Papertrey Ink January Blog Hop

myhome
Good morning friends and Papertrey Ink fans :)  It’s the 25th so it must be the Papertrey Ink Blog Hop!!  Today’s post is all about Stamping News Years Resolutions….resolutions to use those yet to be inked stamps or dust off an old set to use again.   I was sooooo excited about this as I have a growing pile of new stamp sets just begging to be used…first up is the wonderful Love Lives Here set with dies.  Oh, I love Melissa Phillips and just HAD to have this set :)  How adorable are those little cut out hearts on this house and all the dies in this set?  I loaded on all the sweet little bits in an homage to Melissa :)  Next up is Dawn McVey’s Love Birds set.  I HAD to have this set and dies as well!! LOL
lovebirds Feeling a bit nervous about how to use this set for the first time, I went through Dawn’s release week posts and found THIS CARD to help inspire my own (scroll down to the 4th card).  I loved stamping the cage onto some fine linen…I think it really stands out :)  Last up is a card inspired by the latest WaCCCky (Wild Card Colour Challenge).   It uses the Mat Stack 2 Collection and Mega Mixed Messages.  Now, I use this last set a lot, but have never inked the Feel Better stamp…so here it is…

What a gorgeous bunch of cards! I didn't buy that Love Lives Here set...yet...just barely resisted putting it in my cart, but I think you've sent me over the edge with your card!

Kay said...

Wow- for a second there, I thought I was looking at peeks from the Design Team- you really channeled the designers here!
The cards are all stunning, and I think I've gotta CASE that first one; it's simply delicious!

Heather Jensen said...

Beatuiful Maureen. I love this set and really should have ordered it. You did an amazing job with the shabby chic style that I love so much. The two colors of seam binding, pretty glitter star, and adorable little house are so sweet. :)

All three cards are lovely, the first being my favorite. Wonderful pop of blue in the midst of those warm colors. Oh, the ribbon in the third card is exquisite. I wouldn't think those colors would create something so mesmerizing, but they did.

Marisa said...

You've been a busy stamper and I see you've upped your quota to three cards ;) Great mix of cards and styles. The bird cage one is my favorite.

Oh Diva! You've outdone yourself here! That first card is beyond gorgeous and truly captures Melissa's style!!!!
The second card has me jumping up and down wishing my own Love Birds set would hurry up and get over here and your last wonderful card has me thinking that purple might not be that scary to work with after all ;D
