Card 2 for Mom and Dad

Well, I am trying to send at least one card to my mom and dad a month. This card uses the stamp set from Papertray Ink, Life. I loved what I saw the designers do with this set, but I just can't seem to "work it" like they do. So here is what I came up with.

All in all I kinda like the card....not one of my all time favorites, but at least I got in there and worked with this set. Trying to use it more and more.


Stamps: Life from Papertrey Ink, Sentiment Stamp Inkadoodle
Paper: PTI
Ink: Frayed Burlap-Distress Ink, New Leaf-PTI, SU-Really Rust, Pumpkin Pie

Snail Mail

Here is a card that I sent to my mom and dad. Granted it is a more girly card but I like it just the same. I used Papertrey Ink Vintage Picnic and colored it with Copic markers. Sure wish someone in my area would teach a class using these!!! I also used the Polka Dot basics stamped in New Leaf. I seem to be famous for making cards but not sending them. Trying to get out of that habit. LOL

Stamps - PTI Vintage Picnic, Polka Dot Basics, Text Style
Ink: PTI New Leaf, Tim Holtz Vintage Photo
Paper: PTI-Blush, Pattern Paper is K&Company
Misc: A little bit of ric rac I had laying around and then I smooshed some glitter around it as well for a little added pizzaz! Spellbinders Circles
