Papertrey Ink :: Guest Designer

Hey Everyone! Thanks for stopping by today. If you came over from Nichole's blog, you've heard the great news!! I'll be Papertrey Ink's (PTI) Guest Designer for April and May. When Nichole first contacted me, I was floored and walked around with my jaw dropped for days. I am one of PTI's biggest fans and a loyal customer. Their products are very high quality, versatile, fun, and innovative. This is seriously a dream come true. Thank you, Nichole and to the PTI team for your everyday inspiration.

My PTI Favorites

Contest Details

Leave a comment on this post for your chance to win my favorites. Please limit to one comment per person. This contest will close at 7am EST, Saturday, April 10th. The winner will be announced by noon the same day on Papertrey's April Release Winners page. The winner will be responsible for contacting customer service within 30 days to claim their prize and provide their shipping information.

UPDATE: The contest is now closed.
Thanks for all of your supportive comments and warm welcome! :)

My Card

Selecting my favorites was a really difficult task because I like everything. So, when I finally narrowed down my list, I decided to challenge myself to create a card using all of my favorite PTI products that are up for grabs. While creating the card, I was not sure if I would be able to actually accomplish it, but with only one more stamp set to incorporate into the project, I made it work! So, here is my card using all of the PTI products that are up for grabs to win. The details and instructions are below.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Enjoy your weekend.

Instructions
  1. Trim kraft cardstock to 3.75" x 4.75", then stamp diamond background pattern with hawaiian shores ink. Ink edges and mat on 4.25" x 5.45" berry sorbet cardstock.
  2. Trim rustic cream cardstock block. Stamp sentiment and adhere to kraft cardstock.
  3. Trim ocean tides bitty dots patterned paper and die cut scallop edge, then ink edges and adhere to kraft cardstock.
  4. Trim rustic cream cardstock 1" strip, stamp text background with brown ink, and ink edges. Adhere to card front.
  5. Stamp leaves in ripe avocado ink, cut, then adhere to card front.
  6. Stamp flower in berry sorbet ink, cut, then adhere to card front.
  7. Stamp bird in berry sorbet ink, cut, then pop off card front. Add rhinestone for bird's eye.
  8. On berry sorbet cardstock strip, stamp "birthday" and pop off card front.
  9. With white gel pen, fill in diamond background pattern.
  10. Adhere berry sorbet cardstock to a rustic cream A2 card base. Ink the edges.
Tips & Tricks
  • For added dimension on leaves and flowers, adhere with a tacky glue on the inside and curl the paper upwards to make it pop up a bit.
  • If your sentiment will not fit on your cardstock block, consider breaking it up and stamping it on a contrast cardstock color and pop it up for dimension.
Supplies

Stamps :: PTI - background basics (diamonds), (text style I), giga guidelines, bird watching additions, life
Ink :: PTI - berry sorbet, ripe avocado, hawaiian shores; SU! - chocolate chip; Ranger - antique linen, tea dye; Uniball - signo broad white gel pen
Cardstock :: PTI - rustic cream, berry sorbet, kraft
Patterned Paper :: PTI - ocean tides bitty dots

Congratiolations!!!!

Your work is really stunning and it's right for you to be guest designer :)

I just love PTI stamps, but I don't have any, because the post rates for my country are so high :((

Warm greetings from Slovenia :)

I found your blog through your post PTI release party on Youtube Ashley - just a week or so ago! So I'm really delighted to hear your brilliant news. ALL your cards are so beautiful its no wonder Nichole picked you out. Congratulations!

Okay, so I just spent an hour admiring your work on your blog! I enjoy finding new blogs, especially one's like yours! Your work is amazing and inspiring. Congratulations on being PTI's guest designer.

Great to see your work on the PTI Team - love the use of fabric, ribbon and doilies, as well (of course!) as stamps! I remember having one stamp - then another - and another, amazing how many sets can be brought together to make one terrific card. And handmade cards are always appreciated much more, I think.
Looking forward to seeing more of your work and following your blog!
