Papertrey Ink Blog Hop!


Good Morning! It's time again for PTI'S blog hop! I fell in love with this color combination and wound up making two cards. I'm not a big fan of using  black on my cards but love using navy as an alternate color. Look at all those shades of pink, yummy!

For my cards today I used The sweet Life stamp set, the Background Basis (Retro) stamp set . I placed vellum over the top to soften the stripes.



 
Have a wonderful day!! Char

MaryH said...

So pretty...love these roses. I have this PTI set, keep waiting on the die to get back in stock - if it ever does. Like the way you've used the roses on the pretty stripes. Great idea to soften with the vellum. Very effective. (Glad you enjoyed the Brusho videos. Mine looked nothing like hers either, but it was fun trying! Don't give up. Hope things are going ok for you.) TFS & Hugs

Hello Char :) Stunning work as usual. To answer your question on Dragonfly stamps from my Tim April tag: I got that set from UK, by winning a challenge, and the bag it came in has this website: www.thestampman.co.uk
Aspects of Design The Kay Carley Collection. However, if you search for it, it does not come back with any search result :(

Leigh Penner said...

Oh, these are both so gorgeous!

Jinny Newlin said...

Swoon! These are stunning, Char! Love those floral images, and the incorporation of the navy elements are stunning, not to mention the texture with the twine and vellum and angles and... I just love it all! Yum!
