PTI Blog Hop

Morning everybody,



I am very happy to play along the New Year blog hop with PTI. This month's theme is

With the new year comes a clean slate along with many resolutions.  This month's blog hop challenge
involves you challenging yourself to use a Papertrey stamp set that has yet to see ink or even one that
might be collecting a little dust!  Go through your stash and see what little used treasure it might hold.  If
you are in need of inspiration for your chosen set, feel free to utilize the gallery posted in the side bar of
each set's sale page on our website, or go to the
Previous Countdown page on Nichole's blog where
each set is organized by month of release.  2011 is the year where what's old is new again!


 I do have many stamp sets where I have used only one or two stamps and a few sets that haven't seen ink at all. So this is a great chance to get them inked. Banner stamp set is one of them. So I decided to use it along with the coordinating dies. 
Here is my first card.


The second one is using "In Bloom" stamp set, die and impression plate.


I love "In Bloom" set. Its my most favourite of all stamps from PTI because the stamps has coordinating dies, impression plate and the pattern paper. Its a complete set. Can't wait to collect more set like this.

I am off to hop and see other projects. Happy Hopping :)


Luv!
