I'm Back!!!

So excited to share that I'm back with Ink To Paper as a guest designer featuring products from their January and February releases! Their blog post today - you can see it HERE - features four of my cards using items from the January release. Stay tuned for more from their February release which is an AWESOME one...just sayin'. 

I never seem to have enough birthday cards on hand, so this release gave me many options! I loved creating this patterned background with the fun daisies!

STAMPS: It's A Sign: Birthday Sentiments.
INK: Aqua Mist, New Leaf (Papertrey Ink); Memento Tuxedo Black.
PAPER: Bitty Big Aqua Mist, White, Harvest Gold (PTI).
DIES: It's A Sign: Birthday Sentiments (PTI).
OTHER: Punches in 4 sizes for the flower centers.

 I wanted to showcase this set to create a masculine card. Texture was added through the embossed die, glossy accents to the candle flames and embossed vellum for the sentiment.

STAMPS: Sweet Celebration.
INK: Versamark; Blueberry Sky, Pure Poppy, Bright Buttercup, Orange Zest, New Leaf, Tropical Teal, Hibiscus Burst (PTI); Peacock Feathers and Mowed Lawn distress oxide inks used for water colored background.
PAPER: Tropical Teal, New Leaf (PTI); Water Color CS (Ranger); Vellum.
DIES: Tag Sale: Quilted Die, Mix and Mat: Postal Die, Sweet Celebration Die (PTI).
OTHER: Queen's Gold embossing powder, Glossy Accents.

Sponging the edges of all the flowers and leaves make them pop so much more on the card! Also, adding texture through glitter and enamel accents gives it more of a wow factor.

STAMPS: It's A Sign: Birthday Sentiments.
INK: Lovely Lady, Hibiscus Burst, Sweet Blush, Harvest Gold, Vintage Jadeite, New Leaf (PTI); Memento Tuxedo Black.
PAPER: Vintage Jadeite, Hibiscus Burst, Harvest Gold, White, Bitty Big Sweet Blush (PTI); Textured pink - ? Bazzil.
DIES: Sweet Celebration, Border Bling: Tin Stitch, Pierced Feature Frames (PTI).
OTHER: Crystal fine glitter (Martha Stewart), Black Enamel Accents.

I'm really getting into the Pantone color of the year which is a blueberry...almost navy shade of blue! This card has lots of fun layers happening. 

STAMPS: It's A Sign: Birthday Sentiments.
INK: Blueberry Sky, Green Parakeet, New Leaf (PTI); Versamark.
PAPER: Navy Blue, White, Kraft (PTI)
DIES: It's A Sign: Birthday Sentiments, Mix and Mat: Plaid Die (PTI).
OTHER: Pure White embossing powder (Altenew), Navy twine, Enamel dots.

That was a much longer post than my usual - lol - but hope I've inspired you to go shopping at Ink to Paper!  Thanks for stopping by and commenting!                                            ~Wanda
