March 2015 Papertrey Ink Blog Hop

I was working on something else and had die cut the blue and yellow patterned paper from my stash of scraps with the Rustic Wreath die. So when I saw the inspiration for the March 2015 Papertrey Ink Blog Hop and the sun is actually shining it all just came together. The banner is glued flush to the card on the left and popped up with a foam square on the right. The flowers were stamped and then painted with water.

The inspiration.


Stamps: Papertrey Ink Rustic Wreath and Petite Pots.
Dies: Papertrey Ink Rustic Wreath and Double Ended Banner.
Inks: Versafine (black), Versamark, Papertrey Ink Simply Chartreuse, Classic Kraft and Blueberry Sky.
Zing Vanilla (Opaque) Embossing Powder
Cardbase: Papertrey Ink Stamper's Select White cardstock


I'm getting ready to do the Papertrey Ink Make It Monday, which is stamping patterns which is one of my favorite things : D. I'm using a scrap leftover from a scrapbook page I did about my [grand] pig and perusing my choices for the other bits lol.

The missing die is still missing. On the plus side things are being thoroughly sorted to the ground lol. My newest addiction is making Scissor Keepers made by cutting felt with some very clever dies from Papertrey Ink.There are also dies for needlebooks and floss bobbins. They make a fabulous base for just about anything.

The snow is still here, just condensed into a more icy thing that holds the dog's weight for a few seconds, then she sinks a inch or two. Poor thing has had a really rough winter for bathroom breaks.

Beyond the clouds

A friend of mine is going through a tough time for a while now. She's really strong, but sometimes we can all use a little boost. The zip box can hold a gift card after the tab is pulled back. I'm hoping the sentiment lined up to show after the the zip is pulled lol. The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink's Movers & Shakers Sentiments set: "Beyond the Clouds, behind the rain, there are a thousand rainbows".

The inside sentiment is stamped on the Papertrey Ink Spiral Notebook die cut, the first part of the sentiment is stamped with Blueberry Sky, the lower part is colored with a rainbow assortment of Distress Markers.  The inside sentiments are from Inside & Out: Well Wishes set. The corners are rounded with my trusty Corner Chompers.
