PTI Blog Hop ~ All Things Autumn



It’s time for another PTI Blog Hop!    The challenge this month is:

August is the month that Papertrey celebrates all things autumn!  What better way to get inspired for the upcoming season change than each other! Our challenge to you is to create a project inspired by any aspect of fall.  How about texture like fabrics, burlap, courduroy or stitching. Then there is color with hues found in autumn leaves, fall berries and other late season delectables. Patterns or motifs such as leaves, pumpkins, wheat and more.


I used PTI’s new Every Day Button Bits  stamp set for my card ~ What a fun collection of stamps, and SUPER easy to use!  I like that since it takes sooooooooo much time for the Copic colored images I normally like to do.  This was a nice change. 




The tree trunks were lightly heat embossed with copper DP,  for a bit of a rougher look.  I’ve had the center button forever in my stash, no clue where it came from.  But, as soon as I came across it I thought “autumn”!  





The DP used is from my fav – Graphic 45!   I love this sentiment, it really is a nice way to look at this season.  Unfortunately, the following season doesn’t compare to summer!!   🙂




Thanks for stopping in today ~ Hope you’re having a good week.
