It’s Papertrey Ink Blog Hop time! I just love the Hops, as well as all the Make It Mondays, and product releases every month, and… I just find so much wonderful creative inspiration over at Nichole’s blog, at the Design Team Members’ blogs, and everyone else who follows Papertrey. So much talent and inspiration!
The theme this month is flowers. I’m not sure I have a favorite way of doing flowers, I just love flowers in general! If I were to be specific, though, I have loved seeing felt flowers all over the creative blogosphere, and I love the Beautiful Blooms II #1 shape. I’ve wanted to try a white felt flower, so I used the Vintage Cream felt. I’ve also wanted to work with this pink and aqua color combo, so here it is – bright and bold!
I used PTI’s Vintage Cream cardstock as the base, edge inked in bronze. A layer of PTI’s Hawaiian Shores cardstock was stamped using Versamark and the Background Basics: Sheet Music stamp set, then edge inked in Cat’s Eye Cream White ink. The Hawaiian Shores layer is raised for 3D effect with dimensional adhesive.
The main focal panel is made from PTI’s Raspberry Fizz cardstock, die cut with the Mat Stack 4 die, stamped with the Polka Dot Basics II stamp set using Versamark, heat embossed with clear powder, then edge inked also in the Cream White ink. The flower ensemble was cut from Vintage Cream felt using the Beautiful Blooms II #1 die, stacked together, and attached with a pink button and some yellow embroidery floss.
At the bottom of the card, I cut a section of Raspberry Fizz cardstock using the Banner Borders die, placing it under the raised Hawaiian Shores cardstock and embellishing it with a row of mini rhinestones. I knotted a section of Offray brown saddle-stitch ribbon near the bottom of the card. I cut a Vintage Cream tag using the Tiny Tags die, stamped it with the Smile sentiment from the Tiny Tags stamp set, edge inked it in bronze, and added a mini rhinestone. Then I used a small jewelry jumpring to attach the tag to the ribbon.
