I thought I would not be able to make it for the hop this month. That was because last night our water main broke and it was a disaster. Water everywhere and the engineer was not able to fix it. We just had to shut the water mains off and pack and move to a hotel nearby. Never thought we will holiday in the same town we live in! Anyway, its all fixed now and we are back home and I was able to schedule this post.
” One of the most fun things about this hobby is the people you meet, whether in person or online, and the things you can learn from them. Now is your chance to show off any skills you might have learned from a fellow stamper, and perhaps even give them a little shout out to thank them for the inspiration they have provided. Create a project using one of your favorite learned skills and perhaps after a little blog hopping, we will ALL learn some new tips and tricks and continue to pass on the love of this hobby! “
Well, I have been stalking and admiring Sarah Martina Parker’s blog — Designs by Sarah Martina
for a very very long time. Love how she does shabby style cards. Just so pretty! “Your style is so so pretty, Sarah Martina! I particularly love the distressed and inked edges, layering stamped images and embellishments. Your work inspires me a lot”. I have tried use her techniques and given a go for this month’s PTI blog hop. Here is what I came up with…
I have used PTI’s Cream cardstock as the base. The red vellum paper is from Webster Pages and the green paper is from Basic Grey, which are stamped with PTI Text Style II stamps and flutterby Friends, distressed and inked the edges and layered with lace, bakers twine, rhinestones and butterflies. This is a card inspired by Sarah Martina Parker! Hope I have done justice…..
Now off to hop and see everybody’s project. I think its going to be interesting to see all the projects this month as the theme for this month can be interpreted in many many ways.
Happy Hopping and Have fun 🙂
