Hello Everyone!!!

Today I'm joining in for the PTI Feb2014 Bloghop.
I've a super busy day ahead, so I made a quick card before I hit the road.
Love the new PTI goodies...didn't wanna miss the chance to play with them.
This month's theme is ... SWEET SPRING.
February-blog-hop

I would like to apologize in advance for the poor photography, my camera went bad, I'm using my iphone for the time being.
The card is very shiny in real...
I used the new PTI Garden Grace stamp set....its super easy to layer & stamp.
That set is great for quick stamping...so detailed yet easy to stamp!!!!
 
I used Heidi Swapp's Butterfly stencil as a mask and sponged the area with Distress ink...then stamped the floral image over it.
Its kind of like vintage postcard look...

 As you all know I'm totally into gold trend now...so added few splatters of Heidi Swapp Gold color shine...love that stuff!!!
Also added a bit of vellum and gold glitter paper ...and some stitching.

This card is for the following challenges...
Simon Says Stamps: Anniversary.
The Card Concept: Floral
My style is Clean & Layering.



I've rush now...will hop along to use all the lovely creations later in the evening.

Cure for the Monday Blues!!!

Hello Everyone!!!

I finally made a card for Taheerah's Cure for the Monday Blues challenge...
She started a fun inspirational challenge to give us a lil' crafty boost to start our week.
I'm not a MONDAY fan...I can use some great inspirational push always.
This week's pic is Awesome...they always are but I didn't get a chance to play .

Before I say what inspired me from this pic...I would like to share my card with you all.
Now how I designed this card....

I picked the soft colors
I picked simple rectangles shapes of the frames 
There were many frames so I added few layers
One of the frame had a red floral bush so that's my inspiration for the focal image.
One of the frame had a message in capital letters...so I picked the sentiment with capital font.
There are cross stitched heart frames...so I used some thread in my creation.
I used a heart too!!!
Finally added some enamel dots for the bright lil' 3-d elements in the picture.
WOW!!! Tons of stuff in that simple pic...isn't it???

I used new stamps and dies from Paper Smooches.
Floral Stamp is from PS- Botanicals 2 set... this set!!
The sentiment is from PS- Many Thanks set.
My new favorite border dies are PS-Borders 2 dies.

The gorgeous ink is from Avery Elle...have to get all the colors, they are amazing!!
Hope you like my take on this inspiration pic!!!!

This card is for the following challenges...
Paper Smooches Sparks: Anything Goes.

I'll be back tomorrow with my Runway Inspired card.
