PTI November Blog Hop
Once again, I've decided to play along with the Papertrey Ink blog hop this month and once again, the challenge is an inspirational photo:
I was inspired by the photo in different ways, so I actually made three cards for the hop this month.
For the first photo, I was inspired by the gingham chair, but unforunately, I couldn't find any red gingham paper in my stash. However, I did find some green Authentique gingham and decided to use that.
I used PTI cardstock (vintage cream, pure poppy), felt (pure poppy), stamps (holiday tags 2011) & dies (damask snowflake, doily details). The patterned paper is Authentique and I trimmed the bottom edge with pinking shears.
For this next card, I took my cues from the different patterns in the photo and the bucket of greenery on the stairs:
I used PTI cardstock (vintage cream, simply chartreuse), buttons (pure poppy), felt ( simply chartreuse), stamps (Christmas labels, tremendous treats: Christmas) & dies (Christmas label, Christmas poinsettia). The patterned paper is Authentique.
And for the third card, I decided to play with my new stamps sets a little to create a one layer card that was inspired by the garland on the banister and the bucket of greenery and balls on the stairs:
I used PTI cardstock (stamper's select white), & stamps (2011 Holiday Tags, tremendous treats: Christmas).
Thanks so much for looking!
