PTI Blog Hop


It is that time of the month for the Papertrey Ink blog hop.
Th challenge this month is to use a PTI stamp set that has not been inked or one that has been collecting dust.
I decided to combine both the PTI blog hop and The Paper Players Challenge 31 together to make my card.  Challenge 31 can be found here: http://thepaperplayers.blogspot.com/2011/01/challenge-31-sketch-challenge.html
Here is the sketch.....

I decided to pull out my Life and Mega Mixed Messages sets.  Both have been collecting dust and have been begging to be used.  I love the simplicity of Life and Mega Mixed Messages always has the right saying I am looking for.  For my card I choose to use Hawaiian Shores and Kraft card stock with my library card die cut out of rustic cream.  I added a bit of Green Boutique paper by using my eyelet lace border die.  I used Hawaiian shores and dark chocolate ink.  The saying "Friends to the end" did not show up very well, especially in the picture, in the Hawaiian shores ink, I think next time I would opt for dark chocolate.  I finished the card by adding a Hawaiian shores button with a little jute twine.  I hope you enjoy my card!

  3. Lovely colour combo. I really like how you used a pattened paper to die cut the eyelet lace. I've only used it with felt or plain card stock, but the pattern adds a great design to the card.

  17. I really like how you used the notebook die in your design. I've never used it since I bought it becuase I wasn't sure how it would look. Great card and color choices.

  18. The problem with this blog hop is that I keep seeing PTI products I didn't think I wanted presented in such a way that I'm pining for them lol. This is gorgeous. I love the colors and I'm for sure wanting the flower stamps and the notebook die now. Thanks for sharing :D
