Papertrey Ink May Blog Hop ~ Flowers

 feltloopyflower

Good morning!!  Well, it’s the 25th and that usually means I’m joining in the PTI Blog Hop fun.  This month’s challenge was perfect timing.  I’ve been experimenting with a few new (to me anyways!) ways to create flowers.  First up is this loopy felt flower.  These fun little babies are SOOOO fast to make…seriously, two minutes and that includes a coffee break!  I was playing along with a colour challenge last week and came across the tutorial link HERE…I also got to play with some new PTI goodies that hadn’t seen ink yet…Dawn’s newsprint background and the Mat 3 stamp and die :)  It’s a little crazy with all the different patterns, but after the initial shock, I think it’s a cheery little card :)  Up next is another flower made with the Hello, Friend stamp set and the Friendly Flower die. (it’s also using the colours from the latest WaCCCky – Wild Card Colour Challenge!)  It wouldn’t be a PTI blog hop without one!! IMHO…HA!

I stamped 4 die cut flowers with one of the flower image in summer sun yellow.  Then I cut the petals a bit more, scrunched them all up and sewed them together with the button and twine.  Ah, another button card…told you I’m addicted!!  Thanks for visiting and I can’t wait to hop along later after work.  Your sweet comments make me smile :D

Thank you for your sweet comments on my blog. I did travel through Kamloops actually. My aunt & uncle have a cabin on Roche Lake. We missed them this trip through but hope to get up there again soon. Hope you had a fabulous holiday weekend, and are getting some nice weather. :)
