papertrey ink august blog hop: let's get together for some coffee!



The 25th of each month is the Papertrey Ink Blog Hop!

This is the inspiration:



Raspberry Fizz + Gold = ♡♡♡


So, rather than heat embossing the sentiment, I used Delicata GoldenGlitz ink.  I feel like this is a cleaner way to get a sharp look on the delicate font.

I incorporated the gold polkas by adding some washi to the bottom of the note card.

The envelope:


I wish I had an easy smeasy way to do envelope liners but I don't so I decided to stamp the envelope with another coffee sentiment and swished it with, slightly diluted, Inka-Gold.  I love the added sheen!

I ended up making a set of 4 notecards with coordinating envelopes...perfect quick giftie!

and



Before you go, I wanted to also share my (forced) washi organization:


I was in search of my gold polka washi but didn't remember if I might have 2 different styles.  I had a huge mountain of washi that I hadn't put away so I just decided it was faster for me to organize everything, rather than dig.  I'm sure it wasn't faster but I love how my washi looks.  I've spilled into another printer tray...I love washi...I probably love to look at it more than use it but I'm trying to break that habit.

I'm looking forward to all the inspiration from the blog hop!

  33. Yep, gold ink is better than embossing with those delicate fonts, I think. The note card set turned out wonderfully! Great idea to use a printer's tray for your washi too. They all look so cozy there : )

  34. So pretty Amy. Love the gold polka-dot strip on the bottom. The inside greeting looks great. I think I have the same problem with washi. Like to look at them more than use them...
