Papertrey Ink September Blog Hop


Hello friends!  It's time for another Papertrey Ink Blog Hop, and I'm happy to have found time to play.  The challenge this month is to be inspired by a photo of this fun and colorful striped floor:



I pulled out the colors Pure Poppy, Summer Sunrise, Smokey Shadow, and Hawaiian Shores from the stripes in the photo.  I cut strips of cardstock and debossed them with the Cane Print impression plate, then adhered them to a white panel.

I attached a strip of white twill across the bottom and stamped a sentiment above it, from Faux Ribbon.  Finally, I added a trio of Hibiscus Burst buttons threaded with black floss.

All supplies from Papertrey Ink unless noted
Cardstock:  White, Pure Poppy, Summer Sunrise, Smokey Shadow, Hawaiian Shores
Stamps:  Faux Ribbon
Ink:  Black (Inkadinkadoo)
Tools:  Cane Print impression plate
Accessories:  Hibiscus Burst buttons, twill ribbon (A.C. Moore), DMC floss

Thanks for stopping by today, and happy hopping!
