PTI July Blog Hop

This month's challenge was to incorporate Text into your project. I love PTI's stamp set Background Basics: Text Style. Love it! It's great for card making, scrapbooking and making little gifts like I did today.

I have a very sweet and dear friend who has spoiled me by sending surprises in the mail. So now it's my turn. I stamped the Background Text in Summer Sunrise onto the labels that PTI sells to fit the Hershey's nuggets. I wrapped the nuggets and put them into a clear case that I recently got from a PTI stamp set that I purchased.

I then used the same stamp but with Versamark ink to make a nice subtle watercolor mark on the Green Leaf Cardstock. I adhered some gorgeous Lemon Tart Bitty Dots paper onto that. I had used some Summer Sunrise and a sponge to ink the sides up a bit for dimension. I cut out my Top Note die in Aqua Mist and again used Versamark with the same stamp for a nice background.

To the Top Note die I added some pretty satin ribbon to the corners. Then I stamped a flower image from Beautiful Blooms onto Summer Sunrise with Versafine Sepia and then heat embossed with clear EP. I mounted it with a gorgeous Rustic Wood and a Lemon Tart button that my friend had sent me {along with about a hundred other buttons!} I threaded some twine through them and the sentiment that I had stamped onto some Spring Moss Bitty Dot Patterned Paper.

I sure hope she likes it. Thanks for looking and have fun hopping!!!

  15. Your treat bag looks good in more than one way. The text is so subtle on the label that you don't even realize its there. Its a great contrast to the text candy wraps. Great job.
