Papertrey Ink Blog Hop July 2016

It has been a long while since I've blogged much. Grief truly zapped my creativity for the past year. This weekend was Papertrey Ink Stamp A Faire, and both the "Masters" videos and those made by the PTI design team went far in strengthening my desire to get out of my head and make art again!

This card is a fast one I whipped up for the Blog Hop today. Not fancy, but my take on the challenge image:

I used Cover Plate: Triangles to impress my card base, reflecting the triangles in the photo wall paper. Aqua Mist, Melon Berry and Soft Stone designer papers and a touch of gold are used to reflect some of the colors in the photo.  One Big Happy stamp and die used for the sentiment.

(Sorry for the inside photo - it is too bright to photograph outdoors today, even in the Pacific Northwest! :)

Thanks for stopping by!

SAF 2016 - The Masters: Share your Masterpiece

I made this card a few years ago for my grand daughter's birthday. Used PTI stamps, scallop die, card stock and ink. I was thrilled with how it turned out!  I occasionally think about this card and how proud I was at the time.
