive (and the freedom FROM driving) will represent a new stage of life for both of us.
Well, that's all for me today. Thanks for sticking with it for such a long and crafty post.
Thanks for Visiting
