Get Well Card using PTI Supplies

Hi again.
This is my second post of the day. Scroll here to see my previous post. It's a card made from Papertrey Ink stamp and dies. I have a very limited supplies from PTI, not because I don't like them. It's just that they are expensive, high cost for international shipping, and they don't offer disount. I bought this set from my US crafty friend when she sold her pre-loved. It's called Vegetable Garden. I reeeelllyyy like the stamp and dies. Lovely!

This is what I made from the sets:

I specially made this for a friend who just got an accident. That's all for today.

Distressing Background - Hello Sunshine

It's sunny and hot sunday. The card I'm about to show here is using distressing technique to create background and partial die cut for the sentiment.
I used a Hero Arts Sunburst Background stamp with yellow ink to a white panel, then blend it with distress ink: squeezeed lemonade, mustard seed, and spiced marmalade. I flicked a little water into it and stamp sunshine. For the word "hello", I used Lawn Fawn Scripty Hello dies. It is a partial die cut. Finally, mat the panels all together onto cardbase. Add some sequins.

Here's a closer look: 

And I enter this card to: Lawnscaping Challenge #102: Distress Adict.

Owl Missing You - Nature Challenge

Here's another card for Hero Arts - Nature Challenge. I'm using stamp from Lil Hoot set, and this couple of owl is so cute. You might find this card sophisticated, but believe me, the most difficult part is to color the owls..ha..ha..

First I trace the hexagons on kraft paper panel to have the estimate placement on my stamping owl, then die cut. I did a little partial die cut on the biggest hexagon so that the tree branch is still attached on the panel base. As a background, I blended a night scene on watercolor paper, then did a stencil technique for the stars with embossing paste. Lastly, layer the panels using adhesive foam on white card base. Add tiny bow and enamel dots for a cute effect.

See you with another card. Have a nice weekend.

Create a Scene - Paper Piecing

It took hours for me to finish this card, but I really enjoyed it. I particularly made it for the Lawnscaping Challenge #101: Dots & Stripes. So I was thinking of using patterned paper from my stash. Since I have a huge collection of patterned paper (and I also keep small sizes leftover.., yes I am), the hardest part was to mix and match the pattern.

Here is how it came out:

I at least used four sets of Lawn Fawn stamp: Critters in the Burb, Critters in the Forest, Love You S'more, and Harold's ABCs. The other supplies are die cuts and of course patterned paper. This card might be the first card I ever made using the most supplies at once.

Thanks for stopping by.
