Papertrey Ink March 2015 Blog Hop

The Blog Hop for this month, over at Papertrey Ink, has a Spring time feel! Look at the lovely inspiration that Nichole gave us ...


... so fresh and pretty; gorgeous yellow and blues. I'm still in Florida and it's getting hotter and hotter and I'm feeling less and less like making cards, but I managed to do one ...


Horrid photo, kind of blasted on the left hand side, that's life. I've seen lots of Bitty Bouquets along the Hop this morning, and that's what I reached for also. I always try to use my new stuff pretty soon after I get it, and aside from playing around with Bitty Bouquets, and stamping lots and lots of them, I hadn't used them on a card yet. I also wanted to stamp that pretty frame from my newly acquired (thanks, Chris!) Stamp-a-faire 1940s set. And you can see I'm still not over woodgrain - here I used a some printed vellum from Webster's Pages.

Supplies:

Cardstock - PTI Stamper's Select White, Vintage Cream
Stamps - PTI Bitty Bouquets, SAF 2014 1940s
Ink - PTI Harvest Gold, Lemon Tart, Summer Sunrise, Tropical Teal, Simply Chartreuse; Fresh Ink Island, Blue Sage
Dies - PTI Bitty Bouquets, Wonderful Words: Thank You; Lifestyle Crafts Nesting Squares
Patterned Paper - Webster's Pages printed vellum; Lawn Fawn Let's Polka
