CTS#113 and another FMS#176




Hi everyone!!!



Another post with two cards to share!!!
First up is my take on the sketch over at the CAS(E) this Sketch Blog


 
 
This is my card:





Flower stamp from a local craft shop, Great Impressions.  
Leaves stamp and die from PTI.
Sentiment stamp from Verve. 
Given the U some shine with Clear 3D Gloss.
Used some paper clips, sequins and black plastic dots to complete the picture.




This is the sketch over at the Freshly made Sketches Blog for the week.



and my second take on it:





The piece of patterned paper is from Glitz.
Flower and flourish dies from MFT.
Afrikaans sentiment saying: 'Thank you very much'.




Thanks so much for popping in - have a great day!!!!
Till next time!!!

Your cards are unique. Love how you place them against the outdoors. Beautiful!

I always have a tough time commenting on the cards you create. These two are no exception. The use of the paper clips in genius and for me at least is the crowning touch. Your second cards is outright gorgeous. The offset panel sets them apart. Excellent Petra.- Jim

Awesome! I like both, but the 2nd one sings to me! :) Looks like you are having some super cloudy weather going on. I sure love seeing the background of your photos. Such a gorgeous view -- have a great week end mf!

Leigh Penner said...

Fabulous cards! I especially love the first one and how you added the paper clips! Great take on the sketch!

Donna Ellis said...

These are wonderful, Petra! Love them both, but I especially like the top card, where the scent of the flower is floating lazily to the top! So cute! hugs, de

Beautiful cards Petra. Love the paper clips. Neat idea. You always have a nice take on these sketches. Well done once again. The rolled flower is so pretty on the second. The scallop border is wonderful. Have a great weekend!

Gorgeous as always! I love your clever use of paper clips! And your FMS card, with that beautiful layered flower is brilliant!

Geri said...

I adore the fun & whimsical feel of your first card...the paperclips steal the show and are guaranteed to earn this card a spot in the winner's circle! So creative!!!

Your second card is stunning, exudes elegance and creates beautiful movement diagonally across the card! Sweet patterned paper!

Anita in France said...

Such fabulous floral beauties, Petra ... the second's so wonderfully full of depth and dimension ... and so striking! The first is just delicious ... soft, sweet and delicate ... love all that vellum ... and what a fun touch those paperclips are! Anita :)

Cindy Lovell said...

Hannelie said...

Ongelooflike mooi kaartjies Petra!
So slim die paperclips, altyd n storie om vellum sonder onooglike gom merke te laat klou!
Jou FMS kaartjie is net perfek met die swart aksente!

Marika said...

Paper clips! How clever to use them. :D I always struggle when sketch has those half-ribbon-ends since I never know what to do with them and I never would have thought of paper clips and they fit Perfectly on your card design and to the sketch! Awesome card, Petra!

MaryH said...

Each of these cards is such a beauty. I will confess that #1 got my attention with your sketch interpretation using the paper clips. That was pure genius. Love the flower choice too. Liked #2 equally well with all the colors & the pretty embellies...especially that scallop trim. TFS &Hugs

Becca Cruger said...

I love how I can just look at a card and think - now THAT is a Petra card. You've got such an amazing, tailored style! I LOVE LOVE LOVE that paper clip panel. Super cool! And your paper flowers are always amazingness.

Narelle Farrugia said...

Absolutely stunning! I love how you layer your cards and always use the perfect embellishments! Thanks for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches this week!

Angie said...

You are a master at sketch interpretation! I LOVE the first with that beautiful shade of coral. I must remember to add velum over bright pieces. This looks amazing and the paper clips, oh my!!! I love how you tilted the sketch on the second card. Beautiful scallop border and flourish.

Mynn Kitchen said...

These are both AMAZING, as usual, friend! I LOVE LOVE LOVE the use of the paper clips--absolute brilliance! The way you used the sketch on the second is genius, too! HUGS to you! Mynn xx

Absoluut pragtig Petra. Mal oor die paper clips op die eerste een en die blom op die tweede een is baie treffend.
Mooi bly
