PTI Blog Hop April 2011

I have two cards to share today, and I will be quick.  :)  First off, let me say that the "Boy Basics" line that released at Papertrey Ink this month is OUT OF THIS WORLD.  The Simple Circles stamps and die is the single greatest product release in months.  It is versatile, adaptable to all styles, and just plain adorable.  Take a look at that line of circles.  Perfection!  That Lisa Johnson is a designer super star!

You wouldn't know it (so I am going to show you), but the inside has a little sentiment combo that I thought was adorable.  

All Supplies from Papertrey Ink unless noted:
Paper: Plaid (My Minds Eye); Vintage Cream
Stamps: Boy Basics: Out of This World, Boy Basics: Simple Circle, Inside and Out: Happy Birthday
Dies: Out of This World, Simple Circle Border Die
Ink: Enchanted Evening, Pure Poppy, Orange Zest, Spring Moss
Other: Copics

I have one more card that I made and thought I would share.  Let me first say that I really wanted some google eyes for this frog, but I had to make do.  I will be heading to the store today or tomorrow to remedy this poor frogs eyes.  I had the plaid paper still sitting out from the card above and thought I would look cute for another boy card.  

Do you see the water/waves?  That is the negative of the Simple Circle Die.  It made the PERFECT water.  The photo doesn't show it well, but the dies leave just a little embossing around the edges that really made the water waves.  

All Supplies Papertrey Ink unless noted:
Paper: Plaid (My Minds Eye); Enchanted Evening, Dark Chocolate, Spring Moss
Stamps: Boy Basics: Frog Hop
Ink: VersaMark; Ripe Avocado, Tea Dye Duo
Dies: Frog Hop, Simple Circles Border Die; Sheltering Tree (My Favorite Things)
Other: Denim Embossing Powder (Ranger); Black Rhinestones (Kaiser); 

Thanks for looking.  I loved boy month so much!!!  I have to say that I have never liked doing boy cards, but I have really enjoyed using all the boy basic products.
