The Old Is New Again

Hello PTI friends~ I was able to make a couple of cards using PTI's next challenge to use a set that hasn't seen ink yet, or one that hasn't been used in a while. I'm embarrassed to say that I've had the set All About You for a really, really long time and have never inked it up until today. To be honest, I kind of forgot I had it (long story). Anyway, here's a card I made using that set:

Since there's no dies for this set, I cut the flower part out using a Spellbinders Scalloped Circle die and stamped my flower image onto that. I stamped the main sentiment and three of the accompanying sentiments on a layered banner. I made it check-box style by selectively inking a square from another company's stamp set and using the check mark that went with it.
I think I'll keep this set on my craft table for a while and give it more love.
ETA: The leaves are from MFT and they're called Layered Leaves.
Here's a couple more cards using Vintage Picnic, which I hadn't inked up in a very long time.

I made a masculine card and a feminine one using this set.
I also used Topiary Trio and Boutique Borders Father for the sentiment.

Are you having fun with all the daily challenges? I'm doing my best to keep up with them and am glad to spend extra time in my crafty space doing it.
Thanks for visiting! Blessings~ Birgit

All three cards are p-e-r-f-e-c-t! Are the leaves on the All About You card from PTI? Would love to know the name/company?

Very pretty cards! Love the flowers on the feminine cards and the Father's Day card has a wonderful scene with trees, shrubs, and picnic basket!:-)

Three beautiful cards again! You've got lots of cool dies that aren't PTI...like the leaves and the trees. Great scene for Fathers Day card!

Thanks for your sweet comment, Keri. The leaves are from MFT. They're called Layered Leaves. Hope you find this response to your question.

Great cards-love the flower and the manly card reminds me of summer as I see snow outside my window:) The last card is so summery-well done!

Love all three! I was surprised how well your scalloped die went with that flower! Love the check box idea, and the lovely picnic scene!

A wonderful collection of cards for this challenge! I, too, am enjoying spending a little, ok, a lot more time in my craft room working on these challenges. February is a slow month for me so I am happy to have the time!

We have all been there--buying something fabulous and then forgetting to use it. I forgot I had vintage picnic until I saw your card just now. Love your selection of cards.
