PTI's Celebrating the Past, Present & Future -- 2013 to 2016

Today, I have five cards to share that I made for Papertrey Ink's

For my card for 2013, I used my Pedal Pusher set to make two cards:


For my first card, I stamped my background using PTI's City Scene in Altenew's
Morning Frost and Evening Grey. 
I blended Evening Grey and Mountain Mist onto my background.
I stamped my bicycle on the coordinating diecut in Mountain Mist, Evening Grey
and Jet Black ink.


I stamped my sentiment using Tropics.
I also decided to make a one layer card, suing the same colours of ink.


The sentiment is from Pedal Pusher and I stamped the hearts in Altenew Crimson.

For 2014, I made a card using Feather Finery:


I used my MISTI to stamp each leaf three times in PTI Stormy Sea, Ocean Tides & Aqua Mist. 
I spritzed my stamp with water each time before stamping it.
I stamped the speckles in Stormy Sea, without spritzing them with water.


I stamped my sentiment using Spring Woods.

For 2015, I made a card using Brushed Blooms:


A simple card where I stamped my images onto my background using
Altenew Morning Frost, Frosty Pink, Coral Berry, Ruby Red and Jet Black.


My sentiment was stamped using Spring Woods.
A sprinkling of Rainstones finish it off.

For 2016, I was inspired by this card that Betsy Veldman made:


I love how Betsy layered the two tulip diecuts together.
I decided to try the same thing with my Brushed Blooms stamp set.
Here's my card:


I blended Altenew Mountain Mist ink onto my background
and used the same ink on my diecuts, along with Altenew Mango Smoothie &
Ruby Red and PTI Simply Chartreuse, Limeade Ice & Orange Zest.


I stamped my sentiment using Spring Woods.

PTI's Celebrating the Past, Present & Future -- 2009 to 2012

Today, I have five cards to share that I made for Papertrey Ink's

For my card for 2009, as I don't own any sets from PTI that were released that year,
 I was inspired by this card that Laurie Schmidlin shared, using Giga Guidelines:


I used my PTI Lovely Layers card to make my card:


I loved the score lines that Laurie put on her card, so I did the same, using my Scor Pal.
I stamped my flowers on my background and on my coordinating diecuts
using Altenew inks.
I matted my card on PTI's aqua mist cardstock.


I heat embossed my sentiment (from Bloomers) in white on a strip of black cardstock.

For 2010, I was inspired by this card that Betsy Veldman made:


I don't own Wreath for All Seasons, like Betsy used, so I pulled out one
of my favourite PTI sets -- Twig Wreath:


I stamped my background using my Concord & 9th Barnwood stamp.
I diecut my white panel using Mama Elephant's Femme Frames.
I diecut my flowers/sprigs using my Twig Wreath diecuts and stamped
them with their coordinating images using Altenew inks.


I stamped my sentiment using Spring Woods.

For 2011, I was thrilled that Nichole picked a set that I own 
-- one that I just purchased last year -- Garden Variety.


A simple card where I stamped my images onto my background and 
the coordinating diecuts.


My sentiment was stamped using the Bountiful Mini Kit.



I love how she turned the seed packet from on its side!
Here's my card:


I used the Concord & 9th Barnwood Background stamp on my strip of aqua mist cardstock.


I stamped my sentiment using Winter Woods.

For 2012, I was inspired by this card that Betsy Veldman made:


I loved the white diecut clouds layered over the watercolored sun rays.
Here's my card:


I smooshed Terracotta Tile, Orange Zest, Raspberry Fizz 
and Summer Sunrise inks, mixed with water, onto my watercolour paper.
Over that, I layered some Fancy Foliage Details diecuts.


I stamped my sentiment using Winter Woods.

Papertrey Ink's Celebrating the Past, Present & Future -- 2008

Today, I have a card to share that I made for Papertrey Ink's

I don't own any sets from PTI that were released in 2008,
but I was inspired by this card that Betsy Veldman shared,
using Out On a Limb:


I just love this card from Betsy and decided to make a 
card that is very similar, using Spring Woods.


I blended Altenew Sea Glass and Forest Glades inks onto my background.
I stamped the bird and branches from Spring Woods onto their coordinating diecuts
using these two inks, as well as Sand Dunes and Dark Chocolate.


I stamped my sentiment in Dark Chocolate ink, using a sentiment from Songbirds.

I was also inspired by the colours of this week's Colour Throwdown Challenge:

PTI: Celebrating the Past, Present & Future -- 2007

Today, I have a card to share that I made for Papertrey Ink's

I don't own any sets from PTI that were released in 2007,
using Text Boxed:


I was inspired by the colours she used, the leaves and the fact that she
combined stamped images with watercolour.
I decided to use my Songbirds stamp set to make my card.


I stamped my leave images in Hawaiian Shores, Tropical Teal, Simply Chartreuse
and Dark Indigo onto my watercolour paper panel.
Then, I pressed Hawaiian Shores ink onto my acrylic block and mixed it with water
and with a paintbrush, coloured over my Hawaiian Shores stamped leaves.
I repeated this process with each colour of ink.


I used one of my Garden Gate stencils on Enchanted Evening cardstock
and blended Dark Indigo ink over top.
Then, I blended more ink onto it, without the stencil.
I stamped my sentiment in Dark Indigo ink, using a sentiment from Songbirds.
