A special THANK YOU hop for Nichole

As a lover of all things PaperTrey, and as an admirer of my idol, Nichole Heady and the team at PaperTrey, I couldn't resist participating in a very special hop this evening. A few fans got together and decided to thank Nichole and team for all the inspiration and fabulous products they provide us with every month. Here is my card filled with thanks for everyone at PTI - I'm a better stamper because of you!!

I used the new Guidelines impression plate on the Sweet Blush cardstock and then stamped 2 different images from the Guidelines set in the "grid" using Vintage Cream and Sweet Blush inks. The Giga Guidelines image was stamped with Sweet Blush on a Vintage cream circle and the Thank You (from the Anniversary set, Round and Round) was also stamped in Sweet Blush.

Using a tip I learned from Nichole, I ran a piece of Scor-tape across the card before mounting the stamped circle and covered it with Prisma Glitter. Just a little sparkle to really finish off a card!

My thanks again to Nichole and the entire PTI team - you are awesome and I will always be one of your biggest fans!

Oh my Mary! To me this card shows why PTI is such a great stamp company! Timeless classic designs, innovative tools (such as the impression plate), and versatility in their styles that in the hands of a talented stamper like yourself turns out such a STUNNING card! Very well done, Mary. I am WAY impressed!
