Papertrey Ink October Blog Hop

It's the 25th, which means that there are two months left until Christmas.
Have you started your shopping yet?

It also means that today is the Papertrey Ink Blog Hop. :)

This month, we were given six colour combos to inspire us to make holiday cards.
And I used each one.

Here are the six cards that I made, using the colour combos...




For my first card, I used a combination of Betsy Veldman's dies -- 
both the Shaker Shapes: Square dies for my frame & the Tinsel & Tag Kit dies
to create my little scene.
The banner is also from Tinsel & Tags, as well as the fun snow I added.




For this card, I used some polka dot patterned paper (sorry, I don't know the brand!)
and paired it with PTI's Bells & Boughs stamp set and dies.
I used the rock & roll technique for inking up my poinsettias.
I die cut my border from New Leaf card stock using PTI's Heart border die.
The sentiment was stamped with Wet Paint Holidays.




For the third colour combo, I used some Heidi Swapp patterned paper as my background.
Again, I used stamps & dies from the Tinsel & Tags kit, which I layered onto a Mat Stack 4 diecut.




Here, I used the Shaker Shapes: Snow Globe and paired it with PTI's City Scene.
I had fun masking and stamping my little winter scene!
I added some glitter to my snow globe.
For my sentiment, I die cut the "merry" using my Wet Paint Holidays Cuts.
The "Christmas"  is from the Sparkle & Shine Holiday stamp set.
The stripe along the bottom is from the County Fair MIM.




Here, I used the Shaker Shapes: Ornament dies. 
I die cut my "sparkle" die cut from some silver shimmer card stock.
The sentiments are from the Sparkle & Shine Holidays stamp set.
I used some Lawn Fawn twine at the top.

Here's a close up of the shimmery "Sparkle":



And lastly....



Here, I used the new Tinsel & Tags stamp set and dies.
The banner is popped up with some dimensional adhesive.

Thanks for looking!
