PTI September Blog Hop...

{for my Coffee Lovers Blog Hop card, please scroll down or click here}

Hey friends!!!   Popping in with my project for this month's PTI blog hop.  Nichole gave us a lovely inspiration photo of a door decorated for fall.  I had recently purchased the PTI Twig Wreath stamp set and matching dies so it was a no brainer that I would use those for my project.  I had planned on creating a set of tags using the black tags that came in the Make It Market Mini Kit Still Life Summer, but when my Big Shot broke in the middle of die cutting all the little pieces for the wreath I had to change my plans.  I ended up making a "tag-card".   I inked up the edges of the tag with white ink and then smeared it with my finger.   I added some partial embossing using a woodgrain embossing folder and then added a bit more white ink.  The wreath was adhered along with all the little bits as you see.  I created a little sentiment banner and adhered it.   A second tag was scored along the top and adhered to the front tag to create my "tag-card".  Finished things off with some rustic twine tied in a bow.  Despite my original plans being derailed I'm pretty pleased with how my little tag-card turned out!  Posting this to the current Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge to use a stamp and the current AAA Cards challenge:  fall colors.
 
Thanks for stopping by today... and happy hopping!!

Supplies:  black cardstock tags; PTI kraft cardstock; Stamps and dies:  PTI Twig Wreath; Inks:  Stampin Up! and Memento; twine
