Papertrey Ink 10th Anniversary Celebrating… 2007 – With Gratitude Card

I’m happy to be back crafting cards again! Phew! This year has gotten off to a slow start. Today I have a card created for Papertrey Ink’s 10th Anniversary celebration – Congrats, PTI!! They have been reviewing each of the past years and the first entry covered their releases from 2007.


I happen to have their sweet Spiral Bouquet stamp set and created this card:


The top of the card ends where the blue cardstock begins…


This is one of those cards that needed more space to lay the card out than the MISTI would allow and I used the We R Memory Keepers Precision Press which made quick work of the stamping and allowed repeat stamping in spots where I didn’t get full coverage.


I tried to get a close-up of the piercing done with a Dritz tracing wheel, but you can hardly see it.  You can’t hardly see the scored lines either, but they do add some extra interest. You can, however, see that fabulously shiny Crimson Copper ink!


I love how those Nuvo drops make such great hearts, too!


Supplies used:

  • Papertrey Ink Spiral Bouquet stamp set
  • Papertrey Ink Hawaiian Shores cardstock & dye ink
  • Spellbinders Classic Edges 1 dies
  • Tsukineko Brilliance Crimson Copper ink
  • Tsukineko Versamark Ink
  • Hampton Art Metallic Copper embossing powder
  • Core’dinations 120# white cardstock
  • MSPCI Style Steals jute
  • Tonic Studios Nuvo Crystal Drops Copper Penny
  • Aleene’s Super Tacky glue

I’m playing along with the following challenges… click on any one of them for more information on how you can join the fun…

I hope to be back soon with some more PTI cards… stay tuned!

One Layer Card with Papertrey Ink’s Papercrafting Alphabet Prompts

Hello dear friends, followers and visitors! Brace yourselves, today I hope to post several cards that I have been working on the past week, but have been too ill to post.

Let’s start with a card for Papertrey Ink’s 9th anniversary celebration’s Day 10 challenge using their papercrafting alphabet:


Using D.Ann, I come up with:

I also wanted this card to fit Simon Says Stamp’s Monday Challenge of Spritz & Spray and their Wednesday Challenge of a One Layer Card So, with all that in mind, here is what I came up with:


I spritzed and sprayed some Tattered Angels Glimmer mists, three of which were new but unused. I stamped with my new-to-me and unused til now Papertrey Ink Mat Stack 2 stamps. I don’t have any pierced border dies, and didn’t want to pierce each hole individually, so I dove into my sewing kit and used my serrated tracing wheel to do a nice pierced border. To add more interest, I embossed around the sentiment. I love how the Brilliance ink and the Glimmer Mists shine!:


The inside was nicely embossed and pierced, so I stamped another sentiment inside, brushed an inkpad over the embossing and used some chalks to finish it off:


It’s going in the mail on Tuesday to a sweet friend who sent me a yummy home-cooked meal yesterday.


Materials used:

  • Papertrey Ink stamps: Mat Stack 2 Collection & In Bloom
  • Papertrey Ink SAF2014 – Renaissance die
  • Dritz serrated tracing wheel
  • Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists: Bahama Blue, Bubble Light Green, Caribbean Blue, & Chocolate Covered Cherries
  • Tsukineko Brilliance Pigment Ink: Crimson Copper
  • Tsukineko Memento Dye Ink: Teal Zeal
  • Pebbles, Inc. chalks
  • Recollections white cardstock

I’m playing along with the following challenges in case you’d like to join:

Edited to add: Since that was so easy and since Papertrey Ink’s Day 9 Saturday Snail Mail challenge was to make a thank yo u card for their warehouse staff, I made another the same way:



The only difference is that on the inside of this one I used a sentiment from Papertrey Ink’s Flower Fusion #8 mini stamp set. I’ll enter this on in their contest via Instagram so there’s one less post today.

Thanks for stopping by and thanks in advance for your patience with today’s plethora of posts (assuming I get them done!).  : )

Be back in a jiff…
