Papertrey Transformation Tuesday Challenge

I decided to go back to a floral card I did in 2017 and wanted to spruce it up a bit for Papertrey Transformation Tuesday Challenge.   Here’s a look at my original card.


My original card seemed too messy.  I liked it but I wanted less variety in flower colors and wanted the sentiment to be framed by the flowers.  I much prefer my transformation card.  Supplies are listed below.



  • Cardstock: Stamper’s Select White (Papertrey); watercolor (Ranger)
  • Ink: Ripe Persimmon, Candied Applie, Mustard Seed,  Mowed Lawn, and Hickory Smoke Distress ink (Ranger); Onyx Black (Versafine)
  • Stamps: Brushed Blooms (Papertrey)

Papertrey’s Transformation Tuesday

So I wasn’t super excited about this card I made for this week’s Make It Monday or Papertrey July Blog Hop and since I still had all my supplies sitting out, I decided to transform it for Papertrey’s Transformation Tuesday.  I like the card so much better!  Hope you do too!  Supplies are listed below.



  • Cardstock: Blue (Bazzill); Taken with Teal (Stampin Up); Ruby Red (Stampin Up); Soft Stone (Papertrey)
  • Ink:  Versamark
  • Stamps: Salt Air: Fauna (Papertrey); Salt Air Sentiments (Papertrey);
  • Dies:  Reef Builder Dies (Papertrey)
  • Accessories: Perfect pearls (Ranger); Sequins; clear wink of stella; silver embossing powder

Papertrey’s Transformation Tuesday Challenge

I selected the card shown below from my blog post in February to make-over for Papertrey’s Transformation Tuesday.  I love this set of pattern papers and felt like I could take my original card into a different direction.


I wanted to keep the water colored looking pattern paper as my base again but instead of making a basket of flowers, use those flowers as accents on another card.  The card looks completely different since the sentiment becomes the focal point rather than the flowers but still maintains the floral style of the card.  I prefer the redone version.  What do you think?  Hope you get some crafting time in next week!  Supplies listed below.



  • Cardstock: White 110 lb. (Recollections);
  • Patterned Paper: Bloom & Grow Patterned Paper Collection (Papertrey)
  • Stamps:  Stylish Sentiments: Birthday (Papertrey)
  • Ink: Onyx Black (Versafine)
  • Accessories: Moonshine sequins;

Papertrey’s SAF Inlaid Wood Challenge
