Papertrey January Blog Hop Challenge

Happy Tuesday! I am back with a card for the Papertrey Ink Blog Hop Challenge!

Here is what the January Challenge is all about:

New Year's Resolution

With the new year comes a clean slate along with many resolutions. This month's blog hop challenge
involves you challenging yourself to use a Papertrey stamp set that has yet to see ink or even one that
might be collecting a little dust! Go through your stash and see what little used treasure it might hold. If
you are in need of inspiration for your chosen set, feel free to utilize the gallery posted in the side bar of
each set's sale page on our website, or go to the Previous Countdown page on Nichole's blog where
each set is organized by month of release. 2011 is the year where what's old is new again!

Ok, I am sure I am not the only one with too many stamps collecting a little dust :) I decided to pull out my Giga Guidelines Set. I use those word stamps of this set quite often, but the rest - well, they deserve more attention! So here is my card:


I first tried stamping on my dust-collecting Guidelines Cardstock, but it didn't turn out like I wanted. Then I played a bit on scraps of paper and came up with this doily like thing. I hope you like it!

You'll find a list of all the participants of the blog hop here on Nichole's blog. Have fun hopping!

Thanks for visiting and have a beautiful day!!!

Hugs,
Vanessa

Supplies:
Cardstock: PTI
Stamps: (Giga Guidelines) PTI
Ink: Ranger Industries, Tsukineko
Ribbon: Craft Shop
Pearl: Prima Marketing
