Papertrey Ink's April 2011 Blog Hop


It's time again for Papertrey Ink's Monthly Blog Hop and this month is dedicated to all the boys and men in our lives! Now's your chance to create Father's Day projects, boy birthday cards and more to build up your stash! Focus on masculine color schemes, fresh pattern combinations, understated embellishments and unique uses of images you may already have in your stash!

I have ordered loads of the new boys stamps and dies, but they have not yet arrived and with all the bank holidays we're having at the moment (2 this weekend and 2 more next weekend) I'm not expecting customs to push it through too quickly! So I pulled out my fairly new Enjoy the Ride set and combined it with old colour combo CC04 from SCS which was to use Only Orange and Ballet Blue, which I swapped out for Orange Zest and Blueberry Sky from PTI instead. The layout is from My Time Made Easy's Pretty Patterns Challenge #6 as well.


Recipe:

Stamps: Enjoy the Ride from PTI

Papers: Orange Zest, Blueberry Sky, Stampers Select White, Halloween Prints all from PTI, Chocolate Chip from SU

Inks: Pumpkin Pie from SU, Memento Tuxedo Black, Copics

Accessories: Zig Zag Punch from Martha Stewart, Buttons from Elzybells, Chocolate Chip Ribbon (retired) from SU, 3D gloss, Jute twine, Sunshine Impressions Plat both from PTI

Thanks for looking and hope you all have fun with this month's blog hop too!

    By the way the reason I chose Jack to put on my card is because it is my favorite name for a boy! I only have a girl though. :)
