PTI Stamp Designers' Favourites



Are you ready to celebrate day 3 of Papertrey Ink's anniversary countdown?

I am absolutely THRILLED to announce that I am returning to Papertrey Ink as a stamp designer. As many of you know I had stamp sets released through PTI last year but stepped away to commit to other design work. This year I am fully commited to sharing projects using a variety of my PTI stamp sets (old and new) so stay tuned.

Today, each of the stamp designers was asked to share their favourite PTI stamp set. The 2008 designers were asked to share their favourite stamp set that they personally designed, while the new designers (congrats girls!) are picking their fav PTI set. I am sure it comes as no suprise to learn that my favourite set is Wise Owl. Wise Owl was the very first set I designed for PTI and it was also the very last set that I shared for my 2008 Urban Design release. What I really love about this set are the endless possibilities--the fun owl faces, the mini owls mixed with the large owls, the flowers, the fun whimsical greetings mixed with the wise greetings and so much more!

Here is a quick summary of some of the projects I have created using Wise Owl

Examples: Flower Fun, Owl Card, Out for Publication Sign
Out of the box examples: Clock, Reindeer, Ghost, Home Decor, Barrettes, Necklace

And here's a new project: A mini note book.





I'll be providing a full tutorial on Thursday so make sure you check back.

Supplies
Stamp Set(s): Wise Owl (Urban Design) by PTI
Cardstock: Real Black by PTI, Poppy Red by PTI

Patterned Paper: October Afternoon
Ink: Dark Chocolate by PTI, Real Black by PTI, Snow Cap by Ranger
Accents: Spring Rain Gingham Ribbon by PTI, Embroidery Floss

Tools: Copic Ciao Markers
, Corner Rounder by EK Success, Computer Paper

Now, are you ready for a GIVEAWAY???? Leave a comment on my blog now until midnight EST February 4th and one person will be chosen randomly to win Wise Owl. The winner will be listed here and on Nichole's anniversary blog post here after 12PM EST on February 4th. Good Luck! Make sure you check out the other stamp designer blogs as each of them is also giving a set away today!
