Today’s cards: a PTI party (8-13)

Hello all!

The time has come. I finally get to share few projects with Papertrey Ink’s August release. Yay!

I’ve got three cards for you today

Meet card #1.


This one uses the Scattered Showers Additions set. I cheered when I saw this set.  It has some really great sayings for  encouragement and “missing you” cards. Plus it’s appropriate for my life. We get a lot of rain here. 😉

The button, ribbon, cardstock and ink (Lavender Moon, Plum Pudding and New Leaf) are also from PTI.

Meet card #2.


This one uses the Autumn Abundance set. Great set for a color lover.

I also threw in a little Polka Dot Basics 2 stamping action in for good measure.

I have a little secret on the ribbon. It is actually PTI’s Enchanted Evening Swiss Dot Satin Ribbon. I just used the back side.

Meet card #3.


This one uses the new and very pretty Fall Elegance set. The flourish, words and ornament are all from that set.

The button started out plain.

I stamped the ornament on it with Fresh Snow ink. After that, I tossed a little clear embossing powder on top and heated it up with my embossing gun. I let the button sit for about a minute and then used it like any old embellishment. Easy peasy.

Well, that’s what I have for now. Thanks for stopping by!

Tune in tomorrow for some more Papertrey Ink cards. I went overboard with this release and made a bunch more cards to share with you. I had a hard time picking just three to share with you.

And be sure to check out Nichole’s blog to see all the great things she has done with this release. Plus, she’s got links to all her  design team members that show off their projects.

Have a great day!

  1. ok. you can tell I am up WAY too late if I am the first one to comment. But these babies are great! i am excited for this release (but of course I am always excited). I love the layout of the last one. something about that big button and such. plus the ribbon on the second, genius my friend AND you threw in some string and polka dots which are my fav. and the first one… just can’t help but smile at purple wellies.

    can’t wait to see what else you have created.

  2. Gotta love what you did with the new sets, I like cards two and three the best, although all of them are so cute! And stamping on a button, I did not know you could do that, what a neat thing to share!

  3. Fabulous cards…love your idea about embossing those large buttons! You’ve opened up a whole new vista for me….Thanks!!

  4. Great cards! I love those sweet little boots; Having moved away, I am homesick for Oregon’s rain 🙂
    My favorite card, though, is the last one with those flourishes. Wonderful treatment of the button, and I like how you designed the placement of the ribbon and sentiment. Thanks for sharing.
