A Couple of Your Paper Pantry Swap Projects

I participated in two of the swaps at Your Paper Pantry for the month of July. The first one was an ATC swap with a patriotic theme. I found this cool little drum image on line and decided to cut it in fours for the card. The backing is Bristol paper that I sprayed with some Pearl Perfect Pearls mixed with water in a Mini Mister. I added a little gold star sequin for a little extra pizzazz. I love the brightness and shimmer of the background.

Paper: Paper Cannon Drawing Bristol, Great White Imaging Photo Paper
Ink etc.: Pearl Perfect Pearls
Miscellaneous: Gold star sequin

The second swap was a card swap with the theme of hello/friend. It's a very simple card as far as design. We had to make six of them. The image is one I won from the Digi Doodle Shop. I used my Derwent watercolor pencils to color it. The image and sentiment were cut out with Nestabilities and the purple layer was cut with deco edged scissors (yes Jan, I broke them out again--LOL).
Paper: Recollections, Cannon Drawing Bristol, Bazzill
Stamp: Papertrey Ink (sentiment)
Inks: Derwent Watercolor pencils
Tools: Nestabilities Large Deckled Rectangles (S4-202) and Classic Ovals Large (S4-110)
Miscellaneous: ribbon, Prima flower, acrylic gem
Normally my Design Team post for Papercraft Star would be on Friday, but since we're starting the Blog Hop that day my post will be tomorrow. Sure hope you're planning on coming to join us for the hop! You have through noon on Saturday to submit your project for the circles challenge this week.
Til tomorrow.


  1. These are beautiful Tracy! I just pulled out my watercolor pencils and used them for the first time on a stamped image. Is that ever fun! It makes you look at all your stamps in a whole new way! I better quit before I write a book!...Nancy :o)

  2. You did a really nice job on both of these Tracy. I love the sparkle on the patriotic one and the image on the 2nd is very pretty.

    Thanks for sharing,
