Tilted with Paper Trey Ink!! =)

Pin It

Hello!!
It's almost Friday!! Can't believe how FAST this week has flown by!! I was looking at the calendar today and my 6 yr. old only has four more weeks of school left and he has made it through his Kindergarten Year!! So SAD that it has gone by so FAST, but SO PROUD of him for all he has accomplished and learned this year!! Can't believe he will be a First Grader already!!

 Anyway, today I was able to play along with the FUN Monthly Blog Hop over on The Paper Trey Ink Blog!! This month the challenge was to Create something with a Tilted Design!! Just look at all of these EXAMPLES!! =)

Blog-hop-inspiration

I just got my NEW Products from the April Release in the mail at 2:00pm this afternoon and I knew I wanted to use the Seventh Inning Stretch Stamp Set and matching Dies!! I also wanted to use the New Stars Dies!! I just LOVE stars and these babies are so mini and sweet!! =)
I was inspired by some of the cards that were created by the Design Team during the release that were created for girls using this stamp set and with my niece just tried out for her first traveling softball team and made it, so I wanted to make this for her!!
I used some mini text paper from the Simple Stories Vintage Bliss 6X6 paper pad and cut it at an angle to match the card base!! I then die cut three balls, one glove and two bats!! I created my main design on the tilt and then used some of the PTI Felt and die cut the star buttons border only I decided to keep the button holes in because I didn't like them as buttons for this card!! Just another way you can use this die!! LOVE when you can use them for different uses!! I stamped two of the sentiments from the set in Kraft Ink and I LOVE the subtle look!! I wanted to give alittle life to the die cuts so I bent the glove to make it look like a real glove with a ball in it!! I rounded the edges of the balls and the bats in the same way and added alittle bit of 3-D foam squares for added depth!! I inked around the edges of everything and I LOVE the way it turned out!! Here are some pictures of my finished card!!



THANKS for stopping by and I hope you'll go and check out all of the AMAZING INSPIRATION over on the Paper Trey Ink Blog!! Have a FABULOUS WEEKEND!! =)

This card is great! My favorite of all the blog hop cards I've looked at so far! What did you do to the mitt? It looks like real leather in the picture. Did you just stamp in brown ink, or did you color with copics? It looks fabulous!
