Papertrey Ink March 2015 Blop Hop & MIM #206

I'm slowly getting back into my craft room after a fun vacation.
I'm looking forward to playing with my paper and ink!!

I loved this month's inspiration photo for 
Papertrey Ink's Blog Hop: Aqua and Yellow ... 
Blog inspiration
... but I was also intrigued  by Danielle Flander's  
Make It Monday video: Stamping  and Mixing Patterns ....
so I combined the two challenges to make a baby card!!

I started by cutting the Cover Plate: Comic Strip die 
from Aqua Mist and Stamper's Select White card stock.
The aqua frame was glued to a white card base.
Using the tips and techniques from this week's MIM, 
several stamp sets and ink colours were chosen to 
stamp patterns onto the 5 white card stock pieces.
I used Aqua Mist and Lemon Tart inks, with an accent 
of Spring Moss on the Polka Dot panel.

Top Left Panel - Birthday Style, Polka Dot Basics
Top Right Panel  - SAF 2014: 1940's; Bitty Background Blocks;
Buttoned-Up  #2 die;  Coaster Board; aqua embroidery floss



Center Panel  - Background Basics: Gingham 
Wreath for All Season's (sentiment) - Versafine Onyx Black ink
Block Alphabet Dies - Aqua Mist card stock


Bottom Left Panel  -  Autumn Pattern Pieces
Bottom Right Panel   - Crackled; Friendship Jar Spring Fillers; copic markers
Memento Tuxedo Black ink; Versafine Onyx Black ink; Tropical Teal ink


Thanks for visiting today. Enjoy the Blog Hop.
