PTI Blog Hop

Today’s blog hop inspiration pictures were full of color. They were interesting color combinations for this time of year.

I watercolored various color combinations and cut out some ornaments from the Brilliant Baubles set and matted them on the Mix and Mat: Berry Boughs. I used lots of gold embossing powder to highlight the foliage on the Mat and add some sparkle to the ornaments. I finished it off by using the word Christmas from the Christmas Cheer die collection and embossed it with a combination of gold and plum.

PTI- Create along with us June 2017

June Release 2017
So many beautiful cards by the design team but I was drawn to Michelle Leone's card below. 
I loved the use of the texture stamp over and over again in different colors and how the sentiment pops.
My version is out of season, but I found my trick or treat die and got inspired, so I just went with it.  That's what creating is all about, right?
I ordered the Quoted: True Friends and can't wait to use it in a similar fashion as this card!
PTI Inks: Orange zest and Smokey Shadow
PTI Die: Shaped Sayings: Halloween
Stamps: Chevron stamp from Pine by American Crafts
Thanks for looking!

Papertrey Ink March 2017 blog hop

It's the March 2017 blog hop at Papertrey Ink

These beautiful floral colors were the color inspiration for this blog hop. I have to tell you these color combinations are my favorite!

I knew in my head what I wanted to accomplish here. I only have one set of floral stamps and dies so I only had one option there. I stamped various flower elements with the different colors, not really knowing what combinations they were going to be. 

I had fun mixing and matching the colors and adding dimention. The velum idea came from the gray leaves from the inspiration. I love how the entire card came out!
