Welcome to the June Blog Hop with Papertrey Ink. This month we were supposed to come up with our favorite PTI color combo. I chose white, melon berry, spring moss, simply chartreuse (felt), and dark chocolate.

What woman would not like a little chocolate with anything? I loved these colors together. This was a fun challenge. I made two different cards utilizing the same color scheme.

I used my new hodgepodge paper pack. Specifically the Everyday blessings and Pink patterns. I also used the simply chartreuse felt for two of the leaves and the Spring mix buttons (melon berry, spring moss) and dark chocolate buttons. I punched flowers out of the papers. I also used my absolute favorite stamp set, Everyday button bits. I received all my goodies the day after the last blog hop and finally got to use everything. Below you will find a close up pick of the flowers and the details.


I used pop dots to pop up the flowers. I cut the felt with my paper cutter and large scallop blade. Wowie, the felt cuts so beautifully with whatever (paper cutter, scissors, die cutting machine ect...). Please leave a comment and let me know what you think. Have fun being inspired.



I chose the same color scheme as above: white, melon berry, spring moss, simply chartreuse (felt), dark chocolate, with a touch of aqua mist. This card was inspired by a sweet baby outfit. I hand sewn the apple onto a scallop square. I used PTI simply chartreuse felt for the inside of the leaf and label. I used brown flock for inside of stem. I used PTI Everyday blessings , Pink patterns and chocolate remix dp, and melon berry, spring moss, and dark chocolate buttons. See below the close up pic for details. I popped up the flowers and added coordinating colored string (for making friendship bracelets) in centers of buttons.





Close up view of details of apple. I hope you have a great time at the hop. I would love for you to leave me a comment.
