July PTI blog hop with May Arts ribbon!


This months PTI blog hop challenge was to use office supplies! I grabbed a tag & got busy!

SU! creamy caramel on PTI polka dots 2, PTI tea inks for the background on the card base (PTI giga guidelines, guidelines 2 & scroll from vintage labels), PTI pure poppy for the red. Tea inks distress all edges. Red embroidery floss... and that crocheted ribbon from May Arts... can you say YUMMO!?!

The crocheted ribbon comes white...

but it is easily transformed with some glimmer mist!

Here's a close-up of that goodness!

And one more to show the dimension/textures....

And here's another quickie tag to hang on a gift bag, or tie on....

Same stamps/ink, but check out that DELICIOUS red scallop trim! Talk about a lot of interest!

Thanks so much for stopping by! I'd love to hear what you think...! Have fun hopping, and stop by the May Arts blog too- one more spot for great inspiration!
