How many of you love Papertrey Ink? I adore them! I can't get enough of their stamps and dies! And don't they have the most talented group of ladies on their design team!?!? I swoon over their projects! Nearly every month I find myself buying more goodies from Papertrey Ink! How about you? The funny thing is, for all the Papertrey Ink tools I have, I don't use them nearly as much as I should! But I plan to to turn over a new leaf and so a couple weeks ago I pulled out the Garden Variety, Strawberry Patch and Tiny Tag sets and went to work to create this card.
Oh boy did I have a ball! I got to color with Copics and use pretty stamps, paper, ribbon and even some burlap! Sometimes I think my best work happens when I make time to play!
I'm always thrilled when I do a half way decent job with Copic markers. Have you tried them? Not easy are they? And wow, there are so many paper crafters in this industry who blow me away with their Copic work!
I think one of the reasons I love Papertrey Ink stamps so much is because of the detailed images a set includes like these garden tools.
I believe I can find a way to use tiny tags on every project!
Well, I hope to keep playing with my beloved Papertrey Ink toys! Did you see they started sneak peeks for the June's releases already? Oh no! I already spied a sun ray stamp I like! Does anyone have a pair of those blinders they put on horses! ;)
Before I close...I'd like to tell you about a new cupcake recipe I tried yesterday! :)
These sweet little cakes are called Brown Sugar Cupcakes with Cinnamon Cream Cheese Frosting and they are made by Cate's World Kitchen. And ooh la la are they lovely! If you enjoy cake that's not too rich, and if you love cream cheese frosting, this is one for you to try!
