Papertrey May Blog Hop Challenge


Here's the deal - I REALLY don't want to cut into the gorgeous PTI felt!  I want to own it, and I want to hoard it.  It took a lot, but I did cut it for tonight's hop!  The Simply Chartreuse felt arrived on my doorstep yesterday - perfect, I felt for this card (get it, I "felt" it was perfect...hehe)!  Anyway, on to the card and the deets!
First, this card is totally inspired by a card by Kim Moreno in the May/June issue of Paper Crafts magazine.  I loved it's vintage look and thought it was the perfect use of this image and sentiment from Cornish Heritage Farms.  I used PTI Vintage Cream as the card base and for the image.  I used Stampin' Up!'s Soft Suede to layer the image and for the ink.  I used PTI's Journling Lines stamp set, Pure Poppy ink, Simply Chartreuse felt, black twill ribbon, Pure Poppy and Simply Chartreuse buttons, twine and Vintage Touch Tea Dye Duo.  Finally, I used October Afternoon designer paper and a UK Success punch. (Whew, I hope I'm not forgetting anything!) 
Thanks for visiting This Pink Rooster, and I always appreciate it when you leave some love!  Enjoy the rest of the hop - I know I will!

  3. Your card is ADORABLE as can be, Sue -- LOVE it!!! I didn't yet get that new Chartreuse color -- and green is my FAV color!!! I WANT it, but don't think I'll ask you to send me some of yours -- LOL!!! I'm giggling because I 'felt' the same way about the first 5 colors I got just before the new release, but I have cut into it. Trying to use, not hoard until it's out of style, like so much of my vast stacks of paper!

  25. Sue, I love your vintage-looking card. It's perfect! So funny that we were both a bit anguished over cutting into the felt. And you're probably right -- it's because we love it so much! :) It is wonderful, isn't it?
