Papertrey Ink June Blog Hop

I have a card to share for today's Papertrey Ink Blog Hop.
(By the way, this is my 75th time playing along with the PTI Blog Hop
-- and those are consecutive, too, as I haven't missed any since I started
participating in 2011!)
 

 This month's challenge was to use this beautiful photo as inspiration:


Isn't it lovely?
I wanted to incorporate the ombre with the flowers, but was a little stumped until 

Here's my card:


I started by stamping my sentiment (from PTI's Tropics) in versafine onyx black ink 
and heat embossing it in clear.
Then, I created a mask by tearing tha edges off of post it notes and made 
a frame, before stamping the Floral Bouquet outline twice in versamark ink
and heat embossing them in clear.


With my mask still in place, I coloured my flowers and background using my 
Zig Clean Colour Real Brush Markers and a water brush.

Thanks for looking!

Inspired By All the Little Things #62

Today, I have a card to share for 
Inspired By All the Little Things #62:


I was inspired by the colours of the umbrellas and the angle/how they were layered.
I decided to use my PTI Summer Sweetness stamp set to make my card:


I stamped my popsicles on an angle, spritzing them with water before stamping them on my watercolour paper background.


 I stamped my sentiment (from PTI' Summer Sweetness) in versamark ink
and heat embossed it in white before adhering it to my card wth dimensional adhesive.

on the inspiration photo and to play along, if you'd like.
You have until Friday, June 30th to link up your card.

CAS(E) This Sketch #227

Today, I have a card to share that I made for
 CAS(E) This Sketch #227 designed by N@Ali:



Here's my card, which I made using Reverse Confetti products.


I started by using the Leaf Lattice Stencil to blend Reverse Confetti inks onto my background.
I diecut one of the All Framed Up Confetti Cuts to frame my stencilling.


I diecut my butterfly using Butterfly Dreams Confetti Cuts and stamped it
with the coordinating Butterfly Dreams stamp, 
which I inked up with two colours.
A trio of enamel dots finishes it off.

Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge Sorbet -- Take Two & MFT Camp Create

I have another card to share that I made using the current

www.flickr.com

I also wanted to play along with MFT's Camp Create:

.



Here's my card, using Beautiful Butterflies:


I smooshed ink mixed with water onto my watercolour panel.
I stamped the butterfly onto its coordinating diecut, spritzing the stamp
with water after I inked it, before stamping it.


I stamped the sentiment (from MFT Forest Friends) onto my background.

Remember, there's still time to play along with this
 Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge.

And, while I had my Beautiful Butterflies stamp set out,
I decided to make another card, this time for Day 2: Remarkable Resist.


Here's my card:


I started by pressing versamark ink through my MFT stencil onto my white cardstock.
Then, I heat embossed it with white embossing powder and used three different
colours of ink to create an ombre effect.


I stamped the butterfly onto its coordinating diecut and added the sentiment,
heat embossed in white on a strip of grey cardstock.

Inspired By All the Little Things #61

Today, I have a card to share for 
Inspired By All the Little Things #61:


I don't often use this shade of blue on my cards, so this photo was a real challenge for me.


I decided to use my Altenew Beautiful Day stamps, which I stamped onto my
watercolour paper background, with a little masking.
I coloured them in with my Zig Clean Colour Real Brush Markers & a water brush.


I stamped my sentiment (from PTI's KIS: Sympathy) in Altenew Jet Black ink
and added a black border along the side.
