A Valentine Challenge

I have a few challenges that came up today. One for PTI's anniversary countdown. They're partnering with CPS for their weekly challenge and offering up THREE of the new stamp sets coming out on the 15th. It was also time for our 2nd Papertrey Pals Pallenge! This one was hosted by Liz. We were challenged to make a Valentine and use a bit of stitching on it.


I was so glad she challenged us with that because I've been needing to bust my sewing machine out again! I'm thrilled with the way my stitching came out. I think I'm finally getting the hang of it!

This card uses Rustic Cream as the base and I have Pure Poppy hearts which I did a little distressing to and then sewed on a Raspberry Fizz button. I stamped hearts in Pure Poppy and the words in Rasberry Fizz. The final size of this card is 4x4.





Supplies (all PTI unless noted):
Paper - Rustic Cream, Pure Poppy, Kraft, Raspberry Fizz
Ink - Pure Poppy, Raspberry Fizz
Stamps - Unknown Valentine
Other - Raspberry Fizz Vintage Button, sewing machine, cricut
