PPPR ~ Hot, Hot, Hot! Blog Hop

Hi everyone!

Thank You for joining us for the Pretty Paper Pretty Ribbon Hot Hot Hot! blog hop.

Make sure you start the blog hop at the beginning over at Lisa's blog HERE if you just happen to be passing by. You don't want to miss all the "Hot" projects that were made using PPPR files. If you're coming here from Brianna's blog than you're in the right place.

For my project a made a A2 size beach scenery card. I used PPPR "Dress Up Girls 1 Cutting Files" for the cute little girl along with PPPR "Dress Up Girl Swim Suit 1 Cutting Files". I used Peachy Keen Princess Face Assortment stamp for the face and added some Glossy accents to her sunglasses. For the yellow of the swim suit I added yellow Stickles. The tree is from PPPR "Dino-Mite Cutting Files" and I used Tim Holtz tea dye and mowed lawn distress ink. The clouds are from PPPR "Kite & Clouds Cutting Files". The sun, sea shell and starfish  are from PPPR"Day at the Beach Cutting Files". I used textured paper for the sand and went over it very lightly with Tim Holtz tea dye distress ink. The waves and sand are cut from the same PPPR "Borders 5 Cutting Files". To get my sand the way I did I just doubled clicked on the image and played around with the point editing till I got what I wanted. The sentiment is from Pink By Design "Summer Vacation" stamp set  and on the inside of the card I stamped a Happy Birthday sentiment.

What I used:
Glossy accents
Yellow Stickles
 Tim Holtz tea dye distress ink
 Tim Holtz mowed lawn distress ink
Tim Holtz vintage photo distress ink
Tim Holtz festive berries distress ink
Pink By Design "Summer Vacation" stamp set
