Challenge: Inspired by Nature!

Hello peeps and welcome to a new challenge here at A Passion for Papertrey.  Welcome, and if you’re new to this blog then we are three crafty card makers who share a love of Papertey Ink – an American paper crafting company known for their unique stamp designs and co-ordinating colour products.  This blog offers fortnightly challenges with a different theme each time and all we ask is your entry should feature at least one Papertrey Ink product.  We will randomly draw a winner for each challenge and send that lucky person a $5 gift certificate for PTI!  Simples!

So this week we want to see your nature-inspired creations.  Now how easy could that be?  Nature could be flowers, butterflies (and other creepy crawlies!), leaves, animals etc,etc!

Here’s what we came up with:

Caryn:  One of my favourite colour combos of all time is Pure Poppy and Aqua Mist.  This gave me the starting point for my card and so I went for a set I haven’t used in a long time – it was long overdue a dusting off!  Althought I used Blooming Button Bits – I didn’t actually use any buttons!  I went for flower heads from Beautiful Blooms instead!!


{Have a Fabulous Day}
Stamps: Blooming Button Button Bits, Beautiful Blooms (PTI), Just Fabulous (Clearly Besotted)
Ink: Tide Pool (Hero Arts), Pure Poppy, True Black, Scarlet Jewel (PTI)
Cardstock: Stampers Select White, Pure Popy, Patterned Paper pack (Aqua Mist)
Washi tape (??), Wink of Stella Clear brush pen

Here’s Kate: “My home office is a conservatory that opens out onto my garden, and at the moment it’s so lovely to listen to the birds sing and see them in the garden. So I was totally inspired to make a card with birds on it! I needed to whip up a wedding card for a friend so I took the ‘tie the knot’ theme literally and gave the knot to my pair of love birds! (Apologies again for the poor image quality, my camera is still at the camera hospital so I’m using a very poor substitute!)

{Congratulations} Stamps: Happy Trails/Enjoy the Ride (PTI) Ink: Enchanted Evening/Versafine Black Card: Grey (SU), White (PTI) Other: Bakers Twine (American Crafts)

Can’t wait to see how nature inspires you!
