January PTI Blog Hop



This month's challenge is to use a stamp set that has not been used yet or one that has not been used for awhile.  I decided to use the Papertrey stamp set for my project which has not seen ink or the light of day for quite some time..  This was the very first set I purchased from PTI back in 2007.   I have been a fan and follower ever since. 


Hibiscus Burst cardstock was used for the base where I created a background using that cute little flower which was stamped in Fresh Snow ink.  I then wrapped a piece of Spring Moss stitched ribbon around the card.  For the focal image, I used the Mat Stack 3 die on white cardstock and stamped the sentiment in Smokey Shadow.

To create the flower I repurposed the tissue paper that comes in between the sheets of the clear cardstock and die cut several layers using the Beautiful Blooms #2 in the large and medium size.  I attached all the layers using a fabric brad I had in my stash.  The leaves where die cut from the Delightful Dahlia die set on a piece of patterned paper from the Pretty Pastels paper collection.  I also used a Limitless Layers die to cut another piece from the same collection.   I adhered everything together using some Scor tape then used some foam pop dots to adhere to the card base.  To finish everything off I rounded the bottom corners with the Corner Chomper.

I'm excited to see what everyone else will be showcasing today.  Thanks for stopping by and Happy Hopping!
