Papertrey Blog Hop!!




This is the first time I have participated in the Papertrey Ink Blog Hop. And boy am I excited!!
The challenge was to use transparencies. I just got my PTI order in the mail this week and have been having so much fun creating. Even the smell of the stamps makes me happy!
Here is what I put together:


The card base is made from a transparency sheet. I cut the full card and then glued a piece of PTI Kraft on the right side of the card. I then pulled out the new guidelines set. Stamped lines on both the transparency and the kraft. Then using one of the images in the set I stamped using SU! White craft ink on the transparency and PTI Plum Pudding on the Kraft sheet. I also stamped one bird from Birds of a Feather on the transparency. Attached ribbon and a brad at the top of the patterned image.

I really wanted to have a complete design when you had the card closed and when you opened it you find this;

I stamped the wire and an additional bird, with the words Missing You.  This way the ribbon on the outside hides the sentiment. And when you open the card you get one lonely bird perched on his wire. poor birdie...

 
The second card I did was stamped on the inside with a window of acetate. I really think this one pulled together much better. It feels more finished than the other:
    
Here is the inside. With a birthday wish. Thats it for my hop, can't wait to take a gander at all the others. You can see them all here.

Both of your cards are wonderful. In answer to your question about my card the DP is from PTI and it is the new pack Guidelines.
