{Spoiler Alert} 2010 Anniversary Set

This post is long overdue. But, finally, here are my creations using the latest 2010 Papertrey Ink Anniversary set... Botanical Silhouettes.

If you are unfamiliar with the Papertrey Ink Anniversary set, this exclusive set is one that is not available for purchase. Based on PTI purchases during 2010, customers were able to earn themselves a free set or two. Be sure to keep an eye on Nichole Heady's blog for more info.

Using Botanical Silhouettes I created a simple card set...
Using a color combo of Pure Poppy, Hawaiian Shores, Ripe Avocado & True Black. I created two card bases (measuring 5 1/2" X 4") one from Pure Poppy cardstock and the other from Hawaiian Shores.I then stamped each card base with the grouped stem images, along the base, in Versamark ink.To create a focal panel, I started by die cutting a Mat Stack #5 from Rustic White cardstock and trimmed off the bottom edge. Then stamped the grouped stem images twice, along the bottom edge, in Ripe Avocado. Stamped two flowers in the coordinating ink and a sentiment in true black. For this Pure Poppy card, I embellished the flowers with a red rhinestone center. Then attached the focal panel with dimensional adhesive. Again, I stamped this Hawaiian Shores card base with the grouped stem images in Versamark ink.Stamped the flowers in Hawaiian Shores ink and then embellished with black rhinestones.

Once I had the design of the first card figured out, the second one came together in no time at all. I'd love to assemble an even larger set of these cards, creating a whole rainbow of colors!

Anyways, I hope you've enjoyed this peek at this exclusive Anniversary Set. Thanks for stopping by!
