Papertrey Ink Blog Hop

Hi there dear friends.  Looks like I'm a day late, but I did have fun with this month's PTI Challenge.  Sigh, some days are just like that!  Oh well, I'm just happy to be crafting again!!  Whooo hoooo!  It just feels good!!

Here was the challenge:
{photo credits} manicure ::: stripes ::: invitation ::: 845 ::: sunburst ::: make it happen ::: glitter envelopes ::: pillows
If you take a close look at the trends in fashion, home decor and even paper crafting, a touch of gold can be found turning the ordinary into something fabulous.  Here's your chance to apply this trend to your very own style!  The challenge is to add a touch of gold to a paper crafted project.  This could be done with gold embossing powder, gold shimmer cardstock, gold glitter, gold metallic pigment powders,  gold metallic pen, gold sequins, gold floss or thread or even gold leaf.  You could even raid your beauty stash and try adapting gold fingernail polish or gold eye shadow to your needs!  We are looking forward to seeing all of your amazing projects!

and here's my take on the challenge:

I had to use my new PTI Back To School Stamps for this challenge!  I stamped the A+ with Versamark Ink and embossed it with Ultra Fine Gold Embossing Powder and then I fussy cut it out.  I layered the embossed A onto a Stamped Label and added stamped apple and pennant to the embellishment cluster.  Finally, I added some stars die cut with the Star Border Die.
The paper I used is from Glitz Design.  Love, love, love the black chevron pattern!!

Supplies Used:
PTI Back To School Stamps
PTI Super Star Borders Die
PTI Label Basics
PTI Pure Poppy Ink
PTI Leaf Green Ink
PTI Stamper's Select White Cardstock
PTI Gold Shimmer Cardstock

I also made a wedding card with the same challenge in mind:

I used the Man and Wife dies and the Bigger Blooms stamps and dies.  Love the man and wife dies!  They're so perfect for wedding tags and cards and they're so elegant!!
Thanks for stopping by even though I missed the challenge!  I'll see you again soon!!
