PTI Stamp A Fair Red Carpet Challenge

I am sad to say the 2015 Papertrey Stamp A Fair is over.  I look forward all year to Stamp-A-Fair.  Below is a photo of all the cards I made during this event. 

Thank you Papertrey Ink!  I learned many new techniques.

8-unconventional-materials-challenge


This challenge called for using unconventional supplies to create a card from items found in a hardware store (could not spend more than $10.00).

The above receipt shows what I purchased - interesting enough I only used three of the items I purchased (color samples, white thumb tacks and cork pads.

The flowers were stamped and embossed on a part of a paint sample, a white thumb tack serves as the center of the flowers, and the cork pads are under the thumb tacks and add a height or dimension to the flowers.
