Papertey Ink April Blog Hop!



It's that time again! Time for the Papertey Ink monthly blog hop.

This month's blog hop is dedicated to all the boys and men in our lives! Now's your chance to create Father's Day projects, boy birthday cards and more to build up your stash! Focus on masculine color schemes, fresh pattern combinations, understated embellishments and unique uses of images you may already have in your stash!

I chose to make an I Love You card for my dear sweet husband. I used PTI's new Boy Basics: Out Of This World stamp set. While this is sort of a sappy card, it's still for a man, and is done in a manly color scheme, so I think it qualifies :)







Supplies (all PTI unless noted):
Stamps: Boy Basics: Out of this World, Dot Spot, Tiny Treat: Valentine, Little Bitty Bird
Paper: Pure Poppy, Soft Stone
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Versamark
Other: Rocket Die, Sakura Stardust Pen, Pop Dots, Copic Markers

Beautiful! What a cute sentiment and the combo of sets. :)

Vannessa said...

What a great idea of using this set for a love card instead of a boy's birthday!

Cathy Weber said...

That was my idea too, I love you in front of that sentiment. You even thought of more to make it better, those trail of hearts are so great with this. Doesn't seem like a kids card at all anymore. Great ideas Audrey.

Stephanie said...
