PTI Blog Hop - January 2010 - The Total Package

Hello. Welcome to the PaperTrey Ink Blog Hop. This month's challenge is "to create a card that has the "total package". Create any style card you can dream up, then take it the next step. Embellish the interior and adorn the envelope. You might even want to add a little something to the back of the card!"

I used the new Rock-a-Bye Baby template to make a card for my co-worker. By the time, I was done with all the cutting, I didn't have much juice left for the decorating! I completely forgot about the envelope, but I did remember a little something on the back from Faux Ribbon. Might have to invest in a digital cutter before long. : )

Supplies (PTI unless noted)
Stamps: Polka Dot Basics II, Mega Mixed Messages, Faux Ribbon
Ink: Bashful Blue (SU!), Spring Moss
Paper: Bashful Blue (SU!), Stamper's Select White, Spring Flowers DSP (SU!)
Accessories: Rock-a-Bye Baby Click Simple template, Spring Moss vintage buttons, DMC floss

Thanks for stopping by, and enjoy the rest of the hop!

CPS Sketch #150

Hello. I finally made time to stamp and created two cards using CPS Sketch #150. I actually used my new SU! goodies the day that the order arrived! That rarely happens.

I've had that retired SU! valentine paper sitting around for years now and have always had trouble using it - mostly because I had trouble finding pink inks that match it (none of the SU! colors seemed quite right). So I ended up just punching everything out of the paper instead of stamping. I was glad to finally find a use for a bit of the paper.

Thanks for stopping by,
