Happy Wednesday! Day 4 of the Papertrey Ink countdown is upon us and I have a few more cards for you using both of my new sets...My Mother, My Friend and Polka Dot Parade #1. I want to thank each of you for visiting everyday...your positive comments and e-mails mean so much to me! A lot of you have sent sweet notes about how my cards make you 'smile'....THAT makes me extremely happy. If I can put a smile on your face then my day is perfect. :)
Let's get to our projects for the day, shall we!? The cards I'm sharing with you today are ones that I created when I was creating my projects for day 1. So if you are wondering WHY more cards with the same colors...that is why! :) **It has nothing at all to do with that fact that I am completely addicted to using these colors all together...nope, nothing at all!**
I'm keeping my first few cards pretty clean and simple...no layering or extra embellishments, which was a nice change for me. I am loving the solid frames in this set. I started with a basic piece of white cardstock (4" x 5.25) and then started stamping my frames. One of the nice things about these frame images is that they nestle perfectly together...kinda like a puzzle piece. Those were stamped in Hawaiian Shores, Pure Poppy and Summer Sunrise. I then used the long vine image and stamped on both sides of my frames in Simply Chartreuse. For a last touch I added a little bird, from Tweet Talk, and my sentiment, from Flower Fusion #2.
Next up is a Happy Birthday card for Mom. For this one I used both the long and short vine included in My Mother, My Friend. In between stamping the vines I stamped the three different sized flowers and also stamped a few tiny flowers.
'Happy Birthday' is from Think Big Favorites #12.
More colorful and cheery flowers on this Mother's Day card. I first stamped my sentiment and then stamped my flowers above. The leaves are from Heart-2-Heart #7.
A bit of rustic twine and a Hawaiian Shores button complete this.
And up last for today is a sweet bunny card featuring the little bunny from Polka Dot Parade #1. I started by stamping my bunnies across my white cardstock and then stamped the grass image from Hanging Out underneath them. The little flowers you see are from the set as well.
The bunny tails were die cut using the coordinating die collection and then adhered with dimensional adhesive. Lastly, I added a couple of doilies and a cute red gingham bow.
Just one more day to go until the sets can be seen in full but until then there is still more to see today from the rest of the PTI gang...
Enjoy your day!
