Papertrey May Blog Hop

Julian's #8 Card

Nichole challenged us to use rainbow colors, various shapes, 
splatters of color to create our card this month. Take a look
at the wonderful cards entered into this month's challenge at

We were given this photo for inspiration!

The inspiration photo is so fun - what to do with though? It reminded me of May flowers, movement, and a hint of the number 8. Aha! My oldest grandson turns 8 this week! So abandoning my dozen or more sets of Papertrey Ink floral sets I grabbed the PTI Triangle cover plate, the Tiny Triangles and Boy Basics: Out of this World stamp sets and set to work. It took a bit to figure out how many triangles with the rainbow color scheme could create an "8" and still let me stamp the rocket & sentiment inside the loops of the eight. I stamped the rocket a second time with Momento Black Ink, colored it with Copics and fussy cut parts to make the rocket stand out more, adding sparkly platinum Stickles for accent. The inside of the card uses Zappy Birthday stamp set to wish Julian a super day!

Stamps: PTI Tiny Triangles; Boy Basics: Out of this World
Die: PTI Triangle cover plate
Inks: Hero Arts Butter Bar, Orange, Pool, Navy, Red Royal, Soft Grape
