Papertrey Ink March Blog Hop

Hi all!  Sorry I have been so absent this week!  I have been working on some items for my photography business...so I have been a busy girl!

I was able to get a card done for this month's PTI Blog Hop really quickly today.  I had plans to get more than this one card done, but the schedule just didn't allow it this time around.  Here is the info on this month's blog hop:

This month we're calling all button lovers!  Now's your chance to explore the world of possibilities that
buttons hold!  From borders to backgrounds, accents and embellishments, or even incorporating them
into stamp images like any of our Button Bits stamp sets.  From paper projects to home decor to jewelry
and more, the sky's the limit!  We want to see all your very best creations using buttons and the
inspiration we will gain from each other should prove to be truly enticing!

And this is what I came up with!
"I Just Love You Grandma" supplies: 
Cardstock: Bazzill Basics
Paper: Basic Grey
Stamps: Papertrey Ink (Delightful Dahlia set) 
Ink: Clearsnap (Pigment: black, razzberry, lime) 
Felt/Buttons/Diecut: Papertrey Ink
Jewels: Doodlebug Designs
Pearls: Kaiser Craft
Ribbon: Renaissance By Design
Pins: Making Memories & Maya Road
Corner Rounder: EK Success
Diecut Machine: Cuttlebug by Provo Craft

Instructions:  Fold patterned paper in half to make card base, and round the bottom corners.  Round the bottom corners of a white cardstock block.  Stamp the sentiment, flower and leaves to the front.  Cut a scalloped border to the Hawaiian Shores felt using the Cuttlebug and medium scalloped diecut.  Adhere the border strip to the white cardstock, and adhere the entire block to the front of the card.  Tie ribbon around a patterned paper strip.  Stick pins through the bow, adding buttons to the top pin.  Adhere this paper block to the top of the white cardstock using dimensional adhesive.  Accent the flower and sentiment with jewels and pearls. 

If you haven't tried out the PTI felt yet....make sure you add some to your next order.  It cuts perfectly, and just adds so much to projects! 

Well, that is all I have for now!  Hope you are having a wonderful week! ♥♥♥

Until later,
~Lea
