PTI's Create Along With Us - June 2018

Hello friends.  Playing along with Papertrey Ink's Create Along With Us challenge, where every day this week the cards have gotten more and more beautiful and harder to pick just one favorite!  I was so sure I was going to try and create an underwater sea card after all the beauties from Day 1 and 2, and then today they introduced the new Botanical Bounty II stamp set and I fell just as hard as I did when the 1st set came out!  Then I couldn't decide which designer to CASE as I loved all of them...especially Melissa Phillips, Kelly Lunceford, and Michelle Leone's cards!  I finally decided to CASE Michelle's card (HERE) and just change up the colors a bit.


I've been on a real Berry Sorbet kick lately, so that was my card base choice, and then I die cut the dotted rectangle frame using the Mix & Mat: Flourishes die.  Next I stamped my Hello (Penned Elegance) using Pale Peony and Berry Sorbet inks.


Next, using my MISTI, an ink blending tool, and a sponge dauber, I stamped my flowers and leaves from Botanical Bounty using Pale Peony, Berry Sorbet, Orange Zest, Bright Buttercup, Simply Chartreuse, and Prairie Grass inks.  After fussy cutting them all out I played around with arranging them until I was happy.


A few iridescent sequins and some bakers twine finished off my bright and Summery CASE of Michelle's lovely card.  (see below)

I can't wait to get my hands on the new set and also the Shape Shifter: Oval 2 like Michelle used on her card...SOOO pretty!

No shortage of cards to be inspired by this month at Papertrey Ink...may have to take out a small loan to purchase all the goodies I want from this release!!  Check it all out right HERE to play along.

Thanks for stopping by today ... I love it when you do!

  17. Great job, Marcia! I love what you did with your card. Sounds like you put in a bit of time with the fussy cutting and arranging and it was well worth the effort because it turned out beautiful! Berry sorbet is one of my favorites as well.
