May 2011 PTI Blog Hop 'Flowers'

Hello everyone! I was home sick today (nasty sore throat) and had some time, so I decided to join in on the Papertrey Ink blog hop. The challenge was to showcase our favorite take on flowers. Well, thanks to the talented Michelle Wooderson, I first saw gold embossed flowers on her blog a while ago. Now it is my favorite way to stamp flowers!


After embossing the Violets I water colored them and cut them out. I decided to use them to embellish a tiny envelope because my Postmarks stamp set has not seen ink yet. Yeah, terrible I know! I love making the pretty little stamps, in any color- a bunch of different stamp combinations and a matching die. So cute!



Now I'm off to check out the other blog hoppers, looks like a ton of beautiful cards to look at! 
Thanks for peeking in!


Stamps: PTI YOF Violets, Postmarks
Ink: Versamark, Memento, Memories, PTI
Paper: PTI, small gift envelope
Tools & Accessories: purple satin ribbon, PTI Spring Moss grosgrain ribbon, Filigree embossing powder,Viva Decor Pearl Pen
