PTI May Blog Hop "Yellow" Card


For this month's Papertrey Ink Blog Hop challenge we were to use the color yellow in our project. Yellow is not a "go to" color for me, but you can't go wrong with a yellow flower, so Friends 'Til the End seemed the perfect set for this challenge. I stamped the smaller flower in Palette Noir ink on yellow mulberry paper and on Dandelion Bazzill cardstock. I wet the mulberry paper just outside the edges of my flower & tore around it & placed it underneath my cut out cardstock flower to soften the look. Yellow Stickles and a Hero Arts yellow gem were added to its center. For my sentiment I chose "sending hugs" from the Friends' set, also stamped in Palette Noir, and attached all to a gray metallic panel. I added yellow Fancy Pants pompom trim using PTI's 1/8" Score Tape, which I love for this type of application, along with a row of Hero Arts yellow gems. Three more little yellow gems @ the end of my sentiment finished it off!

Just wanted to say I only found your site today and it’s really cool. You’ve been very busy and have so many good ideas. Your creations are really cute. I write a London based crafty e-zine and blog named Extremely Crafty Ideas at http://extremelycrafty.blogspot.com/ Would love to hear what you think. You and some of the other card crafters I’ve recently found have inspired me to write an upcoming card craft e-zine!
