Papertrey Ink March Blog Hop

Wednesday, March 25, 2015

Hi there! This is my first time participating in Papertrey Ink's blog hop, actually any blog hop.

Blog inspiration

I am excited because the inspiration photo for today's hop includes two of my favorite colors. I couldn't just make one card so I made three! 


For my first card I stamped the flowers from Brushed Blooms onto a piece of white card stock. I die cut that piece using the Sentiment Splits Curve Vertical die. Behind it I stamped a sentiment from Sentiment Splits and backed both sheets with a piece of Hawaiian Shores card stock that I cut slightly than the card base. 


For my second card, I didn't take inspiration from just the colors, but also the things in the picture. My side panel was inspired by the yellow and white polka dot table cloth. I heat embossed the polka dots with white embossing powder. A lot of the pots in the picture are yellow along with the flowers so I stamped the flower pot and flowers using Harvest Gold ink. I added a touch of aqua by adhering a smaller side panel and stamping the sentiment in Aqua Mist.


My third card didn't turn out quite like what I was going for. Originally, I had stamped the sentiment in the middle of the piece of white card stock. Once I started stamping the flowers around it, it ended up not looking right because it wasn't balanced with nothing in the left-hand corner. I pulled out some rectangle dies and cut it so the whole image was centered. I backed it with a piece of Harvest Gold card stock, rounded all of the edges, and adhered the layers. 

Thank you so much for coming by today! I hope your Wednesday is wonderful!

  22. So, Jenelle, you joined the PTI Blog Hop with a bang. All three of your cards are awesome. I especially like your first card because I love the Sentiment Splits concept. Your Brushed Blooms are beautiful on both cards. I "almost" white embossed polka dots on Harvest Gold to add to mine but didn't want to overdue it. You're making me want Brushed Blooms now even though I've got lots of floral stamps. Great job, Jenelle, and thanks for visiting my blog!
