PTI July 2013 Blog Hop





It's PTI Blog Hop time.  I love these blog hops.  I always have so much fun making whatever it is we are assigned to make, and then hopping around to see what everyone else has done.  This month, we had so many yummy color schemes to choose from.  I started early, since my parents are visiting, and I knew I would not get much crafting time while they were here.  

My goal was to make something using every color scheme, and to limit my flower cards to two.  As of this writing, I still have one color scheme left to go, but my parents will be leaving, and so I may just be able to pop in towards the end of the day with my 6th card.  

So, I'll just jump right in....



My first card uses my new Rainbow Circles dies, and was cased from this card by Nicole.  I got my order lightning quick this month, so was able to use some new goodies for the blog hop.  These dies are a little tricky to work with, so I was glad I had something to copy for the first time I used them.




Edited to add that I just realized that this card fits with the theme of CAS-ual Fridays this week, so I am entering it into their CFC110 Count Me In Challenge.




Lots from Ruby Rose on this card.







Mega Gracious Vases die and flowers from The Sweet Life on this card.  I was inspired to use a negative die cut for the vase from this stunning card by Amy.







The new Birthday Greetings set with the Rainbow Stripe dies.






Another PTI design team inspired card, this one using Live Love Life by Jess Witty.




That's it for me for now.  Enjoy the rest of the hop.  I will be checking everthing out as soon as my parents leave, and possibly making a card with the 6th color scheme.


Edited to add:  I will be linking up the birthday cards on this post to Seize the Birthday and The Birthday Card Challenge in the Moxie Fab World.

  5. You really made the most of your new order Joyce...love all of these cards, those new dies are so striking, especially in those great color combinations. My favorite is the birthday greetings card, that sentiment looks like it was made to go along with the die cuts. Great job, good luck getting that 6th one done today!

  23. When I saw the blog hop challenge had several color schemes, my first thought was, "I wonder if Joyce will attempt to try ALL the colors?" And I see by your next post that you actually did! You go, girl! Appreciate that you limited the flower cards to two. They are always beautiful, but it's also nice to see other topics too, like the bold swishes of color. The negative vase is just stunning. Great post!

    (and, so fun to hear that you were in Beverly looking at houses in your past ... a small world, right?!)
