Papertrey Ink Anniversary Celebration! {Stamp Designers} and a FS card

Three years ago, I was sitting on pins and needles waiting for Nichole to announce my addition to her Papertrey Family. Somedays, I still have to pinch myself. I cannot believe that I am part of this amazing ride. I have learned so much about design over the past few years and find my style changing a little bit with each stamp set that I design. What is amazing to me, after all this time, is that I can create a stamp set...and once it goes to Nichole and the design team - they bring the stamps to life....that is what makes the customers gasp and squeal with delight!

I am so thankful to be a part of Papertrey. It is so awesome to go into craft stores, flip through a magazine and see my stamp sets in action!

Nichole has the Anniversary Celebration down to a science - and tonight's {spotlight} is on the Stamp Design Team. There were a few changes in the team this year! Maile Belles is the new member of the team, so be sure to stop by her blog {simply stamped} and give her a warm welcome!

The team was challenged to come up with a tag for customers to download. Guess what you could potentially win? {go on....guess} The winner will have the opportunity to be a Papertrey Ink Guest Stamp Designer and work hand-in-hand with Nichole to help conceptualize a set they have always wanted to see come to life. SHAZAM!

{Here} is a link to the download! FUN STUFF!

Here is my creation, which is also based on a card by {3bugs&me}. Lori's card {Tea Party} really caught my eye.

I changed the colors & the stamp (obviously).

White base with a layer of a aqua mist, embossed with the giga guidelines impression plate. I used a variety of punches to create the main image, one it was printed on sweet blush paper. There is a white layer punched with the martha lace edge punch and a sweet blush layer die cut with the papertrey eyelet lace die. The main image was punched with the 1.75 circle punch. That was mounted on a circle of aqua mist and then on a punched scallop circle of white cardstock. The main image is on dimensionals. I put a nice big aqua mist polka dot ribbon on the card! LOVE IT!

I created this image for the Papertrey Ink anniversary celebration because I {LOVE} the sentiment. I feel like I was living an ordinary life when I met Todd twenty five years ago. Now...we are in the midst of a fairytale. Just like in love, my job with Papertrey seems like a fairytale dream. Thank you for sharing the dream with me!

I love the way you've repeated the circles several times in your design - even the scalloped edge is half circles. The colors you chose are beautiful and you've retained a simplicity of look that is very nice.
