Papertrey Ink Make-It-Monday: Texture Kissing

I had a great time trying out my various background stamps with this week's Make it Monday challenge at Papertrey Ink - Texture Kissing.  You can check out the post here.  After a few attempts  with a different stamps I found a combination I really liked.  I used by PTI Bloomers flower with an older background stamp I have had for many many years.  My leaves and sentiment are from the PTI Daydreamer stamp set.

I created a second card that was just a slight variation of this design because I wanted to experiment with the color blue.
For this card I used the same PTI Bloomers stamp but got out my PTI Embellished Elegance stamp set to create the leaves.  The sentiment is  from the PTI Scripted stamp set which is quickly becoming one of my favorites. The frame for both cards is the PTI Shaker Shapes: Circle die.

Papertrey July Blog Hop Challenge

This month's blog hop challenge allowed us to explore all our butterfly products.  I wanted to do something similar to the vintage look in the challenge photo.  What a lovely display of butterflies.

I decided to stick with pink and a neutral color, so kraft paper entered my project.
I stamped the background leaves with PTI Kraft ink using the large leaves from the PTI Meadow Greens stamp set, then added Raspberry Fizz and black dots along with dew drops I created with Glossy Accents.  The Butterfly was cut using from white card stock then I blended on PTI Raspberry Fizz ink.  The small leaves I stamped with the same color using the smallest leaf stamp in my PTI Garden Gild Mini Kit.    The sentiment if from the PTI Meadow Greens stamp set.

Creating your own custom borders

This week's Make-it-Monday at Papertrey Ink had us making our own custom borders with stamped images.  I decided on using my sketched shapes stamp set and kept the border simple.  I used some greens, blues and a bit of yellow to set the tone.  The dots I added just for fun. I always pull these dots stamps out of the Life is Beautiful stamp set when I get the urge to add dots to a card.  They probably get used as much (or more) than the butterflies in that set.

Products Used:
