PTI August Blog Hop

This is the inspiration photo for the August PTI Blog Hop. I just loved the vintage suitcase with the Damask lining, the books, and the pretty pink flowers. Here is what I came up with:

Stamps: All booked up, PTI; linen background, SU!; Fleur de Lis, Stampabilities.

Ink: old olive, SU!; london fog, rose bud, tuxedo black, Memento

Paper: ivory, and old olive, SU!; Hibiscus burst, PTI

Embellishments: twill tape , JoAnn Fabrics.

Image colored with Copic markers.

Let me know what you think. Have fun getting inspirations from everyone participating.

Here is my custom ribbon (wanted it to mimic the ribbon around the jar). I stamped Fleur de Lis, Stampabilities.


  1. Love how you inked the embossed background to really make it stand out. Great colors!

  2. Lovely. ;-) I like the colors and textures you brought in. Very nice. ;-)

  3. Very pretty with the flowers in the vase. I like the book quote too.

  4. Love that your used the book stamp set. Very pretty.

  5. This is such a pretty card! I love your custom stamped ribbon. I'm so glad you got to join the blog hop. I ran out of time. I shouldn't even be here looking at these:)

  6. Great job on the ribbon! I like that you focused on the book idea. Very nice. :)

  7. NIIICCCEEE! That background is perfect to represent the inside of the suitcase! You have a great eye for cardmaking :)
