Papertrey Blog Hop - April 2010

Hello everyone! I don't know where you are on the hop - but welcome to my end of the blog-o-sphere :0)

Our challenge this month was to create something on our cards made of tissue paper! With all of the lovely new dies released by Papertrey that shouldn't be too difficult ....
except that some of us don't have ours yet because the postal system has been just a leeeetle slower than usual :0(

Anyway, some brain tickling was involved in this one - and here's where I came out at the end!


I wound the tissue into strips and curled them around on top of a piece of Scor-Tape to stick them down into a circle. I topped each one with a Papertrey Button - complete with a little pearl in the centre - Betsy Veldman style :0)


Materials - Cardstock, Ink, Buttons, Twine, Polka Dot, Leaf and Sentiment Stamps - Papertrey Ink; "Grass" knitted texture - Waltzingmouse; Patterned Paper, Source Unknown; Punch - Fiskars; Pearls - Kaiser

I keep thinking of Mary Engelbreit when I look at these colours - she really has made them all her own, I think!

Well I have tried to keep it short, because the list of blogs just gets longer and longer every month - and you will probably want to keep-a-hoppin' !

Have a great time - and a blessed evening! :0)
