time to celebrate

Papertrey May Blog Hop Challenge

Time for another Blog Hop using Papertrey Ink products and inspired by this summery poster:


My card has a flower stamped in various colors from 
Heather Nichols' Be stamp set and the sentiment 
added in two different fonts from Wet Paint III.
The panel is mounted flat on a top-folding green card base.


So many graduations this spring and mostly girls!
Linking this card to capture the moment
Off to see what everyone is creating for the hop!!

It's a Good Day

Make It Monday #248:

This week, Lizzie showed her tips for ink blending using our own die cut masks! 
Here is her lovely example:

I chose Papertrey Ink's Cover Plate: Blue Skies Rays and Zappy Birthday dies. I used Distress Inks hickory smoke and black soot for the Zappy birthday city scape and squeezed lemonade for the sun rays, tumbled glass for the blue sky with a bit of ripe persimmon near the skyline. Grounded the scene with a washi tape road and added a Mama Elephant - Up Up and Away sentiment. That good lady Stella winked a bit of sparkle on the sun rays too.The masked panel is layered on foam over a charcoal woodgrain pattern paper.
