Good morning friends ~ Papertrey Ink had their annual Stamp-A-Faire this weekend and for the first time I was able to play along all day, so I have lots of pictures today so grab a cup of your favorite beverage and enjoy! I'll try to make this quick and start with the first project I made:
Lizzie makes delightful felt flowers and I really enjoyed making this one. I know the petals aren't right for a sunflower but I wanted the colors to look like one. I used Happiness In Bloom dies to create the flower and leaves and Garden Variety II for the seed pack frame.
I put a pin on the back so it's a gift and a card all in one.
We planted a garden with Dawn and finally got to enjoy some stamping! The challenge was to use 8 colors, stencil & die cut. I stenciled the wreath from Post & Parcel stencils, stamped the flowers from Farmer's Market Florals and used coordinating dies as well as the Noted Scallop Squares. The colors I used were Harvest Gold, Summer Sunrise, Orange Zest, Simply Chartreuse, Pure Poppy, Ripe Avacado, Bright Buttercup, Dark Chocolate and Smoky Shadow. The sentiment is from Walk By Faith.
We watered our flowers with Betsy. My watercoloring skills have much to be desired but it is what it is. I stamped the seed pack sentiment from Garden Variety below the poppy from Botanical Blocks III. The panel is cut using Noted: Pinked A2 Vertical Dies
We made an adorable Pop-up Box Card with Lexi. I pulled out the flower and leaf dies from an older SAF Explore the 1940's and a tulip die from Flower Fusion #11. The sentiment is from Garden Variety. I also used Petite Places printed paper for each panel of the box.
Although I didn't have the materials to make my own seed paper like Heather showed us how to do on Friday night, I totally enjoyed making the gardening journal however my journal quickly went in the direction of Christmas using pre-printed papers from Post & Parcel Make-it Market kit.
All my projects ~ done! Thanks to everyone from PTI for holding such a fun even every year. I hope that someday I'll be able to be there in person to enjoy the fun with friends.
Thanks for stopping by!
