Ink To Paper: Laurie's Fabulous Favorites (9/18/19)

Laurie's Fabulous Favorites: September Case

I have CAS'd one of Laurie's gorgeous cards made with the Peaceful Forest stamp set and the Splendid Snowflakes Border. I did not purchase the forest stamp set since it was too similar to the Enchanted Forest by Betsy Veldman which was released last year. I love Laurie's colors and inked up my trees with similar colors. I also added a tiny dots embossed BG to resemble snow. The trees from Betsy's set are not as large as the new set but the effect is very similar. :)
Supplies: PTI Enchanted Forest, Ink to Paper On the Border: Splendid Snowflakes Border, MFT Stitched Rectangle STAX 2/Birdie Brown Greetings Galore, Stampendous EP (silver), VersaMark ink, Cuttlebug EF (small dots), PTI CS (Aqua Mist), PTI Dye Ink (Aqua Mist, Tropical Teal, Green Parakeet, New Leaf, Ocean Tides, Soft Stone, Kraft).

Laurie's Fabulous Favorites: Vellum

This week, Laurie challenges us to use our favorite way of adding vellum to a card. I must say that I have not colored on vellum as Laurie has. This creates a beautiful almost stained glass effect. I'll have to give this a "go" soon. I use vellum many times to add my sentiment, especially if my card is very busy or has a nice BG. The vellum sentiment also adds texture and a layer to the card as in the one I made for this challenge. I CAS'd a card created by Kelly Lunceford for the August release. Love her colors!

I have created this card to give to our oldest daughter and her hubby who celebrated their 10th anniversary a couple of days ago. :)
 Supplies: Ink To Paper Birdie/Sweet Tweets, Lawn Fawn oval die, PTI Dye Ink (Blueberry Sky, Pink Lady, Hibiscus Burst, Cocoa Bean), DOI (broken china), Stickles (magenta), Copic Sketch, VersaMark Ink, Stampendous EP (silver).

Laurie's Fabulous Favorites: CASE

With the August 2019 release just last week, our challenge
this week is to CASE one of the many wonderful creations by the talented Ink To Paper DT! I bought the ITP Monsters die set because of Kelly Lunceford's Monsters Inc fun tent-style packaging...just in time for Halloween. Thought this would be cute to give to our grandkids (5). I made the same 3 characters Kelly made tho' changed up my Boo by adding her little face in the purple monster's face. Just have to make a couple more...Mike is the easiest to whip up. ;)

Supplies: ITP: Monsters/Ghosts & Ghoulies Sentiments,
Reverse Confetti: Bag & Tag Creator, Nuvo Crystal Glaze.

Sparkle, Glitter & Shine = BLING in my books! And I'm with
Laurie that there is usually something "bling-y" in almost all of
my card creations. So to demo this challenge, I have created
 a shaker card with lots of "bling-y" shaker components not to mention the frame base created with "bling-y" Stampendous shabby pink embossing enamel. 💕

Supplies: Ink To Paper Dandelion Wishes/Dandelion Wishes Sentiments, PTI Pierced Feature Frame Dies, MFT Gingham Galore PP, Stampendous shabby pink embossing enamel, Zing EP (Blush), Ranger EP (Princess Gold), JudiKins white EP, misc sequins.

Laurie's Fabulous Favorites: Black & White

I don't know why I don't do black and white more often.
I love the graphic look. Creating the card is simple and yet eye-catching. I need to use this technique more often. ;)

 Supplies: PTI Bold Borders: Arabesque Die, ITP Simply Sweet: Hello/Just Sentiments: Tagged, VersaMark ink, white EP, misc. snow crystals.

Laurie's Fabulous Favorites: CASE Birthday Wishes

This weeks challenge is to CASE one of the cards the DT has created for the July 2019 release. There are so many beautiful examples to be inspired by. I really love Laurie's card and what she did with coloring that gorgeous floral die-cut. Of course, placing it on a black BG makes the die-cut "pop" even more. 

I selected a card by Michelle Leone. Her card is graphically simple but quite eye-catching. I achieved Michelle's "look" by embossing some 1' x 1' squares and then die-cutting some flowers out of felt. It's pretty much the same design tho' with different elements...since I don't have the particular stamp set Michelle used (yet).
 Supplies: Ink To Paper: Simply Sweet: Thanks (sentiment), MFT Die-Namics Bold Blossoms/Slanted Sentiment Strips, Stampendous shabby pink embossing enamel, misc yellow felt/gold sequins/mini brads.
