Papertrey March Blog Hop

Today is Papertrey’s March Blog Hop! I’m visiting my sweetest friend Victoria for a girl’s weekend and we made time to get our blog hop cards done.  The inspiration photo had colors that were way outside my comfort range…it was challenging. Card supplies are listed below.  Hope you get a chance to get some crafting time in this weekend.

Papertrey 10th Anniversary – Build a Birdhouse Challenge

How about an adorable birdhouse?  Papertrey is giving away an super sweet birdhouse template for their 10th Anniversary festivities.  It’s perfect for putting those Easter treats in for your kids teacher or for the kids.  Unfortunately, my boys would demolish the house to get the candy….so it’s better to give it to one of their teachers who might actually appreciate it.  I wanted to use spring colors since it’s going to have Easter candy in it.  Card supplies are listed below.

Supplies:

  • Patterned Paper: Hibiscus Burst Patterned Paper Pack (Papertrey); Soft Stone Patterned Paper Pack (Papertrey)
  • Stamps: Polka Dot Parade #1 (Papertrey)
  • Ink: Onyx Black (Versafine)
  • Dies: Tag Sale #8 (Papertrey)
  • Accessories: Birdhouse Template (Papertrey)

Papertrey’s 10th Anniversary, Release Day 5

The challenge today for Papertrey’s 10th Anniversary festivities is to improve on a previous card.  Well since I am a messy crafter and NEVER put stuff away, I still have my Still Life Summer stuff out from some recent crafting.  I decided to improve on this card.  I was originally going easy and focusing on creating a matched card and tag set.  But I wanted to improve on the card so even though the imagery is similar, the card is a bit fancier with more layers and a stamped background.  Hope you like it!  Supplies are listed below.  Happy crafting!

Supplies:

 

  • Cardstock: Hibiscus Burst (Papertrey)
  • Patterned Paper: Still Life Summer (Papertrey)
  • Stamps and Dies: Still Life Summer (Papertrey)
  • Accessories: fun foam; Sherbet Shimmer Glitter Drops (Nuvo)

 

Papertrey’s 10th Anniversary Celebration

I was inspired by Lizzie’s stitched Tic Tac Toe game….too cute!  I liked the primary colors and graphic looks she created with her game and was inspired to make this card.  Supplies are listed below.

Supplies:

  • Cardstock:  Stamper’s Select White (Papertrey); Enchanted Evening (Papertrey); Tracing Paper
  • Ink: Versamark; Pure Poppy (Papertrey); Enchanted Evening (Papertrey); Harvest Gold (Papertrey)
  • Stamps:  Beautiful Brushstrokes Make It Market Kit (Papertrey)
  • Accessories: Clear embossing powder (Stampendous)

Papertrey’s 10th Anniversary: Packaging

Papertrey’s challenge it to create some pretty packaging….for me that means a tag.  I’m so not good about dressing up a package.  I’m typically just trying to get out the door with the package and not forgetting it on the kitchen counter.  I still had my Still Life Summer stamps and dies out so decided to make a tag to match a card.  It’s such a fun set and it’s nice to have a card and tag ready to go for once.  Supplies are listed below.

Supplies:

  • Cardstock:  Stamper’s Select White (Papertrey)
  • Patterned Paper: Still Life Summer (Papertrey)
  • Stamps and Dies: Still Life Summer (Papertrey)
  • Accessories: Wink of Stella, black twine, fun foam

  • Cardstock:  Stamper’s Select White (Papertrey); Pure Poppy (Papertrey)
