Papertrey May Blog Hop



Hello!!!!
Happy Blog Hop Day!
Thank you so much for coming over to see my creation this month for PTI Blog Hop. Be sure to check out every one's entry as there is a TON of inspiration. This month we were to use yellow. Anything goes, a little or a lot. I had two ideas in mind so I went with both. The first card I used Lemon Tart and just the tiniest bit of Summer Sunrise. I also used the new Background Basics Text as the patterned paper. I stamped it with Summer Sunrise. I had tried to stamp with Lemon Tart but it faded into the paper so you really couldn't see it. The awesome flourish is the new Fancy Flourishes that I stamped and heat embossed with clear ep. I LOVE that look. Added some Lemon Tart grosgrain ribbon and a Vintage button threaded with Cream jute. I raised the entire panel on pop dots. THEN, for the second card I brought out the new Star Prints. I LOVE that set as I totally heart stars. This time I only used just a little Lemon Tart but again paired it with Summer Sunrise AND Aqua Mist. for the Summer Sunrise pattern paper I stamped it with lots of Happy Birthday sentiments from the PTI Birthday Basics. I had a little piece of the Aqua Mist made with Polka Dot Basics and clear embossing powder, so I added it for a little extra sumpin sumpin. The bottom panel was stamped with the little star in Star Prints. So that is it, thanks so much for looking have fun hoping!!!
Cheers!
