Butterfly Dreams: Papertrey Ink

Here is a card I made using the new February release "Butterfly Dreams". I have to say, this is my first stamp set from Papertrey Ink, but it will most definitely not be my last. I LOVE these stamps. I love everything about this company actually, the ink, the paper, the stamps. Love it all. I used Spring Rain cardstock and ink. I also used the new coordinating die by Papertrey Ink to match this Butterfly Dreams set and cut out some of the new Papertrey Ink felt using the die. Then I cut out some vellum, scored it, and glued it on top.

Here are a couple pictures of the die.

And the True Black felt. 100% wool. :)

And here is the finished product! I really like it. :)

PTI Challenge 02/13/10

Another PTI challenge today! I did another simple card, that I think is quite darling if I do say so myself. :) The challenge: Design a floral embellishment, then create a card using one and and an acetate sheet of them to share. Well, I didn't have a 4x6 acetate sheet, but I had a bunch of smaller acetate sheets, so I improvised. Always good to improvise in this hobby right?

Again, I'm not a good photographer or I just have a non-high quality camera. But the card says Happy Day! on it. I like this saying because it can be for a birthday, another happy kind of day, or just because. :)

Thanks for stopping in!!

PTI Challenge!

PTI (Papertrey Ink) is having an origami challenge! They have been counting down to their new releases on the 15th of the month, and it's been a blast to follow! Exciting new things to come from them!

The challenge was to make something using origami, and I choose to make a tulip card. I'm not very good at origami, as I found out, but I think it turned out ok anyway! :) I got the directions from this cool site:

I made this card to give away to a friend, saying it's been too long since we've got together! :) I got to use my new Stampin' Up punch too!

Thanks for dropping by! I have a few days off so hopefully more to come!
