Thanks For All You Do ~ PTI Blog Hop


Hello friends!  I was a little leery about this month's inspiration photo for the PTI July Blog Hop.  I don't have many "nautical" stamps (except the lighthouses) so I went with a colour inspiration...all those beautiful blues with pops of white and red!  I picked up an old friend again (Gran's Garden) and pulled out a bunch of blue inks and went to town.  I think I love the simplicity of Gran's Garden...not too many dies and a simple 2 step stamping that looks great everytime.  I'm also using the Make it Monday challenge of "Repeating a Greeting."   I can't wait to see if any of my PTI peeps did the same with the colour, not the topic.  Thanks for stopping by! 


what's in it?
stamps: Gran's Garden, Enclosed: Apple (PTI)
dies: Gran's Garden, Tag Sale 10 (PTI)
ink: blueberry sky, pure poppy, oceans tide (PTI), soft sky, night of navy, blue bliss (SU), versafine onyx

So pretty! Love Gran’sGarden, such a favorite! Your card is lovely!
Sure wish you were coming to Cincinnati next month!

Very Pretty! This design shows great use of scale and white space. The placement of the sentiment and the use of the blue/gray color family makes this not only a well-integrated design but also a visually exciting one.

Beautifully conceived, organized and executed. I will have to add your blog to my list of places to go for inspiration.

Hugz,

Absolutely BEAUTIFUL Maureen!! Even though I did an ocean scene (I always take things too literally!!) I was so glad to see you take just the colors and use it for your card! And what a perfect choice Gran's Garden was...those flowers look FABULOUS in blues!! :0)
