Two final cards inspired by SAF

Today, I have two last cards to share that were inspired by Papertrey Ink's
Stamp-A-Faire Challenges this past weekend, more specifically,

Nichole shared such pretty inspiration photos on her blog, 
it was hard to only be inspired by one of them!
So, even though I can't enter them in the challenge (one project per person)
I want to share them here on my blog.

First up, this beautiful photo...

... inspired this card:

I diecut the Beautiful Berries: Spring and stamped it in PTI Ocean Tides
and Altenew Mango Smoothie, Warm Sunshine and Evening Grey.
I had smooshed some Hawaiian Shores ink onto a piece of watercolour
paper for another card and diecut it using my Shaker Shapes: Rectangle dies.
I blended some Ocean Tides ink onto the frame.

I stamped the sentiment (from Simon Says Stamp's Congratulations) 
in clear and heat embossed it in black --
also something I thought I'd use on another card, but didn't.
I love it when I can pull some of these leftovers together to make a card!

And I was super inspired by this photo:

However, it wasn't a PTI set that jumped to mind to use when I saw this photo...
it was my Flourish set by Concord & 9th.

I started by stamping my PTI Vintage Cream background with 
my C&9th Barnwood Background stamp in Altenew Morning Frost.
Then, I stamped the Flourish stamps in PTI Canyon Clay (stamped twice), Terracotta Tile,
Scarlet Jewel and Ripe Avocado (stamped twice).
(Have I mentioned lately how much I love my MISTI?)
I heat embossed the flowers in white and tried to add the detail in yellow,
but it melted into the white a little.
Still a cool effect though.
For my berries, I stamped them twice in Wplus9's white ink and then a third time
in PTI Spring Moss, which turned out quite cool.
I stamped the detail in Spring Moss again.

I stamped my sentiment (from PTI's Winter Woods) in Ripe Avocado (twice).

I'm linking this card up to this month's 

Thanks for looking!
