Hi everyone! Today I'm here to share some projects made with the lovely new 2017 Papertrey Ink Anniversary Stamp Set! It's called Grand Finale - and it's a beauty! What is an Anniversary set you ask?? Well, the anniversary stamp set is released once a year, and is a special customer appreciation set that can only be purchased with PTI reward points. Rewards points are earned by shopping all year with us at PTI. CLICK HERE to see how it works!
This new set is so beautifully modern and pretty. I love all the florals, and the leaf motifs are spectacular. I have to honestly say that I was overwhelmed with ideas for this set. It was super hard for me to focus and decide what to make! So I decided to keep it really clean, simple and classy and do some one layer cards using the bits and pieces. Sometimes I overdo it with my cards, and it's good to come back to graphic and clean once in a while! I made three cards to share with you! If you don't have enough rewards points to get the anniversary set this time around, these cards can be replicated with any of the gorgeous Floral stamp sets from PTI!!

I used the beautiful A2 Noted Scalloped die to make a Kraft card base for this first card. then I layered with bright white cardstock. I used one of the flower elements to randomly stamp flowers, centers, and dots on the white layer. I used colors to look like sunflowers (I love sunflowers!). The sentiments for this set are in a beautiful font, and I stamped the hello in rich black ink. I accented the card with some pretty twine and a black enamel dot at the top. The white layer is affixed to the card base using foam tape.
Next up is this card with lots of white space! I love it when other stampers make cards with lots of white space. But, to be honest, it kind of freaks me out! LOL. Here's my take on a very graphic card with no layering! The only layer on this one is made with the beautiful banners dies from PTI. The hello fit perfectly onto it! (Supplies at the bottom of my post). I used bright cheerful colors of green, red, and teal. I added a few red enamel dots for accents.
I adore the gingham paper from PTI! I thought it would pair nicely with this set, too. For this card I used the Edgers Dies. These come in a set of two - one for each card orientation: vertical or horizontal. They make a beautiful edge on your card, or layers. I stamped the large round leaves onto a circle die and then stamped the cool flowers in a bright pink I added dots of blue to match the gingham paper. You can see I used a small strip of vellum under the circle for a bit more interest. A few clear gems were added at the end of the process.
