Papertrey Ink Blog Hop - January '19

tracey_PTIhop_cover_Jan19


Happy Friday!

I have a card for the January Papertrey Ink Blog Hop! I have not participated in the blog hop for a very long time. I was organizing my studio over the holidays and while going through some of my stamps I realized that I had so many Papertrey stamps sets that I bought because I adored them--so no better time to use them!





I took my inspiration from the colours in the photo and used one of my favourite sets ever--Cutting Garden.  I stamped some details from Fancy Flourishes in my background and a sentiment from Grateful Greetings. The card was finished off with some clear sequins filled with silver Stickles and a generous coating of the ever so elusive clear 'Wink of Stella'. I tried to capture it in my photos but I think it is going to be the recipient that gets to enjoy it!

A closer look at the layering...

I think it's safe to say that everyone is having a chilly day. We woke to a wild snowstorm here this morning and this afternoon the sky is blue and the sun is shining but the winds are strong and it is only -21 C with the wind chill, that is -6 F. Staying in seems like a good idea!

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend!

Just a beautiful card Tracey! Love those big blossoms in those lovely soft colours. It is bone chilling cold here where I live in eastern Ontario as well so I agree completely about staying in and being cozy. Cheers.
