Papertrey January Blog Hop Challenge






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 a 
Papertrey 
stamp 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!

Now go check out the rest of the Blog Hop participants on the list over on Nichole's blog.  Have a great Blog Hop Day!
