Thank You

I'm back today with a card for the latest PTI anniversary challenge. Papertrey Ink is turning 3--happy birthday to one of my favorite stamp companies! The technique featured in today's challenge is embossed resist--you basically heat emboss an image and then wipe ink over it, and it will resist the ink!

I stamped a few rows of the pretty flowers from Background Basics: Petal Power with Versamark, heat embossed with clear ep and sponged Ocean Tides ink over the whole piece of card stock. Then, I stamped the "Thank You" in dark chocolate. The rest is self-explanatory, but let me know if you have any questions!

Be sure to check back this weekend--tomorrow is my blogaversary!

I also wanted to mention that my friend Jen has been blogging about her amazing journey. She won a local "biggest-loser"-style weight loss competition last spring, and is chronicling her efforts with exercise and eating right. And, there may be prizes involved! See her blog here .


"Thank You" (all PTI unless noted)
Stamps: Background Basics: Petal Power, Big & Bold Wishes
Ink: Versamark, Dark Chocolate, Ocean Tides, Antique Linen and Walnut Stain (Ranger)
Paper: Vintage Cream, Dark Chocolate
Other: Clear Detail Embossing Powder (Filigree), sponge, Threading Water punch (Fiskars), Vintage Cream twill ribbon, pearls

Pretty Card! I like the Petal Power and may have to add that to my ever growing 'must have it list'.
