February Papertrey Ink Blog Hop Challenge!

Well, my PTI stamps and dies finally arrived today, just in time for me to participate in the Blog Hop! I am showing a card I made with their Movers and Shakers: Zippers die and the Movers and Shakers stamp set, along with paper and ink in Aqua Mist, Hawaiian Shores and Smokey Shadow. These dies are so awesome! I am going to have so much playing with them and creating some wonderful cards to give and sell!

Thank You card and contest entry

This shows a card I made featuring the requirements of two different challenges. The first is from the 5th Anniversary celebration for Papertrey, Ink. (Undoubtedly, one of my favorite companies for all things related to card-making. For their 4th day of countdown activities, they showed the Favorite color combinations of their design team. I picked Heather Nichol’s fave combo, featuring Spring Moss, Aqua Mist, Classic Kraft and Vintage Cream. Additionally, I was inspired by the January 31st Tuesday Trigger from Cath Evaldson’s blog, Moxie Fab World. I really liked the stripes of color in this photo, not to mention the thought of yummy chocolate. ( sorry, I tried several times to include the photo of the Trigger here, but something wasn’t working for me. Please, go to the link to see it.) So, I put these together to come up with a card.

The card features patterned paper from PTI’s Everyday Blessings pack, Vintage Cream and Aqua Mist cardstock, Mat Stack 1 die and Mat Stack 1 layerz die, Mat Stack 1 stamp set, Inside and Out: Thank you stamp set, Background Basics: Houndstooth stamp set, Script Sentiments stamp set and Hawaiian Shores Ink. Additionally, I used Tim Holtz’s Distress Ink in Antique Linen and kraft cardstock from an unknown source. Above you see the front of the card, and I am showing a detail of the front sentiment and the inside sentiment below. Hope you enjoy it.
