Another MUSE#156, Another NBUS#6 and #GDP026



Hi everyone!!!!


Three cards to share this morning!!!!
I've got another Thank You card to link at the MUSE Card Club where Michele has this beauty to inspire us!!!!

http://icardeveryone.blogspot.com/2016/03/muse-card-club-challenge-156.html

My second entry:
  


I've been inspired by Michele's roses, the diagonal line, the bold 'Thanks' sentiment and the enamel dots.
Rose stamp from PTI.
The sentiment die cut was a gift from the sweet Joyce from Cards-by-the-Sea.  Joyce was so kind to sent me a lot of die cut words at the end of last year and I have such fun using them on my cards!!!  And the very sweet Hazel from My Card Attic has sent me the enamel dots I've used on my card.  Another big Thank you again to these two lovely ladies who have really spoiled me with wonderful goodies to play with!!!




My next card is another entry for Darnell's NBUS#6 Challenge and I will also be linking it at the Global Design Project Blog.



 This is my card:



The border and sentiment stamps I've inked for the first time.  Both stamps are form Altenew.
The sweet little doily and square die cuts was amongst the goodies Hazel has sent me, as was the enamel dots. 
Flower die from MFT.


Last night when I visited the Global Design Challenge Blog I noticed that all the participants are Stampin' Up Demonstrators and now I'm not sure if only SU demonstrators may take part.  I couldn't find anything to say if the challenge is only for SU demonstrators, so I hope that I'm allowed to take part!!!!
 


I've really enjoyed making this card and I've made another one using the same idea:


The Altenew sentiment stamp is also NBUS.



That's what I've got to share today!!!  Thanks so much for the visit - always a pleasure having you here!!!

So vreeslik mooi gedoen... elke een op sy eie!
Ek hou van jou interpretasie van die muse... ek kyk nog heeltyd vas in die tegniek wat Michele gebruik het en kyk net wat het jy gedoen!
Mooi detail op jou ander 2 skepping!
Groete

Beautiful cards Petra. Love the pretty roses on the first one and the slanted panel... great take on the inspiration photo. The second card is so pretty. Love the doily with the layered flowers... great sketch and elements.

Hello, Petra! So sorry I haven't been around for the past week - I've been sick with a nasty flu. Still miserable but I finally did some crafting and I wanted to get caught up on your cards that I missed. You've made some gorgeous cards! I always enjoy seeing your version of the muse card or sketch or whatever - I love the Petra touch! Your second and third cards really caught my eye - love the shapes you layered and the cute little doily, and I also appreciate the subtle differences between both cards. Beautiful!

Hi Petra,
wat heb je weer schitterende kaarten gemaakt, dat jij zo perfect kunt stempelen, de borders aan de zijkanten, dat zou mij met geen mogelijkheid lukken, ik ben er weer helemaal weg van echt super..
groetjes,
Ans

These are all just fabulous!

Krista Frattin said...

Thank-you for taking the Global Design Project Challenge this week! Your entry card is stunning!!!!!! I love the layers and the design!

Rosemary said...

How DO you find the time to create these lovelies? Of course I'm going to say straight out #1 is gonna be my fav of this trio. Primarily because I love the roses, but also that design treatment is gorgeous! (Hazel did a neat one with this idea too). Love your color choices. How wonderful that you've had such sweet RAKs shared, and you've put them to splendid use. Love the design and all the colors & elements on #2 & #3, and the border treatments are just simple & lovely. Again - your graphic style too. The Altenew stamps are great I'm finding. Haven't got this set though...and I love the way you've combined the graphic design of the borders with the delicate details on the doily and embellies. You're just amazing! TFS & Hugs

Joyce said...

Stunning MUSE card--love the look of that bold thanks against the black, and your roses are stunning. And, your other cards are stunning as well. Love your focal points.

Striking card Petra with so many details to look at. Thanks so much for sharing your talents with us and joining in with this week's Global Design Project!

Jen Mitchell said...

Your card for the Muse Card Club is so beautiful. The roses have such lovely depth and I love how you've done the sentiment as white on black! And I had to look twice before I realized you made two versions of the second card. I love that you changed it up to have a vertical sentiment!

Brian King said...

Beautiful card, Petra! I love all of the details and shapes you used to create this lovely look. Thank you so much for playing along with this week's Global Design Project sketch challenge!

Anita in France said...

cm said...

I'm smitten with your stunning flowers on your first card and crushing over the graphic gorgeous of the second and third! Adding my cheers and applause to the others before me: your ability to combine a variety of elements and layers, yet still maintain CAS-iliciousness is ever so impressive! The three here...*awe-mazing*!
