PTI 9th Anniversary Paper Crafting Alphabet Challenge

Hello, Friends!

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!

Happy Stamping!
