Papertrey Ink February Blog Hop

Posted: February 25, 2012 in Cards, Papertrey Ink

Hi there.

This is my very first time playing along with the Papertrey Ink Blog Hop.  I have never been able to participate before..  Mainly because I don’t get much crafty time to myself, but after ALOT of help from my PTI forum buddies when I had lost my mojo, I spent yesterday making some cards, and one of them happened to be an interactive card, so I was thrilled to think I would be able to participate after work today.

Here is my card.

I haven’t received my spinner dyes yet, so had to go back to Nichole’s (very helpful) video tutorial and try and work it out myself.  I can’t wait till my dyes gets here, it will be as easy as one, two three then!

I used the Big Birthday Wishes stamp set to stamp the ‘and fabulous’ part on the underside of the card, so that it would show through the spinner space.  For the background, I used A Little Argyle, and (although you can’t see it very well in the photo) after I had stamped the black criss cross over the design, I went back in with versamark and then added clear glitter emossing powder, so IRL it’s very sparkly..

I used the Tag It’s #10 stamp set for the spinning element.  The 21 which was cut out using the By the Numbers Die was cut out of PTI coasters and then I cut out the numbers again using DP and stuck the two together.  I mounted the numbers on a Mat Stack #4 Die Cut that had been stamped using the Modern Wood Mats Stamp set.

I hope you like it!  I can’t wait to see everyone else’s creations.
Thanks for stopping by..

  2. Your card really stood off the page from all the other entries, the colors are awesome! And I love that you stamped the sentiment in the track and the woodgrain mat, too 🙂 Hooray for getting your mojo back and your first PTI blog hop!

    I love the colors on this card. The numbers really pop off the woodgrain. But gotta say my favorite tool is clear glitter embossing powder! I could use that stuff on every card.
