April PTI Blog Hop

Hey there!  (If you want to see my AJVD post, please click here.)  Today is the 25th of the month and that means it is time for the PTI blog hop.  The photo boasts a stack of delicate tea cups and the first thing I thought of when I saw it was Pride and Prejudice which then led me to think of PTI's Simply Jane stamp set.  I combined that set with the Sweet Life stamp set to create my card.   I pulled colors from the tea cups (aqua, pink, dark pink, yellow, green) and stamped various die cuts from Simply Jane and Sweet Life using those colors.  I spotted some gold on the rims of the tea cups and so I stamped the frame from Simply Jane using Delicata Golden Glitz ink.   Once I had all my pieces completed it was time to arrange everything on a panel of white cardstock that I had die cut with an AJVD rectangle die and stamped with the sentiment from Simply Jane using VersaFine CLAIR ink in Morning Mist.  After everything was adhered I added some Pretty Pink Posh jewels in Buttercream and Aquamarine for a bit of sparkle.   Adding this to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge of anything goes.



Hope you have a wonderful day and happy hopping!

Supplies:  Cardstock:  Stampin Up white, PTI Aqua Mist; Stamps:  PaperTrey Ink; Dies:  PaperTrey Ink and A Jillian Vance Design; Inks:  Stampin Up!, VersaFine CLAIR, Catherine Pooler; Jewels:  Pretty Pink Posh

Your interpretation of the inspiration image is lovely! It's always a pleasure to see the Jane Austen set used, and your arrangement with the roses, the cameo, and the gold scroll frame feels true to the inspiration and yet so varied—it's one of my favorites from the blog hop.

Rosemary, I just saw this card in the PTI newsletter and needed to check it out on your blog. I love that you used some older sets, showing why they are classics. Your card is so elegant and a fabulously creative interpretation of the teacup painting. I'm so glad that it was highlighted in the newsletter or I would have missed a special card.
