PaperTrey Ink 10th Anniversary Cards 2007 and 2008

Hey everyone!! Just popping in to post the two cards I created for PaperTrey Ink's 10th Anniversary.

My first card was inspired by Nichole Heady's 2007 card.

I did not have the set she had so I had to improvise. I used "Background Basics: Text Style II" for my text background and the leaf from the "Harvest Berries" stamp set.

The card below is the card that Nichole created.

I took her inspiration of inking, the text background and the layering of elements on her card to make my card.

It is hard to tell but I added some Spectrum Clear Marker over the leaf to give it some sparkle. Purple is so difficult for me to photograph at night!!

For my second card, I used Michele Leon's card  as my inspiration. She used a 2008 set "Floral Frenzy" as her inspiration for a fabulous graphic card.

I did not own this set either so I improvised with using "Heart 2 Heart #12" stamp to make some circles.

This stamp was a bit smaller then Michelle's but I thought it would be perfect. Instead of a scalloped frame, I paired it with PTI's "Pretty Frame Die."

The sentiment was from "Tag It #11." Excuse the fuzz on this photo. I will never stamp another card wearing a black cashmere sweater!! It gets everywhere!!

I have to be honest, neither card came out how I wanted it too. However, that is what happens sometimes. I decided to post them anyway.

Well that is all from me today. I think you for stopping by!!
