Fusion and PP#328

Hi everyone!!!!!



I've got two cards to share today!!!!!  First up is the card I've made to link at the Fusion Challenge Blog.  The sketch and inspiration photo:



I was inspired by both the sketch and the colours in the photo and made this card:



Flower stamp and die from PTI
Afrikaans sentiment saying: 'Congratulations'.





It's been ages since I last played along at The Players Players Blog!!!!   

 

A CAS card with a flower:-    nothing could be more up my alley!!!!!!!
This is my card:



Sentiment stamp from Verve.
Flower stamp from Cas-ual Fridays Stamps.  Coloured with GraphIt markers.
A strip of glitter cs and three rhinestone to complete the picture!!!  



And now it's time to start thinking what to prepare for supper!!!!  


Thanks for popping in - hope you like my cards!!!!!

Sweet Petra, my apologies for lagging with comments; between being busy and disorganized, time slips away and before I know it, you've posted a gallery of gorgeous creations! Taking a stroll through right now! Today's flowers are simply, incredibly lovely! I've not used my CAS-ual Fridays blooms for a long time; thank you for the inspiration and incentive!
Hugs~carol

Ha Petra,
allebei van die mooie kaarten! Prachtig de kaart met de banners. En de kaart met de bloem is ook zo gaaf! Knap dat je met relatief weinig materialen zulke mooie kaartjes kunt maken.
En heb je nog lekker gekookt??
Groetjes,
GerJanne

Misty Elam said...

Both beautiful cards, Petra!! I love how unique the bottom one is. The layout, that is. OH! I think I may have figured out my no reply problem. Would you let me know if it is fixed now please??

Karren said...

They are both beautiful Petra. Flowers are alway's beautiful to see and the way you've used them on your cards is great. Love the contrast with the white space and the black sentiments.
Greetings Miranda

Hi Petra! I've missed so many gorgeous cards ... I've had a struggle with receiving blog feeds through email lately, and cannot imagine why. At any rate, I'm here now and knew I'd be in for a gorgeous treat! You've turned that sketch around and created a stunner with those darling blooms! LOve your color choices, too! xx

Geri said...

Two clean and simple stunners!!! I love the color combo on your first card - so 'refreshing'. Second card showcases your fabulous coloring/shading skills beautifully! Love all the white space and love how the little black strip (with the sentiment) creates a perfectly balanced design! Sweet bits of bling on both cards :)

Monika/Buzsy said...

You are on the roll now! Fantastic cars Petra. Love both clean lay-outs. The banners look great behind the pretty flowers on the first one... the 2 paper strips look great on the second. I really love the simple and clear look on both.

MaryH said...

Love both of these cards! #1's gold & green just make me long for spring! I always love to see how you interpret the sketch, and it's always so well done. I have enjoyed seeing the way you've been using the folk art flower on #2 also. Good to see you back making cards & posting again! TFS & Hugs

LeAnne said...

These are beautiful!! Your coloring is amazing....very clean and fresh creations! Thanks for sharing your creation with us this week at the Paper Players!

Happy Dance said...

I would have never thought to make lavender flowers with the gold and green flags! They look perfect in their little silver nest in front of those flags. I love this card! It is just beautiful!! *sigh* And your pretty CAS blue flower card is lovely. I might have to CASE this one for our daughter's and sil's anniversary - it's the perfect shade of blue. It is so pretty. You are on a roll, girl! Glad I had a minute to stop by and see these beauties!! Bev

Two lovelies, Petra ... both so very pretty and both so deliciously CAS ... gorgeous! Hugs, Anita :)

Aileen Ryan said...

Wow Petra two stunning cards, love them both. Absolutely drawn to the second card, I have this stamp and have only used once, you have inspired me to get it out and use it some more. What a fabulous design.

Pat said...

Two gorgeous cards Petra and love the way you have used the yellow from the picture and the green from the sketch for the fishtail banners and added that really pretty flower, and then for the second that beautiful CF stamp so beautifully coloured, and love the way you have the sentiments forming a right angle with that lovely blue glitter paper. The rhinestones finish both perfectly too. x

Jen Mitchell said...

Love this Petra! You've done the vertical and horizontal sentiments perfectly - I love that look!

Donna Ellis said...

Lovely cards, Miss Petra! It's so good hearing from you, and seeing your pretty artwork again. The photo challenge came out beautifully, especially with the mountains in the background of your photo! Very pretty! The anniversary card has a stamp image that is beautiful! I love the little "dots" on top of the petals and the perfectly straight lines, both vertically and horizontally! Fantastic creations! hugs, de

KT Fit Kitty said...

So pretty, Petra! Gorgeous colour combo on the first one - love the banners and your card design! The second card is beautiful too - I like the vertical sentiment - nice touch!

Zelda C said...

Beautiful cards! Love all the layers and design of the first card and the placing of the sentiment in the second is so effective!
