Papertrey Ink Blog Hop


It's blog hop time at Papertrey Ink, and this month there was this delicious photo...
 chock full of inspiration (and yummy things!)


I made two cards for today's hop.  The first features the sweet balloon strings from Everyday Button Bits, stamped on a Button Boutique card.

The paper is from the Fine and Dandy Collection by My Mind's Eye.  I placed the button card on a panel of Harvest Gold cardstock stamped with Polka Dot Basics in Fresh Snow ink.



Added some fun buttons from my stash, a little Aqua Mist border cut with the Pearl Lace Border die from Memory Box, and a Tiny Tags die cut.


....and on to my second card...there's that Baby Button Bits cupcake again!  I am pretty that sure I used it on the last hop that I participated in!  I just love it, and think it is my most-used PTI stamp...


Paper-pieced the cupcake with gingham paper from Lily Bee Design and some white cardstock embossed with a Sizzix folder.


I'm always looking for different things to put on top!  This time it's a butterfly on PTI's Linen Vellum cut with a die from A Muse Studio.

I think we will be feeling very sunny after all of the stops at the hop today!
Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today!

I wish my comments could be as cute and funny as yours always are Kelly, but these two cards today are getting pinned immediately! I love button cards and this is the very first I have seen with balloons on them, what a really great idea! I also just love that cupcake and the butterfly on top is such a great idea. You really outdid yourself today, know I say that a lot, but you really did!
