more pti anniversary fun...

Hey friends!!  Back with a couple more cards for PTI's 8th anniversary celebrations.  Today's cards are for the day 2 challenge (inspired by Maile Belles) and the day 5 challenge (spring into action).  Up first is my card for the day 1 challenge:


I didn't have to look for long on Maile's blog to find a card to inspire me!  I chose a card from her day three post.   I like the way she split the panel on her design.  I pretty much copied her design except I used a flower instead of a butterfly.  I used Happiness in Bloom and the color combo from Color Throwdown so I will be posting my card to that challenge, as well.   I stamped the main flower using red and purple inks and then covered it with a mask and stamped the leaves with aqua and green inks.  The sentiment was stamped in black.  After cutting the panel I adhered it to a light grey cardstock base.


The challenge for day 5 was to use a stamp set that hadn't been used before or not used in along time.  I used the YOF Gladiolus set... one I have never actually inked up!  I stamped the main image in white on kraft cardstock and then colored it with Prisma pencils.  I cut the panel down on one side and then added a strip of Plum Pudding Bitty Box Basics patterned paper.   I was reluctant to stamp the sentiment at the bottom so I stamped it at the top... not sure I really like it. 

Thanks for stopping by...

Supplies:  Cardstock: PTI white and kraft; SSS fog; Stamps:  PTI; Inks:  Stampin Up and Close to My Heart; Prisma color pencils; PTI patterned paper

Two beautiful cards with lovely colours. Stamping on the top somehow gives a nice balance to the card.
