PaperTrey Ink Blog Hop

 
Hello...it's time for another PaperTrey Ink Blog Hop.  It's been a couple of months since I played along and I loved this month's theme:  tilted.  I've been making several tilted cards so this was great to make some CAS cards.
 For my cards, I pulled out the PTI stripes set.  I've tried it several times, but never could get the stripes just right.  However, I ordered these grid blocks a few weeks ago and they are fabulous!  Helps line up the long stamps perfectly straight because of the grid lines.   The end result makes me happy :)!

These were so easy to make that I decided to make a set of them.
And while I was had my PTI sets out, I decided to make another card using some PTI sets that hadn't scene ink in a while!  Hope you like both cards and that you have fun checking out all the blogs!  My card below is being entered in the Passion for PaperTrey Challenge to make a card that is celebrating an occasion.

I picked up some of those blocks years ago, and while I ADORE them for their grid design, too, I wish they had comfort grip edges. LOVE the bright, happy palettes of both of your cards! So fresh and full of life!
