Papertrey Ink Make It Monday #243

The challenge for Papertrey Ink's Make It Monday #243 is blending ink over heat embossing. I heat embossed Papertrey Ink's Lace Bouquet set in white and blended three Distress Ink colors (Tea Dye, Tattered Rose and Antique Linen) over the top to create the background.

Papertrey Ink Blog Hop

Today is the Papertrey Ink blog hop. Our inspiration is the art of Izziyana Suhaimi. She embroiders on paper with stunning results. I created a card with some basic stitching using embroidery floss.

Inspired by Melissa Phillips

This month marks the 6th anniversary of Papertrey Ink, one of my favorite craft companies ( To kick off the festivities today, the design team was spotlighted and a challenge issued to make a card inspired by a member of the DT. The hardest thing about this challenge is choosing a designer. Nichole and all the DT members are incredibly talented and it is obvious that they all work very hard on their projects, tutorials and blog posts.

I chose Melissa Phillips as my inspiration. Her cards and projects are works of art, no kidding. I love everything she makes and her blog is one of my favorite places to visit on the internet ( Melissa puts heart and soul into her gorgeous creations as well as her blog posts. What a sweetheart!

Melissa, thank you for all the inspiration you have given me. I want you to know how much your contributions are appreciated and enjoyed. This one's for you!
