HA/PTI Stamp Challenge Day 1

Hello, and welcome!

So glad you could be here for the first day of the HA/PTI Stamp Challenge! I am so very excited and honored to be joining the fabulous (and super sweet) Jennifer McGuire in a round of new challenges! Since Jennifer is a Hero Arts designer and I am part of the Papertrey Ink Design team, we've joined up to bring you 5 days of fun. Each day we will share a creation using both Hero Arts and Papertrey Ink stamps and/or supplies.

Here is what we chose to work with for today...
Hero Arts' A Village & Papertrey Ink's Boards & Beams. Here is what I came up with... Punched three different sized circles from white cardstock. Stamped circles with the A Village background image in Distress Inks, wrapped with white embroidery floss and then attached to the card base using dimensional adhesive.

Finished it off with a few Harvest Gold & Hibiscus Burst buttons and a sentiment from Boards & Beams.

A huge thank you to Jennifer for allowing me to join her in the fun. Be sure to stop by her blog and see what she came up with. I'm sure it's a stunner!

Thanks for stopping by, make sure to visit tomorrow for the second day of HA/PTI goodness! Hope you have a good one!
