PTI blog hop - peachy petals

Here is the inspiration photo:


And here's my card:

Supplies; Stamps - Vintage labels, Delightful dahlia, Mat stack 1 (sentiment), Paper - Harvest gold, Spring moss, Summer sunrise bitty dot, Songbird PP (Prima), SU PP, Other - Labels 1 die, Beautiful blooms II #1 die, Filigree border die, Melon berry button, twine, distress ink, melon berry ink.

New goodies & MIM selective inking in a sea of blue

I picked up my December release goodies at the post office after work, so I had to play with them quick before bed (hence the patterned paper)!

I used selective inking for the sentiments (didn't ink up the period at the end) as in one of the Make it mondays challenges.  I angled the stamp on the block and then smooshed it a bit when making the impression, so it's not perfect. 

I used the In the meadow snow drift die for the sentiment, and after finding this amazing button I had to use it.  I snipped some saddle stitch ribbon to make leaves.

Supplies; Stamps - Mat stack collection 1 (sentiment), Paper - Aqua mist, Hawaiian shores, Memory box PP Jubilee, white, Other - In the meadow die, Filigree border die, Pure poppy button, Spring moss saddle stitch ribbon.

Favourites of 2011

***Edited to say: something happened with my blog linking up with picasa, which I had not noticed before, and I deleted the photos meant for here.  :( 

After starting a new job in August my cardmaking (or rather posting) took a bit of a break, but nonetheless, here are my favourites that I posted from 2011 -

Now off to see the others!
