More Papertrey Ink Challenges

I have cards for two different Papertrey Ink Challenges today. They've had a lot of great challenges to celebrate their 9th Anniversary, I just wish I had time to play in all of them!

My first card is for the Sample Square Challenge which is to create a card that features nine 1-1/2" squares, each altered in a different way, using a variety of techniques. A had a lot of fun making this card and I had so many ideas but I ran out of squares! I used Turning A New Leaf stamps and dies.

My techniques are:

  • texture kissing with an Impression Plate
  • gold embossing on alcohol ink background
  • white embossing on water coloured background
  • emboss resist
  • pearlized ink blending
  • water coloured die cut
  • stamp kissing
  • felt embellishment on water coloured and splattered background
  • gold embossing on ombre background
The next card is for the Saturday Snail Mail Challenge, which is to make a thank you card for PTI's warehouse staff. These are the hard worker bees behind the scene!

I made a floral background with Vintage Linens and added a vellum layer. The Wonderful Words Thank You was layered 3 times and adhered to some messy silver thread.

Thanks for stopping by today and Happy Valentine's Day!
