Forget Me Not Friends

My card today for this challenge was  made mostly from the Forget Me Not flower set. The idea is stitch our stems on the card to add that sewing touch to the card. I forgot how I do enjoy my stitching and wish I would do it more often.I also doubled my frame so that my flower could rest just a little higher while still add double tape one one of the lower lilac flowers . I did put clear sparkling Wink of Stella in the centers which no one can see of course!

Elphie Selfie Congrats



Lawn Fawnatics Challenge
The challenge is to make a set of Lawn Fawn cards featuring their sets. I used Elphie Selfie to make my set of congratulations cards. From the set I rearranged the sentiment up so that word 'big' would be highlighted on the card plus adding a bit more interest. I used a variety of  LF dies to add to cute elements to the card.

Blue Outline Peonies


This week challenge is to take outline stamps and stamps over solid stamp images hence adding the color and interest to the card. Stephanie Gold was the PTI designer this week demonstrating this technique and challenge this week.
For my card this week I stamped out my flowers in 3 different colors using the Floral Sketches solid flowers. Over that I then stamped the outline flowers from the Peonies On Parade set. My sentiment is from the Penned Elegance set. I placed some enamel dots from Echo Park to finish it off.

Transformation Tuesday
Change to Darker Bolder Color Pattern

I took my softer pink card and transformed into a much darker more gender neutral card. The PTI  Guiding Lights (Lighthouse) set fit the bill. Many do love lighthouses. Using those nautical theme colors I came out with a birthday card pairing it with the previously used Text Block Birthday die.
I add some May Arts Beige Twine and a wooden anchor from the stash.

Papertrey Ink
Make It Monday
Embossing Enamel Splatters
For my card I used the Happy Hydrangea set all inked out. For the project in this week I used the Larger Tiny Tag Design Die / the Round with the Heart. On that tag I stamped butterfly in Versamark Ink from the Natural Beauties Stamp Set. Embossed it with some white opaque powder then inked inked resist in Pale Peony Ink. Then it was sprinkled with some embossing snowflake tinsel powder. It left the white speckles and some sparkle.
My flower were triple inked in various shades to resemble the diverse  shading of those flowers.
