PTI January Blog Hop















Today is the January PTI Blog Hop.  Our challenge this month was to use a stamp set that has never been used.  Since I have used some of every set of stamps I have, I used
a little creative license and made a type of card that was new to me.  This is my first "Shaped" card and I used a free svg file from
Maria Bell.  Here is a link if you want to check it out.   http://stampininspirations.blogspot.com/2010/04/little-cs-new-relese-cc-design-stamps.html
I think the cupcake file is just adorable and I used lots of PTI supplies to make my card.  My favorite element is the Sunshine impression plate I used for the frosting part of the cupcake.  Those swirls are just perfect to imitate icing.  Niki Estes made a cute cupcake card recently that inspired one of the elements on this card.  Here is a link to her card: http://nikiestes.typepad.com/my_paper_creations/2011/01/birthday-cards-tags.html.  I love the circle/pinked circle with the big Number One on it.  This card is for a sweet little girl who turns one next week and I used Background Basics Tin Type on both the rickrac and the number (don't know why I don't use this more often). The raspberry fizz circle has Background Basics Sheet Music stamped on it with Versamark.  I scored the back of the cupcake liner with my ScorBug which gives a really nice texture on the "right" side of the patterned paper.  I added a bit of prisma glitter to the edges of the cupcake liner.  I can hardly wait to give this card to sweet little Leah.  Thanks for taking a look at my project.
