PTI Stamp-a-faire: Limited Supply Challenge

Ahhhh, the weekend I've been waiting a year for!  Last year was Papertrey Ink's first annual Stamp-a-faire event.  It was held in Cincinnati and I was so fortunate to be able to attend.  It was awesome getting to meet in person all the wonderful PTI Gals whose blogs I read on a weekly basis!  I am so thankful that I had (and took) the opportunity to go last year, because ...

This year's Stamp-a-faire event was held online!  The PTI Gals did a fabulous job this year with all of the tutorials, videos, challenges, and forum chatting.  It was even better than I'd expected!  If you would like to check it out for yourself, you can find out all about it here.

The third challenge for the day was the Limited Supply Challenge.  Nichole provided a list of supplies we were allowed to use: Stamper's Select White, Hawaiian Shores, Aqua Mist, Simply Chartreuse card stocks, Hawaiian Shores Bitty Dot ribbon, Simply Chartreuse buttons, one floral stamp set of our choosing, and any inks, dies, twine, or glitter that we wanted.  Our challenge is to utilize only the supplies allowed to replicate one of the DT's projects or create one of our own.  If you would like to play along, you can find out all about it here.

I found this to be the most difficult of the challenges today - go figure!  I decided to use the Sweet Life stamp set.  I used Aqua Mist, Hawaiian Shores, and Ocean Tides inks on my die cut flowers.  I used New Leaf and Ocean Tides inks on my die cut leaves.  The sentiment is stamped in Smokey Shadow, which is now my new go-to for sentiments!

I adhered the focal image to my card base with removable adhesive so that I can put it on a panel of Aqua Mist impressed with the Giga Guidelines IP after the challenge is over.  ;)

Thanks to the PTI Gals for all the great inspiration they have provided today!

All supplies are from PTI.

Thanks ever so much for stopping by!
