Papertrey Ink has this stamping event going on and up first is this Stamper's First Aid submission. This is a card I did recently for a friend's wedding which is in a couple of weeks time. I think it can do with a little something to make it more interesting - perhaps one of the DTs can help me out here?

For this week's MIM, I used PTI's Sunrise Impression Plate on white cardstock, and stamped it with the text from PTI's Background Basics: Hearts Stamp Set using Soft Stone. The "YOU" is from PTI's Wonderful Words Die Collection and the little diecut butterflies are from Bella! I mounted it on Sweet Blush Cardstock.

Wow, I can't believe my last post was back in 2009! Since then, I've set up my own little online shop (selling beautiful fabric - I really love all the designs!) and spending loads of time with the children, that I didn't have the time or the energy to do any crafting or scrapbooking. But I still yearned to do some crafting and recently came across Papertrey Ink. Oh my! Did I fall in love with their stamps, dies, inks, paper.. you name it - I love it! I got my first shipment a week ago, all very professionally packed and I was so impressed. So last night, I got down to making my first card for a wedding I'm attending tonight. I used the masking method by Betsy Veldman (she's so talented!) - so very easy to do and came up nicely with their Rosie Posie and Love & Marriage stamps. You can see a video of how Betsy uses the masking technique on Papertrey's blog. I also did a matching envelope with the same stamps... Now, I can't wait for my next shipment of their latest release stamps & dies! Till then.. Papertrey Inc stamps: Rosie Posie and Love & Marriage Papertrey Inc inks: Simply Chartruese, Sweet Blush, Berry Sorbet, Dark Chocolate, True Black, Aqua Mist, and Fine Linen
