Fly As High As Your Dreams

Good Monday morning! Today's card uses the sketch from Happy Little Stampers

Here's my card:

I used PTI's Beautiful Butterflies to create the sweetly multi-colored panel of fluttering butterflies. The sentiment is from MFT's butterfly set.

I'm also entering this card into the Simon Says Wednesday Challenge.

Don't Abandon the Coral

So I've made a couple of cards for the Simon Says Monday Challenge focusing on the color, coral.

This card uses MFT's Blueprints #20 for the two top panels. I stamped the daisies from PTI's Favorite Flowers first onto the printed panel. The daisy petals are heat embossed in white. The Iris is die cut, stamped and popped up using foam tape. The sentiment is stamped from the same PTI set.

My next card using the technique that Melissa Phillips used on her recent MIM video using gelato's over stamped images. The design is pretty much a CASE of hers but I'm adding it here just because coral is the main color used.

I made a card and tag set for a mother's day gift set.

Two for One

Good Saturday morning! I'm getting these cards in just under the wire for the Color Throwdown Challenge.


I originally made this card to go along with the Sweet Sunday Sketch but I see it has an extra tail that the sketch doesn't have but I'll try it anyway.
The extra tail comes from the widest strip. I used my MFT Pierced Fishtail Banners to cut it and when I cut it to fit the panel, I had this cute little tail left over and just couldn't bare to throw it away so I added it to my card at the last minute, forgetting the details of the sketch. Oh well, it's still cute!


This is my next card using the same color palette because I was going to use two flowers on my first card until I realized they were just too large. So I get two for the price of one today!
One of these cards are each being entered into the following challenges:

Using Gelato's with Stamps

Melissa Phillips has a great video on using Gelato's over stamps for this weeks PTI Make-it Monday challenge.
I used PTI's Daydreamer set for my card. I found that I really enjoyed this technique and hope to try it again soon. I just love the dreamy, hazy look the Gelato's add to the stamped images. I'm a big fan of Melissa's style so I pretty much went with her idea all the way!

I'm also adding this into the Word Art Wednesday Challenge

Thanks so much for stopping by! Blessings~ Birgit
