Papertrey Ink Blog Hop!

This month's blog hop challenge was to use tissue paper in a creative way. So I made a tissue paper flower using the Beautiful Blooms flower Die #1.

Remember: Click on the picture for a bigger look! :o)

Happy Birthday

Here are some bonus cards, since I haven't posted in a while.

Berry Sweet

I combined my tools and cut out a strawberry with my Cricut and then embossed it with PTI's tin types embossing folder. I popped the texture with fresh snow ink to make the strawberry's seeds. Fun!

Some non-PTI cards for your viewing pleasure...

Monkey Love

Pointer: If you're using flock on a project, as I did with the balloon, color it in first (I used a red copic marker) and then flock it, that way any "bald" spots you might have aren't so visibly noticeable.

Clear Card- Hello

Did you know you can actually emboss on clear cardstock/transparency sheets? Give it a try some time!

Joy Spinner Card

Dental floss is fun for creating spinner cards, as I've done with this Christmas card. Just cut a hole in your card (I used a nestie) and then "suspend" your object of interest inside the hole using floss sandwiched between your floaty.

Thanks for looking!
