May 2011 PTI Blog Hop + CFC #3


It's time for another Papertrey Blog Hop.  This time it's all about flowers.  How could I not play along?  I always say that I'm not buying any more flower stamps and then Nichole and the Papertrey DT make some incredible projects with the new flower sets.  Into my cart they go:)

For this card I used my Sending You set.  I love these unique flowers.  I chose to stamp the largest blossom on a piece of adhesive cork that I cut out with one of the dies from Limitless Layers.



I added some yellow glitter to the center of the flower and a rhinestone colored with my R35 copic marker for some bling.  This is also for CAS-ual Fridays latest challenge: Bring the Bling.  I LOVE this new challenge blog!



I'll keep it short since you are hopping along.  Have a wonderful Wednesday!




All supplies from Papertrey Ink unless stated

Stamps:  Sending You, Tag-its 3
Paper:  white, black, berry sorbet, green (unknown)
Ink:  Berry Sorbet, black (memento), Glue pad (tsukineko)
Other:  adhesive cork (JoAnn's), branch die (sizzix), Picnic Plaid IP, yellow glitter (Martha Stewart), gemstone, copics
