July Blog Hop









Hi everyone and welcome! It's hard to believe it's already time for another blog hop. This month's challenge is to use text, and since I don't own any of Papertrey's text sets, I figured I would go through my patterned paper and see what I could come up with. Bingo!!

I found this awesome vintage text background paper from Paper Pizazz that's been in my stash for who's knows how long. It's amazing what kind of goodies are hiding in that stash!

So I started off first by stamping on of the flowers in Enchanted Evening ink around the edge of my card before adding the kraft layer and text designer layer. I then stamped my leaves and flowers twice on white cardstock in Memento Tuxedo Black and then colored them with Prismacolor markers, blended and then cut out.



Once I had the flowers cut out, I decided to sponge some Stampin Up! Creamy Caramel ink around the edges before adding them to the card and then pinching the edges up. The centers of the flowers are popped up on dimensionals as well. Here's a close up of the finished flowers:

Once I was done stamping the outside of my card, since I was still having so much fun with the set, I decided to stamp the inside of my card too. Now this is something I don't normally do. I then stamped the images again in Memento Tuxedo Black onto the designer paper and cut them out to adhere onto the kraft cardstock inside.



Here's the finished inside of the card:


Thank you for stopping by. I hope I've been able to provide some inspiration to you today.
