Papertrey Ink January Blog Hop!



So hard to believe that January is nearly over already! That means it's time for the PTI montly blog hop. This month, the challenge was:

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.

I have just a few stamp sets that are uninked or underused, so I decided to other PTI products that I have neglected as well :) For my stamp sets, I chose Star Prints, which was one of my very first PTI sets, and Dot Spot, which I just purchased second hand, but had yet to ink up. Finally, I used the Seeing Stars die collection, which I have had for some time, and only used once. Here is my card, with a finished size of 4"x4".



Supplies (all PTI unless noted):
Stamps: Star Prints, Dot Spot
Ink: Enchanted Evening, Hawaiian Shores, Pure Poppy
Paper: Stampers Select White
Other: Seeing Stars dies, Prisma Glitter, pop dots

I love these two sets together. The Dot Spot really highlights the Star image and they give you lots of options for combining colours. Great job.
