PTI Blog Hop and the Perfect Button



Yea! It's time for another Papertrey bloghop. I haven't participated in a few months, so it was fun to create a card for this month's blog hop. While I enjoy making a card for the hops, I have just as much fun visiting the blogs of all the participants, seeing all the amazing creations, being inspired, and adding even more PTI stamps to my wish list. :)

This month's challenge is to create the "whole package"--the outside, the inside, and the envelope of the card.



(You can click on photo for larger image)

I chose to use the floral image from Everyday Button Bits and use hearts as blossoms. I wanted to mix felt hearts with buttons. I cut the felt hearts with heart Nestabilities and my Cuttlebug. I had some heart buttons (a mix of red, pink, and white)that I bought last year, but the pink buttons were more Lavender Moon than Sweet Blush. You know you are a Papertrey Person when you view colors in terms of PTI colors.:) So I started looking through my Sweet Blush buttons for a heart, didn't see one, decided to mix heart buttons and round buttons when I glanced in the container and--there it was!---a sweet blush heart button!!! The perfect button!

For the background I chose four patterns--the top panel is the newly released Background Basics:Petal Power (great set!) stamped with Spring Rain ink on Spring Rain cs. The next panel is Sweet Blush cs stamped with Background Basics:Hearts in Pure Poppy. Third is Bitty Dot Basics in Pure Poppy punched with a Martha Stewart border punch. The bottom panel is Bitty Box Basics in Spring Rain.

For the inside I used a sentiment from Heart Prints . Then I inked only two of the stems which is not difficult with an ink cube. I used the heart from Limitless Labels for the blossoms. I left some room to write a note.


Now on the t0 back which only includes a stamp from Trademarks.



And finally the envelope. Again I inked part of the stamp from Everyday Button Bits and added the hearts from Limitless Labels and Heart Prints.



I think my sister will get this Valentine Card; she is worthy of that Sweet Blush heart button!

Enjoy your visits to the other blogs!

  1. OK so I've really gotta get to bed but couldn't sleep without commenting here first ;D
    I love the fresh colour combo of this! The inside is just as fab as the outside, in fact it'd make a card on it's own!
    Great job on the blog hop brief!

  23. I agree you need to maje sure that heart button goes to someone who is worthy! LOL. I love the oclors here. Spring Rain and Pure Poopy is something I pull out for boys cards, but it looks fab and girly with the Sweet Blush.
