Papertrey Ink 10th Anniversary Celebrating… 2011 – Hi Sweetie! Cherry Card

Time for another card for Papertrey Ink ‘s 10th anniversary – this time Celebrating the Past, Present and Furutre: 2011.

20170217_pti2011

Since I didn’t have any of the featured stamps from that year, I chose Betsy Veldman’s card for some cheery, cherry inspiration:

20170219_pti2011

I pulled out my cherry stamp and went with cheery red & white. To make sure the ‘stems’ didn’t interfere with the sentiment, I hand drew them in instead of stamping them. I also got to use my new Swallowtail Tag for the first time…

Papertrey Ink 10th Anniversary Celebrating… 2008 – Smile Butterfly Card

For today’s card, I looked through Papertrey Ink’s 10th Anniversary post Celebrating the Past, Present and Future: 2008

20170217_pti2008

Since I didn’t have any of the sets featured, I chose this pretty card by Gretchen Clark as my inspiration:

20170218_gretchen

And here’s what I came up with:

20170218_163656_wm

I may have gone a bit overboard with the pearl swirls, but once I started putting them on I had a hard time stopping. lol.

To color the butterflies in after stamping them, I used AquaBlend pencils and blended them with one of my favorite tools: a clear Sparkle Pen. It gave an amazing butterfly-like shine:

20170218_163805_wm

That’s the best pic I could get — It looks much more amazing in person!

Supplies used:

  • Papertrey Ink Flower Fusion #8 stamp set

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.

20170217_pti2007

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

20170217_170522_wm

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

20170217_170940_wm

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.

20170217_170609_wm

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!

20170217_171146_wm

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

20170217_170522_wm

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
  • Tombow Xtreme adhesive

Stamp-a-Faire 2016 – Color Blocking – ‘Stay Crazy’ Andy Warhol Style Card

Well, it’s the final wrap-up for Papertrey Ink’s Stamp-a-Faire 2016.

20160723_SAF

After this you’ll have a bit of a break from me. Now that I’m starting to feel better, I’ve got to catch up on everything I’ve let go this past week. At least I had some fun crafting to distract me!

The final session was on Color Blocking – Andy Warhol Style.

20160725_215812

I had to step WAY out of my comfort zone for this, but I did give it a go. By the way, a helpful tip: When you’re using masking tape to block off already colored sections, don’t just move it over the next section as some of the ink will stick to it and be transferred to the next block. Ask me how I know! Lol!

Unfortunately I didn’t have the shades of red and green that I wanted, but it still turned out Warhol-esque. I cut up the sentiments and merged them together to get this saying which seemed so apropos to both this crazy style and the implied crazy-like-a-fox. I placed everything off-kilter to match this chaotic style.

20160725_215829

Supplies:

  • Papertrey Ink Love You To Pieces: Fox stamp set
  • Papertrey Ink dye inks: Hibiscus Burst & Orange Zest
  • Memento dye inks: Bahama Blue, Bamboo Leaves, Dandelion, Nautical Blue
  • ColorBox Archival dye ink Beach Towels set: Red Devil

  • Misc. washi tape

Well, that was the last session from Stamp-a-Faire 2016. I enjoyed learning about some of the Masters of Art and using their works as springboards for new cards. I learned some new techniques and now have a nice set of cards ready to use! I’m already looking forward to next year’s Stamp-a-Faire! Hope to see you there!!

Stamp-a-Faire 2016 – Pointillism Play – ‘You’re Awesome’ Card

Welcome back to yet another session of Papertrey Ink’s Stamp-a-Faire 2016.

20160723_SAF

This session’s theme was Pointillism Play, with an interesting video on Georges Seurat’s works, which you can see HERE.

At first, I was going to cut out my flower, but I really wasn’t happy with how it turned out. Then I decided to continue dotting around it until I came up with soft background that I was happy with, but it still lacked something. Then I added some texture with twine string and I like the result.

20160725_155253

Supplies:

  • Papertrey Ink Floral Sketches and We Go Together stamp sets
  • Papertrey Ink dye inks: Aqua Mist, Hibiscus Burst, Lovely Lady, Raspberry Fizz, Tropical Teal
  • Memento dye ink: Dandelion
  • Recollections white cardstock and shimmer card.
  • Tombow Xtreme permanent adhesive
  • Misc. twine

Hopefully, I’ll be back again real soon.
