Happy Tuesday, crafty friends! Popping in to share a card that I made for the June 2013 Papertrey Blog Hop. It was my first time to play in the PTI Blog Hop, and I really enjoyed it. There are so many fabulous entries to look at and get some inspiration from.


I started by stamping several images from the Funky Florals stamp set in Versamark Ink on a white panel. Although they are originally floral stamps, they worked perfectly to create a fireworks image. Then I heat embossed the images using white embossing powder.

After that, I inked each image in a circular motion using sponge daubers with Memento Dew Drop Dye Ink pads. Then I added gold glitter glue from Ranger in the center of the fireworks images. Next, I mounted my panel onto a black card base from Perfect Match Cardstock Sampler. To finish off the card, I white embossed the sentiment from Stylish Sentiments: Birthday.

I’m not sure I did a good job of representing the theme which is a “touch of gold.” Anyway I love the way my card turned out. 😉 What do you think?

Thanks for stopping by today. Happy crafting!
