PTI Blog Hop

It's the 25th. That means it is Papertrey Blog Hop time. You can check out the PTI forum to get the list of other blogs to hop on over to and to get in on the chat.

So this month the challenge was to use vellum. PTI just came out with two cool new lines of vellum. I of course did not order those vellums on release night. DUH! Honestly I forgot, I was half asleep. I had some stuff laying around though and will have to order the new stuff from PTI later.

Here is what I came up with. Very simple. I used Melissa's new set Floral Frenzy. Stamped the sunflower with Summer Sunrise onto the vellum and punched the centers from a piece of the Chocolate Remix paper. I attached the vellum with some 3-D dots under the flower centers. I added a bit of vellum adhesive to the corners just so they would not flip up.

The stem and leaves were stamped onto the card base, made from Lemon Tart. I did the fold on the 4 1/4" side of this card for something a little different. The sentiment was stamped with Burnt Umber/Dark Chocolate (depending on the version you have).
That is it. Super simple but I love it. It is easy to make a cute card with you have such a great set of stamps to use.

Make sure to check out all of the other blogs in the hop.

Oh wow...I've been so busy that I didn't get a chance to look at all the blog hop entries, but yours really caught my eye. I love the way you ran your vellum across with those awesome flowers. Floral Frenzy is a favorite of mine, and you did a fantastic job with it AND with the blog hop.
