January PTI Blog Hop


Aren't Valentine's so much fun to create? Not a clue as to whom I created this for, however, it was created using
CARD PATTERNS Sketch #99


I also used Cupcake Inspirations photo below as my inspiration for the colors & background paper that I created


AND
The Paper Trey Ink
Blog Hop Challenge
(create a new project using Paper Trey Ink stamps that might be collecting dust)
I used Paper Trey Ink's " Love Songs " stamp set. If you look closely you can see that I created my own "Patterned Papers"!! (no clue why the photos aren't crisp, they were before I uploaded them) The Red background was achieved by using 2 hearts & two sets of lips. The pink paper was stamped with 3 different sized solid hearts. My scalloped circle was created using 3 stamps from the "Love Songs" set but I had too much space around the edges so I used a tiny little DOT stamp from "Polka Dot Basics" also by PTI.

I also stamped and cut out a second red heart then popped it up with a foam square

Photo of the inside of my card where I used up a few scraps that were laying around my table
CHALLENGES I USED:
Card Patterns: Sketch
Pile It On: Love is in the air
Totally Papercrafts: Add a Heart
Cupcake Inspirations: I was inspired by the colors & hearts (see photo above)
Bunny Zoe's Crafts: Love is in the air
....................Supplies I used......................
Stamps: Paper Trey Ink (love songs, polka dot basics),
Cardstock: Paper Trey Ink (white, pure poppy, sweet blush, 2008 bitty dot basics,)
Ink: Momento black, Stampin Up (real red, riding hood red)
Tools: Marvy Uchida (scalloped circle punches), Martha Stewart (looped hearts valentine, loops)
Misc: Ribbon from my stash, foam squares

This is a wonderful valentine card. I love the patterned paper you made, those lips on the red paper are so funny. I love that you used one of the older PTI sets for your card. Now get busy and figure out who you are going to give it to!

What a GREAT idea with using the single polka dot to fill in some space! I often struggle because I don't have the right size circle stamp and this could solve many problems for me! Great job on the layering, too!

Anne said...
