Papertrey Ink Blog Hop


Yay! This is my first time to participate in a Papertrey blog hop. I am always inspired by the Papertrey team, so tonight's challenge was alot of fun. The hard part was choosing exactly which project to highlight. I chose Debbie Olson as my inspiration because I feel she always delivers! I have actually purchased stamp sets before (that I wasn't sure about) because of things I saw Debbie do with them.

Her projects that inspired me tonight can be found here- http://debbiedesigns.typepad.com/muse_and_amuse/2009/04/all-things-grow-with-love.html

and here-
http://debbiedesigns.typepad.com/muse_and_amuse/2009/03/pti-march-releases.html (last card).

As a matter of fact, I was so inspired that I did two different cards because I couldn't decide which way I wanted to go with the design. The bright colors on these cards also remind me of one of my other favorite designers Betsy Veldman. :)Here are my cards:



Thanks for looking!

ETA: In my excitement, I forgot to list supplies.
For the first card, I used Papertrey Ink stamps, ribbon, cardstock and ink, Cosmo Cricket patterned paper, Ranger dye ink (stream), and self-adhesive pearls by Prima. I also used some shimmerz paint in Pixie Dust on the icing.

For the second card, I used Papertrey Ink stamps, ribbon, ink, and cardstock and Cosmo Cricket patterned paper.

Happy first hop! Glad you could come out and play. I like both cards, but I think perhaps the tulips slightly better probably because I am longing for Spring!
