PTI Blog Hop, Happy Anniversary


Welcome to another PTI blog hop, a feast for all PTI fans of amazing creations.  This month Nichole has challenged us to spotlight our favorite project from last year and create a new project inspired by the favorite.
I made this thank you card last year for the Make It Monday brayer technique challenge and just love the way it looks.  I have been making all sorts of fabulous wine labels and since life in the motel business is pretty slow in the winter, I thought that I'd have a celebrations promotion-- book a room and the Outside Inn will toast you with a handmade label and maybe a special card.  Some friends came to stay last week who were celebrating their 10th wedding anniversary, so while I should've made this in advance, I promised if they came back after I'd gotten my act together I'd give them their belated gift, thankfully they're local and thought that sounded great.  So, cheers for my Feburary "special occasions" promotion at work... hopefully I will be making a few more of these labels?



Materials: Label: PTI Mat Stack 2 Collection, PTI In Bloom Impression plate, PTI Mat Stack 2 die, PTI double sided banner die, PTI edgers, PTI cream card stock, vellum, Perfect Pearls, Versafine black ink, Stampendous clear embossing powder, Tim Holtz distress inks: fired brick, worn lip stick, ripe persimmions, mustard seed, Tattered Angels black mist, PTI limitless circles 1 3/4th inch die, EK Success corner rounder
