Card Recognition

one theme, three ways

My sister works in the free ski world and was greatly effected by today's loss of athlete Sarah Burke.  So thinking of her I made these three cards, all different, but using the same elements and trying to convene the same feeling.


The first card uses the Make It Monday technique of Ghost Masking.



This one uses Jay Gee's Nook color board.



And this one uses the Play Date Cafe colors and instead of the PTI In Bloom flowers I used the leaves.

Materials: PTI In Bloom, PTI Mat Stack 1 Collection, Versafine black ink, water color pencils, PTI cream card stock, EK Success corner rounder punch

PTI In Bloom, Mat Stack 1 Collection, Waltzingmouse Stamps Frame It sentiment, PTI Mat Stack 1 die, PTI In Bloom die, Tim Holtz woodgrain embossing folder, PTI cream card stock, burlap, Versafine black ink, Tim Holtz distress stain antique linen

PTI In Bloom, Waltzingmouse Stamps Say it Loud, PTI Mat Stack 1 frame and die, burlap, PTI kraft and chocolate chip card stock, Coredinations card stock, Versafine black ink, Tim Holtz woodgrain embossing folder, Stampendous clear embossing powder, Tim Holtz Distress Stain antique linen

Erin, your masking on the first one is beautiful and I love the texture on the last two. I'm sure your sister will really appreciate them.

Beautiful cards, and a great way to show diversity in one stamp set. Thinking about getting the In Bloom die, do you use it much?

I was close to tears when I heard about Sarah Burke! It really is a great loss to skiing and women in athletics all over. These cards are beautiful and you are sweet to make them for your sister.
