Happy Monday! No school again today due to weather and area power outages. We have been very fortunate and did not lose power. It is nice to be home, but I know we will have to make up these missed school days later.
I decided to play along with this month's Papertrey Ink Blog Hop Challenge. Here is the inspiration photo.
I chose PTI Brushed Off stamp set. I stamped the first layer in white pigment ink. (TIP: Make sure white pigment ink pad is freshly reinked for best results). Then, I went back and layered stamped different shades of blue using PTI enchanted evening, MFT blueberry, and some Ranger Distress ink colors. I love the bold color payoff I was able to get on the black card stock.
For the focal sentiment, I started with some summer sunrise card stock. I stamped using tangy orange ink using PTI Background Basics: Woodgrain stamp set. Once the card stock was stamped, I die cut the word using PTI Birthday Cheer die cuts. I cut three more words using white card stock and layered all four together for added dimension. I layered some loose white quilt threading behind and secure with glue.
I used the Birthday Cheer stamp set for the Happy stamped sentiment. I chose to use the smaller of the Building Blocks die. I stamped the sentiment using the MISTI with black licorice hybrid ink to perfectly place the sentiment on the strip to the right. I popped up using foam tape.
I finished my card with a few of the wooden stars that came with the PTI Holiday Folk Mini Kit. I think this is a cool looking masculine card!
As always thanks so much for hopping by!
