Papertrey January Blog Hop Challenge

This is the challenge:

With the new year comes a clean slate along with many resolutions.  This month's blog hop challenge involves you challenging yourself to use a Papertrey stamp set that has yet to see ink or even one that might be collecting a little dust!  Go through your stash and see what little used treasure it might hold. 



I bought "Every day Button Bits" with intentions of making LOTS of cards for all occasions because the set is so versatile!! And it is, I just got lazy and forgot it for a while. Hey, it happens... So for today's challenge I chose this flower image and sentiment that have never seen ink!


I used a new Nestabilities die to kind of "frame" the image and highlight the green stems and leaves. The image was matted with Pure Poppy cardstock, and the green is Bazzill (I think it's Parakeet??) that coordinated with "Landscape" Palette ink used to stamp the greenery. I borrowed my husbands embroidery floss to thread the buttons and adhered them with Glossy Accents.

Thank you for stopping by! I look forward to browsing all of the wonderful blog hop creations throughout the day! Here's a link to the Blog Hop post so you can check it out if you want!!
