Papertrey Ink Design Team Favourites

The challenge this time around is to create a project inspired by the design team.   I picked Dawn, as after all, she is my Guru!

I have had the Simple Life card as above bottom right, on my Pintrest board for ages and I made this one by stamping a base of spring rain, then winter wisteria, and finished with plum pudding.  The card and paper are wisteria too.

I promise to put the winter wisteria away now and give you a break!  Thanks for popping by this weekend.

Papertrey 6th Anniversary

Goodness - is it 6 years since I saw a little ad on Split Coast Stampers saying a new stamp company was bringing out a line of stamps! I still remember the first few sets I got - Little Lady and Butterfly Kisses and I have been smitten ever since!
I don't have a lot of time this year to join in all the challenges but as it is the weekend now there isn't really an excuse.  The time difference doesn't help but I have to live with that.
This challenge is to ...

"Create some type of wrap, tag or gift packaging project that is inspired by a photo you found on Pinterest or another site."

I have had this pinned on Pintrest for ages.  I changed up the stamp set to use Funky Florals and used my front and centre die around a cut down PTI clear stamp box.

It is all ready to fill with some little note cards which I hope to finish off this weekend.

Fancy Folk Art

I am loving my latest Papertrey Ink stamps and dies - Fancy Folk Art.  I got a chance to play with them this weekend and made this set of note cards as a little thank you gift  for a friend we went to lunch with today. 
The photos aren't great as I took them quickly and forgot to change the camera setting after shooting our dogs in the snow!
First up in aqua mist and ocean tides ....

Next in my all time favourite PTI colours - sweet blush and berry sorbet .......

Harvest gold and summer sunrise ....

and if you made it this far (thank you!) the last one is lavender moon and winter wisteria ......

I hope you have had as good a weekend as we have.
