FMS#284 and CTS#218

Hi everyone!!!!



I've made two cards over the weekend!!!!  The first is for the Freshly Made Sketches Challenge and the other one is for CAS(E) this Sketch.  The sketches:



The FMS card:



Leaves stamps from PTI.  Stamped with Facory Green ink from MFT.
Fower stamp from Altenew.
Patterned paper from Echo Park.
Sentiment computer generated.




and the CTS card:


Done some smooshing with MFT inks and some Opalite Reflective ink on Gloss Paper.  The panel has some subtle shine from the Opalite.
Flower stamp from a local craft store, Great Impressions.
The die cut sentiment was a gift from the sweet Joyce from Cards-By-the-Sea!!!!!!   Stapled the sentiment to the card with a piece of torn vellum underneath.
I do like how this card turned out!!!   ...and I enjoyed photographing it!!!!!!





Thank you so much for spending some time with me ...your visits and comments are always appreciated so much!!!!!!

Ha Petra,
wat een mooie kaartjes allebei! Ik weet niet welke ik mooier vind. De stempel van de bloemen is ook zo prachtig! En het stukje vellum en de nietjes zijn een prachtig detail.
Groetjes,
GerJanne

Lovely cards Petra. The flowers are so pretty on both cards... vellum flowers are so precious to me... so I love them on the first one with the green leaves... the smooshed panel looks wonderful on the second card with that die-cut word... it must look so pretty in real life with the touch of opalite ink.

Hoi Petra, wat een twee mooie kaarten heb je gemaakt en omdat ze zo verschillend zijn kan ik niet zeggen welke ik mooier vind, allebei zijn ze prachtig. Je kaarten zien er steeds heel mooi en verzorgd uit met leuke details. Steeds genieten op je blog.
Lieve groetjes Miranda

Such pretty cards Petra! Love the pretty blossoms especially the velum ones! So pretty and delicate! The inky background on the second looks fantastic!

Karren said...

Gorgeous cards, Petra! Your smooshed background looks amazing and the neutral tones of your first card really makes the black pop.

stunning card Petra-love the use of the vellum x

Irene said...

Twee beauties Petra. Ik vind de eerste met dat Kraft en zwart en de lieflijke vellumbloempjes prachtig maar de background van de je 2e kaart is ook geweldig goed gelukt ...gorgeous smooshing haha!!

xx Irene

Vicki Dutcher said...

Awesome cards using the sketches love your blue background!

Kim S said...

LOVE them both!! The Factory Green with neutrals on the first is such a rich look. The hint of black/white stripe, the angled panels and the vellum flowers add even more interest!! Stunning background on the second card. Thank you for playing along with us at Freshly Made Sketches.

Loll said...

Beautiful cards Petra. Especially love your smooshed background that looks like marble. xx

I Card Everyone said...

Petra your smooshing is the perfect reflection of that gorgeous, stormy, sea!!! What an outstanding panel you've created... I've not heard of Opalite, but it's gorgeous!!!
Your FMS card is fantastic, too - LOve the stripes with that woodgrain paper!!!

Geri said...

Two stunning creations! I love the warm, clean look that the craft/black/white color combo paired with the softness of the velum creates. The wee bits of bling and the string bow are perfect for this card! The 'celebrate' card rocks....especially so because of the stapled torn edged velum banner! Fabulous inked background!

Your talent and creativity truly is endless!!!

Angela Bode said...

Petra, both cards are fabulous! I like the look of the tall tilted layers on the first card! Very fun. LOVE the vellum flowers!!! I am a big fan of smooshing or swishing with watery ink, it's one of my favorite techniques! I LOVE your gorgeous smooshed background. I don't do a lot of fancy folds either but every now and then, I take one out for a spin! :) The Criss Cross turned out MUCh easier than I thought it would be so that was fun! Hugs! Have a great week!

Nicole Parmentier said...

Wat een supermooie kaartjes weer! Je hebt zo een mooie eigen stijl! Ik heb ook even naar de achtergrond gekeken.. is dat jou uitzicht? Want dan woon je volgens mij ook prachtig!

Chrissy Larson said...

Super cool cards! I love that first one!

Becca Cruger said...

Oooo! I love the black, tan, and white scheme - such an interesting color palette and one I wouldn't have necessarily thought to put together. And your splashy blue flower design is super pretty!

Barb Ghig said...

You did an amazing job on both cards, Petra! I love how you placed the leaves stamp on the first one, and your b/g on the 2nd card is absolutely gorgeous! A lovely take on both sketches!

Pat said...

I adore your two cards for these sketch challenges Petra and love the neutral shades and pretty flowers and foliage for the FMS challenge and then the gorgeous blue with the shine from the Opalite like a beautiful sky and then the delightful flowers and sentiment as finishing touches. Congratulations on winning the Serendipity Blog hop too.
p.s. I love the sea as a backdrop this time, it looks like a great place to be. x

Martha said...

Petra, what lovely cards.
Darling flowers & pretty colors.
Fabulous take on the sketches.

Anita in France said...

These are both so pretty, Petra ... the crisp colour combo on the first is wonderfully complemented by the softness of the sweet vellum flowers ... and that background on the second is a stunner! Hugs, Anita :)

Amelia Breytenbach said...

Pragtige kaartjies Petra! Die aardse kleure is so mooi van die eerste een terwyl die blou paneel besonder mooi is met die grys blommetjies. Jou kaartjies is altyd 'n fees vir die oog.

Hi Petra, hope all is well with you, I expect you are just busy with other things at the moment. I suddenly realised I hadn't seen you about lately so thought I would just check to see if you had put any posts up lately that I might have missed. Take care. x
