PTI Blog Hop ~ Using Text


Yay!  It’s time for another PTI Blog Hop.   The theme this month is “how you use text in your projects”.   




I chose PTI’s Quilters Sampler stamps for my card.  I thought the text theme would work well with this sentiment, portraying the many stories that piece together our lives. 

The quilt blocks were stamped onto preprinted text paper by Graphic 45.   It’s pretty hard to see the actual text on the blocks in the photos … but, it’s really there!   Each block is colored with Copics, highlighted with Distress vintage photo ink and some Kaiser self-adhesive pearls were added.   



 The background dp is also from Graphic 45  and is a polka-dotted paper ~ each dot has text on it.




Thanks for stopping in today!   Hope you’re having a great weekend.
