This month's PTI Blog Hop is to simply be inspired by the following photo:
Well, I had to play with the new stamp set that came with my Stamp-a-Faire bag! It's such a fun floral set to play with, you can really get a lot of different looks depending on the stamps & color combos you use. For this card, I chose to stick to two colors for stamping: Harvest Gold & New Leaf.
I'm really loving this card! It was super fun & I love all the elements inspired by the photo. I used 2 different ribbons inspired by the fabric element, one for the New Leaf border and the bitty dot to roll for a handmade flower. I was also inspired by the ruffles, so I created that effect by layering the two different bottom edges and curling the ends up a bit so the look like layers of ruffle.
To finish off the flower, I broke two sewing pins and stuck them through the button holes into the foam dot underneath. I stamped the sentiment & placed the flower on the pointed Half & Half die that an extremely sweet fellow PTI fan offered to me when she got dies in her SAF bag & already had them- THANK YOU! As you can see, I couldn't wait to use it! :)
Thanks for stoppin everyone & have fun hoppin!
