October Blog Hop



Hey all!  So this months challenge over at the Papertrey Blog Hop is to use 6 color ways that dn't fit the traditional Christmas color themes and make a Christmas card.  I started with the Royal Velvet, Enchanted Evening, Raspberry Fizz and Blueberry Sky.  Now what I did was make very similar cards with a few twists with several of the color options. I started with the Avery Elle Circle It stamp set and stamped the bachgroud dots in white pigment ink. Then stamped the snowman from Hero Arts in Enchanted Evening ink on a Blueberry Sky cardstock and white PTI cardstock. Die cut the snow man and colored with colored pencils in the color theme. I stamped and die cut the greeting also on whited cardstock. Popped it up with foam tape.  Added a few sequins for sparkle.  Thanks for stopping by,

Inspired Challenge


Papertrey has a challenge to use some of their achrived color and sketch cards.  This card uses both the color and sketch card below.


Thanks for stopping by, Sentimentally Sue.

Watercolored Hello

Hello!  This card started with a piece of watercolored card stock I had laying on my stamp desk. The Hello was also just laying on my desk from another project.  It was cut from white card stock and the Wonderful Words: Hello from Papertrey Ink. I cut the hello down and mounted it over the water colored scrap.  Then punched the holes on the ends and got my bakers twine ready in yellow and orange.  I took a piece of Orange Zest card stock from PTI and did a partial die cut with the Beautiful Butterflies set also from PTI. Stamped a few butterflies with white pigment ink from Stampin Up and mounted it all on a white card base.  
Popped the greeting uo with foam squares and tied the twine around the card.  I am going to enter this in Virginia's Die cut challenge, AAA cards water color challenge and PTI's Partial Die cut challenge.
Thanks for dropping by for a visit,

A Glowing, Watercolored Partial Die Cut

Hey all!  I wanted to create a fun card with a few challenges.  I started with a piece of water color paper and using Stampin Up watercolor crayons I created a circle with various shades of yellow and orange.  I then used a Spellbinders circle die and did a partial die cut over the watercoloring.  Using the Tim Holtz stapler to hold the cut portion back. Stamped the greeting from Papertrey Ink in Palette Noir ink. Then I made a card base with Summer Sunrise card stock from PTI and used Glossy Effects the hold my glitter in the center of the sun. This will be entered in the challenges below.  Thanks for stopping by,
