PTI Blog Hop Challenge
"With the new year comes a clean slate along with many resolutions. This month's blog hop challenge involves you challenging yourself to use a Papertrey stamp set that has yet to see ink or even one that might be collecting a little dust! Go through your stash and see what little used treasure it might hold."
For this challenge, Robin and I went through our stamp sets to see which sets have never been inked. I was not surprised when we found that all of our PTI sets have been stamped, at least once. We love our PTI sets and we use them a lot! When they come in the mail we are usually so excited that we put them together almost immediately and use them very soon after to make new, and different cards.
Yet, for this challenge, I decided to use a stamp that has never seen ink from a set that we use a lot. Robin uses the Round and Round anniversary set very often. We love stamping the round images and adding rhinestones to embellish them. Yet, there was a large flourish in the stamp set that had never been inked. I never really knew what to do with this stamp; I always looked at it when perusing the set, but never tried it. Well, for this challenge I decided to ink it up! I really like how this card came together. I stamped the new image in pink onto a die cut Mat Stack 1. I then added the butterfly stamp from the same anniversary set. I also cut out white strips and stamped them with the border stamp from the coordinating Mat Stack 1 stamp set. I added a sweet sentiment from the Round and Round anniversary set and placed three small pearls underneath it. I placed all of this on a matching purple background. Overall, I am quite happy with how the card looks. I hope to use this fun flourish stamp that coordinates with all of the circles in the Round and Round anniversary set more often!
Thanks for stopping by!
