Celebrating with PTI

This is my favorite time of the year, when PTI celebrates their anniversary! They pull out all the stops, my wish list grows by leaps and bounds and my purse shrinks about three sizes. I'm including three cards in this post for their first three challenges. (Trying to play catch-up).

1st Challenge
Project Favorites
I used Danielle's sweet color combination

I used Bitty Bouquets and Banner Banter

Challenge #2
Dress Up Dolls
We are supposed to explore our closet for inspiration, but I am fashionably challenged so I turned to Pinterest and found this wonderful vintage table cloth

I used Brushed Blooms and Pure Poppy, Scarlet Jewel, Limeade Ice and New Leaf inks. After stamping the flowers and sentiment, I ran the panel through my machine with a stitched embossing plate to give it a quilted look and finished it off with some sequins.

Challenge #3
Grab & Craft
We're supposed to grab some supplies and make a card in 5 minutes.
I was already inspired by another vintage table cloth so I went with it.

I used Bitty Bouquets again, since it was already sitting on my craft table and Nostalgic Notions to make this last card.

Oh what fun this release is so far. I am IN LOVE with the new Tiny Town series coming out! Beyond excited!! Over the top! Be still, my vintage loving heart!! Can't stand it, EXCITED!

You can check out the entire celebration on Nichole's blog.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Blessings~ Birgit


  1. Fabulous cards Birgit. The first is so soft and pretty, the second is bold and pretty and the third is Springy and pretty.

  2. All 3 of these cards are just beautiful Birgit! I love the colors in your first warm and soft looking! And I had to laugh about being clothing challenged for your 2nd's no wonder we get along so well! I love that you used a vintage tablecloth instead for your inspiration, and your card turned out just those colors!! And your 3rd card is another beauty too with those fun and bright colors! Great job on all 3 challenges my friend!! :0)

  3. Wow! Could you hear me laughing out loud with your 'fashionably challenged' comment? Aren't we (who would rather buy stamps than clothes) all? Your cards are wonderful, love the red tablecloth one. Think my mom still has one of those!
    Danielle's color card is a beauty too! And the last is way too pretty to be done so fast!

  4. All three are so pretty, Birgit. Can't choose a favourite, though I do love that you used that banter die on the first one (I don't have it) and chose that colour scheme. But, then again, I also love the one that was inspired by the tablecloth. And please tell me you're wrong - WE DID NOT HAVE ONLY FIVE MINUTES TO MAKE A CARD??!! Or else I really goofed up. :( I understood we had only five minutes to gather our supplies??!!

  5. All three are fantastic and beautifully done, Birgit! I must say I love the second one, though. The colors, layout, everything. I think I need that set now!

  6. Wow!! What beautiful cards!! I LOVE that you were inspired by Vintage Table cloths!! I am fashionable challenged too. My wardrobe is boring so I had to use a scarf!!

  7. Lovely cards...great use of stamping layout/colors!

  8. Awesome cards <3 I love the colour recipe challenge, such a fun release this is

  9. All three of them are awesome! They have that special PTI look I love so much!!!

  10. Birgit, you have been nailing these PTI challenges! Great job! All your cards are lovely, but the card for challenge #2 took my breath away.

  11. Each one so pretty,Birgit! Love the banner set , the brushed blooms in that red look amazing and the framing on the last one gorgeous! I love the new town too,I wish they would come up with something I don't like:)

  12. Each one of these is gorgeous! I've always loved the card of Danielle's using that color scheme, and now I love yours, too! Your Brushed Blooms card is gorgeous, and you've definitely made me what the nostalgic notions kit.

  13. WOW! All three are fantastic, Birgit! Great designs!

  14. All three cards are gorgeous, but my favorite is your first one. I fell in love with Danielle's card using those colors. The worst part about reading blogs is seeing product in action and wishing I owned everything. Brushed Blooms has also been on my wish list. Great job with all the challenges!


Thanks so much for visiting and leaving me some love! I appreciate that you took the time to stop in and leave a comment. I read each and every one of them and I appreciate you!
