Tempting Hearts Total package... January PTI Blog Hop 84

Mona Pendleton | Monday, January 25, 2010 @ 4:45 PM | , , ,

Hi Everyone! I can't believe it's time again for another PTI Blog Hop! This month Nichole challenged us to create a card that has the "total package". We were encouraged to create any style card we could dream up, then take it to the next step. Embellish the interior & adorn the envelope. Maybe even adding a little something to the back of the card!



Here is my Tempting Hearts Total package:When I think of "Total package", I think of including some sort of gift packaging. What better way to present a heartfelt gift?!

Here is my Tempting Hearts card:

I was at CHA this past weekend & picked up this awesome Unity stamp set that included this Sweet Bingo like card! One of the many goodies I snagged!

I stamped the floral paper with one of the pretty PTI floral images from the PTI Beautiful Blooms set with SU Tempting Turquoise ink then followed with the outline image using Memento Tuxedo Black to help make those flowers "pop" off the paper. I layered this stamped paper with MTME © Flowers & Flutters digi paper.


I inked up the smaller pretty floral image from the PTI Beautiful Blooms set with SU Tempting Turquoise & stamped the front left corner of the envelope then followed with the floral outline & added a few SU heart images using SU Real Red ink. Really completes the envelope :)

On the inside, I inked up the Stampabilities Funky Valentine's Day stamp with Versamark then applied white embossing powder & heat set. I love how a white embossed image looks on anything :) I added a little heart embellishment cut from Spellbinders Scalloped Hearts & Hearts dies, finished it off with a button.

I inked up the "with love" SU image from the Yummy set with Versamark & embossed that with white embossing powder as well.

My entire Tempting Hearts Total package was inspired by this week's creativity challenge #13 at The Play Date Cafe featuring these "bold & beautiful" colors. Be sure to stop by The Play Date Cafe & see all the amazing photos the DT has offered up for you to view!

I cut out this MTME © Shutt-erfly template using my Cricut Expressions machine! How simple is that? I stitched on 4 panels, each containing a layer of PTI Pure Poppy & MTME © Flowers & Flutters digi paper. I love how that PTI Pure Poppy cs really makes the MTME © black & white polka dots jump right off the ©Shutt-erfly box! I made a tag with the "Sweet" bingo like card stamped image. If you look closely, that "Sweet" bingo card is full of Sweet sayings!!!!

That's it for today. Thanks for hopping by! Be Sweet!

Stampin' Pam said...

Oh my gosh Mona - this is SO YOU and SO wonderful. I love the black and red with the unexpected turquoise. You just really, really put together the total package. From the fabulous shutterfly box with the great matching tag and then the beautiful and fun card. I love how you showcased the way to dress up an envie - it does really complete the package and then the embossing on the inside of the card is a lovely touch, too. So many textures going on adds interest for sure. I like how you combined elements from several companies to pull together this masterpiece set - let's see this one has my address on it right!? LOL

TRULY an eye-catching, prize-winning combo. Sorry I just could not fit in one more challenge right now so I had to skip blog hop this month.
