Papertrey Anniversary Cards!!!

I was short on time yesterday, so didn't get to play at the PTI party. Not so today!!

I went to PTI's Pinterest site, went to the Baby section, and used Debbie Olson's baby card as a starting point for mine.

I used Bitty Baby Blessing and Fancy Flourishes for the background; stamped in Memento black so I could color with Copics. The sentiment on the tag is from Mega Mixed Messages. Sweet Blush card base and ribbon. Not hard, but a little time consuming to color, lol!

Here is my version of Melissa Phillips card from June of 2011, it showed up on the 'favorites' day, and I wondered why I had not seen it before. Be still my heart! Pretty much a copy, except I used Memory Box paper to match the mint of that Library Ledger dot. Since I need to get 24 or 25 signatures on this one, I also layered the card onto a bigger base~ signatures can go on the back, too.

Last but not least is the card I started on the 'what is your favorite color combo day?' I used Pine's color combo, but Erin Lincolns card for the inspiration- ha! The Day 4 post is long, so you will need to scroll down to see the cards and color combos.

This card should really have been called Sweet Sunshine, lol. It's a very bright day outside, so not so good for photographing embellishments!!

A boy card like Lizzie's

Have I told you how much I love the Papertrey festivities? lol, I bet I have-

Yesterday PTI released a free download with a tag from Lizzie Jones. She showed it on a blue card, so I made a pink card. Last night I went back upstairs to the attic and made one just like Lizzie...

Taa Daa! I inked up the inside of a Sizzix folder to get white polka dots. The ink is a blue Studio g chalk, and it didn't photograph so well.

The sentiment is stamped in Marvy's Salvia blue, the ribbon is colored with Copics-

There is no 'card game' today, which is good since I have to work this afternoon. 13 more work days until retirement, but who's counting??

Papertrey Birthday Party Day 2

In my party treat bag from Papertrey today (hey, it is a party, right??) was a free download with lots of tags from the DT- and here's my entry!

I need 10 baby cards today, so it is a bright baby girl card-

All PTI products except for the Copic markers, I used R24 down the Fresh Snow grosgrain to make a ribbony part instead of coloring the paper.

Night NIght Moon border stamped in Berry Sorbet ink on BS paper. Polka Dotted paper for the baby from Bundle of Love. Sentiment from the bundle of Love set as well.

How to make it better? Put all of the add ons up higher; since the ribbon hangs down, it makes the upper half of the card look like it is missing something- with 9 more baby cards on the to-do list today, maybe I'll go do a boy version, lol!

Happy Birthday Papertrey!

It's February, and you know what that means! It's a party over at PTI, and I love PTI parties!! Today's challenge was to start with one of the DT's favorites, and go from there- I chose Danielle Flander's Birthday invite envelope, lol- how's that for inspiration?? My reality is, though, that there were at least 4 cards from the DT that I bookmarked to try this week as baby cards- it is true that I get almost all of my inspiration from this small but incredible group of women!

Yay PTI!!! I am your biggest fan!!!

Of course, it is baby card day, so I went with pink, and got it as close to a baby girl card as I thought I coiuld, without losing Daniell's design in there.

I used the January Flower Fusion stamp set that hadn't seen ink until this morning, and Autumn Rose ink and ribbon and buttons, another not yet used group of pretties. The stems and Martha Stewart punch edge are Spring Moss. The butterfly punch is another MS item. One button each from Autumn Rose, Aqua Mist, Canyon Clay, Summer Sunrise and Lemon Tart.

I do have to say I am loving the new inks, all of them!!
