PTI July Blog Hop


It's Blog Hop time at PapertreyInk!
Welcome and sit back for a bit while I show you the 4 cards I created.

1st the Challenge photo:


I saw this wonderful inspiration, and thought, sewing, summer, buttons, bouquets,
sweet artisan handwork.


Rather went my own way with the first card. 
Can you tell it's a beach theme?
Waited so long for Betsy's Shakers and Sprinkles, but let me tell you, it was worth the wait!
The dies are incredible and the vials of sequins and rainstones are a treasure!
Not going to detail the supplies, but it's all Papertrey, except the crushed shells and sand confetti, and the gold embroidery thread on the shell.

Card 2:


More in line with the inspiration photo, this card uses some of my favorite dies,
and the linen embossing folder.


Don't you love that 'happy' die and stamp from Embellished Elegance?
I keep looking for ways to use it!

On to card 3:

There are 9 die cuts in this card (just sayin')


What's better than red, pink and aqua together!
A little 'hand' stitching with a white gel pen.

And finally....


Artful Notions does CAS, (restraint is not what I'm normally know for!)
But I love what Maile's been doing with slants and cuts!


All PTI card stocks and Inks and stamps and dies too. 
If you want to know more about any of the cards above, I love to chat!
Otherwise, what are you still doing here?
Hop along and have fun!
