It's the 25th, which not only means that there are
three months left until Christmas,
but that today is the Papertrey Ink Blog Hop, and,
as is my custom, I'm playing along.
This month, we were given this photo to inspired us...
... as well as some colour combos and sketches.
I decided to just combine the colour combos to make my cards.
Here are the cards that I made, using the sketches...
For my first card, I did use the card as a starting off point, but strayed from it just a bit.
I stamped my sentiment from Wet Paint Holidays in enchanted evening and
added a coordinating diecut.
I stamped the flowers from Bells & Boughs on some diecuts and
added some branched on my card background.
I impressed my card using my PTI woodgrain impression plate and
inked the edges in soft stone.
The patterned papers are Crate (grey polkadot) and My Mind's Eye (blue woodgrain).
For the second sketch, I used the same patterned paper and sentiment stamp set.
I diecut my banners with the Get a Handle On It die
and added some simply chartreuse felt leaves and autumn rose buttons.
For the third sketch, I added some felt poinsettia using my Pretty Poinsettia dies
with autumn rose, scarlet jewel & simply chartreuse ink.
Again, I inked my background with soft stone ink and impressed it with the
woodgrain impression plate.
I created the banner with the Get a Handle On It die &
stamped the sentiment with Wet Paint Holidays.
And, lastly, I have a fourth card to share that I made using just the photo as inspiration....
I stamped the container from Wplus9 Fresh Cut Containers in versamark
and heat embossed it in silver.
I stamped the berries using Wplus9's Fresh Cut Florals stamp set & cut it out by hand.
I cut a slit at the top of the container and inserted a few FCF diecut berries.
I stamped my sentiment using Wet Paint Holidays in scarlet jewel and heat embossed
the "blessings" in silver.
I diecut the edge using Edgers#3 & impressed the background
using the Striped impression plate.
I'm also linking these cards up to this week's Simon Says Stamp
Thanks for looking!
