Papertrey September Blog Hop


Hello and welcome to the September Papertrey Blog Hop!

This months challenge was:
"One of the most fun things about this hobby is the people you meet, whether in person or online, and the things you learn from them.  Now is your chance to show off any skills you might have learned from a fellow stamper, and perhaps even give them a little shout out to thank them for the inspiration they have provided.  Create a project using one of your favorite learned skills!"

Well there are so many wonderful stampers that inspire me daily that it's hard to choose just one but I would have to say that I've learned so much about coloring, shading and using Copic markers from Debbie Olson.  So thank you Debbie for sharing all of your inspiring and beautiful projects and for sharing some really great step-by-step directions on coloring with Copic markers.
The card that I created for the Hop uses the PTI stamp sets Friendship Jar and Friendship Jar Fall Fillers as well as some Autumn Abundance PTI designer paper.  I had fun coloring all of these candy corn, by the time I was done coloring and actually eating candy corn I had a total sugar rush, lol.

Hope you're enjoying your weekend and thanks for stopping by!

Hey, on another topic (lol) do you know anyone who has an extra set of the 'freebie' stamp set from CHA that they'd like to sell? I am DYING to track myself down a set cause I love it. Love it even more after seeing the card you made with it a few posts back!
