PTI Paper Dolls Blog Hop






Hi! Welcome to the PTI Paper Dolls Blog Hop!! You should be coming to my blog from Renee.
If you are a "regular" to my blog and would like to join in the hop (there are details on our main blog site here) then start with Jen. There ARE prizes involved including a stamp set AND a gift certificate so make sure you read the details!! :-)

Now... on to the "hop":
"PTI" is the theme. Please include something on our project that starts with a "P", something that starts with a "T" and something that starts with an "I".

The "P" in my project is "Plum Pudding" (cardstock), "T" is "Turning a New Leaf" stamp set and twine (wrapped around and tied in a bow), and the "I" is ink... and lots of of it! I used Versamark ink, Plum Pudding ink, and Simply Chartreuse ink.

We are using the blog hop to get to know our Paper Doll "blog sisters" a bit better so here you can learn more about me:

I love green and your card is so green!!! Love all things PTI myself and all you Dolls have showcased some fabulous stamps, dies, paper that I NEED now. Nice to meet you Kristin:)

Laura Isham said...

Love your color combo! I am definitely going to have to try it soon! And, I {heart} the focal image with Turning a New Leaf and the twine. I don't have Turning a New Leaf yet, but a couple of you ladies have totally inspired me. I think I'll wait until the die gets released since it looks like a lot of work to cut it out by hand. ;)

Jessica Wekenman said...

I love the colors you chose and the leaf stems cut out and frameing your focal point! I also love the way you wrapped the twine! Very Beautiful card!

Otter Hill Designs said...

I love your leaves. It makes me want to buy TANL even more. Gorgeous color scheme. And I love, love, love the layers.

leish said...

this is a beautiful card! And, yup, it pushed me over the edge in wanting Turning a new leaf. Oh, I just read deena's comment, maybe I'll wait until she gets it. hehheh.

I love the colors and the subtly of the background is beautiful!

Sheetal Ahlawat said...

Beautiful card!

Suzanne said...

Kristin, I love your card. It has such an earthy feel to it - I don't know how you managed to cut out those leaves! They look great!!! And I like that shade of green with the purple. Beautiful.

Helen F. said...

You all have showcased some fabulous PTI stamps, dies, paper. I now want everything I have seen on this Hop! Love your card and those beautiful "Turning a New Leaf" stamps and dies,Kristin :o)

Sara Mac said...

Beautiful card Kristin! Love the pop of purple with the die cut. The leaves stamped in the bg are a great touch. It's been great getting to know you better. I think that makes three Dolls in TX now.

christy compton hall said...

Beautiful, Kristin! That's a gorgeous background paper you created to match the leaf diecuts. Is that scalloped rectangle mat in kraft? It's a perfect addition.

Lots of dolls from Texas and Hawaii - how fun is that!!

Jen said...

Pretty. Love the leaves climbing gracefully around the focal point. Fab colors too. Great job, fantastic card!

Diane Jaquay said...

Love the "natural" feel of this card, with the leaves and Kraft and twine, so very pretty!

Sara P said...

I really like how you've used the sentiment for the focal point. So much texture and layers to this card. love it!

Natalie said...

Gorgeous card! I just recently purchased Turning a New Leaf and it's such a great set. TFS! :)

Your card is beautiful! I love all the "nature" elements in it. The twine around the card just brings it all together. Definitely love the color combo. So nice to learn a bit more about you. Glad to have you as part of the Dolls.

Love your card so much! So warm and comforting!

Anne B said...

Love your card, kristin. Gorgeous colour combo and Turning a New Leaf is one of my favourites too :)

Kathy Mc said...

What a fun blog hop! You "dolls" know how to showcase PTI product and encourage the rest of us to add more to our wish lists. Love your TANL background and cut-outs with your sentiment as the focal image. Great choice of colors also!

Isabel Z said...

Oh my, these are absolutely stunning--all of the creations that I am seeing on your blogs. I just discovered the Paper Dolls and am so excited that I have added all of you to my favorites for inspiration. Thank you!

Amy said...

Kristin, I'm so glad you joined the "dolls" this past month! I enjoyed getting to know you and sounds like you are a busy little bee! I love your leaf cutouts and have never done that yet but I love the results. I am patiently waiting for PTI dies for this set like no other. I've been recently looking at other leaf dies...:( Come on PTI! Sounds like we might be around the same age, married around the same time, and have kids with similar ages! :)

Amy said...

Oh yeah, I forgot to add.....Beautiful color combination! MY FAVORITE!! :)

Katie Skiff said...

That is beautiful... So simple, clean and elegant!!

Love the look of this card! Color choice is great!!

Jill said...

Ooh, this is getting to be a favorite color combo with the new Royal Velvet color! I like how you stamped your own background paper, and really highlighted your sentiment with layers & embellishments!

Eva said...

Love your double leaves and how you wrapped the card with twine.

Cathy Weber said...

Oh boy, there are those gorgeous Turning a New leaf leaves all cut out by hand. I love your card, bet you were wishing you had that die they are releasing this month! Great take on the challenge, the leaves are my favorite part.

Rochelle said...
