Papertrey Ink January's Blog Hop


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!  Go through your stash and see what little used treasure it might hold.

Unfortunately I have a few PTI stamp sets that have only been used a couple of times or haven't been used for a while, so this challenge was great to dig out those older sets that usually get forgotten about when the new ones arrive. I used a gorgeous set, Cupcakes Collection, which has just had a new set of matching dies released which are now on my wishlist now! And here's my offering.


I did use Viva La Verve's January sketch #4 (I think this is the first time in ages I've done all their challenges in one month!), Stacey's Curtain Call #66 to use Lavender Lace, Pretty in Pink, Very Vanilla, Cherry Cobbler and Bravo Burgundy and for Papertrey Princess Mara's Punch It challenge to use punches.

Recipe:

Stamps: Cupcake Collection from PTI

Papers: Lavender Lace (retired and only scraps left now!), Cherry Cobbler, Very Vanilla, Sweet Pea DSP (retired) all from SU, Distressed Dots DSP from PTI

Inks: Lavender Lace, Pretty in Pink, Bravo Burgundy

Accessories: Very Vanilla ribbon, Word Window Punch, Eyelet Border Punch all from SU, Limited Layers 1 3/4" Circles from PTI, Frosted Lace Stickles, Card Candy from Craftworks Cards

Right I'm off to go blog hopping and see all the other gorgeous cards in the PTI Blog Hop! Thanks for stopping by!
