Hi and Welcome to my blog!! I am so excited to be a participant in this month's Papertrey "Blog Hop."
A dear friend of mine recently purchased a new car and, once I heard the news, I knew exactly what stamp set I wanted to use to help her celebrate.
I went to my Papertrey stamp collection and got to work using the "Enjoy the Ride" stamp set. I've loved this set since the moment I saw it released, but have actually waited quite a while before using it. Why? I am not sure, because it is so much fun! It was also a perfect match for this month's theme which is to use a stamp set that has seen little or no ink.
Here's the card I created using lots of Papertrey goodies:
I began with Papertrey's white and kraft cardstock, along with a Spellbinders die cut using Hawaiin Shores cardstock which I embossed with a QuicKutz embossing folder. I also found this really cute patterned paper in my stash, and sorry....I don't know who the manufacturer is....it is something I found on clearance at my local scrapbook store. I paired the patterned paper with Papertrey's Distressed Dots paper and Dotty Biscotti paper.
Other dies I used include the Enjoy the Ride car die, along with the double-ended banner die which I love!! Inks I used include Papertrey's Dark Chocolate and Pure Poppy. Other ink colors include Stampin Up's Gable Green and a Marvy turquoise.
I also paired this card with a scented air freshener for her car from Bath & Body Works.
I hope you enjoyed your visit and be sure to come back soon!!
