PTI Blog Hop Day Color Challenge

Six, yes 6 different choices for the color challenge makes me crazy.   I had a hard time making one card.   Oh the decisions.   In fact I made one card first and hated it and then this little project came to mind today the day of the hop.   I had a very sweet friend drop off some delicious, gooey, fudgy BROWNIES last Sunday night.   So I am dropping off this little thank you.   The polka dot bags are found in my shop and starting next week I will be tying off that bag with SOLID TWINE.   Can't wait for that to come in.   The cheery tomatoes are from my garden.  I am picking about dozen a day and they are soooooooo good.   I have missed home grown tomatoes for to long.   I think the jar stamp is the best stamp and it is one of my PTI favorites.   The background paper is Canyon Clay.  Here is the final color choice.

A bit of patchwork paper piecing and dress up your chocolate

First so glad to see many of you taking advantage of the washi tape discount code.   In case this is the first you are seeing it the code is washifan and it ends Saturday.   Just another way to use that washi tape.   Dress up your chocolate!   This is a jar from a friend who brought back some Giradelli's from San Fran.   YUMMY but I was looking for something to cover and saw the great navy blue label and knew I had the perfect washi tape for the jar lid.   Added a bit of tape to the tag and yummy looks pretty now.

Next is my PTI weekly challenge project.   Paper piecing with Melissa, check out here video here    I struggled to find the right stamp and then I had some beachy paper scraps sitting on my desk so here is my card.   Again there is some washi tap here and I just love blue and orange together.  The pattern paper, die cuts, and Wish Big stamp are all PTI.   Thanks for dropping by.

Spotlight on washi tape

Since there is a sale over in the shop on washi tape I thought I would share an idea here and there on washi tape.   These are a couple of my current candles from Bath and Body Works.   These are perfectly round and clear so I "dressed" them up with a bit of washi tape.

A little PTI challenge and a hidden code.....

I don't have many of you who follow my blog right now but I have loads of new ideas for the summer to share.   So lets get to the good stuff.   psssssssssssssst   here is a code for a discount on washi tape good through Saturday the 25th on all washi tape in the shop.   30% off.   The code is washifan.   So try out the code.   I have never done one before like this.

Now for my card.   The challenge was to add texture to your stamping with a comb.    I did up a birthday card and yes it has washi tape on it and yes I used my new favorite birthday stamp.  

Next week more washi projects!
