Papertrey Ink March 2012 Blog Hop

What it is: 
A day dedicated to seeking inspiration through projects utilizing Papertrey Ink products.   This event allows all of our customers who enjoy sharing inspiration & artwork with their peers do so through their personal blogs.

When it is: 
The actual Blog Hop will take place tomorrow, March 25th, beginning @ 10 am EST and run until 11:30pm EST.

The Challenge: 
We are excited to get back to our inspiration challenges for the blog hop each month.  For the month of March we wanted to focus on sunshine and the upcoming spring season.  What better way to do so than with a fresh color scheme of aqua & yellow.  Use the inspiration piece as a jumping point for your color scheme, pattern combinations, overall design or whatever else inspires your creativity.  We look forward to seeing your creations!

  1. Super take on the challenge. I used that same embossing folder only it didn't show up as well as yours did. This is a very fun card.

    1. Thanks Joyce! You are quick! I have been eye-balling that folder for sometime, so glad it came in time to use it! I did go over it lightly with Lemon Tart ink, so I wonder if that is why it showed up more....I am going to go check out yours now! You make beautiful cards!

  2. Love the letterpress technique ... and glad you posted on the forum so I could check out your cards. :) Feel free to come over to my blog and see my submissions ...

  3. So pretty, Kristi! That embossing folder really is so cool, love you inked it to match the stripes in the photo!

  4. Very pretty! Great take on the inspiration photo!

  5. Great card, love the embossed body of the card! Great take on the photo. Sorry you did not get to enter in the hop!

  6. I feel your pain...I've done that before. You did a great job too. Love the background.

  7. Great job on the stripes! I love your card!

  8. What a beautiful card! I love the soft yellow stripes!!! Sooo pretty!
