Papertrey Blog Hop


Hi peeps, it's my favorite time of the month again! Time for Papertrey blog hop. Requirement for today blog hop is to use tissue paper. Honestly, I was struggling a bit at first. I saw so many sample of flower made of tissue paper and I thought I give it a try.

Didn't work out. I lost my patience... LOL. After several attempt, I decided to try different thing. First, I found out that stamping on tissue paper can give you soft look result. And by accident, I also found out that I love the look, when I layered the tissue paper 3 times. If only 1 layer, it will show whatever other colors you have on the background. 2 layers, still didn't quite give me the look I like. So, 3 layers it is. :) Here's the first card, all I did was die-cutting the flower & the leave, then stamped the Delightful Dahlia set.


I also loved the way my border came out. My hand were shaking a bit, but all in all it lined up pretty good. :) For the 2nd card, I gave folding tissue paper another try, but this time just as border. Remind me of pleated skirt somehow. Anyhoo, here's the card:



I am looking forward to seeing everybody's creation tonight. I know I am going to be overload with inspirations and for that I thank you all. And a big thank you for everybody that stopping by my blog. Please kindly leave a comment as your comments means a lot to me and I apreciate each and every single one of them. I'm gonna get comfy and start hopping! :) Hugs, Vera.
