PTI Blog Hop

I forgot about the Papertrey Ink monthly blog hop until last night, so I whipped up this little card after volunteering in the box office this afternoon. I'd still be tweaking it if there wasn't a deadline. I'm not 100% satisfied with it. But hey, my kids think it's cute anyway! :)

Here's the inspiration photo for the blog hop. I liked the pieced pattern look of the pumpkins, so I used three different patterned papers to make the pumpkin on my card. I also used an embossing folder to add swirly texture and then added polka dots like in the photo.

Stamps: Halloween Treats & Sweets, Polka Dot Basics (Papertrey Ink); Perky Upper (My Sentiments Exactly)
Paper: White, Orange Zest, Dark Chocolate, New Leaf (Papertrey Ink); patterned (KI Memories)
Ink: True Black, Orange Zest, Dark Chocolate (Papertrey Ink); VersaMark Dazzle Frost
Dies: Ribbon Tags Trio, Classic Ovals (Spellbinders); Vintage (Cuttlebug)
Misc: D'vine Swirl embossing folder (Cuttlebug); brown gingham ribbon

My daughter Emily likes to craft with me and was excited to try out my new Favor It Box 6 die from Papertrey Ink. She made a white cat treat bag with just a little help with the assembly. She also made her own card and has been asking me for several days to post them on my blog, so here they are! :)

Stamps: Halloween Treats & Sweets (Papertrey Ink); Tinkerbella (Stamping Bella); Ghost (A Muse)
Paper: Harvest Gold (Papertrey Ink); patterned (unknown)
Ink: black
Misc: Classic Oval die (Spellbinders); Favor It Box 6 die
, Mega Halloween Treats & Sweets die (Papertrey Ink)
