Path of Positivity Challenge - Determination - with Pickled Potpourri


I made this card for the Path of Positivity Challenge - Determination.  The challenge made me think of this silhouette image from Pickled Potpourri called Fly.  Have you ever wished you could fly?  I have.  There is something about a swing when one is high in the air that seems almost like flying.  So if you are determined to fly, just grab a swing and take off!  

My card uses digital papers from Pickled Potpourri.  The stripped paper is from the Distressed Black and White collection, and the pattern is from the More Distressed Black and White collection.  I cut the image using Spellbinders Standard Circles Large and matted it using Classic Scalloped Circles Large with black cardstock.  Rhinestones were added around the circle.

Red Rubber Inspirational #134 - Just Wing It


Drea is leading the Red Rubber Inspirational Challenge this week - Just Wing It.  This is one of my favorite stamp sets, called Flutter By from Red Rubber Designs.  Today I'm trying a new technique introduced by Maile Belles, a design team member from PaperTrey Ink.  
It is called Cutout Panels.  You can see her tutorial here.

For my card I stamped the images on XPress It blending cardstock for Copics using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with  Copic markers ( YR12, YR14, YR16, YR18, YG95, YG97, Y06, E09, E39).  Then I used a sponge and cloud template with Palette Reflection Blue ink to make the cloud background.  Next I cut out the panel, as detailed in Maile's tutorial and trimmed around the butterfly.  I used a strip of burnt orange Bazzill cardstock and embossed it with a Sizzix flower embossing folder to go behind the cutout panel.  Then the front card is popped up on top with dimensional tape.  

Wouldn't you like to enter this challenge using some stamps with wings?  Come join in.

Tulip by Pickled Potpourri


I think Tulip by Pickled Potpourri is such a pretty digital stamp.  It is simple, yet elegant.  It makes a pretty card for almost any occasion.  In my sample I have cut the image with Spellbinders Labels 4 and placed it over a lace die cut.  I colored it with Copic markers and used the Quik Pak Party in Pink By Red Rubber Designs for the background patterned cardstock.  Corner jewels were added for accent.
