Transformation Tuesday {When I Count My Blessings}

Welcome friends! It's my turn for this week's Papertrey Ink Transformation Tuesday post! This is always such a fun opportunity to tweak an old design to create something new. The card that I chose to "transform" is clear back from August of 2018. I really like the way that card turned out, but thought it would be fun to change up the colors and floral stamps to create something a little bit more vibrant and cheery! If you'd like to read the post with that particular card, you can check it out HERE. It is the second card down in the post. 
Here is my original card, and while I like it, especially for a wedding design, I wanted to create fuller and more vibrant floral clusters as well as change out the sentiment.


I'm going to be needing quite a few thank you cards so I thought it would be fun to use a few more of the sentiments included in the Frame It Out: Many Blessings stamp set. I love how versatile everything in this set is. I was able to create this particular verse using a combination of 4 of the included sentiments. While it is perfect for Autumn and Thanksgiving, it can be used all year long depending on how you pair everything together. I used gold embossing powder, rather than silver, for this card to really keep it warm and friendly. I heat embossed the "blessings" sentiment directly onto a strip of vellum and then wrapped it around the die cut panel.

The panel was created by first die cutting a piece of Aqua Mist cardstock using the fabulous and useful Noted: Simply Stitched A2 Vertical Die. Once that was done, I used the coordinating Frame It Out:Many Blessings Die to create the frame. It was so easy to slip this piece into my mini MISTI and line up the sentiments and get those heat embossed as well. The "Blessings" portion is wrapped around and secured in the back using scotch tape. This panel is adhered to a white piece that has been die cut using the Scallop Stackers: Small Die. I just love the extra sweet detail that this adds to the design.


I recently purchased the Garden Party stamp set so I thought it would be fun to use for today's bouquets. I die cut all of the pieces I would need using the Garden Party die set and then stamped them using my mini MISTI to make it quick! I had so much fun "transforming" this card! Thanks for fluttering by!

Both cards are beautiful but I definitely favor the transformed version with the brighter and warmer colors! Once again...you've enabled me to hit up the PTI store! :-)

This is a lovely transformation, Kelly. The cheery red flowers against the aqua mist is so pretty. I see your posts and want to run to my craft room and create. Thank you for the continued inspiration.

Hi Kelly! Your new design is STUNNING!!!!! I LOVE, LOVE the new florals and in your words “vibrant colors “. Thank you SWEET lady for the lovely post. P.S. Do you do a lot of mass producing? I recently had 2 occasions that I needed multiple cards for. 5 Thank you’s & 6 Valentine’s, with one original design each. Any great hints for mass production, like Christmas?
