more papertrey 8th anniversary

First off, Happy Love Day peeps! May your day be filled with chocolate!


I've got two cards for the Papertrey Anniversary celebration. First off for Day 8 - Blue Ombre.


I used markers to ink up the blooms (light blue to dark blue) from Mini Blooms and misted them before stamping. Added a sentiment in black and the perfect multi-functional, easily mailable card was born. Actually made a second one while I was at it. I think it could even work as a sympathy card. And now for the contrast program.


The jury is still out on this one. The glittery base was an experiment from awhile back. I die cut the Chevron Plate from scrap, laid it over the black, covered up the remaining areas and hit it with spray adhesive. Removed the masks and poured on the glitter (gold at the top, silver at the bottom). Burnished it all with my finger and this was the result.

I must admit, the heart and the sentiment were laying around on my desk. So I stuck them on. Probably not the best way to make a card ;)

Anyhoo, this is for Day 7 - Heavy Metal Challenge. Are you playing? The challenges are open til Sunday.

I love making cards from scraps on my desk! Love how the chevrons turned out, and I like the soft colouring on the flowers.

Those sweet posies are so pretty, Maria ... and oh my, those glittery, shimmery chevrons ... glorious ... and as if these two cards weren't enough to brighten a day ... you wish us one filled with chocolate ... heavenly! Anita :)

Love the blue ombre - especially because of the triangular shape of the floral image. I really love your glitter experiment, and I happen to think that sometimes just sticking something on your desk on a card to finish it comes out just perfectly. I love the way your happenstance finished off your card!
