Papertrey January Blog Hop Challenge

Happy Tuesday all!  So excited today!  Actually came home from work a little early to make sure I had my projects photographed and blog post ready to go to play along with Papertrey Ink and their January Blog Hop!

I'm new to PaperTrey Ink stamps...first purchase was about 4 months ago...and I cannot get enough! This blog hop's challenge was to use a Papertrey stamp set that had yet to see ink or to use one that had been collecting dust for a bit.  Well this was easy for me, as I just last week received my latest order of Papertrey stamps!  So I was able to get two cards together last night using 2 of my new sets.

First card from the Year of Flowers: Lily of the Valley set (love love love love the Year of Flowers sets...I have 7 of the 12 sets and will have to complete the collection eventually!):


Supplies: Image and Sentiment - PTI; Ink - Memento Tuxedo Black, Copic (BV000, BV00, BV01, YG93, YG95, YG97); Cardstock - PTI Stamper's Select White, Kraft; Bazzil; Ribbon - unknown; Pearls - Queen&Co

Second card from the Friendship Jar set (BTW...eyeballed this set for a few months then finally broke down and had to buy it!  it's so much fun to play with!):


Supplies: Stamps - PTI; Ink - Memento Tuxedo Black, CTMH - Cranberry, Copic (C00, C01, C03, C05, C07); Stampendous Clear Embossing Powder; Cardstock - PTI Kraft; Paper - CTMH; Ribbon - unknown

Now off to hop along the blog trail and check out some other Papertrey Ink goodies!

  5. Oh so, so, so pretty! I love the simplicity of the first card - your colouring is beautiful and the sheer ribbon and understated accents you've chosen for it are fabulous! The second card looks like something wonderfully vintage and homemade - love the cherries and gingham together, it feels so authentic and comforting!

  10. I love the "homey" feel of the second card, and it looks great as a round card. The first card? TOTALLY delicious! Lily of the Valley is my favorite of the YOF sets, and you've colored it so beautifully- nicely done!
