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.

Thanks for looking!
