PTI July Blog Hop

Playing along with PTI's July Blog Hop! Here's the pretty inspiration photo

I created two cards

I started with a Rustic Cream cardstock base. I inked on the grid pattern using Antique Linen Distress ink. I then added the script background in fine linen using Background Basics Text. The leaves from Songbird were stamped in Spring Moss and then the roses from Sweet Life were stamped in Sweet Blush, Autumn Rose and Scarlet Jewel. The rose leaves from Sweet Life were stamped using Spring Moss and Simply Chartreuse. A strip of ribbon was wrapped on the panel and I added the scalloped oval and stamped oval from Spellbinders. The sentiment is from Wishing You. I cut two butterflies from the polka dot vellum using Beautiful Butterflies and heat embossed the edges in gold. A couple of pearls in the center of the butterfly finishes this card off.


This next card uses the same Rustic Cream cardstock base. I added a panel of Scarlet Jewel cardstock and a panel of printed paper from my scraps and cut the butterflies using Beautiful Butterflies, again from scraps. The edges of the butterflies were heat embossed in gold with a pearl in the centers. The banner was stamped and heat embossed again in gold, using Boutique Borders Sympathy set.
Enjoy the rest of the hop! Thanks so much for stopping by! Blessings~ Birgit
