Nichole Heady is the creative goddess behind the brilliant trio that is Papertrey Ink. Briefly, I discovered paper crafting for my Japanese Gardens wedding in Oct. '05 (I made the invitations, program, fan menu, origami crane placecards, entry giftbox, exit giftbox, wish tree tags, table numbers, and sparkler/matches holders). After that I took time off crafting to have a baby, buy a house, get a dog - all that good stuff. When I decided to explore stamping two years ago, I stumbled on Heather Nichol's blog, discovered PTI, and fell down the rabbit hole :)
This is my Thank You card inspired by Nichole, bright sunshine in my life:
I finally got a cuttlebug and can use PTI dies and impression plates, I made a card that would let me get creative. I was thinking 'Golden Harvest' while I designed it.It was tricky with no harvest gold ink, but I stamped in lemon tart and kissed the edges with summer sunrise. I love it! The embossing is gold, the front of the card is linen textured and the diecut mat is canvas textured, so it's very luscious in person.
Here's to you, Nichole - we love you!!!
