PTI Blog Hop
It's the 25th of the month, which means it's time for PaperTrey Ink's Blog Hop! I've been participating in the blog hop chatter, but this is the first month I've been able to actually complete the challenge!
This month's challenge was to use some of the packaging that comes with our orders when we receive them in the mail. Thankfully, I just had an order so I was able to come up with a few things! This weekend is my niece's birthday party, so I used the paper stuffing to wrap her gift. Before wrapping it up, I used Polka Dot Basics, the small and large single dots and randomly stamped in Ripe Avocado, Dark Chocolate, and Enchanted Evening. I tied it all up with Ripe Avocado twill ribbon.
The card uses two more packaging items. First is the cardboard piece that comes on the ends of the cardstock. I cut off the folded ends, flattened it and adhered it to Ocean Tides and a strip of Spring Rain. The polka dot paper is the banding that goes around the stamp sets. I punched a 1" circle out of Aqua Mist, stamped an E in Versamark and heat embossed it. It's great that the 1" punch fit exactly over the wording for the set!
