Floral Caring Card – Papertrey Ink August 2016 Blog Hop Challenge

pti aug 2016 blog hop challenge floral caring

I haven’t completed a challenge in a few months. I created today’s card for the Papertrey Ink August 2016 Blog Hop Challenge.

Here is the inspiration:

pti aug 2016 blog hop challenge inspiration

As usual, I struggled with supplies for this challenge. I haven’t bought any new stamps from Papertrey Ink in a while, so you have definitely seen me use this set for a challenge before.

I stamped the flowers in navy, then masked and stamped the stems in navy. When dry, I used an aquabrush to “paint” the flowers. I wasn’t sure how well the Vintage Cream cardstock would hold up to water, so I was very careful to keep my brush wiped off fairly well.

Supplies: Stamps – Papertrey Ink, paper – Papertrey Ink Vintage Cream, Stampin’ Up! Blushing Bride, Night of Navy, inks – Stampin’ Up! Blushing Bride, Night of Navy, VersaFine Onyx Black, dies – Lawn Fawn, sequins – Doodlebug Designs, embossing powder – Ranger Silver Pearl, twine – MarkerPOP.

Paint Chip New Baby Note Card

diagonal paint chip baby note card

Yes, I am still playing with my paint chips. (this is a really old one…cross my heart)

Blog hopping last week, I saw a few cards with diagonal stripes. I like any kind of stripes. But, I don’t have a diagonal cover plate die, or a stripe stamp that is wide enough for diagonal stripes on a card front.

Think think think.

 

Light bulb moment!

 

I don’t have to place my rectangle die parallel to my paint chip stripes! I can place the die diagonally on the paint chip!

Yeah, really. I got that excited. And I do think in sound/media bites from cartoons, movies, TV shows, songs.

Supplies: Stamps – Stampin’ Up!, paper – Behr/Home Depot paint chip, Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Pop’Tone Sour Apple, inks – Copic E21, R81, RV11, VersaFine Onyx Black, dies – Lawn Fawn (stitched rectangle), Spellbinders (circles, rectangle), embossing powder – Filigree Fine Art Powder clear, organdy ribbon – Offray.
