Hi friends! Today is my third post for the Papertrey Ink Anniversary Month festivities! How are you enjoying the Papertrey Ink 10 Year Celebration? Each day for 10 days we are featuring stamps sets from one specific year! Today's posts are from 2011. 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! I have really been loving looking at all the past cards and then seeing what the design team has come up with currently. It is fun to me to look back at how our stamping has changed and how trends come and go. Such a fun celebration!
The stamp set I chose to feature from 2011 is called Tremendous Treats - Valentine. But since today is the day after Valentine's Day, I wanted to use the stamps to show how versatile our holiday stamps can be for any occasion. The images in this adorable stamp set are so sweet, and so perfect for kids' cards, little love notes, or general pick me ups! I have a love affair with the color yellow, so I chose to feature the cute lemons today - along with the beautiful Bright Buttercup papers! I used my Copic Markers to color in the images - quick and easy!
My finished card is a 4.75 inch square so it will still fit into an A2 envelope. I layered some polka dots and then another layer of white paper. I stamped and colored the lemons and die cut them out with the perfectly matching dies. The lemons are layered onto the card with foam tape. I wanted to make a little blossom for my card too, so I used the Bloom Builders #3 die set to create it! I added a few enamel dots for a bit of shimmer!
Pucker up! This card would be nice to cheer up anyone! Who can resist this adorable sentiment!?
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!
