Papertrey Ink August Blog Hop Challenge

I loved the inspiration photos from Nichole Heady's blog for this month's Papertrey Ink Blog Hop. Head over there and join in the challenge to use autumn textures, textiles & patterns in a project.

I put a few of my new PTI products to good use with this card.




My first step was to score a white card base for a faux corduroy look. I die cut "thankful" from a piece of Kraft cardstock that had been embossed with the Herringbone Impression Plate. To enhance the embossed pattern, I lightly inked over the top of the die cut.

The stamped sentiment is from the PTI Thanks All Ways stamp set and is tucked under a small panel stamped with the PTI Background Basics: Herringbone Stamp Set.

A little Baker's twine and the leftover piece from a zigzag border cut round out the pieces that were used to put together this card.

Thanks for stoppng by,

  4. Love all the creative ways you used herringbone in this stamp. I agree with you that I am ready for school to start. I am going to go to a class at Paper Tales with the one and only Kim Hughes of Paper Smooches. Will I see you there?

  12. Jacquie,
    This is really innovative. How clever to dry emboss and then die cut the Thankful sentiment. I love the masculine colors. Also, thanks for stopping by and leaving me a sweet comment on my blog. ( - :
