February 2014 PTI blog hop!

I swear the months go faster & faster!!
It's time for the PTI blog hop!
This month the theme is SPRING!
I've dusted off my garden variety, year of flowers & year of flowers titles for my spring themed card! The image is colored with prismacolor pencils.
 I used the button card die, as well as the seed packet frame die- perfect for layering!
The background is embossed with the giga guidelines 1 plate.
The yummy 1.5" crochet/velvet center in pink ribbon runs the center, with olive faux suede leaves & olive leaves to bring the center to focus!
 I do LOVE spring, but our ski season only arrived 2 weeks ago, so I'm kind of hoping it doesn't warm up too much around here too soon! I'm perfectly happy for all of you that have been buried in snow for months to have a reprieve though!
 Thanks for stopping by!
Happy Hopping!

May Arts & Stampendous!

May Arts & Stampendous have teamed up again!
Here's what I came up with:

I kept seeing her as a mermaid, so I went with that feel & added the 3" gold mesh to tie it together!
You can barely see the flock, but her mica frame is very cool! There is also some micro gold glitter on her crown & necklace. The background is watercolored with ink- and I used some delicata ink to her hair to add more shimmer.

What do you think?
I was also sent the 'filly sketch' stamp! I decided to embellish a box with this image. I used a shipping box & did a quick acrylic wash of paint over the exterior.
I used more delicata ink to stamp her (stamping off for the image on the left), and on the image on the right I've embossed with the aged gold embossing enamel

I added 1.5" grosgrain striped ribbon in pink to the top & bottom, and also created a pull.

More of that gold glitter to top the glitter crown from the kraftboard set!
Pink 3/8" velvet woven ribbon finishes the sides. 

Another kraftboard element used here- I used the aged gold embossing powder over the entire piece & after heating stamped the 'scrolled medallion' image into it (I inked it with delicata first so that it wouldn't stick).

I used another small piece of 3/8" velvet on the inside to cover the seam & give it a finished appearance!

What do you think? Shipping box to keepsake box!
That's it for me today- but there's inspiration all week! Make sure you leave comments on all the stops for your chance to win of 3 sets of the following:
1 spool of ribbon and a jumbo cling set and a handle.

That means there will be 3 winners at the end of the week!
To win:  comment on any stop along the way. 

Stampendous Hop!
