pti september blog hop...

Hello!!  Can't believe September is almost over and that it is time for PTI's monthly blog hop.  This month Nichole provided a clean and simple photo as inspiration for our projects.   When I saw the photo I knew immediately that I was going to use my Rustic Wreath stamps and the matching die.  I was finally able to get Rustic Wreath earlier this year.  It was so popular that every time I went to purchase it I couldn't because it was sold out!!  I started out by die cutting the wreath from kraft and green cardstock.  I then stamped the wreaths with the matching wreath stamp.  Once that was done I matched them up with my light grey cardstock to see which I liked better.  In the end I decided to go with the green wreath.  I used a tiny kraft tag that was die cut using the Tiny Tags die, masked off the Joyeux in the Joyeux Noel sentiment, inked up the noel with the same espresso ink I used to stamp the wreath and then stamped it on the tag.  The wreath was adhered to my light grey cardstock panel and then I added the tag and a simple bow tied from off white hemp twine.   I added a bit of sparkle with some Diamond Stickles.  Clean and simple and I absolutely love it!!




Hope you have a wonderful day... happy hopping!!


Supplies:  Cardstock:  SSS fog, SU! Old Olive, PTI kraft, white; Stamps:  PTI Rustic Wreath; Dies:  PTI Rustic Wreath, AJVD Stitched Dot Rectangles; Inks:  SU! Early Espress; Diamond Stickles; Hemp twine

Gorgeous card that perfectly represents the inspiration pic! I hope that Spruce & Sprigs set come back in stock for you soon - I had to wait about 8 months until the dies were back in stock at a time when I was able to buy them - it's a game of patience :)
