Papertrey Blog Hop August

It's blog hop day at Papertrey and there are a selection of colour and sketch combos to choose from - I was drawn to this blueberry number. and this is what I did with it.

I die cut a circle of blue card and used the inner area of the die to draw white lines around the edge.  I used one of the roses from the sweet life set and stamped it with 2 blues and a plum (as close as I could get to the prescribed colours) and used the die cut to cut it out.   I added some die cut leaves (Wplus9) and some blue gems.  I finished with some more hand drawn stitch lines and a large sentiment stamped in plum.

Happy Hopping!


  1. I just LOVE your rose stamp Tara, beautifully stamped in that pretty colour, too. Fab job with your faux stitching, too. Gorgeous card! x

  2. Man, Tara, you are the Queen of the hand-drawn stitches! They are perfect! I also love that you used the dark blue for your circle with those fabulous flowers!!

  3. Lovely - the gems & white stitching are terrific details!

  4. Lovely card! Great take on the colour combo and sketch!
