January 2013 PTI Blog Hop









Keeping this short and sweet. Bet you will have lots to look at.
 The theme is Black Backgrounds.
I love this fun new set from Papertrey Ink. I am having a bit of a hard time getting the center leaves to
stamp solidly. So I pressed down with my hand 
then cut it out by hand , then added on to the main image.
  If you look closley you can see what I mean. 
Other than that … I love this stamp set!  
There are so many variations to this set. 

Happy Blog Hopping!

  1. Gorgeous!!
    You know I love red and black together...
    and when you add some gingham to the mix...
    perfection!! :)
    You're slowly getting me "off the fence" with this set because I love what you've been doing with it...
    and do you stamp on some fun foam?
    I've found that some images...especially solids or large ones...
    just stamp so much better if you use some fun foam underneath.
    A tip from a friend passed on to another!
    Hugs!!

  2. This card is just so beautiful! Love the wood texture, colors and design! I haven't used my set yet. I think it is so pretty. Thanks for the "heads up" about stamping the leaves. Sometimes when I have that problem, I grab my mouse pad, lay a piece of paper down, and stamp on top of it. It seems to help.:-)
