Skylark Blog Hop

 Welcome to the Pineapple Paper Artists Blog Hop. Whether you are arriving from Martha's blog or starting here, I hope you will enjoy our creations made with Skylark paper. Please click the link below to continue to Amy's blog.

I wanted to show the versatility of Skylark paper by making a more "masculine" layout. I made this layout with Skylark paper on Desert Sand cardstock. I edged the white photo mats in Desert Sand ink and the Sweet Leaf paper in Lagoon ink. My title was made by tearing the Chocolate Woodgrain Washi tape Z1930 into letters. The tags and other stamping were done with the True to Life C1575 stamp set in Lagoon Ink. I used the Timberline wooden accents and Shimmer Trim tape in Bronze and Teal to add some fun. A little Burlap ribbon and Topiary Mini Chevron ribbon add dimension. The tags are tied with Hemp Baker's Twine.

Now you can check out Amy's blog. Happy hopping!

Camper card

I made this card with the adorable Camper Crazy C1578 stamp set. Love it! I used a bit of Timberline paper to mat the tag and to do the inside. My dad would always ask my brother and I if we were "happy campers" so this made the perfect Father's Day card for him. 

Balloon Ride

This is the layout we made at Club using Balloon ride paper. The Colonial White papers are embossed with the Quatrefoil and Damask folders. The Damask pattern is inked with Crystal Blue. We sponged the edges of all our papers with Cashmere ink. We embellished with Rosewood accents and Bronze Shimmer trim tape. The shape was cut out on Art Philosophy and stamped with Frame Flair. The pattern for this page was inspired by one in Magic. We also "stitched" the edges of our paper using the CTMH ruler, a piercing tool and a brown marker. (I don't sew!)
