Papertrey January Blog Hop Challenge

Hello friends. It’s a Papertrey blog hop! I’m looking forward to hopping on everyone’s blogs for some Pink inspiration. If you’re starting on this blog, visit Nichole Heady’s blog for details on the hop. I had fun with this challenge and made a couple of cards to share.


I have to say that my favorite stamps to use right now are from Mum’s the Word and Background Basics: Postmarks. I also love Tag Sale #3 and I hope Papertrey releases more de-bossed dots shapes in the future. hint hint. I did take the neutral color options and used white and a little grey for the leaves and stems. I started with a scalloped vellum envelope and cut it in half. The back flap is what you see and I tucked the tag behind the flap of the envelope. I tied up the corner of the flap with DMC floss #899, which matches the pink Hibiscus Burst well. I embossed the sentiment on the vellum envelope flap from Hello, Friend in white.


My second card.


I used an embossing folder for the base of the card. The vellum is stamped with Inside & Out: Well Wishes and I tucked the pink Faith and Hope die cut ribbon behind the vellum. Washi tape and a satin ribbon finishes it off. IMG_4813

The third card has some green and linen, so it’s not technically part of the blog hop, but I thought I’d share as a little bonus. I hope you don’t mind. 🙂


Same gorgeous Mum’s the Word stamp, tag and background. This time I added the die cut hello. To give the tag a little shabby chic look, I used a white-out pen along the edges.


Enjoy the blog hop and thanks for visiting.

  1. Each of your cards is lovely. The pairing of white and soft pink always seems to add charm. Like Connie, the third card is my favorite. The layered ‘hello’ allows it to stand out without overwhelming the mums. And the green looks like a neutral to me the way it’s used. 😉
