Hello there! I’m back again with Papertrey Ink as we continue to celebrate their 8th anniversary. Today is a very special day because Maile Belles is announcing her new line of products and they are just as you would expect….perfection, just like her. I love her clean, modern and trend-setting style.
My card features several of the new products, the first being this gorgeous pattern paper from the Watercolor Wonder paper pad. Hello, love. On top of that I layered and stitched the butterflies using the the new Beautiful Butterflies Layers dies. And last but not least is this gorgeous die cut sentiment from the new Swoosh stamp set & dies. Are you in love or what?
Make sure and check out Nichole’s blog to see more of Maile’s new products and what some of the designers have done with them. Thanks so much for stopping by!
Hi there! Today I’m joining Papertrey Ink as we begin kicking off their 8th anniversary celebration. It’s hard to believe it’s been eight years already, and it’s even harder to believe that I’ve been a part of their amazing team for almost a year and a half already. Time flies when you’re playing with PTI goodies, that’s for sure.
The above graphic is a collection of some of my most favorite PTI projects. You can obviously tell how much I love color and even more so techniques. All my favorite techniques are represented here from the “smooshing” technique to emboss resist, ink blending, adding color to embossing paste, generation stamping, layering die cuts and on and so forth.
When I look at these cards all I can feel is grateful. I’m so grateful to have this opportunity to work with such amazing products & designers doing what I truly love to do, and even better is the fact that I can do it at home, in my sweatpants while Dora the Explorer is blaring in the background.
Make sure and check out the Papertrey Ink blog to see more favorites from the rest of the team. There are some incredible challenges & prizes happening over there, too!
Thanks so much for stopping by today and for stopping by all the time and leaving such kind, thoughtful and encouraging comments. I appreciate them more than you’ll ever know.

I used the new Easter Egg dies on my card as well as the Easter Blessing stamp set for the sentiment.After die cutting the egg shape into my front panel. I used the positive part of the die cut as a mask to add some striped ink blending to make it look like a pretty Easter egg.
Not that I could ever achieve this gorgeous of an Easter egg. Do you know how many eggs you need to buy to satisfy five kids who want to color eggs till the cows come home? Well, it’s never enough and it always ends up in splattered dye and huffy attitudes. Oh, the holidays. They bring out the best in us all, don’t they?How about that gorgeous die cut bow? That’s also part of the Easter Egg die set. I just used my ink blender to blend some color onto the bow before adhering it together. And that gorgeous sentiment is so pretty from the Easter Blessing stamp set, too. So many fun new product coming out. Make sure and check them all out along the hop! Thanks so much for stopping by!
