PTI Blog Hop

The theme challenge for the PTI Blog Hop this month is "stitching." I have PTI's Embroidered Blooms stamp set. It's one of my favorite flower stamp sets!

It's a bolder color scheme than I'm used to using, but I really like how it came out.

Altenew February challenge

I took a class by Altenew at CHA and fell in love with their layered flower stamps. The class didn't offer freebie sets, so I had to go buy my own. I chose the stamp set called Golden Garden with matching dies and another one called Super Script. I love the bold mod look and these flowers and sentiments make it easy to whip up a quick tag.

J - jewels
O - ombré
N - something new

And here is my tag:

I used my new PTI tag die and PTI Scribble Circles stamp.
