Papertrey Favorites

It's anniversary time for Papertrey Ink! Year number 4 for one of my favorite companies. The design team is celebrating by posting our favorite project from the last year. And you will not believe the prize. It is beyond sweet. Nichole is giving away *everything* you need to create *all* the cards. Every. Single. One. It's practically the holy grail of PTI, people. My contribution to the favorites list? Obviously, you know I love the stamps. But this year... I've branched out into the world of dies. I'm such a quick and easy stamper. I'm already such a slowpoke that if something is going to take a while, it's going to take me twice as long as all you regular speed people. So I've always steered clear of using a lot of tools, etc... preferring to keep it quick with the stamps. But this year, I ventured into the world of dies. And I *love* them. LOVE. Especially this set I used here...

The By the Numbers collection. You know I love the basics. Items that I can use over and over again on a variety of projects. Classics... the things that never go out of style. And this is SO one of those. And it goes right along with a stamp set? What more could a girl want? So into my favorites goes Big Birthday Wishes, too. Head on over to Nichole's blog to enter the big contest. It's BIG. BIG BIG. And, before I go... can I just say how happy I am to be a part of PTI? I know how much all of you love PTI because I'm the same way... waiting to see what's coming up each month... thinking of things I'd love to see done in the perfect PTI style... opening my front door with excitement to see if there's a box waiting for me. Thanks so much for stopping by to visit and enjoy PTI with me :)

I love simple, and you have shown us how to do that with your style. I am very busy and probably everyone else and your style is what I tend to lean towards when I am in a hurry. I have followed your blog for a long time and glad to see you joined the PTI team!

Great card. I love how you've used the green on the inside to show through to the outside of the card. The flower shaped button is too cute!

Krista said...

ssshhh!! Jess. don't tell, but this was one of my favorites too! loved the embossed numbers and large number die cut from the front of the card. not to mention the simple color scheme and use of the fillable frame only half stamped on the inside. all things i plan on trying soon!

When I saw the previews for the numbers and the impression plate, I was not terribly impressed. But then, I saw your card and decided I was wrong. Your card is "just right"
