PTI Blog Hop

I am super duper excited to join PaperTrey Ink blog hop for this month. I am pretty new to PTI stamps, but I can tell you that I LOVED PTI stamps! After waiting for a long time (hey a week wait is long when you're waiting for new stamps, especially if you've been drooling for it during the sneak peak), my 2nd order from PTI arrived  yesterday. I loved it that they took the time to wrap each set in tissue paper. It's like unwrapping a present. Even their small labels that wrapped around the set makes me happy. :)

This month blog we're supposed to make cards that inspired by PTI design team. I love Maile Belles style. Her cards have that clean look that just simply gorgeous. I made this card, inspired by her technique here (the 2nd card). The french knot on the flowers from Asian Fusion set really make the card unique. I usually use my needle to unplug my Diamond Glaze, LOL, now I am glad that I actually get to put my needle to other use.



Here's the close up of the flowers with the french knot.



I am soo in love with my PTI stamps that I actually made 3 cards for the blog hop. I love the simplicity of Dawn's card here. Her row of flowers inspired me to make this row of butterflies on my card.



I like browsing for inspirations and see what I can come up with. I know I could use the bigger butterfly to make it look more similar to Dawn's card, but I love this tiny butterfly. It just look so gentle and breezy.

Hope you enjoy the cards. Thank you so much for stopping by and please leave comments if you stop by here. Would love to know what you think. Have a super duper great evening, Vera.
