What a fabulous week it’s turning out to be! Not only this super sunny weather, but also the fab time I had yesterday meeting up with some fellow PTI Addicts (Caryn and Taheerah) to have a girly night at the Trafford Centre!
Just sharing a couple of cards today for challenges that I just had to play along with and had lots of fun doing so in the process!
This was for the Embellish Challenge, which I personally think was thought of with me in mind LOL! Earthy tone, green, and the requirement of a butterfly on your project really got my mojo going!
Now I used a butterfly punch that I’m totally guilty of neglecting. I really should use the supplies I convince myself I NEED more often!
Stamps: Around and About Sentiments/Polka Dot Basics II
Ink: Memento Black/Versamark
Card: Kraft (from stash)/PTI True Black and Spring Moss
Paper: PTI Bitty Box Basics Spring Moss/True Black
Accessoreis: Cuttlebug/Nestabilities/EK Success Border Punch/Tonic Butterfly Punch/Jute Ribbon Twine/Corner Rounder Punch/PTI Button
And speaking of challenge, here’s another card I entered for a Paper Crafts challenge which was based on a sketch that I kinda followed….well I missed some of that sketch off but I still like the card *grin*!
I die cut a load of flowers from tissue paper that you get your precious PTI stamps wrapped in and layered them to make these pretty blooms.
I’m thinking of giving this to a happy couple who are about to get married very soon – it kinda makes me think of a wedding with all that white!
Stamps: PTI Damask Designs
Ink: PTI Smokey Shadow
Card: PTI Stamper’s Select White
Accessories: Cuttlebug/Nestabilities/Cuttlebug Flower Die/PTI Impression Plate/PTI Vintage Buttons/Hero Arts Pearls/Tissue Paper
Hope y’all having a fab week so far, I’m kinda sad it’s Friday tomorrow; why is it that a week off just flies by and a week at work drags by slowly *sigh*
Both of these are really FABULOUS Aimes!!! And how fun that you got to meet up with some PTI folks, I hope I can do the same someday 🙂
Wow Aimes – these are both sublime. I am in love with that kraft number and the shards of black DP – is inspired.Glad you enjoyed your crafty get together 😀
I love your first card a LOT!! The polka dots, the curved sentiment, the pop of color behind the butterfly, just to mention a few!!!
Holy Cow do I love that long card!!! so different from everything else I am seeing these days!! And the white on white….stunning!!
I'm head over heals with that long kraft card, Aimes! From the unusual format to that punched out butterfly, it's simply stunning 🙂
