Phrase Play #11

I have loved all the Phase Plays but this does have more possibilities I can see. I love piecing them and giving it a contemporary feel.  I know I'll use this Phase Play a lot.

Hello There

Hello There by PTI has so many options but I love the cupcakes. I brought out my COPICS for this card and colored the three cupcakes. I die cut the cherries and after coloring them added Glossy Accents. It's all mounted on patterned Soft Stone paper and then on plain Soft Stone.

December Blog Hop. Using Gold and Silver

I used the PTI Phrase Play #11 and the Small Sketched Stars. The background is gold paper which I embossed with an embossing folder of stars from my stash. I made stripes of different metal glitter colors for the background behind the die cut. I heat embossed the saying from Phrase Play #11 in silver and placed it on top of the die cute instead of where it was meant to me. I added the stars cut from silver paper. I did place a piece of clear card stock behind the hooray die cut so  it's protected.

Camouflaging Die Cuts

This is one of my favorite things to do is create a background and then use a die cut word. This word Thanks is from Paper Smooches I think ( I had it in my cutout word stash) The stamp and dies are from PTI Painted Poinsettias and I used one of those flowers to stamp the background with Soft Stone on Soft Stone.
