PTI September Blog Hop

It is time for the September Papertrey Blog Hop.  I enjoy not only the challenge of the blog hop but being able to visit other PTI blogs.  It is win win all the way around.  This month the challenge was to show off different techniques that you have learned from fellow bloggers.  I really enjoyed this challenge because I have been following this persons blog for about 2 months now after I found it.  I love this persons clean style but I also love fact that she usually has some kind of background going on in her cards.  It could be the use of a background stamp and impression plate or a patterned paper.  This seemed to be a piece that I sometimes lacked in my cards.  So I have challenged myself to try to do this with my cards, so this month challenge was right up my alley.  So the blog I have been following is none other than Laurie over at Soapbox Creations.  I am well aware that she does not know me and also does not know that she has inspired me!  Thanks Laurie for your wonderful creations and for inspiring me!  Check out her blog at  http://soapboxcreations.blogspot.com/

My card today uses Book Print Impression plate on the background of my simply chartreuse paper.  Since we in the full swing of fall, I used autumn paper from Autumn Abundance.  Lastly, I used my Four of a Kind set that I got at CHA.  I hope you enjoy the card.

Stamps: Four of a Kind
Paper: Orange Zest, Simply Chartreuse, Autumn Adundance

  7. The flower is great. This is the first time I've been able to participate with the PTI fun being from Wales so the time difference never allowed. I'm also new to PTI products and have only just had my first order so am having loads of fun seeing what others create with the items.
