PTI October Blog Hop

Hi Everyone,

Here is my card for the PTI Blog Hop this month. I used the color combination that is Vintage Cream, Poppy, Ocean Tides and Pinefeather. The base of the card is Vintage Cream. I tried to use it on the layer that I eventually used white, but it really wasn't working very well. Oh well, I would not use this card as one of my personal cards, but I now have a few more cards to put into the OWH box.

BTW, since we are expecting a big storm next week, I am packing up my Christmas cards for OWH tomorrow and mailing them off so that I can ensure they get to North Carolina before the snow storm hits. After all this work, I don't want to take the chance they would be late.

PTI Make It Monday Challenge

Hi Everyone,

Here is my card for the MIM this week. The challenge is to stamp the inside of the card as well as the outside. I sometimes put a smaller version of the outside design on the inside. If I get really ambitious, I also stamp the envelope, that makes it really coordinated.

OperationWriteHome Blog Hop

Hi Everyone,

Here is the card I made for the World Card Making Day Blog Hop. I was trying to make something for Christmas that would be easy to replicate--and this one is definitely easy for that one. Check out Bonus Sketch #29, which is pretty close to the measurements of the card.

I used Papertrey Ink's Snowfall stamp set to create the background snowflakes. There is a narrow strip of snowflakes that can be stamped three times down the card to create the snowflakes. The trees are cut from Verve's Winter Fun Die set and the Winter Tree stamp set to match. The sentiment is also from Verve's Bright Spirit set. I love Verve stamps, they really give you a beautiful image. I've made more cards using this set. Check back next week and I'll have another beautiful Christma card made with this set.
