Papertrey Ink Blog Hop!



Oh wow! I haven't been able to participate the last couple of months in Papertrey Ink's blog hops but this month I found a couple of minutes to make my card - and when CASING is the theme.....well, it just makes it that much easier don't you think?!!

I cased my card from this card of Betsy Veldman's - I've provided the link and the actually photo for you....absolutely LOVE her creations and her work is just all around so pretty and detail-ish!!

BETSY"S CARD



I used Baby Button Bits to make my card and used the very same layout and everything - just changed up the stamp set and papers.... I'm pretty lazy that way! lol!

MY CARD


I didn't use my copics to shadow the image, because frankly I figured I would probably mess it up. I am taking a  copic class in another couple of weeks with Linda Heavens and am planning on learning that technique at the class.(okay Linda?! lol!)

Instead of using  Background Basics Text Style I got out my Background Basics Retro, which I think was a good fit for this card and designer paper.

I did use my sewing machine but discovered (dang it!) that it had my beige thread in instead of my white thread which would have made for a far better finish....ah well....such is cardmaking....

Thanks for popping around tonight!!

Stamps: Baby Button Bits, Background Basic Retro (Papertrey Ink)
Paper: Orange Zest, Vintage Cream (Papertrey Ink); Garden Variety (Cosmo Cricket)
Ink: New Leaf (Papertrey Ink)
Accents: Orange Zest ribbon, New Leaf button, twine (Papertrey Ink), foam tape (Taylored Expressions), Martha Stewart edge punch, my funky sewing machine

  13. I have not used that delightful pea pod yet, what is wrong with me! I LOVE your card with those colors and the background basic retro "stripe"...a cheery down on the farm kinda card, Bonnie! (or is it "out in the garden" kinda card?) HEE!

  22. wow Bonnie. Your card is great. The colors, the stitching (who can tell it's beige?), the adorable pea pod stamp (Why did I think I could do without that set?), even the fun PP!
    All around winner in my book for sure!
