Papertrey Ink November 2016 Blog Hop Challenge

Hello! Here’s the inspiration photo for this month.

I really love the look of gold and hawaiian shores. Since I didn’t have any cardstick with me, I decided to blend some hawaiian shores ink with a mini round blending tool. I then stamped the smallest round dot from the Bits & Buttons Mini Stamp set and embossing it with gold embossing powder.



I finished off the card with the sentiment and the pine needles embossed in white on a piece of black cardstock. I drew a few circles with the Versamark pen and embossed it gold too and then adhered the black panel to the bottom of the card.
Thanks for stopping by.Have a lovely weekend.

Supplies used:
Card: PTI Stamper's Select White Cardstock, Black Cardstock
Stamps: PTI Peaceful Pinecones, PTI Bits & Buttons Mini Stamp set, PTI Silent Night
Ink: Hawaiian Shores, Versamark
Others: White and Gold embossing powder, Versamark Watermark Pen, Blending tool

bow tie spinner card




I used the bow builder punch from Stampin' Up to make this cute bow tie. Instead of placing a shirt on the card front, I decided to do a rectangle die cut and adhere a collar to make it look like a shirt. The bow tie just finishes it off!
Have a great day!
