PTI Blog Hop!!


It's Hoppin' time!! This is the first time I am officially hoppin' and I'm looking forward to checking out what everyone has created this month! Creating a background was the challenge this month, so quite quickly I reached for one of my favorite sets, Guide Lines. I think I love it so much because of how unique it is! Combining the Guide Lines grid with a fun little image from Boxes, Bags & Tags I stamped up a tone on tone background with Versamark on the New Leaf cardstock that arrived on my doorstep from PTI just a few days ago. I couldn't make up my mind which ribbon color I preferred and then I realized, I didn't need to choose! I could use both by layering them...funny how the simplest things can just tickle you so! :>



Supplies:
Cardstock: Kraft, New Leaf, Raspberry Fizz - PTI
Stamps: Guide Lines, Boxes, Bags & Tags - PTI; One of a Kind - SU!
Ink: Versamark; Chocolate Chip - SU!
Ribbon: Raspberry Fizz grosgrain, New Leaf Satin - PTI
Bling: Bling It On - Lisa Bearnson
Punch -
Spiral - SU!
