July Blog Hop



It's that time of month for the PTI Blog Hop. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to participate last month so I'm excited to have a project to share with you tonight. This month we are to integrate text in our project, so here's my contribution.



I stamped Background Basics Text Style using dark chocolate ink onto some canvas material. Using the Cuttlebug large flower dies, I cut three flowers from the material and cut three small flowers in berry sorbet cardstock. For the card base I used spring moss and cut a strip of kraft and stamped it with Background Basics Retro in vintage cream and adhered it to the bottom of the card. I used my Scor Pal to add some embossed lines above and below the flowers. The button flowers I had in my stash that I tied with some rustic twine. I tied some berry sorbet twill ribbon around my card to finish it off.

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the hop!

  19. I missed PTI's blog hop last month too! Its good to get to play this time around and of course, I'm glad to see you here too! :> Your card is perfectly sweet! Love all your custom patterns you've used (would you believe I have misplaced my Background Basics: Retro?!! I'm going nutty looking for it. I don't think I have ever misplaced a stamp in my life and now I'm missing a whole set!). Have fun hopping! :>
