June PTI Blog Hop 2

I made my first card and had so much fun that I decided to try another! I really like the colors in this inspiration photo!
I pulled out my zig-zag background and stamped it with Lemon Tart and Aqua Mist. First, I cut a tag out of aqua cardstock and stamped the flowers with the green ink. I die cut the tag again out of white and then die cut it again with the little circles along the bottom. I also used a gel pen to add faux stitching around the tag. I die cut the zig zag and stamped the sentiment from Mega Mixed Messages and popped it up with foam tape. It was finished when I tied the tag around the sentiment with twine.

 I think it is cute and the recipient can untie the tag and use it on a package or something. Well, I definately must go now and get some work done around the house! Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

PTI June Blog Hop

This is the June Blog Hop:

This months inspiration is a fun take on florals, ruffles & pleats. Leaves me envisioning New Leaf ink stamped onto Aqua Mist cardstock with perhaps some pops of Harvest Gold or Lemon Tart die-cuts! Have fun perhaps trying your hand at pleats or ruffles using your favorite ribbons. This photo sparks all kinds of amazing summery ideas! We look forward to seeing your creations!
I haven't created anything for the Blog Hop in a long time! I always hope to get my stamps that I ordered on the 15th but alas they haven't come yet. This month I decided to use sets that I already have on hand! I took inspiration from the textured pillow in the background and scored my Aqua Mist cardstock with my Martha Stewart score board. I die cut the butterfly and stamped it with the aqua ink. Then I stamped over it with a flower from the Pretty Peonies set with New Leaf. The sentiment is also from the Beautiful Butterflies set.
I am looking forward to seeing all the inspiration from all the other blogs too! Have a great day!
