Papertrey Ink Blog Hop

                  

It's that time of the month! Time for Papertrey Ink blog hopping.  I was hoping that my order would be here on time, so I can make cards using the new release products. But, up to yesterday there's no goodies waiting for me when I came home from work. Sigh.... Almost tempted to stalk the postman, but then I'd have to take time off from work. LOL.

So, I used the PTI stuff that I already have. I made 2 cards. Start with the first one. Totally all PTI. I really like how the aqua color border turned out. I used the Background Basics: Tin Types and filled the inside with the flower from Background Basics: Petal Power. Love when I can create new look by combining stamps from different sets.


Now, the 2nd card. What I am most proud of this card, beside the fact that the bird is my own drawing, are the buttons. I didn't see any button on my stash that I want to use for this card. So, I made my own look. I put the close-up look of the buttons, so you can see it better (you might have to click on the picture to get an even bigger close-up view).

Did you notice the background on the buttons? Does the pattern look familiar? Yep, using clear glue I attached the clear buttons to the butterfly stamp (like the one I used on the 1st card), cut around following the button shape, and voila I have lovely buttons that have that pretty swirl pattern from the butterfly stamp. I really love how my custom made buttons turned out.



Well, I know you have lots of blogs to hop to, so I keep this short. Thank you so much for hopping to my blog and please let me know if you hopped here. I read and appreciate each comments.

Quick edit: I was so excited and made another card for the bloh hop. You can see it here. Have a lovely evening blog hopping ladies! I am gonna hop around myself. :) Vera
