Papertrey Ink stamps

Thanks to Vanessa, I now have some PTI stamps! (I won some blog candy from Vanessa). Here are the cards I made to say thanks to her, using my new stamps.

This first one uses a Year of Flowers stamp called Violet.  This is the biggest image in the set.  I stamped it twice on iris and a gold cardstock, then overstamped a tone-on-tone antique flower image before reconstructing the pansy.  This pairs up nicely with my Martha Stewart pansy punch.

Supplies: PTI Year of Flowers - Violet,  HA S5264 Antique Flower Background, CL341 Thank You Sayings, Martha Stewart pansy border punch, Cuttlebug swiss dots embossing folder, iris, gold, white, green cardstock,  iris chalk ink, Versafine onyx black ink, mustard seed distress ink, purple colored pencil, gold pearls

This set is called Vintage Picnic, and I have been wanting it for a long time!  Thank you, Vanessa for enabling me!  It has 5 different baskets, plus the little plaid liner cloth, and oodles of fillers and sayings to coordinate.  (I also got the accompanying sentiments stamps to make it even more versatile.) This filler was a bunch of tulips, which I covered with tiny heart buttons. 

Supplies: PTI Vintage Picnic, Vintage Picnic Sentiments, nestabilities ovals, Martha Stewart butterfly bunch, heart buttons, BoBunny dotted papers, white and kraft cardstocks, colored pencils

My parents will be visiting for a few days this week, so I will be scarce for awhile.  Have a great week, everyone, and, as always, thanks so much for your lovely comments.  Today is the longest day of the year - enjoy!!
