PTI May Count Down, day 2

Hello Everyone!
Here are a few more peeks from my new PTI stamp set: "est. 1776". Many of the sentiments will bring the sounds of familiar patriotic tunes to your ears... "America, the Beautiful" being one of those I keep humming to myself. SO, here are some cards with inspiration that reflect those themes.

"est. 1776": will retail for $15 and release on May 15 at the Papertrey Ink website.

>> Check out the DAY ONE count down post with a fun patriotic scrapbook page.
Details, Details!
>> PTI colors include a combo that I just loved! Enchanted Evening, Teracotta Tile, Simply Chartreuse, and Summer Sunrise. Perfect for summer without going all out on the red, white and blue theme.
>> Photos were just a google search of "Pikes Peak" a 14000+ foot peak that is a huge attraction in Colorado Springs. It was from this peak that the woman who wrote "America The Beautiful" was inspired. These mountains inspired the words... "purple mountain's majesty."
This card has a random blue card stock plus a PTI Harvest Gold to compliment. These cards are simple and focus on the beauty of our country (also Pikes Peak) to bring awe and inspiration to the card. Using an inspirational photo like this is perfect if you want to make a set of cards for someone. Simply print off 4x6 prints of the recipient's favorite location and manipulate the photos as you choose.
Have a happy night and hope you will hop on back soon for more inspirations using the "est. 1776" stamp set!

cheers, Tiffany
