PTI Swap Fun

PTI stamps and dies are among my favorite! So, when a swap opens on SCS, I join! Here's my latest swap creations that will be mailed out soon to the swap hostess.

Top card was created using sentiment from PTI Butterfly Dreams set, the In Bloom Impression Plate, Butterfly die; and, the flower was created using the Delightful Doilies B die.

Middle card: Newsprint stamp for subtle background around stamped image, pumpkin is from the Spooky Sweets set, flourishy leaf is from Turning a New Leaf set. An impression plate was used on the stamped image panel. The fluted cardstock panel was inked using distress inks, a little spray of October Afternoon Sprinklers Paper Doily ink, an image from the PTI Year of Flowers Collection was stamped on the fluted cardstock but is very difficult to see (it did give the panel a little more dimension though!). The to set off the fluted panel, I gave it a generous spray of Perfect Pearls mist.

Card Candy: Flowers were created using the scalloped circle spellbinders die for the white flower, Friendly Flower die and flower fusion #1 die for the lavendar flower. The flowers are adhered to the Sending You die; leaves from Sending You die (part of the lavendar flower) were stamped with a leaf from the In Bloom set; Larger Than Life die embellishes the white flower.

A die cut category is also part of this swap (die cuts to swap not shown in this post!)
