Simon Says Stamp Work It Wednesday Challenge

Hello, today I am featuring a card made for Simon Says Stamp 'Work It Wednesday' challenge using
'anything floral.'  For this card, I used the heat resist technique on the background, using 
SSS falling hearts background stamp and white heat embossing, then water coloring over.  I die cut the frame out of the water colored piece with a MFT die and attached it to card base with foam tape.  The sentiment is SSS, and I topped the card with a cute little bouquet from PTI, Bitty Blossom's stamp and die set.  I finished the card off with a few sequins sprinkled here and there.  Thanks for stopping by!

It's Papertrey Ink's 9th anniversary and they are hosting daily challenges to celebrate!  This challenge was to create a card using nine 1 1/2" squares and alter each one differently.  Boy, I have to agree with some of the other posters who thought this was harder than it sounded! It WAS hard to create a card that looked cohesive to me, so what I came up with is a kind of hot mess😉. I managed several different techniques, but not necessarily a different one on each square...,,,more like all over.  I did some
background ink sponging, ink smooshing, water coloring, stickles, heat embossing, pen lining, added a heart sticker, sequins and finished it off with some water spritzing.  I guess I can say it's 'artsy' right?😉
I used PTI's 'With All My Heart' stamp set.  Thanks for stopping by!

Papertrey Ink Make It Monday

Hello, today I have a card created for PTI's Make It Monday challenge, which was a Valentine Ombré Effect card.  for this cars I used several different stamp sets and different PTI card stock.  The scallop framed is from the shaker die set, the hearts, limitless layers;hearts, the little truck and sentiment are from Tremendous Treats, Valentine.  For the gradient of colors in the card stock, I used raspberry fizz, berry sorbet, lovely
Lady, sweet blush for the 'haphazardly' cut stripes, and pure poppy for the background.  I stacked up some tiny die cut hearts in the trunk of the truck (which I watercoloredbon some watercolor paper) and beside the sentiment.  Thanks so much for stopping by!

Time to try another card challenge.  This time it's the Simon Says Stamp Wednessay challenge.  I made a cute Valentine card using the Chrisrmas lambs from Lawn Fawn's 'Baa Humbug' stamp set, Little B heart dies, SSS 'Wishing' die and sentiment stamp (the banner stamp is by Mama Elephant).  I did a light water color wash in light pink and scattered some die cut hearts from PTI Notched Heart Banner die.  Love repurposing my stamp sets!
