PTI September Blog Hop


So this month's PTI blog hop is pretty fun!  When I saw the theme at the last release, I sat down the next day and whipped these up!  I love this strip trend which you can find all over Pinterest right now!  Here is a gorgeous picture of a striped wall to pull inspiration from...


And here is the challenge straight from the PTI site...

Look closely and there are so many directions to go in! You can choose to focus on the colors, the stripes, or the repetition.

I kinda sorta went a little stripe crazy, so bare with me!  :)

Here is my first striped card...

I love these multicolored stripes!  I cut lots of 1/2" strips and went to town!

And my second...

This uses more of those same strips!  I ATG'd them all to the card base and then used Versamark to stamp the Turning a New Leaf image on the face.

And this is the last, I promise...

I had to throw a boy card in the mix!  I thought the stripes were perfect for a little blast off!

All of the cards use PTI's Pure Poppy, Aqua Mist, True Black and Stampers Select White!  I love this color combo!!  

Go over and check out Nichole's blog for a full list of blog hop links!  I can't wait to see all the striped cards and projects!

I have been MIA lately as I just got back from a trip to KC!  I got to meet up with Amy and Jinny, and we got to meet Lynn for the first time!  We had a blast just talking and laughing about this amazing hobby we all have in common!  We did spend a little time eating Cheesecake too, at the Cheesecake Factory on the Plaza!  Yummo!!  I have pictures to share but I don't have much time....soon to be on my way out the door again!  I have another trip this week!  This time I get to meet Michele, Laura, Lisa and Tenia at Archivers for some inky fun!  I can't wait!!  AND the real reason for my trip is to meet my brand new niece, Henley!!  I can't wait to get on the road!

Thank you for coming by today!  When I get back, I want to get all caught up with my blog friends and see what you have been up to!  Have a great Sunday!
