Well, it's a bittersweet day today on my blog . . . I have been privileged to be on the Papertrey Ink design team since the company began seven years ago, and I have loved all of the wonderful stamp sets and accessories that I have been able to work with through the years. Nichole Heady is one of the most talented designers that I've ever met. Hardly a month passes that I don't see what she has done with the new releases and think, "WOW--I wish I'd thought of that!"
So, it was with mixed emotions that I realized I needed to step down as a Papertrey Ink designer this year. Nichole, Jane, and Julie have been such a blessing to me, and I will always be thankful for the opportunities that I have had with PTI. We have had some huge health challenges in our extended family for the past two years, however, and I am needing more time to meet needs at home. I will still be using many Papertrey Ink stamp sets, no doubt. After all, who can resist them after that fabulous monthly countdown? :-}
On to today's card: I used the PTI Doodlie Do stamp set, colored with Copic markers, along with the Spiral Notebook Page die for my focal image. Since I was coloring in the local library while my son studied, I didn't get a picture of my markers all lined up; but I did write down the colors that I used: RV21, Rv23, RV25, RV29, Y15, Y19, YR65, YR18, YG01, YG17, and BG10 along with the Colorless Blender for the pale blue in the background. On the card front I used Background Basics: Twinkle as well as Background Basics: Stitching. That sweet little white lacy border cut is done with one of my favorites, the Filigree Border Die. Cardstock is Stamper's Select White, Limeade Ice, Orange Zest, and Raspberry Fizz.I did a bit of stitching "just because"--how does one stamp without a sewing machine? ;-)
