HUGE Announcement!! Papertrey Ink!!!


Hello my friends, This is my fourth blog post today! But this is one that I was not about to let slide. I got an email Sunday a week ago from Nichole Heady the owner of Papertrey Ink inviting me to be on the PTI design team. OH MY GOODNESS! I was speechless, breathless, and totally blown away! Papertrey Ink has been one of my favorite stamp companies for years, and it is truly a dream come true to be asked to be on the design team. I still can't believe it. I keep telling myself over and over again that's it's real! haha! I am beyond excited!!

I will be joining the team for the October release and I couldn't be more thrilled!!

To celebrate this momentous occasion I made a card using the Tree Tops Glisten stamp set and dies from their September release!


I sponged a little bit of blue dye ink for the background and used the largest wave from the Cover Plate Waves die to make my snowy hill. I glued this down flat and then added all the trees with foam tape.



I stamped the sentiment and cut it out with the matching die, then cut three more die cuts out and layered them for dimension. 




I added a few Pretty Pink Posh 4mm clear sequins for last!

Supplies:
Tree Tops Glisten
Tree Tops Glisten Dies
Cover Plate: Waves die

Thanks so much for stopping by today and sharing in my joy! I am still just so excited I don't know if I can stand it! I can't wait to share my first projects when the PTI countdown begins!

Kay :)
