PTI's Sampler Square Challenge

Papertrey Ink's 9th anniversary celebration is here, and to celebrate, they have a few challenges. For this one, we were to create a card with 9, 1.5 inch squares, all done with a different technique, and mounted onto a 5.5 in square card base. So here is what I came up with, using a variety of PTI's Flower Fusion stamps.
And here are the techniques, going across from left to right: 1) ombre sponging with emboss resist 2) watercolouring-no stamps 3) Copic colouring 4) just stamps, with Glossy Accents 5) sentiment & frame 6) lifting technique with Distress Inks 7) spraying inked stamp for a watercoloured look 8) using die cut and dimensional foam 9) freehand doodling over stamps


  1. Fabulous, Kathryn! Love all the different flowers lined up like little portraits!

  2. Have missed seeing you around lately. Hope all is well. Kathryn, you interpreted the challenge as I did, and I love your results. Didn't realize we've learned so many techniques until this challenge.

  3. What a great display of all those techniques and I especially love how you used different flowers to bring this all together! Super sweet and very clever!
