January PTI Blog Hop...

Hey there!!!  Stopping in with a card for this month's PTI blog hop.  I have one really old birthday related stamp set from PTI and nothing with balloons or cakes so I decided to just focus on some of the colors and the flowers in the inspiration photo for my card.  The layout is from Freshly Made Sketches so I will be posting it there, as well as the current Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge of layering.  I wasn't even sure that I would get something done for the hop as I forgot about it until yesterday afternoon.  So, this morning I quickly (as you can see from my less than perfect stamping, lol) put something together.  I used PTI's Bigger Blooms stamps and dies along with an embossing folder that I have not used in ages.   Die cut all the flowers and leaves and then stamped them using two shades of pink ink (dark and light) and a light green for the leaves.  Stamped the sentiment and die cut it with a MFT banner die and then matted it with a second banner die cut from pink cardstock.  Layered everything up on my card base and I was done!  YAY!! Another birthday card for my stash!!



Have a wonderful day and happy hopping!!

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI rustic white, SSS fog, SU! pink; Stamps:   PTI, Dies:  PTI and MFT; Inks:  Stampin Up!; Embossing folder:  Sizzix

Love your card, Rosemary--beautiful use of the sketch & the inspiration! I have that embossing folder, too, but never seem to use it. You've inspired me, as always!

Hi Rosemary,
I ended up using flowers too. The new PTI ballon set will make it to my mailbox any day. Your colors and layout are so so pretty. Love it!

Love this sweet birthday card, Rosemary. Had you not mentioned your next to perfect stamping I would never have noticed. It looks as though you meant for it to be that way. The recipient will love it I'm sure. Enjoy your day!
