Hello happy crafters! I am overwhelmed by the outpouring of love and support yesterday regarding the announcement about me joining the Papertrey Ink Design Team. I was nearly moved to tears several times throughout the day yesterday feeling the kindness from all of you. I will try to respond to everyone, but I'm not sure I can do it. Please know that I read every comment here, on Instagram, on Facebook...everywhere. You have no idea how much it means to me. THANK YOU! I'm ready to get crafty! If you are new to my blog because of the announcement -welcome!!
Today is the day we kick off 10 days of festivities to celebrate 10 years of Papertrey Ink! Yahooooo! It's going to be so much fun! Each day, we are featuring stamp sets from one specific year. Today's posts are from 2007, the first year of PTI. What a great accomplishment to come to this milestone. I'm glad to be joining in the celebration. The stamp set I chose to use from 2007 is called Out To Sea. It's a beautiful Nautical themed set with anchors, ships wheels, stars and a beautiful compass. Well, I love the ocean and anything related to the sea, both because of my love for that cool salt air, and my faith.
I started this card with an A2 kraft card base and then layered a sheet of the beautiful printed PTI vellum. Then I stamped white ship wheels onto blue cardstock for my middle layer. Finally a piece of crisp white paper for my sentiment and some stars. I wrapped the top layers with beautiful red cardstock and mounted my anchor image with foam tape.
You can never go wrong with red, white and blue as a color palette. Always so crisp and clean.
Here is a close up of my paper layers.
