PTI August Blog Hop: Autumn Theme


Blog Hop time again -- Woo-Hoo!!! This month Nichole challenged us to create an autumn-themed project for Papertrey Ink's August Blog Hop. One of her suggestions was to use fabric on your creation . . . let's just say I tried, but failed miserably! So I went back to an idea that had struck me the first time I saw PTI's Everyday Classics Anniversary Set. I created my card based on the stamped flourish, to which I then added a sliver of Dark Chocolate card stock for a "wooden shelf" to hold my teapot. Seed beads sewn to my lace trim added the final detail. I can think of many ways to use this little "shelf" for other projects! Okay, I'm off to see all the wonderous projects all you hoppers created!
Paper: PTI's Summer Sunrise, Dark Chocolate & Vintage Cream
Stamps: PTI's Tea for Two & Everday Classics
Ink: PTI's Dark Chocolate
Embellishments: Lace Trim, seed beads, paper flower from stash
Tools: Spellbinders Wizard; Curved Rectangles Dies
Finished Card Size: 6 3/8" x 4 5/8"

Hello Maricopa Neighbor! :) You did a fabulous job creating a sense of warmth with your teapot card! Nothing like sipping a cup of simmered mulled spiced tea in the fall! :) TFS

Janelle said...

Oh, your shelf is a stroke of genius! And your teapot made me remember that I poured a cup of tea about an hour ago and it's still sitting on the kitchen counter. Off to find the tea (and the microwave!). Great card!

The lace is wonderful with the teapot. Love the warm fall colors. The orange flower reminds me of a bittersweet vine--which I always use to decorate for autumn.
