Papertrey Ink July 2012 Blog Hop!


Yay! My new stamps and paper and ink pads came in just in the nick of time! (As in yesterday! :) lol)
Here is the inspiration photo and colors...
I chose to go with a summer theme. There are flowers in there (on some of the hexagons) but I just got the Hello Sunshine stamp set and couldn't wait to use it! :) Here is my interpretation:

 Everything (except the Stamper's Select White card stock and the Summer Sunrise stuff) is brand spankin' new. I just had to play around with it all! I used the Happy Hexagons stamp set for the background pattern and the card base is Rustic Cream. The panel itself is Vintage Cream.
 I used the Mat Stack #4 die and stamp set as well as the Limitless Layers Circles die. The sentiment and little sunburst are from the Hello Sunshine stamp set.
All of the inks I used are listed in the inspiration picture ;)

Thanks for looking! I had a lot of fun making this card. I would love to hear your thoughts so please leave a comment if you wish. 

Blessings: Though it may be part time, I have a job that lets me stay home with my amazing son and pay for my crazy crafting hobby. Plus it's a job that I love because it involves my other passion: teaching dance. ;) Have a wonderful day!
