Papertrey Ink January Blog Hop

January Blog Hop Challenge: New Year's Resolution

With the new year comes a clean slate along with many resolutions. This month's blog hop challenge
involves you challenging yourself to use a Papertrey stamp set that has yet to see ink or even one that
might be collecting a little dust! Go through your stash and see what little used treasure it might hold. If
you are in need of inspiration for your chosen set, feel free to utilize the gallery posted in the side bar of
each set's sale page on our website, or go to the
Previous Countdown page on Nichole's blog where
each set is organized by month of release. 2011 is the year where what's old is new again!


I decided to go crazy and try to use every set I own that hasn't seen ink before. So I sat down on the Saturday after the January release and knocked out 14 cards and I'm only a handful of sets away from inking everything! I picked one of my favorite of the cards I made to share today. I hope you like it! Thanks for stopping by!


Supplies: PTI Plum Pudding and Fine Linen Cardstock, PTI Tiny Treats: Halloween and Up, Up and Away stamp sets; PTI Dark Chocolate ink, Tsukineko Tuxedo Black ink; PTI Dark Chocolate twine; PTI impression plate; Copic Markers
