Papertrey January Blog Hop Challenge

Today is the day for the Papertrey Ink January Blog Hop.  I am so excited as this is my first time participating!  The challenge this month was to either use a Papertrey stamp set that has yet to see ink or one that might be collecting a little dust.  I chose to implement both into my submissions.  Heart Prints was the first PTI stamp set that I ever purchased so I used that to create a clear embossed background on my card and then I chose a new set, Love Birds, along with its co-ordinating die for my focal point.



All Supplies from PaperTrey Ink unless otherwise noted:

Cardstock:  Dark Chocolat, Vintage Cream, Berry Sorbet
Stamps:  Heart Prints, Love Bird
Ink:  Dark Chocolat, Berry Sorbet
Other:  Double Ended Banner die, Love Birds Die, clear embossing powder

This is cute! Like the idea to use the hearts as a BG and haven't tried the fancy folded sentiment yet but looks great!
