PTI June Blog hop

It's funny. I thought school finishing would miraculously give more time for crafting, but it doesn't seem to be working that way. That said, I did allow myself an hour this morning to make a card for this month's blog hop at Papertrey Ink.
The inspiration picture is really lovely - in fact I really want a pair of these shoes.

And here's what I did with it

A card for this weeks Make it Monday challenge at Papertrey Ink
Soft stone and Smoky shadow made up the majority of the stamping, with a few pops of Hawaiian shores.
There are elements from 5 different stamp sets, but the PTI ones are "Fly away", "Bird watching" and "Super gingham"

MIM #213

A bright, summery card for this weeks Make it Monday on a day that's anything but!
I have had this soda bottle stamp for ages (Freshly squeezed stamps' "soda-lighted") and never used it, so this was the perfect challenge to get it inked.

The set doesn't have a stamp for the "filling" so I masked off just inside the edges of the bottle and sponged the ink on - PTI orange zest and canyon clay.
The "poppin' by" sentiment is actually all wavy, but I straightened it out onto the block and you almost can't tell it isn't usually a straight line.
I thought the background (made using PTI Guide lines 2 and a little image from Postmarks) looked like old fashioned kitchen tiles. It's stamped using Aqua mist and Hawaiian shores ink.
