Spring Hills for PTI 9th Anniversary Challenge 10

Hello Again!  Today I got a wild hair (or is it hare?) to join the challenge at the PTI 9th Anniversary called the Alphabet Crafting Challenge.

It called for us to use the letters of our first name and to follow specific rules for each. So, for the J, which asked for a jewel, I used a bright yellow acrylic circle to represent the sun. The first E asked for embossing, so I used a Papertrey Ink Background Basics: Art Deco stamp and clear embossed it with off-white powder and VersaMark ink. This made for a hilly background area and also adds some texture to the card. For the A, the rules called for using a border. There are two. One around the focal point pictorial scene, and by layering the card front onto the card base, I have a second one. The two N's asked for new products. The Art Deco set and the PTI Spring Hills sets I purchased a while ago, but have never used. So new, right? The final E uses emboss resist made by sponging Stampin' Up! ink in Certainly Celery and Memento Summer Sky onto the spring scene, then wiping off the embossed part with a paper towel. Can you see the two sheep that I colored gray? Hope so. What fun doing this card.! I need birthday cards, so used the Happy Spring Birthday stamps also from the Spring Hills set for the sentiment. Yay, Jeanne is done! Oh, the paper is all from SU.

   Whew, a lot of work, the photography being the hardest part,  but I am happy with the results. Can you see the shiny embossing for the hills picture and for the sentiment? 

Thanks for stopping by!
