January Blog Hop



It's blog hop time again! This month's challenge is to dress up the insides and outsides of our card--"the total package". You can read the challenge here .

For my card I used the new set, Baby Button Bits to make a floral background. I then stamped the "Wish Big" from Big and Bold Wishes using Versamark ink and heat embossed with clear EP.



On the inside of the card, I carried through the same design and added the second portion of the sentiment. You can see in the photo that I also stamped the envelope.



I'm looking forward to seeing everyone's projects tonight! Thanks for coming by!
Melissa

"Wish Big" (all PTI unless noted)
Stamps: Big & Bold Wishes, Baby Button Bits
Ink: Versamark, Enchanted Evening
Paper: Aqua Mist, Enchanted Evening and Linen Vellum
Other: Clear ep (Filigree), Heat tool, Threading Water punch (Fiskars), Aqua Mist satin ribbon, gems and Copic maker to color

You always make such elegant cards! Nice job!

I love the look of this stamp with no coloring. It just goes to show you how many ways you can use PTI stamps! I also think it's really cute how you stamped your image and sentiment on the bottom portion of the inside instead of in the center. Cool!

Love this set! Enchanted Evening ink can be used with everything I think - it's my second favorite after Dark Chocolate.

Oh I love your card. The Aqua Mist is so pretty.

I'm commenting late because my home computer kept locking up when I tried to access your blog, but it's fine on this one.

TFS!
