Papertrey Ink Blog Hop - August 2013

I loved all the color combinations to choose from in the August Papertrey Blog Hop, many of which I would have never thought to put together.  I chose to use this color combo and sketch:
I did one card so far, but I really want to try combining some of the other color combinations.  Here's my take using the colors Enchanted Evening, Plum Pudding, Simply Chartreuse, Royal Velvet & Hawaiian Shores...

I used Rosie Posie  stamp sets, 1 & 2 along with Stitched Sentiments, pop dotted a few leaves and flowers, stitched around the green Graphic 45 pp, and added some bakers twine.
Thanks so much for stopping by!

Papertrey Ink Stam-a-faire Scratch 'n Smell Cards

This was really fun for me....creating a scratch and smell card during Papertrey Ink's Stam-a-faire.  I creating a cherry tag/card using a 'Fruit Fusion' stamp set, I also use background patterned paper from the Bitty Star Basics paper pad (the background tag is a large Heidi Swapp tag.  I also watercolored inside the leaves using ripe avocado ink pad.  I've also added a better image of my first card for the stamp-a-faire (with no pink background :)
I will add the 'scratch and smell' sentiment after I get the stamp set :)  And I'm already thinkinf of other scents I can do :)

Papertrey Ink's Stamp-a-faire Today

Hi there, have been trying to participate in Papertrey Ink's Stamp-a-faire that is happening today!  Good timing for me, as DH is gone bow hunting.  I chose my sketch and the color combination using royal velvet, lavender moon, ripe avocado, scarlet jewel & raspberry fizz.  I used their 'Birds & Blooms' stamp and die set along with some zing leaf embossing powder.  Love this color combo, as I would have never put them all together!  Here's my card:  (should not have photographed it with a pink background, that is that is not part of the card :)
