Flowery Dreams, Papertrey Ink June Blog Hop

I used the soft subtle colors of this photograph and made my card using the new Daydreamer stamp set. I love this set! The entire June 2011 Release was nothing less than spectacular, which is nothing less than I expected from Papertrey Ink. They never cease to amaze me every single month.

Love You With Botanical Silhouettes

Hi. This is going to be my blog where I share with you my Papertrey Ink stamping and craft projects. I love Papertrey Ink, their stamps that are classy and timeless, the clean and simple style of them, everything! You can do anything and everything with Papertrey Ink stamps. This blog is for me to share and for you to be inspired.

For my first project, I CASEd a card of Nichole's because I have not stamped for a while now and had to warm up. I CASEd one of Nichole's cards using the Botanical Silhouettes stamp set. There are some subtle differences in the ink color and card stock. I do not have any Papertrey Ink so I am going to have to find some suitable alternatives. I used Stampin' Up! Pure Poppy and Regal Rose for my ink and Pink Piroutte as my top layer. Everything else is pretty much the same.

A few things I want to share with you about my blog is that when I label my post, it will be filed under the stamp set. If I use more than one stamp set for a project, I will also list those too. If you're looking for examples for a particular stamp set, then it will be listed in the sidebar. We're in the process of getting that feature set up right now.

I hope that you like my blog and come back often. My style is more clean and simple than anything else but I can surprise myself, and you, sometimes! I haven't mastered or really even tried vintage yet so you will get to experience that with me too.

Here is my Love You card, inside, and the envelope. I will have more of my original designs for you soon. I think the next card I make I will use Wildflower Gardens with some other stamp sets and die-cuts from the May release. I like to combine the old with the new and Christmas sets with flowers. I do use other complimentary products but generally stick to my love of Papertrey Ink. I will soon be transferring this blog to my own domain name of PTI Inspiration. I will let you know when to change your bookmark. Wasn't last nights release dreamy?! I can't wait to get my package. I can't wait to have fun with my new PTI goodness. Enjoy!
