PTI blog hop - touch of gold

Man oh man, did this card ever give me trouble!   I was inspired by Japanese chiyogami paper and wanted to create something like it.  At first I wanted to use Mini blooms, but that was more gold than I wanted.  Then I had trouble arranging the flowers 'just so'.  It's still not quite how I envisioned it, but I finally gave up.  

I found the perfect floral in an unlikely place - Strawberry patch set!  I embossed the outline large flower in gold and filled in with copic, embossed the solid small flower in clear, and stamped the large solid flower in versamark and white.  I added white dots with a pen, and some sparkly accents to the clusters.

I couldn't find a nice match for the sentiment so I stamped once in Berry sorbet, and overtop in Wet cement.

Enjoy the rest of the hop!

Supplies; Stamps - Strawberry patch, Mini blooms (sentiment), Paper - Sweet blush, white, Other - Gold embossing powder, clear embossing powder, white gel pen, silver gel pen.

Quick chevrons

Sometimes a card needs to be made RIGHT NOW, and there are only 5 minutes to work.  This was one such occasion.  I took patterned paper, ran an impression plate over it, quickly stamped a sentiment and outlined it with glue and added glitter.  Done!

Supplies; Stamps - Think Big, Paper - Canyon clay, SU PP, Other - Linen impression plate, glitter.

At least that is what I think this flower is.  :)

I stamped two cards utilizing masking for the flowers, sprayed some gold mist and added banners for sentiments.

Love the layers and layers of petals.  I added BB: herringbone on the banner on the second card.

Supplies; Stamps - Cutting garden, Bountiful banners, Mini blooms (sentiment), Paper - white, SC green, Other - bountiful banner dies, fishtail flag dies.

Narrow aqua hills

Maybe not the best title for a post, but oh well!  I wanted to do some cottag-ey/country patterns to go along with the house image.  The main panel was stamped onto white, coloured and then popped up with dimensional adhesive.

Supplies; Stamps - Spring hills, Envelope pattern, Paper - Aqua mist, Green boutique PP, white, Other - Copics.

Watercolour postcard - springtime ride
