It's now Monday morning because it's 12:10 AM. I made this card for Papertrey Ink's 9th Anniversary Paper Crafting Alphabet Challenge. Each letter of the alphabet had a specific task. Using the first three letters of your first or last name, you were to make a card with those 3 specifics. I have included the list below so you can see how fun it is.
I used my first name which gave me the following directions:
A add a border
N try a new product that you purchased but haven't used yet
G add a touch of gold.
The first two were no problem. The gold touch is not something I usually use on my cards so it was a stretch for me!
For my border, I used the Papertrey Ink stamp set "Tin Types." It was so easy to use! I stamped it once in brown ink and then moved the design to stamp it again in gold ink. I love the little pattern it made for a border at the bottom of my card.
For my new product, I had never used my Papertrey Ink stamp set "Background Basics: Tin Types" or the 2015 Anniversary stamp set "Petite Pots." You're going to see a lot more cards with these stamp sets, I promise! The tag was a PTI die I hadn't gotten to use yet called "Tag Sale: Quilted Die." As you know, the reason I have all of these new goodies is because I haven't been able to stamp since August 2015 because of all of my health problems.
For my touch of gold, I achieved it by stamping my border in gold ink and including gold ink in my ribbon on the tag.
I did sooooo much more than usual stamping 3 cards in 1 night, my arms and back are killing me! The only way I was able to do it was with God giving me the strength and my parents getting the products I needed for me!
