PTI Transformation Tuesday #21

TRANSFORMATION TUESDAY
CHALLENGE #21


I'm joining Lizzie Jones as she gives a makeover to a card that she created for the September release. I think both of her cards are very pretty, but the makeover card has a favorite color scheme of mine and who can resist that glittery sentiment? 😉

I like the old card design using the Rosie Posie daisy flower so I thought changing up the colors and embellishments a little bit would make a nice Thanksgiving card.

I don't make shaker cards often, but this was totally fun and I love the way it turned out. Thanks Lizzie for the great instructions and video~I will definitely leave my (oh so many) sequins out on my desk to use for more shakers in the near future! 😊

I followed the video directions pretty closely here.
Stenciled the background with pale blue ink onto the white panel with a Heidi Swapp flower stencil.  
The Scalloped Framlet is a Sizzix die cut using PTI Stampers Select White cs.
The medium size of three butterflies is cut from PTI Butterfly Cover Plate out of Shimmery Aqua paper (which kinda looks like a bow, maybe). 
All panels are adhered to White card base

Packaging With Printed Papers

I am adding my little gifty package to this week’s MIM challenge.  
Melissa Phillips has a photo tutorial which you can view along with her absolutely beautiful packaging HERE.

My pillow box package  is decorated with 'Spiral Bouquet' flowers and leaves (which, btw resemble tea leaves 😊).  The tag (Marvy Punch) has 'thanks' from Swoosh and leaves from Gran's Garden die cut from black card stock, 'Scribble heart' is from Tim Holtz.  I was able to put 6 tea bags in this little gift pak going to my neighbor who picked up my mail for 4 days while I was out of town.
