Papertrey Ink's 8th Anniversary & Maile Belles Inspiration (Day 2)

Friday was the second day of PTI's Anniversary Festivities which challenged us to seek inspiration from Maile Belles' creations and find one to recreate. It was hard to choose because I just love her style, and she was instrumental in me "needing" to buy Watercolor Wonder. This first card was a fun one because it is very similar to card stock in her newly-created paper pad. Here's my card:

Supplies: (all PTI unless noted)

Cardstock: Stamper's Select White
Ink: Tropical Teal, Berry Sorbet, Sweet Blush, Harvest Gold, Aqua Mist and Memento Tuxedo Black
Stamps: Watercolor Wonder and Wet Paint
Dies: Tipped Tops
Other: Enamel Dots (Michaels) and SU Dimensionals

I was on a roll after perusing Maile's blog here so I recreated her third card from the same post last March. Here's mine:

Edited to Add: Both cards are also being entered in Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge, All Things Bright and Beautiful

Supplies: (all PTI unless noted)

Cardstock: Stamper's Select White
Ink: Berry Sorbet, Hawaiian Shores, Harvest Gold and Sweet Blush
Stamps: Wet Paint
Dies: None

These are both great interpretations of Maile's cards. I love how you created your own water color paper. It looks fabulous!

Oh I really love both of these. The new paper is fabulous, but you did a wonderful job mimicking it! I so love what you did with the second card. What a great word collage with the wet paint words. Great colors - love it!
