Papertrey Ink August Blog Hop


Its time for Papertrey Ink's August Blog Hop. I've been busy working on Stamp-a-faire cards its almost 12:30 and i have 3 more to go! I hope get them done and take photo's of everything before going  work at 2:30. Then tonight i can start posting them!!

I completed this card a few day's ago knowing i'd be busy with Stamp-a-faire cards. PTI provided several options for inspiration, each one included a photo, color suggestions and a sketch. This is the one that i picked:

I took a pretty literal take on the sketch, can you tell? :D Ha Ha!!  I stamped the stripes, one in each color on the cardbase.

Then i trimmed a piece of cardstock several times to get 1/4 wide strips. This is the same width as my small double sided tape and i placed it along each strip. Then i poured glitter over each strip, lightly pressing the glitter into each strip.

Next i adhered the strips to the card to the cardbase over the space between the stamped strips. Last i stamped the sentiment above the pink strip.

Thanks for stopping by!!
