PTI February Blog Hop

Today's post was inspired by the following inspiration photo for Papertrey Ink's February blog hop.

Inspiration

The beautiful mix of soft, pale pink, creamy white, and mossy spring green brought me visions of springtime cards.  The variety of objects in this picture offered so many options for creativity.  Should I use the teacup or the vase?  What about the pears or the butterfly?  It was impossible to choose only one project for this blog hop.  Below are my final selections.


My first card features this year's PTI Anniversary Stamp Set, Painted Petals.  This is the first time I've inked up these stamps and I can say without a doubt that they are already one of my all time favorites.  I love how the layers create such a realistic look.  I also used the new Inspired:  Savior set which is perfect for Easter cards.


My next card features some simple watercoloring along with a trio of stamped die cut flowers from Quilted:  Summer and a verse from Cheerful Heart.  A little bow tied with baker's twine finishes it off nicely.


Third, is a card that combines last month's new Mint Julep cardstock with chevron vellum and the butterfly coverplate from the January release.  The die cut sentiment is from Scripted.


The scripted die cuts are used again on my final card for today.  I decided to go with a pink patterned background surrounded by a stitched frame.  I then added the stamped and die cut teacup and kettle from the Cup of Cheer set.

Thank you so much for visiting my blog today.  I've been so inspired by all of the wonderful projects others have shared on the blog hop.  I hope to share more spring projects with you soon.  Until then, be blessed.
