PTI June Blog Hop


Hi there, and welcome to PTI's June Blog Hop!
Our inspiration photo is bright and summery!

I had 3 cards made, and then my PTI order came!

So here are the 3, with one more from the new release.


Together with the Land of Nod photo we were given color and sketch recipe cards to inspire.
We are also encouraged to work out of our comfort zone.


Clean and Simple is an effort! Layered CAS is a bit less stressful!

All PTI products

Card 2 uses these colors and this sketch:


Love the frames! 


OK, NOT CAS, but definitely layered!
Once again, all PTI dies, stamps, inks and card stock.


So much fun creating these mini framed 'art'.


And 3rd card, using these colors and this sketch:



All Shimmer card stock, & PTI dies, and as close as I come to CAS (ha!)

And then my order came!
Had to break into those luscious new sets!
Heather Nichols used a technique of softening the edges of the inked design with a 
watercolor brush for the new release. Loved the artsy look!


All PTI, except the watercolor paper and dots.

Well, there's so much to see today, 
hop on over to Nichole's blog to play along.
don't forget to give lots of love along the way!

  25. Nancy, I am totally blown away by each of your cards. Your CAS is stunning, and I can't believe how much work you put into it. And then that last card just makes me so very impatient to receive my Friendly Flowers. Wow.
