Transformation Tuesday with Papertrey Ink

Hi there, thanks for popping in to see me on Papertrey Tuesday. It's been awhile since I was in sync with my own blog plans I had for posting Tuesday Wednesday and Thursday each week. I'm working on changing that!

I love the Transformation Tuesday Challenge at PTI where we are encouraged to do a remake on a card we have created in the past. There are lots of good reasons to do this. I find it is a tool for increasing my design skills, even if it's just to fine tune what I love and don't like. Not liking the way a card turned out is another option for re-creating it, or changing up the season or colors, for example. 

My card today has a layout that I really DID like from one card and using it again for a second card really helps when wondering what to make next. 
Here's the first card. 

And here's the remake. And the link HERE if you want to see how I made it. 

I chose to make my new card in the same layout and even using the same background DSP and die cut white piece. I added vellum on top to mute the brightness and the print a bit for my fall themed card.   I also wanted to give the style an update from elegant to more graphic. Thus, I used less layers, and instead of sequins I added twine and a wooden leaf element at the top. 

The supplies are from Papertrey Ink's Mini Market Kit: Color Pop Autumn which was in my stash. The printed die cuts were provided and it feels good to put them on a card! 

Thanks for coming by today! It's turned into a beautiful afternoon here and I will be having a time on the lake to fish this evening. Making the most of the nice weather while it lasts.

Both cards are beautiful, Cindy! This time of year I'm all in love with fall colors so I'm finding your remake highly appealing. You used the same designer paper on both cards, but it looks entirely different. Interesting! Keeping up with three posts a week is not always easy. I can't do it every week, but still trying to stick to my itinerary as it makes me use a variety of stamps. Just have fun!
