PTI January Blog Hop Challenge 107

Mona Pendleton | Tuesday, January 25, 2011 @ 8:00 AM | , ,

Hi there! Here today to share a card I made for the PTI January Blog Hop Challenge. It has been months since I participated and I am so happy I had a chance to play this month! Nichole is challenging us all to use a Papertrey stamp set that either has not seen ink or one that may be collecting dust. (We all know how that goes!)
I blew the dust off Spiral Bouquet and got busy. I was inspired by a card created by Betsy Veldman (click HERE to see Betsy's gorgeous sample!). I loved the way Betsy shared how she stamped the flower die cut with the images from Spiral Bouquet giving a plain flower a whole new look! Thanks Betsy for sharing your "secrets" with all of us :)
The pretty flower shown above was cut/embossed using two of the S5-050 Rose Creations die templates and layered upon a lil' doily cut/embossed using a S5-041 Floral Doily Motifs die template.

Thanks for looking! Can't wait to see all the inspiration along the hop :)

Supplies Used:
Stamps: Papertrey Ink Spiral Bouquet
Die Templates & Machine: Spellbinders™ Nestabilities®  S5-041 Floral Doily MotifsS5-050 Rose Creations, GC-001 Grand Calibur
Patterned Paper: My Mind's Eye Lost & Found, Madison Avenue Collection/Cherish  
Paper: PTI
Ink: PTI Raspberry Fizz

Betsy has brilliant ideas to inspire and so do you, Mona. I think the inked edges add even more interest to the flowers. I have to remember to do that before I adhere the paper.
