Papertrey Ink January Blog Hop!

It's been a couple of months since I actually got a project finished, to take part in the PTI Blog Hop!  YAY, ME!  :)  Here is the challenge for this month's hop: "This month's blog hop challenge involves you challenging yourself to use a Papertrey stamp set that has yet to see ink or even one that might be collecting a little dust! Go through your stash and see what little used treasure it might hold."  What a great challenge, Nichole!  I definitely have some sets that have not seen the love that they deserve!  So here is my card:


I have had Out on a Limb in my stash for MONTHS, but had yet to ink it up!  What a great, versatile set.  I'm sure to reach for it more often now!  And Wise Owl was one of the first PTI sets that I purchased!  I have used it before, but not in a while - so it was definitely in the "collecting dust" category.  :)  So unfair, as that little owl is just THE CUTEST, isn't he?  I stamped and colored him separately and cut him out, then popped him up on the card base.


Also used here the Polka Dot impression plate (love it!!) and the Banner Builder set.  Also loooooving my new Lacey Circles nesties that I got for Christmas!    PTI colors are Blueberry Sky, Summer Sunrise (love that color, and even it is underused from my stash!!) and Simply Chartruese.

Click the Blog Hop logo below to go to the link page on Nichole's blog, for an AMAZING amount of PTI inspiration! You can link up your own creation for the hop up until 11:00pm tonight, January 25, for a chance to win your choice of a PTI stamp set!



Thanks for looking, and enjoy the hop!

OH SO CUTE!!! I am a bit shocked though that you did not work black and gold into this card :) or some red blue and yellow with a funky diamond shape as the background :) Love that owl and LOVE THOSE STEELERS!!!!

Lots of great ideas on your card. I especially like the polka dot impression plate - now I want that too!! The owl is adorable - I like how you 'popped' him up on the branch.

Love this little gem! And you know what I love most??? The green used around the edge of your base card. I only think of using the chai or brown......Why haven't I thought to add some color to match??? I will now! Thanks for the inspiration!
