I have had a massively creative couple of days, and I thought I'd better get everything posted before some challenges end.
First up is a card mostly inspired by the photo at Fusion: Orchid Occasions. I was inspired by the two lovely aqua vases with pink orchids.
I was inspired to pull out a very old PTI stamp, Gracious Vases for my card. I colored the flowers with my Zigs and a water brush, and stamped and fussy cut one of the vases and then coated it with Crackle Accents. As Gracious Vases is old as the hills in stamping time (5 years or so), I'm entering this card at Retro Rubber #35: Anything Goes.
I am also entering this card at Addicted to Stamps and More #187: Make your Mark.
The challenge at Less is More #270 is White Space but not White. That gave me the inspiration to try something I have had in the back of my mind for a while.
I stamped Ellen Hutson Mondo Magnolia in Versamark and then white embossed it. I fussy cut a sentiment from the same set stamped in black on white.
I feel like I saw something like this eons ago, but am not sure. If this is based on your card, please let me know and I will give credit. I am also entering this card at CAS on Sunday #80: Flowers.
How about some birthday cakes? I broke out my new PTI Just Desserts stamps and dies for two cards. This first one went to my husband for his birthday. His favorite birthday tradition is a particular birthday cake that looks just like this one--and as he was out of town for his birthday, I made him this cake on a card to tide him over until he can have the real thing.
I used a PTI stencil for the background, and will enter this card at AAA Cards #61: Stencil and Seize the Birthday (without toppings).
I used Freshly Made Sketches #230 to inspire my next birthday cake creation.
I used a column of randomly sized score lines in the front middle of my card to represent one of the slements of the sketch. I am also entering this card at Simon Says Wednesday Anything Goes.
Last up is a card inspired by the colors at Color Throwdown #386 and the scoring techniques taught at Make it Monday #244.
I created a frame on my card front with score lines.
