Today, I have two cards to share for Papertrey Ink's 9th Anniversary Celebration Challenges.
The first one is for the Day 2: Dress Up Inspiration Challenge.
I bought this skirt last year at Old Navy and thought it would inspire a fun card:
I decided to pair my PTI Phrases and Praises stamp set with the sweet birds from Wee Folk.
At first, I thought I'd just pull the colours from the skirt and stamp the birds in different colours,
but I decided to stamp them in black and colour them in with my Zigs, to match the skirt.
I added a few flourishes from Wee Folk as well.
On the side, I stamped some of the larger flourishes from Wee Folk in berry sorbet,
onto a piece of berry sorbet cardstock, for a soft tone-on-tone effect.
My second card is for the Day 3: Grab & Craft Challenge.
Now, when I had first gone looking in my closet to try and figure out which outfit/item of clothing would inspire me for the Day 2: Dress Up Inspiration Challenge,
I saw a scarf that I love, which has a white background and yellow, black and grey flowers.
But then, I remembered the skirt and chose that instead.
I decided to still use the scarf for my inspiration to make a card, so I quickly
grabbed my Brushed Blooms stamp set, some ink and cardstock,
and white embossing powder and made my card:
I was super happy with how it tuned out!
I used some Stormy Seas ink and cardstock.
The sentiment is from Bloomers, which was sitting out on my craft table.
Thanks for looking!
