Papertrey Favorites...


2016-team
I can't believe its Anniversary month over at Papertrey Ink!  This marks Papertrey's 9th Anniversary (and my 2nd Anniversary with PTI too!).  We have LOTS of fun stuff coming up this week and I hope you will join me each day, as PTI shares a new challenge for you to participate in and also, new goodies to see!

When I think back on this last year, I can think of so many fun things that stand out but this memory stands out the most....

This year has been such a fun year!  February also marks my 2 year anniversary with Papertrey Ink and what a blessing it has been!  I have so many great memories over the past 2 years, but what stands out this year is Stamp-a-Faire.  Thinking back on how I "attempted" to dance to the Vogue music video, still makes me laugh.  I remembered freezing up in front of the camera and I couldn't get myself to move!  I want to wish a very Happy 9th Anniversary to Papertrey Ink and everyone behind the scenes!  

I picked my favorite card of 2015 from the March release. This color combo is one of my favorites!

Here is the color combo for my card....

And here is my new card using these same colors....

PTI Anniversary Day

I used the Twig Wreath Die to create the flowers and leaves on this card.  I took each of the 3 sizes of flower dies and pressed a stylus down in the center of each and then glued them all together.  I did the same thing with the leaf dies, so they would have a little dimension.  I also added some Copic highlights to each leaf.  The center of each flower is a dot of black liquid enamel.  I stamped the "Thank You" sentiment on one of the stripes from the Cover Plate: Stripes Horizontal.

To place these stripes, I used this technique with Press n Seal.  You can see my original video from back in August of 2014 HERE.

  13. Wow, Laurie, you outdid yourself! Love this colour combo and your stunningly simple designs. So happy you're back with PTI because 1) you're one of my favourite designers and 2) I also kinda like PTI. P.S. Jennifer's husband may have invented Press N Seal, but it's you who rocked it.
