Papertrey Ink's SAF Remix 2016

Instead of having a Make It Monday technique video at Papertrey Ink this week they are having a Stamp-a-Faire Remix.  The challenge involves taking a card you had made during SAF that you don't exactly like that much and redoing it.  Nicole also gave us permission to make a card using one of the SAF technique videos we didn't get to participate in during the event.  I had to make some birthday cards so I decided to use Lizzie's wonderful video "Mastering Drips and Splatters" for my card.  I figured a splatter background would look similar to confetti for my birthday cards.

I absolutely loved Kay Miller's card using PTI's Paperclipping Birthday set.  You can see her gorgeous card here.  I decided to mimic my card after hers.  In fact I decided to make three cards using color schemes from various PTI's newsletters.


One thing I love about PTI is the versatility of the products.  The Paperclippings collection includes an overlay one piece type die cut with all the details connected together.  But there is also a stamp set in which the die cut pieces are separate.  I couldn't justify spending money for the whole collection.  But..I was still able to mimic Kay's card with the detail stamps and dies.  I also used some silver stars RAKed to me from a sweet PTI forum member.  I didn't feel like watercoloring as Kay did so I simply used my Clarity Stencil brushes to make a soft oval of color to act as a grounding piece for my stamped die cuts.  I think the splatters make a festive backdrop for this birthday card.  It almost looks like confetti.  The only thing I didn't like was how the colors became muted when splattered.  I made the last card to be a masculine card but the pure poppy ink I used to splatter turned pink.    Oh I almost forgot I added some clear wink of stella to the first two card for some sparkle.

It's amazing how different each card looks just using different color recipes. Great job, Shelly!

These are fabulous, Shelly! I've added these to my Pinterest board. I am so glad you shared how you used the Clarity brushes to create the oval background; I am definitely going to try this.
