Pretty in Pink with Papertrey Ink

It's blog hop day at Papertrey Ink.  The theme is Pretty in Pink and I decided to play along because "pink" is a challenge for me!  Besides...I have a few PTI stamps and dies in my NBUS stash (Never-Before-Used-Schtuff) and I really want to use them before Valentine's day!

Love Always

I love the look of the heart die - and I particularly love dots of the Stitched Pink Edge Label die.  I fell in love with it when I saw Cristina's use of it off the edge at the bottom of this post.

I've seen so many people layering up their word dies.  I've avoided it because it seemed like a hassle.  I tried it here and I am now convinced that it's worth the time!  I didn't do a dramatic color change - I love Soft Stone so used it to layer, then added the striped paper in the heart and the background.  

Love Always close

Here's some pink inspiration from Papertrey and there is so much more on their blog. The blog hop only opened an hour and a half ago and there are already 116 entries!

This is wonderful! I didn't know until just now that I need to get that stitched pinked edge die. I love your layout and your color scheme!

Marjolein said...

Well, pink sure looks good on you!!!
Ha, ha, you're so funny!
Anyway, your card is a stunner!
In your case I always think: 'Less is more'! And soft stone makes the contrast more gradual (?) if that's the correct word....
Love the layering and the sequins.
The twine bow adds a little extra to your card! :-)
Bye,

Marjolein

So clean and classy. I have seen the layered word dies too but haven't tried it yet; just one layer is often tricky enough! The colours you chose are beautiful together and it is a nice touch to a very cool card.
