May All of Your Wishes Come True - Papertrey Ink April Blog Hop Challenge

It's a special day over on the PTI blog, with a brand new challenge, and a gorgeous inspiration photo! 
So today I'm sharing a colorful card inspired by the beautiful florals and homey touches.


I really wanted to recreate and emulate the beautiful tones in the inspiration image, but also play up the homeyness vibes, too. I decided on a colorful floral bundle tucked inside a mason jar.


For the jar, I used PTI's Friendship Jar stamp and die, along with a beautiful Spring Rain stamped filler. To decorate the jar, I used the stamps and the Jar Topper dies. This set will forever be a favorite :)


Before I assembled my jar full of flowers, I added a scalloped Journal Card #2 die cut, stamped with some green dotted details to resemble baby's breath sprays. I adhered this to a white card base, and then arranged my florals, jar, and jar topper bits. I added a wee green heart, too, just for fun :) 

Around the florals, I added a few little liquid pearls, stitched Autumn Rose buttons, and few little flowers.


For the sentiment, I used a combination of stamps and soft pink ink colors because I really wanted the look to be "patched together" and extra cozy and homey, just like the inspiration photo.

For the sentiment, I used the Hugs stamp set and stamped the banner in Hibiscus Burst. I also used the Swoosh stamp and dies along with Lovely Lady ink, an older circular sentiment stamped in Sweet Blush, and for the final bit, I stamped a sentiment from the Just Desserts mini stamp set in Raspberry Fizz.


The thing that really stood out to me about the inspiration photo was all the texture, so I wanted to make sure to incorporate a good dash of that, too :) 

I added a bit of polka dotted paper (a gift from my dear friend), some patterned fabric tape, and sweet hearts stamped in Bright Buttercup, onto a Confetti Garland diecut.  

And of course, a dash of few more pearls and stitched buttons!

 To cut all the goodies I used the new SB.com exclusive  Spellbinders Platinum cutting system which is being featured over on SB.com as a bundle!! It's such a fabulous price - I recently picked one up so I could have a second cutting system for crafting on-the-go and I have to say I love it. Bonus, it's white and uber gorgeous!


Thank you all for joining me, and please head over to the PTI blog to check out all the incredible art that has been shared. There are SO many inspiring cards to while the day away with! And here's the photo that inspired it all


Since it's getting quite late here, I'm saving my hopping experience for the morning - best enjoyed with a cuppa!
