Oh la la, Shopping Spree! So, I've been cooped up for weeks, right? It's my BFF birthday, and she had $100.00 to spend. I had a $75.00 credit at the LSS, and a $20.00 credit at the not-so LSS. What are a couple of old girls to do in these circumstances??
Shopping spree! I have bought so many things over the past 3 days- counting 2 Papertrrey orders too, lol- that it will take me a week to show it all to you! First I wanted to try Flower Soft... the colors above are Lilac and the mix is called Fushia. I think they look good with Papertrey's purples, as well as SU's Almost Amythyst. I also bought some of the paper and ;'topper' they produce, just so I could follow the directions exactly. Some of those I did came out really nice, too!
Now, I hesitate to show you this card, since it is superb IRL, but the alcohol inked paper looks funny in the photo. Trust me! Ranger came out with new alcohol ink colors, and I bought 3- Cloudy Sky, Salmon Pink, and Mountain Rose. I was going for baby card backgrounds of course, but mixed with a gold Pilot Pen, this piece that matches PTI's Melon Berry popped up. Stamped PTI's Life in Spring Moss, then followed the Flower Soft directions and used Sweet Pea. Ha! You knew I would buy one with that name, right? Golly gee whiz, doesn't it look good with Melon Berry! The nice medium sized birthday sentiment is from Papertrey's new anniversary set.
I really hope you can see the beautiful Melon Berry colors!
Some of the folks on the Papertrey forum have been griping about the black buttons. Me? I tend to not gripe about little things like buttons, I only gripe about real injustices in the world. Well, maybe some people gripe about buttons because it takes their mind off of the real injustices? Oh dear, a digression....
Papertrey may or may not produce buttons to match earlier colors, so on my spree I came across brown buttons that look great with Dark Chocolate, and green buttons that look pretty good with Spring Moss. See the tiny jar? The label said Tres Jolie, that 's all I can tell you- no color label at all. That tiny jar was $3.75, and I bought two of each color. So, look at the Chocolate jar- that's $7.50 worth of buttons. The fuller jars are Papertrey's buttons of course- each of those jars is one bag that cost $5.00.
More shopping and cards tomorrow!!
