Papertrey Ink #272: Masked Heart Wreaths

Hi,

Today's card is for this week's Papertrey Ink Make It Monday Challenge: Masked Heart Wreaths.  You can see Melissa's challenge here.  Thanks Melissa, for an awesome challenge- I don't think I would have thought of this technique.



I used images from PTI's "Garden Gild" and "Flower Fusion #7" for the wreath.  I stamped the smallest flower from "Quilted: Summer" around the wreath.  The "love" is a die cut from "Wet Paint Cuts Die Collection".  

Thanks for having a peek.

Chilling Penguin

Hi!

I had time today to join in Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: Winter Birthday, and discovered that my card also fits the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge: Chill Out!  




Penguin is from Gina K Designs "You Melt my Heart", and sentiment is from GKD's "Inside and Out".  I used Hero Arts "Star Confetti Fancy Cut Die" for the starry background.  It doesn't quite show in the photo, but I covered the snowball with "Diamond Stickles", and added some sparkly rhinestones to some of the stars.

Enjoy the rest of the week.

Soar

Hi!

Today's card is for three challenges:  Simon Says Monday Challenge: Start Afresh,
Simon Says Wednesday Challenge: New Something, and Mod Squad's challenge this week: Anything But Christmas.



Images and sentiment are from Gina K Design's "Dreams Take Flight".  I have used the dragonflies before, but not the sentiment.  My "new something" would be the Tim Holtz distress inks I used on the background: 'Spiced Marmalade', 'Fossilized Amber', and 'Fired Brick'.  I recently purchased four sets of the mini-cubes - now I have a nice variety!

Have a great week!
