Playing with PTI

I got to play with the new Papertrey stamps last weekend. I adore how these designs stand on their own. No pretty papers or ribbons or tons of bellies needed!

This is the new Damask Designs (Raspberry Suite by the adorable Dawn McVey) stamped on Berry Sorbet with Fresh Snow pigment ink. That is my new very favorite ink! It's amazing how crisp the white stays after drying!



The next two cards are made with Beyond Basic Borders (Pinefeather Press by my sweet friend Pine!). I am soooo going to love the versatility of this set!
The first card uses the little tree, stamped in Fresh Snow pigment ink with little pearls attached to the ends of the branches. Thank you is stamped on a strip of Spring Moss bitty dot paper.

This card uses two of the border strips in the set, stamped in Vintage Cream pigment ink (another new favorite!) on New Leaf cardstock. I used my tracing wheel to faux stitch between the stamped lines. The leaf image is stamped on cream cardstock with pearls added to the little dots.


I have many more ideas swirling in my head for these sets. I hope you don't get sick of them! LOL
