Papertrey Ink April Blog Hop challenge

Hello everyon! Before my day starts to get really crazy, I just wanted to stop in with a card for this month's Papertrey Ink blog hop challenge.

I love navy and pink together, so this challenge was super fun for me...

I was inspired by a card I saw a couple weeks back - I can't remember where right now, but if I do, I'll link to it.
UPDATE: I found the card - HERE it is.
The card had a couple buildings, and the tops of some of those buildings cut, so it's pretty obvious where my inspiration came from. ;)

I'm considering doing another version of this card, with different colors and more watercolorey.

I didn't use the second step stamp on all of the buidlings from City Scene, just to give it a retro vibe.

That's it for me today - thanks so much for stopping in and enjoy the hop!

Cardstock: Canson
Stamps: Papertrey Ink "City Scene", Simon Says Stamp "Sending and Wishing"
Ink: Tim Holz, Studio Calico

Tools: Cuttlebug, Simon Says Stamp "Wishing" die


  1. Oh, wow, Clare, that is the coolest miss you card EVER! I love this one just prezackly the way it is, but I'm sure if you decide to do it again with a wash of watercolors, that will be fab as well!! Have a great weekend! Hugs, Darnell

  2. Oh my - your card just jumped out at me from the gallery Clare and I really love this fabulous design. The grey background colour is perfect to offset the scene!

  3. I remember seeing that other card too but not sure if it was Jennifer Raza, Laura Bassen....Your card really stands out in the thumbnails, maybe because it's not floral but mostly the crisp stamping design you created. Lucky receipient~

  4. i love those buildings - such a great set City Scene and I need to use it more - love that you cut the front panel and your sentiment choices are just perfect

  5. This city scene is wonderful! Love the colors you chose, and the almost one dimension vibe. So retro!

  6. Fantastic! I love your take on the inspiration! Great card!

  7. This so awesome! Love how each building is a different color!

  8. Clare, this is so adorably sweet!

  9. Very pretty! You were inspired by Julie Ebersole's Hello, Monday post from The Classroom on April 13.

  10. This is really cute -- and I love the sentiment -- i could use that for a friend

  11. This is so creative! I just love these little buildings stamped I'm those colors. Super cute card!

  12. Oh, I love this! Your colourful buildings are so pretty!
