Papertrey January Blog Hop Challenge!



It's time for the Papertrey Blog Hop!  I haven't participated in a couple of months but this challenge
was sure one I could do!  Here's the challenge:

"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. "

I didn't have to dig too far for this challenge.....as I had yet to ink up the Love Birds stamp set.  I created 2 cards for the challenge both using the same color scheme.


This card is just plain CAS but I did add in a die cut open scallop from MFT and one rounded corner.
I love how this turned out!  I wanted to add some stick pins in there but it actually was too much.  :)
This card will be linked up over at Hand Stamped Sentiments blog for their challenge this week to use HEARTS.  Go check them out!


My second card was fun to create too as I used my new Edger dies from PTI......I'm in heaven!  These are so easy to line up!  Pair that with the new Mat Stack die shape and Music IP.....these are going to be some go-to tools for sure!


Here is a better shot of the impression made with the Music IP.


This card follows the sketch this week from Card Patterns.....sketch 99.
