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":
Here, I used the new Tinsel & Tags stamp set and dies.
The banner is popped up with some dimensional adhesive.
Thanks for looking!
