PTI Dec Blog Hop


Nothin' but scraps for this challenge!  Details can be found here.   I really enjoy reusing and recycling "trash" in my creativity so this was a really fun challenge for me.  Especially since I'd gotten some awesome tissue paper in several gifts.  And as usual, when I'm on a roll I can't stop with just one.  Here is a trio of cards created with nothin' but scraps from Christmas day and my desktop.

This was the first one I played with.  Just love the polka dot wrapping paper!  Some tissue scrunched and ruffled for a border and a mat stack die cut (& matted) with a sweet sentiment.

Supplies: Cardstock & ink- TPC Studios, PTI stamps - Love Lives Here, die - Mat Stack 2


This is the second card I created.  I used lots of PTI goodies on it.  And despite the imperfect background stamping I think it's my favorite.

I layered 2 shades of pink tissue paper (courtesy of Victoria's Secret) and mixed in white & die cut 3 different butterflies from the layers.  A little stitching up the middle & some long threads for antenna & the butterfly was done.

Here's more of a side view to see more of the dimension from just layers of simple tissue paper.

Supplies: Cardstock & ink - TPC Studios, PTI supplies: stamps - TT: Valentines, Framed, Love Lives Here, Background Basics: Sheet Music; dies - Love Lives Here butterfly, SS: Butterfly, butterfly, spiral notebook page

And how could I not totally fall in love with this striped tissue paper??  It was stuffed into a beautiful, bright red wine bottle bag with pretty red handles.  That's one of the handles thru the middle.  :)  All that I needed to add was a quick, cute stamped image.  I found that one of the dotted Vintage Labels fits perfectly in the TT: Valentines opening.

  8. Oh these are GREAT! I love how you stamped just a snippet of the musical background into that frame and added the perfect coordinating sentiment. That butterfly is perfect (and very appropriately dressed in Victoria's Secret...they always wear wings for their fashion show, right?!)
