Simple Circles

A little while back a friend at work asked if I could make her a card. She new I loved to make them and offered to buy one from me. Of course I said no, I need excuses to make cards. I asked what kind of card she would like, what was her friend like. She said that she was girly, but that I should just make whatever I wanted. I coerced a color scheme from her and Below is what resulted.

The colors were purple and teal. I have to apologize for not being able to find my inspiration photo. It is in my Google feed reader somewhere, but for the life of me I cannot locate it. I will update if I do. Sorry for the photo quality, I gave it away before I could look at the pictures.

I loved all the layers in this card.

Thankfully she was thrilled with the card. And actually ended paying with a craft off her own. One of these guys…

Mines name is Bruno. Hope today you get to create something Beautiful today!

Supplies: White Cardstock, Purple Cardstock, PTI Hawaiian Shores Cardstock, PTI Aqua Mist Cardstock, PTI Fillable Frames #8 Mini Stamp Set, PTI Vintage Button Collection, SU For All you do butterfly stamp.

Pretty Peonies Anniversary Set

I finally got around to making my second order of PTI (Papertrey Ink – See my links for the site). I kinda went crazy, but I was going to be in the states and that meant NO Shipping costs. Lets just say I took advantage of it.

I got 9 new stamp sets and a ton of new dies and some paper and ribbon and buttons, okay I think that is all. My plan is to go through each set and make at least 1 card in the next month or two.

Today I am posting from my favorite set. Pretty Peonies vol.6 no.19. This special anniversary set has a ton of images I can’t wait to use, but I started simple. I am not super creative but I will try to to diverge more as I go along, for now, I just recreated the beautiful card that Nicole Heady created during the release of the set. I used Daydreamer vol.5 no.64 for the circles.

Her Card is Here.

This is my recreation.
