Papertrey Ink - Stamp a Faire 2015

PTI´s Stamp a Faire 2015 at Nicole Heady´s blog is coming to an end and i was able to make three cards for their challenges. I would like more done but unfortunately lacked the time.


But the last challenge I can do yet:
Share photo of yourself  wearing your creations from today ! 

I've just asked my husband to take a picture of me. Very quickly without any frills. It is not the prettiest.... not styled the hair, with glasses instead of contact lenses .... so what. We are indeed among us, right ?!

Greetings to the whole PTI team from Germany !
  You are doing a great job - please keep it up !

Papertrey Ink Stamp a Faire 2015

I was able to make another card for the PTI Stamp a Faire 2015 over at Nicole Heady´s blog. I´ve opted for Danielle´s twine challenge:

Create a project featuring twine. I´m choosing option Nr. 1: Wrap twine around a card where two patterns meet to create a border.


Using "Birthday Bash Sentiments" and the Hexagon Cover Plate

Papertrey Ink - Stamp a Faire 2015

Stamp a Faire 2015 over at Nicole Heady´s blog and i´m glad i find some time to join the second Challenge: 

Create a card using one of the card patterns from the DT


I decided to go with Pattern No. 5:


 I´ve used "Dot Spots" for the background and from "Wet Paint III" is the die and sentiment. 
Since i don´t have many masculine birthday cards in my stash, i thought that would be a great opportunity to fill it up.

Papertrey Ink - Stamp a Faire 2015

It´s Stamp-a-faire 2015 over at Nicole Heady´s blog. What a huge event - i totally love it !! I'll have no time for all the challenges so I start directly with the first:

Create your own wedding project utilizing nothing but the color white.
  You are allowed to use a neutral ink color (black, gray, brown, etc...) to add a stamped sentiment.


I´m using a lovely Stamp Set called "Happy Trails" and also the matching dies.

The pigeons are white embossed on vellum and for the sentiment i´ve used Silver embossing powder. I´ve added some pearls and used 3d dots to get a little dimension on my White on White Wedding card.
