Happy Birthday, Papertrey #4

I saved my favorite for last. I love-love-love these images from Tiffany Pastor. My original plan was to color the "open" letters in the "Happy day" image, but once I saw it the combination of the Pure Poppy, Kraft, and White, I couldn't bear to change a thing. I'm going to print several of these to keep on hand. What a versatile little "set" Tiffany gave us today.


Stamps: Fancy Flourishes, Tiffany's birthday stamp images
Ink: Versamark
Paper: Kraft, Pure Poppy, Bitty Dots Pure Poppy
Punches: Threading water, SU Scallop Square, 1 1/4 inch circle

Happy Birthday, Papertrey #3

Okay, this one was really simple. This image is from Beth Silaika. I'm glad there were several on the sheet because I can see myself using this image often.

Stamps: Beth's digi "Make a wish"
Ink: Sakura pens to color the candle
Paper: PTI Kraft, Lemon Tart, Summer Sunrise, patterned paper from DCWV stack

Happy Birthday, Papertrey #2

Here's another Papertrey Birthday Card. This one uses the stamp created by Becky Oehlers. This is waaaaaay out of my normal comfort zone (and, no, I don't own any Copics!), but I think it turned out really cute, anyway.

Supplies: (All PTI unless otherwise noted)
Stamps: Becky's birthday digi stamp, Star Prints
Ink: Pure Poppy, Spring Rain & some Sakura pens
Paper: Kraft, Bitty Dots Pure Poppy and Spring Moss,

Happy Birthday, Papertrey #1

February is Papertrey's anniversary month, and they really know how to throw a party. Today, their challenge is to make birthday cards using the digi stamps each of their designers created for the occasion. It's never a bad idea to have extra birthday cards on hand, and it's certainly not a bad idea to enter Papertrey's contests as many times as possible, so I went to my craft desk.

Card #1 uses Niki Estes' stamp. I'm so excited that Niki is going to design her own line of stamps for Papertrey. I can't wait to see what she's got in store for us.

Supplies: (all PTI unless otherwise noted)
Stamps: Polka Dot Basics, Niki's birthday digi stamp
Ink: Fresh Snow, Berry Sorbet, Lemon Tart
Paper: Kraft, Lemon Tart, Bitty Box Berry Sorbet
Ribbon: Aqua Mist
