Papertrey Ink Blog Hop May 2018

Hello friends.  It's the 25th and that means it's time for Papertrey Ink's monthly BLOG HOP challenge!  This month's challenge is all about camping/glamping...I think I could be talked into glamping if it looked like this!!


Isn't that just the sweetest photo?!  Since I'm not a camper (not into dirt and bugs...yuck!!), I didn't have any camping themed stamps, however, the gingham tablecloths and flowers spoke to me right away!!


I used DSP from the Smoky Shadow Bitty Big pack for my background and then created my bouquet using flowers and leaves from both the Mixed Bouquet and Botanical Bounty stamp sets.


I lightly stamped the Just The Jar: Pint onto my white panel before stamping my flowers and then stamped the jar again on embossable acetate  (Embossable Window plastic by Judi-kins) with white embossing powder to give the jar a more realistic glass look.


I used the To The Point Edger's II dies at the bottom of my white stamped panel and then layered it over the Smoky Shadow DSP.  A few black enamel dots, some twine, and a Tiny Tag finished off my card.

Can't wait to go hoppin' and see what everyone else came up with this month...I'm never disappointed!!  You can check it all out right HERE.  

Thanks for stopping by today ... I love it when you do!

  21. Marcia, you always come up with such unique designs, and this is no exception. Love your soft and artsy florals with that realistic pint jar of water! The Bitty Big is the perfect background and love the cute edge. Do I really need both of those floral sets? You’re convincing me. 😉
