Papertrey Ink - Blog Hop


I love the Papertrey Ink stamps! And I'd forgotten that they were having a Blog Hop (details here) this evening so this was my 30 minute throw together card.... after 2 cards trashed!

The challenge this month was use a transparency. I used Hambly Studio's grid transparency as my card base and sewed on some Heidi Swapp mini star transparencies that had each been stamped with different images from the PTI set "Butterfly Kisses".



I cut my moon shape using my circle Spellbinder's Nestabilities and then embossed it using my Cuttle bug embossing folder.

I embossed the background white paper with my scalloped sqaure Nestabilities and then before removing the die, I inked it with a soft blue Colorbox chalk ink for a nice soft sky feel.

I stamped the sentiment from "Out on a Limb" set using my Ranger Archival ink.

I inked my stars with Staz-On and sewed them with orange floss for an added touch of colour.

I added a ribbon bow and it was complete!


Thanks for visiting my blog this evening! Have fun blog hopping!
