PTI November Blog Hop



 Greetings, folks--and Happy Thanksgiving to all in the US!  This month's PTI blog hop subject is to create a project inspired by this photo.  I chose the colors, the gingham, and the flowers as my inspiration to create these gift tags:


They look quite large in this closeup photo but in fact each tag is only about three inches long. I used three PIT sets:  Year Of Flowers Collection (poinsettia image), Vintage Picnic (sentiment) and Background Basics: Gingham.  The flowers were stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black and cut out, then colored with Copic markers.  The yellow centers were applied with a yellow Sakura Souffle gel pen (it dries opaque).  The tags were die cut using a Mat Stack 2 die, stamped in SU Ruby Red with Gingham, and stamped with the sentiment in black.  The green at the top is Tim Holtz Peeled Paint distress stain applied with a sponge distress tool.  The flowers are popped up on pop dots.

I think they came out kinda cute...

Have a wonderful day hopping!
