Papertrey Ink September Blog Hop!



I am very excited to be participating in my FIRST Papertrey Ink Blog Hop!  The theme for September was to recycle part of the PTI packaging used to get the stamps to your house.  I chose the tissue paper that each stamp set is lovingly wrapped in, and did the Faux Silk Technique which I am currently obsessed with!  Nichole did the BEST tutorial on her own blog awhile ago, which can be found here:

Faux Silk Technique by Nichole Heady



Supply List:
Stamps:  PTI Guide Lines I, sentiment from PTI Vintage Picnic Baskets, Linen bg (retired SU)
Cardstock:  all PTI white, black, Summer Sunrise, kraft
Other:  tissue paper, glue stick, black and orange rhinestones, Tim Holtz distress inks, Diamond Stickles, Scor-It Board (also did grid technique on pumpkin piece), twine, scalloped edge scissors, circle punch, gingham ribbon, sponge daubers, sandpaper to distress edges

Happy Harvest to you all!  Thanks so much for stopping by!
