The morning after…

Two cups of tea…check.  Kids fed the traditional Sunday scrambled eggs…check.  Looking at the team's amazing contributions for this release…CHECK!  

As tradition holds, I thought I would share with you a few of my favorites from the team this month.  I just know they will leave you inspired!

Betsy Veldman created some stunning custom "patterned paper" using the new Flower Fusion #4 stamp set.  I love how she was able to echo the unique flower shape with the coordinating die-cut as an embellishment addition to her frame.  Not to mention her color scheme was fabulous as well.

Danielle Flanders showcased Est. 1776 with an amazing array of party decor.  I just love her creations and all the layers and detail she puts into them.  The stick pins with the little flags are just such a fabulous addition to top them off!  

Dawn McVey made this amazing graduation card using Tag-its #4 and Wonderful Words dies and coordinating Wonderful Words Additions stamp set.  She also snuck the Seed Packet die-cut envelope in there to be used as a money holder!  So, so, pretty!

Debbie Olson used the new Picket Fence die as well as all the new seed packet accessories to create this beautiful card for Mom.  She shows how you can create the seed packet look without having to use the Seed Packet Frame die with it.  So elegant and simply stunning!

Erin Lincoln created a FABULOUS miss you card by pairing up the new Road Trip set with accents from Postmarks.  The Label Basics stamp set worked in perfectly as well!  The map paper in the background from the Road Trip patterned paper pad provided the perfect back drop to all of her clever labels.  The addition of the twine was just what the project needed to finish it off!

Heather Nichols showcased Wildflower Garden while using the tried and true pastels technique…tapping pastels onto wet ink.  The soft effect this technique provides is a perfect companion with the images in this set and I love how she was able to add the sentiment from Beautiful Blessings in the soft Smokey Shadow.  Just perfectly executed.


Jessica Witty made this happy summer card to look just like a fresh watermelon slice.  I love the use of the Cane Print Impression Plate on the rind portion of the fruit.  And the "bite" made with a scalloped circle die?  AMAZING!  Lining it with acetate and adding the sentiment from Tag-its #4 is just genius!

Lisa Johnson used Flower Fusion #4 to create this simple but beautiful project.  I love how she stacked the stems to create the stair-stepped effect.  It helps to frame the sentiment perfectly!  

Maile Belles created this bright & happy card with the new Wonderful Words dies and the companion Wonderful Words Additions stamp set.  I love how she utilized the negative left behind after die-cutting the word and added the sentiment on a strip of vellum.  The addition of the rhinestone above the "i" was just the perfect finishing touch!

Melissa Phillips showcased Garden Variety and Wildflower Garden together on this beautifully vintage project.  I love how she added the rustic looking blooms to the watering can…and all those little bits of lace…just so pretty!  I also wanted to point out that she used the frame image from the set just to highlight a sentiment, not part of a seed packet.  I thought this was just brilliant!

Michelle Wooderson made this fantastic project from bots of Road Trip patterned paper along with the coordinating stamp set.  I love the way she always mixes and matches patterns like this.  And all the little details like the stapled label, the postage cancellation and the actual postage stamp.  Just an awesome execution, as always!

I hope you enjoyed all of this creative inspiration in one place!  This month it was especially difficult to narrow down my favorites from each designer!  Take some time today to create something fabulous!  Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

    I thought the creations this month were exceptional! They all delighted me. I was especially blown over by Jessica Witty’s seed pot “cakes”…even though they aren’t in this post I noted they ended up at the top of the PTI home page. I really enjoy these great ideas since I love your stamps but don’t find myself being very creative. Kudos to PTI and your fabulous team!
