New Year's Resolutions
With the new year comes a clean slate along with many resolutions.This month's blog hop challenge involves you challenging yourself to use aPapertreystamp set that has yet to see ink or even one that might be collecting a little dust!
Yay!!! My first blog hop challenge! This challenge was easy for me. I'm working on valentine cards now so I had to look no further than my desk where I had just pulled stamp sets. I knew I wanted to use the Echo Park Be Mine sheet music paper with a darling red heart doily that I found at Michaels. Then when I saw PTI's Just the Ticket stamp set, I knew I had my card. This wasn't the first time I used this stamp set but I hadn't used it in quite a while. Then I saw the Happy Valentine's Day sentiment on PTI's Love Songs stamp set and knew it was a perfect fit - for the card and challenge. I just got this stamp set (Thank you Jamie!) and hadn't used it yet.
Do you like the red heart button? I made it myself with the medium heart print die and pure poppy cardstock from PTI, thin chipboard, Glossy Accents and a hole punch. It's the first time I've used Glossy Accents - whoa, I love that stuff! The button was finished off with some pure poppy baker's twine. So cute!
I grabbed some tickets that had already been die cut and were in my stash. When I stamped the ticket frames, I thought it was odd that they were so much smaller than the tickets. When I checked them with PTI's ticket die, I realized that the tickets were really cut using the Tim Holtz ticket die that I also have. I was going to recut the tickets and then thought better of it. I really like how the tickets look with more of a border. A perfect accident - lol!
