PTI June Blog Hop


So glad you could stop by today!  I am super excited about this month's PTI Blog hop!  If you follow my blog you know how much I love Pinterest!  SO, when I saw Nichole's challenge was a super fun picture from Pinterest, I had to play along!  Here is the inspiration picture...

I was reading a thread over at the PTI forum and it was really interesting to read about what people were seeing from this picture!  Some went straight to the silver hangers, some to the cubbies...Ted...;) but I went straight to the colors on the wall!  I went for a pretty literal interpretation of those colors!  But I think its kinda fun....

I used my Copic Airbrush and picked 8 Copic markers that I thought matched pretty well to the wall in the picture!  Then I just sprayed some stripes and then added a little misty look with the brush tip of the Copic!  I stamped the sentiment in True Black and added one of my favorite little embellies!  I matted the whole thing with a piece of Hibiscus Burst and added the whole thing with some foam tape to a white card base! 

I can't wait to see all of the cards and all the different interpretations of this picture!  If you want to see a full list and play along, go to Nichole's blog! 

And just a little side note...today is my little R's 7th birthday!  She of course had to make a card too!  Here is her card...


She said the picture reminded her of a sunrise!  SO cute!  I love love that she likes to make cards with me!  She told me she wants to be a card maker when she grows up...I am pushing for a Nurse like me...but hey!  I am cool with making cards too!  She is so fun!  She even set her card up and took her own pics with my iPhone! 

So happy birthday girly!!  How in the world did you get to be 7? 

Thanks for stopping today!

This is really lovely. I love how the colors flow seamlessly together. Gorgeous. Riley's card is awesome, too, though! Great colors and nothing is better than a handwritten sentiment.

What a great job on your airbrushed card -- I still need practice! LOVE your result!!!
Looks like DD is following closely (already at 7) in Mom's footsteps!!! How fun; wish my DD was younger and had time to play with me!!!

Dana said...

Wonderful card! Love the soft colors!

Joyce said...

Your card is beautiful. I love how the colors looked when applied like that. Please tell your daughter that her card is lovely, and that she has a great future as a professional card maker. Hallmark--Watch Out!!

Gerdine said...

Love this! Beautiful!

Jennifer K said...

This turned out beautifully. And happy birthday to your little one. 7 is such a great age.

christy compton hall said...

That's right... nurses moonlighting as card makers - just perfect :) My DD helped make my card too and it's such a joy!

I love both the cards! I find myself intimidated by my airbrush so I'm inspired to see what you've done with it. It's just beautiful!

Jenny said...

Love the muted rainbow effect Laurie, gorgeous card :)

Lisa said...

Laurie this is so soft and delicate...I love it!

Karen C. said...

You've created such a soft and sweet background with the copics and airbrush. It's so pretty. Your daughter's card is very colourful and fun too. Great for a warm summer day!!

Linda said...

It's beautiful! So soft and delicate and lovely. Now I need an airbrush!! Does it ever stop????

Jill said...

Terrific idea to airbrush the background with Copics, Laurie! I have an airbrush system, but . . . have never used it. (Hangs head in shame.) Precious card by your DD! Happy 7th birthday to her! Happy June Hopping!

Terri said...

Very pretty. Love the airbrushed background. Happy Birthday to your DD. I think her card is great too.

Sue Lelli said...

Laurie, LOVE your airbrushing! LOVE your daughter's card bunches, too!

Suzanne said...

Oh Laurie, I missed your amazing creations! Everyone needs a dose of Laurie Willison every day! I love how soft your background is, and the flower is just so stinking cute!

Jay Gee said...

Lovely card Laurie, so soft and pretty. Happy Birthday to little R :)

Lovely cards ladies! Happy Birthday to little R!

Sue Ann said...

LOVE the beach scene card ........ that is totally my scene :) And as for you Miss LB ........ I need some of those classes ..... your card is simply amazing and so clean and WOW at the same time. Totally FABBY job by LB and her little acorn. Happy Birthday TO YOU Miss Riley!!!!

Sarah said...

Such a sweetheart! And an amazing conceptualization.

And your card is pretty awesome too -- I love that you airbrushed the background instead of just coloring it!

Marlena M. said...

Happy Birthday!

Both your cards are beautiful. ;)

Lorraine said...

Wow, this is so beautiful! I love your soft take on the photo and the pink focal color!

This is so soft and pretty.

Such a lovely card, the airbrush technique is perfect for this, looks great!!

Taheerah (*LittleMissT*) said...

Just love this Laurie, but hen I'm not surprised - I love all your creations!! The airbrushed Copics gradient works so well - really must get me one if those airbrush systems!!

Christina said...

Such a pretty, soft wash of color on your background--I love it paired with the bold sentiment. Happy birthday to your young card-maker in training!

Wendy said...

So pretty laurie, how cool that you can airbrush with copics, looks amazing and the little flower is a very sweet touch.

Laura Isham said...

Your cards are always so beautiful and inspiring, Laurie, and this is no exception. Your card is so soft and pretty and the flower is placed really perfectly.

Love your daughter's card, too. Looks like she is well on her way to being professional card maker!

Gina said...

I love how soft and sweet your card is. I have such a "literal" brain that I went for an absolutely literal translation of the colors on the wall - but I really, really like yours better! (and mmmm, I love your button jars) And your daughter's card - oh my gosh. I have one who just turned 7 a little over a month ago so I must admit, her card totally pulled at my heart!! That is something my Katherine would do. Tell her she did a fabulous job as well! :)

Jen Carter said...

Happy birthday a little late Rylee! Your card is precious! I love how you captured the perfect sunrise scene! You are so talented!

And Laurie, I love the way you made the colors on the background! Very pretty!

Ruza's Craft Corner said...

I really love this card! All that softness, with the sentiment and flower popping out at you! Gorgeous CAS card! ;D

Amy said...

I so wanted to do this challenge! I was thinking of using the color too from the photo. You have done it so well here Laurie! R's card is just precious and tell her I love the beach too! Right now, P's cards are more collagy but they are so sweet!

Andrea M said...

Love your copic take on the inspiration pic!!! What a soft pretty card! Love it!

Katie {choc0holic} said...

Your interpretation is just what I would have tried had I not been out of town leading up to the Blog Hop. I love that you used your Copics to mimic the wall, as that is what jumped out at me as well. Happy belated b-day to your sweet girl!
