First usage of my Stemmed Statements stamp set here.  I am thinking that I should have purchased a TON more of the Pale Peony papers during the big sale last year.  I really love this gorgeous color, and I have swept through much of the bitty dots part of the package already.  I can tell that it will go fast!

Loving the flowers in this stamp set.

This card is up for the Fab Friday #133 challenge:

Monday’s Papertrey Ink Anniversary challenge was for color combos.  I ordered the Birthday Balloons stencils from last month’s release, and I have been very eager to do some ink sponging with them.  I used Laurie Schmidlin‘s rainbow color combo to create this card:

I stenciled the balloons onto the panel, then I doodled the balloon strings and outlines over them.  I also used a gold paint marker to add the dots on the balloons and the rest of the panel.

This card is going into the linkup for the Papertrey Ink Day 8 color challenge.

PTI Dies Only

Sunday’s Papertrey Ink Anniversary challenge was to use dies only, no stamps.  That is a difficult challenge, for me.  I absolutely LOVE dies.  In fact, I love them so much that I have far more dies in my stash than stamps.  But when restricted to ONLY using dies…..?

Well, here is what my “Great Brain” conjured up for me:

 

BDAY-021-01

Using my Shaped Sayings and Brushed Off Rectangle dies for the first time here, in addition to my Sheer Basics vellum paper that I purchased during that crazy paper sale last year.  Oh my goodness, we’d better not talk about the ridiculous hoard of paper I have a result of that! LOL.

Moving on…

This card is going into the linkup for the Papertrey Ink Day 7 challenge.

While I do love a pretty floral stamp, I also love balloon stamps.  I really have a hard time restraining myself whenever I see balloon stamps.  I have used the Balloon Adventures stamp set from Stampin Up for this card, and also the Direct Messages stamp set by Papertrey Ink:

In addition to coloring all my stamped images, I sometimes like to sit and do some sponging on white cardstock, just to have some on hand for when I get around to using them and also to practice my blending skills.  I used one of the ombre panels for this card.  I’m not much of a Valentine kind of person, so I turned these Color Throwdown Valentine colors into a birthday card, instead.

Friday’s Papertrey Ink Anniversary challenge was to use a stamp set from the 2018 retiring stamps list.  I chose to work with the Framed Out #12 stamp set to create this card:

I also used some striped paper from the Clipsters Make-It-Market Kit and also the “happy” die from the One Liners die collection, both of which I had never used to this point.

This card is going into the linkup for the Papertrey Ink Day 5 challenge.

Thursday’s Papertrey Ink Anniversary challenge was to use florals on a project.  Not too difficult for me to do, since I feel like I generally use florals on most of my projects.  Maybe I should branch out a little.  Here is my project, anyway:

BDAY-017-01

 

I used some of my pre-stamped images from the Gran’s Garden stamp set.  I do love the florals in this set – so fun to mix & match colors, so modern and fun!  I also really love the Pen & Ink stamp set.  The sentiments are a great mix of occasions and sizes, but all of them in the same fabulous font.

This card is going into the linkup for the Day 4 Challenge.
