Hello Dot Spot -Papertrey Ink

Pti hello

While blog hopping during the Papertrey Ink blog hop a few days ago, I fell in love with this card that Diane made. Melissa Phillips weekly photo challenge had an amazing photo with fun colors. I was so excited to give it a try. I decided to use my new Dot Spot stamps set, (I'm loving) along with the fillable frames set. I didn't buy the die, but figured out I could use my old Stampin Up ticket punch to trim the corners, it works perfect!! Once I have the rectangle the correct size, I just snipped the corners. I also trimmed the bottom corners of the card, might have gotten carried away there!

Lavendar Moon, Plum Pudding from PTI and Versamagic Persimmon chalk ink for the orange color. I also used a quickie glue pen to add a thin line of xtra fine DeNami glitter to accent the inside of the frame. PTI Plum satin ribbon.

Embellish Borders Color Challenge

I photographed this card, and then realized I didn't like the shadows. I lost the card in my house somewhere.... if I find it I will try to take a better photo.

Embellish Magazine Color Challenge with border punches this week look so fun. The colors are yellow, green, pink & peach. I thought the colors were perfect for a springy bunch of flowers.

I picked up these fabulous border & corner punches by Martha Stewart while I visited Stampers Corner on Saturday. They make such a pretty delicate border, LOVE it! I used the punch on some pretty pink PTI dot paper. This Zinnia stamp by Karen Lockhart fit perfectly in the square. Added some border stamping on the bottom of the card, Lemon PTI. Finished the card off by adding some PTI grosgrain ribbon. Colored in with my copics.

Papertrey Ink - February Blog Hop

Papertrey Ink February Blog Hop.... So excited to participate this month, since I forgot last month!
Bloghoplogo The challenge this month was to find inspiration from one of the PTI designers.... easy task! I am always referring back to Dawn's blog for her great color combo's and striking layouts. I somehow managed to "copy" this card more than just inspired. I did use different inks, and a different stamp set. I also added the polka dots next to the saying at the bottom, otherwise it is just like Dawn's. Didn't want to mess up her awesome card! I have tried for 1/2 hour to add a picture of Dawn's card, but I can't figure it out, technical problems. SO Sorry! This is my 1st time using the new PTI Dot Spot set, loving it so far. I added the Thank You saying from Giga Guide Lines, and the same Denami polka dot border I used yesterday. DeNami & PTI buttons. PTI twine, raspberry fizz, berry sorbet, chamomile & lavender moon ink. Spellbinders dies made it super fast & easy... cut and then stamp, love those clear stamps!!!
