PTI April 2013 Blog Hop - Tilted

Hi Everyone! I'm having a little fun today and joining the PTI blog hop. This month's challenge is...

...TILTED!
 
Here is what I came up with...
 

I just LOVE my Mini Blooms PTI Stamp set. I stamped the setiment on a piece of white tilted cardstock then stamped the flowers in soft stone. I created a simple wrap around banner out of cardstock behind the sentiment panel (trendy and SO easy!) I finished my stamping off with the mini blooms again on the kraft base in white ink.
 
Thanks for hopping by!

Arrrr! A Pirate Birthday Card

Hi Everyone! We had a crazy busy birthday weekend. One party had a pirate theme so I did my best to pull together a pirate card with the stamps I had on hand. Yep, no pirate stamps in my collection. ;)
 

I was inspired by Elena's card HERE. Isn't she awesome? It was a nice jumping off point since I didn't have much time to create this card.
I combined stamps from two of THE BEST stamp companies. Lawn Fawn and Paper Smooches. :) From Lawn Fawn I used Summertime Charm (stamps and die), Bannerific, Interlocking Backdrops, So Much to Say and Sally's ABCs. From Paper Smooches I used their new set Wicked Nauticool.




A few fun details:
- I stamped the herringbone background stamp from Interlocking Backdrops randomly on the black sail in white and grey to create a weathered look.
- I tucked three sequins behind the boat to look like stolen treasure. Arrr Matey!
