Papertrey January Blog Hop Challenge

It's Papertrey Blog Hop time again! I had to miss November and December because of holidays so I'm glad the kids let me play along today. The theme this month is to use your uninked PTI or sets that are gathering dust. I don't have any sets that have never seen ink but plenty that haven't seen it lately.


This is not my typical card. And I feel like it's missing something. Even if I knew what it was that it needs, my toddler's up and he is a mini-Godzilla in the craft room so this is it for now, lol. I fit three under-used sets on this card. The tree is from Father Knows Best, the hills are dotted with Polka Dot Basics 2, and the sun is made from one of the decorative tabs in Mini Scrapbook Series: Tabs. The sentiment is from Daily Designs Sentiments, which sees lots of ink. ;) The hills and handcut and sponged around the edges. The sun was begrudgingly handcut, too. The cloud is, of course, one of the adorable PTI cloud dies. The tree trunk I letterpressed with the woodgrain plate. That's all folks! I can't wait to see the awesomeness everyone else made! Thanks for looking!

Supplies: Stamps - Papertrey Ink Father Knows Best, Mini Scrapbook Series: Tabs, Polka Dot Basics 2, Daily Designs Sentiments
