May 2012 Papertrey Blog Hop!

I created the following card for the Papertrey Ink May 2012 Blog Hop. I used my new Papertrey Ink cardstock for the card base and I am completely in love.

This months inspiration is a unique color scheme: a bright green paired with bold black & white patterns.

Paper: Cardstock (Papertrey Ink), Patterned Paper (DCWV)
Stamps: Sentiment (Papertrey Ink), Chair (Hero Arts)
Die Cut Label and Frame: Papertrey Ink

Use That Stash Episode #2 - Circle Punches & Paper Scraps

Another episode focusing on digging into our tools and stash to create some easy cards. Thanks for stopping by!

Use That Stash Episode #1 - Paper Scraps

I find myself more and more overwhelmed by all of the product that seems to have accumulated in my craft room. I find myself spending more time trying to keep it organized and less time actually creating. I wanted to challenge myself to use all of these products and to really be aware of what I am purchasing. I seem to have a particular weakness for stamps and paper even though there are stamps in my stash that I have never even used. The first episode in my Use That Stash series focuses on a quick and easy card to use those paper scraps.

Thanks for watching!

Scrapmaster's Paradise Blog Hop Challenge: Orange

Here is my entry for the Blog Hop Challenge over at Scrapmaster's Paradise. The flower was one I had in my stash for a VERY long time, so I was thrilled to use it on this card.

Paper: Stampin' Up (Crumb Cake, Cajun Craze, Tangerine Tango)
Stamps: SP & Company (Mini Card Creations)
