PaperTrey Ink May Blog Hop



*May Blog Hop Challenge from Nichole Heady...
"I have recently fallen in love with adding score lines as accents to my projects. What I love about this
method of embellishing is that it is quick, easy & matches everything! Your challenge this month is
utilize score lines in a creative way as a decorative accent to any type pf project. I look forward to
seeing all of your results!!!"

Indeed this is a quick and easy way to embellish a project especially when used in combination with CuttleBug Embossing folders. This happens to be my favorite way to use the score lines at this time. On this card the cupcake from "it's A Celebration" was punched out using a 1" circle punch and is mounted inside the card. Next I took a 1 1/4" circle punch to make a window on the front of the card. This is a very quick and easy card style to make...


Below is a Sneak Peak of the GSS "Guest Star Stamper for PaperTrey Ink. project I have completed for this month's challenge of Best Baby Gift. The score lines were used here again to accent the DP strip...

Great card Sara! I know I am early but I have a lot to do later and didn't want to forget about your blog. I really like berry sorbet and kraft together with a little bit of white.

Fantastic Sara! I loved the card and sneak peak!

My favorite color combo at the moment has to be kraft and berry sorbet. Nothing like earthy and bright!

Theresa Tyree said...

I LOVE your triple embossed card, Sara!
How sweet of you to do a RAK. My favorite colors are orange and purple, so naturally my fav PTI color combo is the Summer Sunrise paired with the Lavender Moon. I can't get enough of it!

Lisa Thibault said...

How cute! I love the color combination you've chosen. I think I love all the PTI colors...

Debbie Olson said...

Love the dual textures separated by scored lines!

Lisa H. said...

Your cards are FAB! your making me really like that set. and Blog Candy too, how sweet of you. I love the Lavender moon with the Lemon tart, pair it with the matching ds paper and it's just beautiful!

michelle in mi said...

I love the PTI yellows combo. Fresh and cheerful!

Cheryl said...

Sara, this card is beautiful. You are so creative. The only PTI colors I have are the first ones that were released, but I think I like the combo of the yellows. The lavender this month was pretty too, so not sure I can answer my favorite combo. I love what you put together. I am getting so anxious to get back to stamping. Hopefully in another week or two. Right now I can't stand bent over to stamp and I can't do it sitting. So.... it is a waiting game.
You did a great job.
Cheryl

Lynn Mercurio said...

What a great card. Love the combination of the Cuttlebug folders and your score lines. Great colors too!

Annapurna said...

Very nice! Cute things for the GSS.

Sarah said...

I hadn't ever thought to use 2 embossing folders together. Thanks for the inspiration! My current favorite color combo is aqua mist with spring moss- I've been doing a lot of watery/outdoorsy (is that a word??!) projects lately.

stampinc said...

Love your cards. They are to adorable. Love how the lines separates the embossing. I have to try this. The combo I really like is the one you used on the baby card. Thanks

gretchenhs said...
