Papertrey Ink Anniversary Month

Its a big month over at Papertrey Ink. They are celebrating their 4th year – its hard to believe that they’ve only been around 4 years. It seems every issue of every magazine has at least 1 Papertrey Ink product on every page. I have only recently started card making and have already built up quite the stash – every set is gorgeous!

Over at Nichole’s blog they are doing a BIG giveaway (huge, actually!) and in order to play along we’ve all been asked to select our favorite projects from the last year. This is a tough one as every thing I do probably has a PTI product, but I’ve narrowed it down to a few cards.

I posted this one recently for the January Blog Hop – I like that I did something a bit different on this card with the ribbon vase.

I also like this simple card I made a few months ago:
Lastly, I was happy with this set using Asian Fusion – one of my first PTI stamp sets and still one of my faves!
I can’t wait to see what PTI has in store for the year ahead!
Thanks for stopping by!

Papertrey Ink Blog Hop

Hi everyone!
I’m participating in the Papertrey Ink Blog Hop for the first time this month & was very excited about the challenge: ‘This month’s blog hop challenge involves you challenging yourself to use a Papertrey stamp set that has yet to see ink or even one that might be collecting a little dust!’

I have made 2 cards for the Blog Hop. The first uses Larger than Life and the second uses Heart Prints. Both of these sets are beautiful, but I don’t use them nearly as much as I would like.

Here is the first card – the sketch is based on the current challenge over at Clean & Simple Stamping – sketch 124 – and the colors are for the Neutrals Color Challenge for Color Inspiration for Card Makers Week in the Moxie Fab World Challenge. This ‘ribbon vase’ is much better in real life! As I definitely freed my creativity on this one, I’m also entering into the current challenge at Wee Memories.

My next card uses Heart Prints & Fancy Flourishes – the sketch is based on the current challenge over at Get Sketchy. The colors are more pinks for the Monochramatics Color Challenge for Color Inspiration for Card Makers Week  over at Moxie Fab World. This also fits nicely with the current challenge, ‘Sweet Inspiration’ over at A Passion for Papertrey.


Thanks for visiting & enjoy the Blog Hop!
