PTI March Blog Hop! & NBUS #4


A Big 'Hi' and welcome to PTI's March Blog Hop!
Nichole gave us this inspiration photo:

Light, bright and oozing Spring!

Colors: yellow & aqua. style: country, cottagey, some 40's retro.
Wallpaper, patterns & a polka dot table cloth!


Broke into the Cuppa Love set of stamps and dies. Hadn't used them, 
and seemed fitting for an inspiration of such a warm scene!
During the release of this set, loved Heather's card pictured here:


I embossed the images onto Hawaiian Shores card stock with colors from the photo,
and used the sentiment from the set stamped in Ocean Tides Ink.
Polka dots embossed in white from PTI's Polka Dot Basics.
Play along all day on Nichole's Blog, you'll find awesome ideas and fun!
Edge scallop cut from heart banner die.


Since I haven't used this set before, adding the card to Darnell's NBUS Challenge?
Do you have stamps you haven't used yet? 
This is a great challenge to use them!
