OCTOBER PTI BLOG HOP

This month's theme for the PTI blog hop, is Polka Dots.  To create any project using polka dots.  My son's birthday is a few weeks away, so I am starting to pick up gifts for him.  He loves video games and movies, so here is one of his presents, a little gamer package.  A few Wii games, Iron Man the movie and some new DS stylises (sp).  I will add some popcorn and candy to it, but its still to warm to keep chocolate laying around, today its in the 80's!
I made a coordinating card too.  Since this is for a boy, I couldn't go overboard with the polka dots, so I kept it more subtle.  The dark chocolate polka dot ribbon on the card really make it pop, so I am happy with my results.



Here is a list of supplies I used for this project:

large white Gable box
Borders & Corners mini stamp set
My Puny Valentine stamp set
Trajan Monogram edition stamp set
PTI Anniversary stamp set
Pond Life stamp set
kraft cardstock
poppy cardstock
stampers select white cardstock
Ripe Avocado Palette ink
L'Amore Red Palette ink
Adirondack Pitch Black ink
Poppy Twill
Poppy satin polka dotted ribbon
Dark Chocolate polka dotted ribbon
May Arts sheer red ribbon
