Papertrey Ink Candy

This is the last of the candy's...for now.

PTI goodies are not something I've offered as candy before, they are a bit of a niche market, not the cute and cuddly stamps that lots of card makers prefer, but I LOVE them!

Good points: 
They make a vast range of stamps and coordinating dies, and they are of exceptional quality.The stamps cover every occasion you can imagine, and no-one has a bigger range of sentiments.
The dies are made from American steel and cut paper, card stock, felt, fabric etc.

Bad points:
They are like Unicorn poop. (hard to get hold of if you live outside the USA.)
You can only buy them from America, they have no other retail outlets. The postal charges are quite expensive and I ALWAYS get caught with customs charges and vat.
(I do see them for sale on Ebay UK, but the prices can get very, very high)


Please note...these are the small stamp sets!

Heart-2-Heart No11 stamps, see HERE, and the coordinating die.

Framed Out No12, see HERE, and the coordinating die.

1 pack of 24 sheets Rustic white card stock 8.5" x 11".

I know there won't be so many people that enter this candy because of what it is, so I haven't bothered with the blue froggy this time, just leave a comment and the boy will pick a name out of the hat.

Big hugs
Elaine

  12. Hello Elaine,

    I think this is a fantastic candy. I like the products from PTI very much but have never bought anything because of the high postal charges.

  15. I'm sooooo with you on this one- they are as hard to get as hens teeth especially living in Western Australia! and postage is... Well let's not go there, lol.. But I do love them, something about the clean look stamps and dies get me each time. Thanks for offering up a chance to win some... :)

  16. Hi Elaine, have you ever managed to go to America? I would love to see all the crafty shops there. The price of the postage does put me off buying things online, but if I really loved something I would pay up. It's so nice of you to give away these little gems, not sure if I could. Have a good week, we had a lovely hot May Day even up here in Aberdeenshire...Trish.

  35. Should I be ashamed? Because I actually don't know this brand and their products... Although, this candy made me curious so later on I'll be googling PTI.
    But I already love what I'm seeing here, so.....
    It's very nice of you to give this unicorn poop away ;)
