PTI April 2013 Blog Hop










The theme this month for the PTI Blog Hop is things that are tilted.  Apparently that is very trendy.  I can report that for me, it is also very fun.  I ran out of time, but did not run out of things to tilt.  Here are 4 cards with tilted elements.

First up is a Father's Day card for my husband, who loves his TV.  Now, if I could only get tiny Premiere League Soccer stamps to fill up those screens, he would be all set.  I used some of my new SU inks on this card--Garden Green, Baja Breeze, and More Mustard.  I am really loving my new inks--they are so juicy and colorful.  I am also entering this card into this week's Simon Says Stamp Anything Goes Challenge.






I can tell I am going to love my Sketched Shapes stamps.  This is the first card I made with that set--a CAS birthday card.  This card, as well as the next two cards will also be entered into this week's CAS-ual Friday CFC99:  Birthday Bash, as well as A Passion For Papertrey:  Let's Celebrate.




On this next card, I used a little trick I learned during my Pattern Play class--use a thin strip of striped pattern paper to select the colors for your card.  So, I took a strip of paper from Basic Grey Cottage pad, and matched my colors to it.  Hero Arts Pale Tomato ink, and kraft card stock.




Last of all, a card using Cutting Garden flowers, with some stems borrowed from Day Dreamer, which was still on my desk at the time.



That's it for now.  Enjoy the rest of the hop.
