PTI Blog Hop



Goodness I hope this works.  Tonight is my very first blog hop so I hope I did this right.  We're suppose to use tissue paper in our creation which I recycled from a department store and a birthday gift.  All other supplies I'll list below.  So here's my blog hop card:

Supplies:


Stamps:  PTI:  Year in Flowers - Violets, Autumn Abundance
Paper:  Except for tissue, all PTI:  Terracotta Tile, Enchanted Evening and Spring Moss
Inks:  PTI:  Hawaiian Shores, Enchanted Evening, New Leaf
Dies:  Beautiful Blossoms II No. 1
Brad:  Vanilla brad, company?

I used tissue paper in my blossom accent as well as the striped layer.  I don't know if you can make out the detail - due to my sad, sad attempt at photography - but I pleated the striped tissue horizontally and I think its my favourite part of the card.  I didn't get the whole tissue paper flower thing until I tried it and I LOVE it.  So simple, so fast, so gratifying and an excellent way to use all my new PTI flower dies...got to love that the most.

Well, thanks for stopping by.  I'm off to check out everyone else's blogs and get inspired.

  7. happy first hop! Glad you could come play. And it is sometimes the camera, not the photographer . . . that's my story and I'm sticking to it. Nice job making the flower so dark, very striking against the background.

  15. Your card is very pretty. You should make the photo larger because the pleats are very nicely done. I could see them when I enlarged the photo. Your flower is so beautiful in that color too!

  16. Hey! LOVE THE TISSUE PAPER FAN FOLD! OMG...did it drive you crazy folding it like that? I've GOT to try a flower. How'd you color the flower? Have a good week! I made 12 baptism cards. Why? because I needed ONE for my neice, and decided I needed to have some "instock" and I didn't want to waste a piece of precious PTI paper!
