Papertrey Ink Create Along with Us


It is time for Create Along with Us: June 2017 over at Papertrey Ink.

We are asked to make something that caught out eye during release week.

I was inspired by this card from Heather Nichols:

I began with PTI Stamper Select White card stock cut to 3.75x5. I clear embossed the stars all over using the star from Stamping' Up Wonders of Christmas. 

I recently got several of the new Tim Holtz Distress Oxide ink pads. I blended Fossilized Amber, Peeled Paint and Worn Lipstick over the card in a similar pattern to Heather's card. The ink seemed to be very creamy and blended well. 

I die cut Celebrate from PTI Good Times die three times with white card stock. Then I embossed "It's Your Day" in gold on black paper. 

I added some gold twine from American Crafts DIY shop (I love the sparkle on this stuff!) and mounted it all on Simply Chartreuse and Raspberry Fizz.

Thanks for the inspiration, Heather Nichols and Papertrey,  I can't wait to see the whole release!

Have a great day!


  1. I picked the same card of Heather's to create a card. Yours is so pretty. I loved those colors.

  2. Great job matching your card to Heather's card. Very pretty!

  3. Heather's colorful card struck me too and you definitely did an awesome job re-creating her card...SOOOO pretty!! :0)

  4. Great birthday card! What a perfect card as inspiration

  5. So pretty! Those Distress Oxide inks sure are easy to blend aren't they?! Lovely!
