Papertrey Ink Blog Hop--The Total Package


One of my very favorite places to shop online is with a company called Papertrey InkTheir products are amazing and their design team provides me with so much inspiration.  While shopping a few days ago I noticed they were hosting a Blog Hop.  What is a Blog Hop you ask??? A project challenge is issued on the 15th of each month and participants have until the 25th to complete it.  They then post the completed project on their blogs and invite all  other participants to take a peek. This months challenge was to complete a card with the "Total Package"--- meaning create a card as well as the interior and the envelope using at least one product of Papertrey Ink.  I have never participated in anything like this before but I am so inspired by these products I thought I might give it a try.  I completed three cards and am so excited to share them with you. All three cards are created using the new stamp set Baby Button Bits. I adore all of the images in this set and had so much fun completing this challange.








The next card I completed using the little cupcake stamp.  I added a bit of fabric that matched this stamp so perfectly........


My third card was created using the little baby bee stamp.
Thank you to all of the "Blog Hoppers" for stopping by my blog tonight. I hope you enjoyed your stay.    I can't wait to meet all of you and see what  you have created

OH MY GOODNESS!!! I wish I had known what I was clicking on when I came to your link during the PTI Blog Hop. Because you have such FABULOUS works of art, I wasn't able to leave your blog until I looked through ALL of your previous posts. EACH and EVERY one of them. BEAUTIFUL work!!! As for the PTI Hop, I ADORE the "pea" card. The colors are so very soft and sweet and I LOVE how you used punched circles for the peas on the envie. BEAUTIFUL!

Hi Mimi! I couldn't join the blog hop last night due to the time difference, so I am catching up now. Your cards are really cute and adorable. The first one is my favorite. Thanks for the inspiration!

Mary said...

Love all the colors you used, but that pea pod on the envelope has to be the cutest thing I have seen!!

peggysue said...

Very nice cards! I think I like the cupcake the best but they all are sweet.

Janelle said...

This is bad, but I can't remember if I commented last night or not. Great job on all three cards for the blog hop. I think the cupcake one is my favorite, with the peas a close second. Well, that bee one is pretty darn cute, too. But those peas on the back of the envelope -- perfect. How to decide... Great job on your first blog hop!

Nadine said...

OMGosh soooo cute!! I love all the cards you made but my favorite was the sweet pea one. I like how you used the punched out circles in the pod for the envie! I totally want to case this now! Thank you so much for the inspiration!
