PTI April Blog Hop


It's time for the Papertrey Ink April Blog Hop. The challenge issued this month was to use tissue paper on our creation. I've never done that before so stuck with a simple tissue paper flower. I used my BB2 die to cut multiple layers of tissue paper that had been stamped with Polka Dot Basics2.


Thanks to Kimberly for letting me borrow her Labels Twelve Spellbinders die. I like how that part turned out. I simply popped up the Summer Sunrise with pop-dots.

The sentiment is inside. I intended for it to be below the cutout but goofed up (darn double images) so, I concealed my boo-boo with a bow and tied on a dragonfly charm. You can see a closer up image of the polka dots and the charm here.

Stamps: Polka Dot Basics 2, Round & Round for inside sentiment (both PTI)
Ink: Van Dyke Brown (Nick Bantok), Lemon Tart (PTI) Vintage Linen (Ranger), Vintage Tea Duo (PTI)
Paper: Rustic White and Summer Sunrise (PTI)
Other: brown polka dot ribbon (Hobby Lobby), charm and button (unknown), twine (PTI), Beautiful Blooms 2 die (PTI), Labels Twelve (Spellbinders)

Enjoy the rest of your Hop!

Your flower is so puffy and full. It looks like real silk! Beautiful. Simple. Elegant.

Katie {choc0holic} said...

Oh I just love this! I definitely need to try popping up a matted layer around a focal point!

Linda said...

Beautiful! Fabulous way to showcase the flower. And I was already to say how I liked your ribbon treatment. I think some of our best work comes from covering goof-ups. I still like your ribbon treatment!
