september 2011 blog hop challenge


It's time for another Papertrey Ink Blog Hop Challenge!!  The Challenge: We have another amazing inspirational photo for you this month that we just know will bring out the very best in your creativity! Look closely and there are so many directions to go in! You can choose to focus on the colors, the stripes, or the repetition. We look forward to seeing your creations!

I loved the stripes and colors in the photo inspiration!! I also loved the simplicity of this even though the pattern may come off as busy! Keeping to a few different colors and the same size stripes really is pretty simplistic if you ask me. Here's what I came up with using the photo above as the inspiration...



I used Background Basics: Chevron Stripes to create the colored stripes. I used a different chevron stamp and ink color to build the background. Then I die cut some felt and used the frame from Tag-its #5 along with a sentiment from Fillable Frames Additions #1. The inks are a mix of Jenni Bowlin for Ranger (Weather Vane, Lemon Drop, and Chicken Feed), Stamping Up! (Real Red, Regal Rose), and Papertrey Ink (Hawaiian Shores). I am loving how this card turned out...and it's not too thick so it will mail easily (always a bonus)!

Have a fantastic blog hop and have a super Sunday!! Thanks for stopping by!!
