PTI Create Along With Us Challenge: April 2017

It's been a busy Holy Week plus we celebrated a BIG milestone birthday in my honor. Where does the time go? Seems like it was just Christmas and now it's Easter Sunday already. The ham is in the oven and smelling delicious. 

Create Along With Us at Papertrey Ink means we select a project that inspired us and create our own. With so much lovely inspiration from all the designers, it's challenging just to choose one. Being short on time, I picked what I thought would go fairly quickly and loved the colors Nichole used. Without further ado, here's what I created.

Supplies: (all PTI unless noted)
Cardstock: Soft Stone and Stamper's Select White
Ink: Harvest Gold, Bright Buttercup, Summer Sunrise, Smokey Shadow and Soft Stone
Stamps: Give Thanks and Painted Petals
Dies: None
Other: Black Fine Tip Sharpie

I chose the wrong sentiment on this second card with the itty bitty dots over the i's. Those tiny pieces cut from each color were challenging to adhere to each other even with my handy dandy, pick-up tool. My inspiration came from Keeway here.

Supplies: (all PTI unless noted)
Cardstock: Stamper's Select White, Blueberry Sky, Hawaiian Shores and Green Parakeet
Ink: Blueberry Sky, Hawaiian Shores and Green Parakeet
Stamps: None
Dies: Scripted
Other: Garden Gate Stencils, Ink Blending Tool, Spray Adhesive, WOS and Paintbrush (for splatters)

Thanks for stopping by, and I really do appreciate your comments. Happy Easter!

Both cards are lovely Kathy, but the first one with the yellow/grey combo is outstanding! I just wrote down the colors you used and will be trying that myself.

Both cards came out beautifully, Kathy! I love the yellow and soft grey colors with those pretty blooms. And the lovely blues and green are also a fave color scheme.
Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving such a sweet comment. I colored the Peonies with Spectrum Noir alcohol markers :-)

Both of these are beautiful Kathy! I love the soft backgrounds you created and those painted flowers are one of my favorite sets. Thanks so much for visiting my blog and leaving some kindness. <3

GORGEOUS creations! I love them both~ (and I also struggle with the dots on the die-cuts...I always end up having to fish them out of the trash or cut again)
