I finally used my new PTI stamps!

And I love them, so pretty!  I ordered 2 sets, and I used the Through the Trees for these two cards.  They are almost identical, but I used 2 slightly different techniques.

For this first one, I stamped the tree trunk in Rich Cocoa ink by Memento, and then I stamped the leaves with Tim Holtz Peeled Paint and Mustard Seed.  I put the yellow ink on first and then dabbed the green on top, and then stamped.  Then I heat embossed with clear powder.  I couldn't find the right shade of yellow paper to stamp my sentiment on, so I stamped on white paper and then colored with the Mustard Seed ink.  Perfect ;)  This background paper is old stuff by Colorbok, I believe.

For this one, I stamped the leaves in the yellow, and then stamped them again in the gree, but slightly off the yellow ones underneath.  Then I also heat embossed with clear powder.  The background is a Hero Arts woodgrain stamp with another Tim Holtz ink, Weathered Wood.

The rest of the supplies:
Nestabilities, Labels 1
Fiskars burder punch, Apron Lace
PTI twine
misc buttons
Memento Tuxedo Black ink

Oh, and the flowers were some I made from scraps, with the help from this video ;)
