More PTI Goodness...

I know this post is verrrry late, but we are being pummeled by a snow storm, so I got to sleep in, the kids are home bugging me...etc...etc.
One of the reasons I love using Papertrey Ink's stamps is because they allow me to simplify my card making tremendously. Their clean, simple designs steer me in a totally different direction from my usual cards which is refreshing for me. I'm always afraid that my projects will get 'stale', or too similar after a while. So this is why I like to mix it up by using a different style of stamps/techniques, and PTI stamps are my favorite for that very purpose!
This birch tree stamp is from their newest release, 'Through the Trees'. Now, I LOVE trees, funky trees, elegant trees, primitive trees. They are so beautiful to me, so getting this set was a no brainer. I brayered a piece of card stock with PTI's Aqua Mist and Blush inks, then stamped/embossed the trees in white over it. Of course, the sentiment fits perfectly for the card, peace and beauty, exactly the two words I would use to describe the feeling this card gives me!
Fitting day for this card too, the snow is a thick, white blanket outside and all is still and peaceful...

Thanks for visiting, I'm off to shovel some of the stuff!
