PTI MIM #325: Flowers in Reverse

Dawn challenges us to die-cut flowers in white only and "spruce-up" the leaves while mounting everything on a pure
white background. The colors in her leaves draw attention
to her white flowers. I had some trouble trying to find the
"right" flower dies from my sparse floral collection. I used
Garden Party and a set from MFT (Bold Blossoms). I know
my BG is supposed to be all white but I couldn't resist adding
a strip of yellow check to add a little pop. Here's my take:
 Supplies: PTI Garden Party, Shape Shifters: Circle 1 Die, PTI Dye Ink (Simply Chartreuse,
Hawaiian Shores, Spring Moss, Aqua Mist, Pale Peony, Lilac Grace, Amethyst Allure, Harvest Gold), MFT Bold Blossoms/All Smiles Card Kit, MFT Tiny Check Brights PP, water droplets.

PTI Create Along With Us: June 2018

I have fallen for Betsy's fish/turtles and underwater elements this June release. Naturally, I've selected one of Betsy's
beauties to CAS. Of course, it is a bit easier if you have the  "right" stamps/dies to begin with. And that's where the challenge comes into play...thinking out of the box. First went
with a watercolored background and then used the ivy from
Ivy and Blooms as some kelp. My fish and turtle are from two
MFT sets (Mermazing/Beach Buds) since I don't own any by
PTI yet. I added some Sparkling Clear jewels for bubbles.
I can't wait to add more underwater stamps/dies from this release to my collection! :)

 Supplies: PTI Ivy & Bloom, ways to say: thank you, MFT Mermazing/Beach Buds, Die-namics Stitched Rectangle STAX 2, Kuretake Gansai Tambi Water Colors, Copic Sketch,
Sparkling Clear Jewels, PTI Dye Ink (Simply Chartreuse, Ripe Avocado).

PTI MIM #324: Lots O' Dots

Michelle heads up this week MIM with her challenge of adding dimensional dots to embellish her stamped images. I used Michelle's idea of using a butterfly, only mine is from Butterfly Folk. I usually shy away from large stamped images but the largest one from this set seemed most easy to apply the colorful dots. From there, I just wanted a light, simple background so I went with a watercolor wash. I combined Nuvo Crystal Drops with Stickles mainly because I didn't have all the colors I needed in the Nuvo. Here's my result:

Supplies: PTI Butterfly Folk, ways to say: Just for You, Bitty Big: Spring Rain, Zig Clean Color, Kuretake Gansai Tambi water colors, Nuvo Crystal Drops (Caribbean Ocean, Red Berry, Dandelion Yellow, Bottle Green), Stickles (Orange Peel, Yellow, Lavender), Die-namics Cloud 9/Stitched Rectangle STAX 2.

PTI Transformation Tuesday #9

This weeks Transformation Tuesday is hosted by Lexi Daly as she takes
a more masculine emoji birthday card and transforms it into a sweet
feminine one by switching out her colors to pink and adding balloons.

I have taken a card I made back in April of 2017 for the PTI MIM:
Patterns Behind Die-Cut Windows hosted by Dawn McVey.  I decided
to follow Lexi's idea tho visa-versa. I wanted play with my Glorious Globes
stamp set and used Dawn's method to create my last Father's Day card

Supplies: PTI Glorious Globes Basics, Glorious Globes: April, Keep It Simple: Father, Mix & Mat: Herringbone, PTI Dye Ink (Pure Poppy, Blueberry Sky, Hawaiian Shores, Cocoa Bean), MFT Small Brick Wall stencil, JukiKins EP (Rustique Weather Vane).
