More Papertrey Ink

This is a bitter-sweet post for me! I have had so much fun over the past two months being Papertrey Ink's Distinguished Guest Designer. I would like to thank Nichole for giving me such a wonderful opportunity. Papertrey Ink, since day one, has been one of my all-time favorites. So...with that being said, why not share some more Papertrey Ink goodness.

When I first saw the new "Bird Watching" set, I was giddy! It is so cute! There is also a "Bird Watching Additions" set as well. I can't wait to play with it some more, especially when I am feeling better. This *bug* really has me beat and I just want to thank all of you get-well-wishers! You are all so sweet!

I have missed out on quite a few of my favorite challenges the last little bit, so this card started out being a past Mojo Monday sketch, but I never seem to follow the rules! LOL!

I used my oval, scalloped oval and ribbon label nestabilities. I love these! I added a few buttons threaded with Kraft cardstock and applied them with glue dots. I added a simple spring moss satin bow for the finishing touch.
Stamps: Background Basics: Text Style, Bird Watching
Ink: Spring Moss, Aqua Mist, Smokey Shadow
Paper: Everyday Blessings, White, Spring Moss
Accessories: Aqua Mist Vintage Buttons, Cream and White Vintage Buttons, Glue Dots, scallop edge punch by SU!, Nestabilitieis, Spring Moss Satin Ribbon, foam squares
For my next project, I used the new set designed by Nichole herself "Star Prints". I was browsing through the latest issue of Pottery Barn Kids and was inspired by one of the bedding sets for baby. This card is a result of that inspiration. I wanted to keep it clean and crisp, yet detailed. I decided to add different layers, dimensions and textures to achieve this look.

I embossed the star with silver embossing powder to give it some shine. I also added a button threaded with chrochet thread. I stamped the twinkle sentiment repeatedly, purposefully leaving off the "little" portion, across a strip of Soft Stone cardstock. I did the same with the tiny star image stamped in Spring Rain.I love the fonts that Nichole chose for this set. I added some Fresh Snow Topnotch Twill ribbon for the finishing touch.
Supplies: Star Prints Stamp Set

Ink: Smokey Shadow, Spring Rain, versamark

Paper: Smokey Shadow, White, Soft Stone

Accessories: Top Notch Twill (fresh snow), silver embossing powder, paper piercer and mat pack, star punch

For my final project, I used Lisa Johnson's new set called "Let Freedom Ring". I really like how versatile it is and can be used for tons more than just the fourth of July. With summer on it's way, I decided to make a 4th of July card. I knew I wanted some Vintage touches, so I sponged everything with Vintage Photo Distress Ink. By the way...did you see the great new inkpads that Papertrey has come out with for creating distressed edges? I can't wait to try them out! I also used two other new sets called "Background Basics: Text Style" and "Fancy Flourishes". I can see me reaching for these again and again.





I created the ribbon *bunting* by baste stitching a 12 inch or so length of ribbon, pulling it tight and then securing it with glue dots. I had a lot of fun with this design, especially using the flourishes. I think they add such whimsy and charm.



Again, I had so much fun and I am glad I get to stick around to continue to work on the My Timless Template Team. Thanks for fluttering by!

Ink: Fresh Snow, Vintage Photo Distress Ink

Kelly - What an artist you are, I am inspired every time I view your blog (which is daily). I just love the 4th of July card - what was the width of the striped ribbon. I just have to try the rosette. Thanks! Hope you are feeling better soon.
