oh oh oh it's magic - Pattern Play Day 2

Wanna make some magic?  All you need is PP, Distress Inks and embossing powder.  Another Jennifer M. lesson over at Pattern Play.  Take those  problem PPs and make somethin' pretty out of 'em.  Artsy fartsy.

So much going on here, eh?  And yet they're basically one layer cards!  They started out as the left hand side of this:

12x12 sheet of K&Co Que Sera PP.  I love this paper but again, found it difficult to use on cards.  But ink, heat emboss, ink, remove emboss - and you've got gorgeousness.  Add a digi sentiment and be still my heart.  Two anniversary cards for my stash.

Happy weekend.  I'm gonna be celebrating the fact that I'm not 50 yet (OK, it's gettin' pretty darn close).

Paper: cardbase Buttinette, PP K&Co
Stamps: BG Hero Arts, digi sentiment Mama Elephant
Ink : Distress Ink Worn Lipstick and Spiced Marmelade
Tools: heat tool, iron
Other:  clear embossing powder, packing paper, bling


  1. These are both amazing Maria! You've taken some fun paper and turned them into fantastic cards. Wow. So bright and bold, and beautiful. Wonderful. Bev

  2. Wow, I love that big flower on the first one, and I love the monochromatic look.

  3. Wow, what a transformation!! These cards are amazing - I love the colour palette you chose when changing up the patterned paper!

  4. Wow - great cards. I am going to learn from you here... Too bad the class overlapped with my trip to Texas, would have loved to participate.... Afterwards its just not as much fun...
    Looking forward to my package :) - have a great weekend!

  5. Love these cards! You have used the technique wonderfully x

  6. stunning!!! the solid color banners are perfect over that gorgeous paper. LOVE

  8. I'm usually afraid to use such bold paper, but you've pulled it off beautifully.
