Papertrey Ink December 2015 Blog Hop

Hello friends.  It's time for the monthly Blog Hop over at Papertrey Ink and this month was no exception when it comes to beautiful inspiration photos...absolutely loved this one!

Blog hop inspiration

Because I take everything so literally, of course my starting point was circles and the blackboard technique!  I used the Tag Sale #4 die to make a card and 3 tags.  Take a look:



I used Melissa's Choose Joy stamp set for the sentiment and the little flourish on the top and bottom of the tag, stamping it in white first, and then using a few Copic markers (G24 & YG67) and Scarlet Jewel ink to stamp over the white on the flourishes (just like Dawn McVey showed us a few weeks back in a Make it Monday video). 

Did basically the same thing for the 3 tags I made, using the "Peace" from Think Big Favorites: #21, the "Love" from Heart 2 Heart #11, and the "Joy" from the Enclosed: Bell stamp set.  I used the same flourish as I did on the card, and then also added the holly and berries from the Enclosed: Bell stamp set.  I really love the look of the color over the white on the black background.  Take a look:




Thanks so much for stopping by today and have fun hopping around to all the other blogs to see how they interpreted the lovely inspiration photo.  You can check it all out right HERE.

  23. Marcia, I love how you stamped on the black card with white and then came back in with colour. I really tried to do this for my project, and it just wasn't working out - I guess I started with a bad design. But yours are lovely and so well done. Beautiful designs!
