PTI Release in Review...

Good morning!  I hope you have enjoyed the PTI release week.  So many fun new products to add to your collection this week.  I have a few more cards to share and then tonight, you can shop!

This first card uses the new die from Paper Clippings: Thank you...


I did some ink blending with Scarlet Jewel, Pure Poppy, Berry Sorbet, and Sweet Blush and the cut out the die about 5 times, stacked them up and put them on the Cover Plates: Stripes background.

This next card showcases Friendship Jar Flowers and Inspired: Faith...


This was an easy card, stamping the bouquet along the top of the card.  Then I added the sentiment ins to finish off the card.

Super Succulents is another new set that is just too much fun....


I added some watercolor in the background, and then popped up the large succulent on the front, along with the sentiment in black cardstock.

I used Tiny Town School die, along with a sentiment from Dress Up Dolls: School Days to create this card....


I simply added the school house die on top of some Petite Places paper for the background.

Shaped Sayings: Father Day die was so each to cut and use for this simple Father's Day card.


And last but not least, I recently saw a card that Jennifer McGuire made using Vellum as the card base, with a smaller card inside and the sentiment heat embossed on the front.  I had to try one for my self.....


I heat embossed the splits image and the sentiment on the front of a vellum card base.


Inside, I attached a card with a piece of the Petite Places paper for the cover....


Opening that panel is where you can add your huh?


So that is it for today! Thanks for hanging out with me this week!  If you head over to Nichole's blog, you will see a list of links to visit and check out with the rest of the DT has for today's Release in Review.  Hope you have a great weekend!  


  1. This is a beautiful card indeed and just as good as Jennifers. I love this idea and watched her make this card last night. Ingenious. Really like your 'curves' at the bottom.

  2. Beautiful cards. I love the ombre effect in stunning!

  3. Fabulous cards, Laurie, full of inspiring ideas! Love what you did with the succulents and that school house card is so sweet.

  4. Beautiful and inspiring projects Laurie! :)

  5. All of them gorgeous! Love the school house and your vellum is so beautiful! I still want to give that a try loved the set JM made too!

  6. Another fabulous post, Laurie! Sure glad I don't have to pick a favorite because I want to CASE all of them. Your Father's Day card is very clever though with the brew behind the Shaped Sayings, and your vellum one would make Jennifer proud.

  7. OOOoooo! The Faith, Succulent & Get Well card....Faith- LOVE the CAS & the new Inspiration set for this card!! Succulent- LOVE the CAS & the water coloring of this! Quite eye-catching! The Get Well card- WOW! LOVE the way you did this! SO UNIQUE! I HAVE TO get some of the Petite Places Paper! ;) SUPER JOB LAURIE!!! ;)
