Papertrey Ink Anniversary Challenges

Papertrey Ink is nearing their Fourth Anniversary. Nichole has kicked off the celebrations on her blog and so far, it's been awesome! Yesterday they did a HUGE giveaway, The Ultimate Card Kit, with 22 stamp sets, 20 dies and more. Today, her stamp designers each designed a digital tag image and you can get them all FREE on her blog HERE.

Then, you can create with one or all the tag images and post a link to your blog or gallery post to their blog for a chance to win. This time, the winner gets to work alongside Nichole to create a stamp set! You tell her what you want to see and she does the drawing/editing and such. How fun would that be?! So, I played along and here's my (first) project...

A while back I purchased some of the PTI Clear Cardstock so I thought it would be fun to make a clear card. I cut and embossed a piece of kraft cardstock with my Scrap-Mart Exclusive Oval Square Label then ran my RV04 Copic Marker around the embossed edge. After that, I added some Illuminate Smooch Ink for shimmer. Next, I cut and embossed one of the new Spellbinders Heart Circles and layered that on top. Using Spellbinders Circles I cut a small circle and stamped the hearts and I love you sentiment from PTI's Mailbox Greetings stamp set. I LOVE that set. It's soooo versatile. Actually, you can scroll down to yesterday's post to see another card I created with that set. Anyway, back to this card. After printing the tags I cut the heart tag, by Lisa Johnson, out and colored it with my Copics (RV04, RV09, G21, G24, FBG2). The label layeres were adhered inside the card while I layered the heart tag on the front. It covers up the inside sentiment perfectly. ;) I stamped the hearts and xoxo, again from Mailbox Greetings, on a ribbon from Spellbinders Lacey Pennants die set then used some PTI Twine to tie it to the ribbon. I added an array of flowers to finish it off. Here's a peek at the inside of the card...

I love the way it turned out and plan on mailing it to my Mom for Valentine's Day.

I hope to make at least one more before the end of the challenge time at 7 am tomorrow.

Hi Katie,
I love your gorgeous card. The edge detail is beautiful and you have inspired my to try a clear card soon. Good luck.
