Hi friends! There is A LOT going on here on my blog this week! Yay! So much good stuff happening! How are you enjoying the Papertrey Ink 10 Year Celebration? Today is day three already! Each day for 10 days we are featuring stamps sets from one specific year! Today's posts are from 2009. CLICK HERE to go to Nichole's Blog to see everything so far and to enter contests and showcase your cards too. This truly is a party for all of us!
The stamp set I chose to feature from 2009 is called On My Couch. I'm pretty sure this is the first Papertrey Ink stamp set I ever bought! I remember just absolutely loving all the sweet design team samples made with this stamp set. It's perfect for paper piecing, and the sentiments are fantastic. I love it because it says "home" and "cozy" to me. Today I created a cozy little friendship card perfect for a gal pal. Because I LOVE to chat with my friends over coffee. One of my favorite things to do!
I started with an A2 card base made from Kraft paper. Then I cut a strip of beautiful PTI Gingham Paper. I cut out a white panel for my mail images. For the couches, I stamped them onto pretty Doodlebug patterned papers and cut them out by hand to get close to the edges. Next I stamped my table and coffee cups in the center.
I stamped the sentiment in black and cut it out using my circle dies. I layered a pretty orange circle and added some twine. I love orange and blue together - especially with kraft. It's one of my go-to color combinations.
The couches were attached to the card with foam tape and I added another sentiment in the bottom corner.
I used just a few Copics - for the coffee mugs and the legs on the chairs.
Now that I have showcased how this product from the past has remained a classic, it's your turn to share your ideas for the future! Stop by Nichole's blog to share a new project you make with this product, or just share a creation that is somehow inspired by what I made today. Get crafting and enter today so you can be eligible for great prizes!
One thing I really love about PTI is that everyone is encouraged to share their work. I can't wait to see what YOU make! Have a great day! I'll be back on Wednesday with a project from a stamp set from 2011! CLICK HERE to go shopping on the PTI website!
