Tissue Paper Fun! PTI Blog Hop



Welcome to the April Papertrey Ink Blog Hop!  This month we're focusing on tissue paper which has become one of the hottest trends in the paper crafting  industry.  Our challenge was to somehow incorporate tissue paper into our projects.


Here's my first card (stay tuned for more cards using tissue paper in the next few days).  I used a scallop border die to cut the tissue scallops in white, aqua and polka dot.  There are three layers of tissue in each column.  It makes such a delicate border!


I added aqua & crystal rhinestones, as well as aqua pearls to the dots on the Round & Round stamp.  It sparkles so much in real life!


I have always thought that the Fillable Frames 3 die reminded me of clouds, so that is what I tried to do here.

I cut several layers of the polka dotted tissue paper, stamped the frame image on to it, crumpled them slightly and staggered them to make them look fluffy.



The trail of  "smoke" from the airplane is from the bee stamp in "Baby Button Bits".  I thought it was perfect for the airplane.  I cut the hills from Green Boutique patterned paper using 2 different sizes of circle paper punches.

Ok, last card!  This one has tissue paper flowers, tissue paper mat & a tissue paper butterfly.


I folded up tissue paper and made a 3D look for the flower centers. Then, I also stamped leaves on white tissue paper and cut them out. I then added a butterfly that has a whole stack of tissue paper layers.


Thank you SO much for stopping by my blog today! I'd LOVE to hear your comments and thoughts!
