Papertrey Ink January Blog Hop

Today is the day for January Papertrey Ink blog hop and after my trip to America in December I'm still working through all my new PTI goodies!!  I think it'll take me until my next visit to get through all of them but I am making a concious decision to get ink on at least some of my new stamps.

So the challenge this month is:
 This month, in honor of the New Year, we are challenging you to pick your favorite project from 2011 and share it with all of us. To take it a step further, you are challenged to create a second card that is inspired by the favorite project you select. Your new version of an old favorite could carry over the color scheme, the layout or the stamp sets. We look forward to seeing your best creations from 2011, as well as your first projects from 2012!

Here's one of my favourites that I managed to share on my blog last year:

I still like the layout of this card, so I've used some old/existing stamps but also integrated some new stamps into my new project and gone for a different but still bold colour theme.

Supplies used (all Papertrey Ink):
Stamps - mat stack collection 3, tag-its #10
Dies - mat stack 3, layerz mat stack 3
Ink - raspberry fizz, spring moss, aqua mist
Card - raspberry fizz, spring moss, stampers select white
Paper - Funky Town
Ribbon - Hawaiian shore

I'm also popping this into the challenge at:
Creative Inspirations - #147 anything goes
Stamptacular Sunday - seeing spots

I'm now off to blog hop and know I'll be blown away with all the gorgeous creations from my fellow PTI fans.

Thank you for hopping by.
Love ya

I love both your cards! I seem to forget about using the mat stack dies. I like how you placed a cupcake with a small banner inside the circle. Excellent idea and pretty cards.
