PTI December 2016 Blog Hop

12/26/16 ** Nicole has found a fun and cheery non-
traditional colors Christmas wrap photo for this months
Blog Hop. You could go in all directions from this
intriguing photo. Being that I was pressed for time
this month...I chose to create something simple. I used
washi tape to capture most of the colors for a background.
Then used an oval die and dropped in a Christmas tree 
from PTI All thru the House plus a die cut (and layered) -
PTI "thanks" die. Finished off the card with foam mount
a gold star, rhinestones, and some pink twine. 

DETAILS:  PTI All thru the House, "Thanks" die, PTI
Aqua Mist dye ink, Tropical Teal cardstock.
Misc: Washi tape, Lawn Fawn stitched oval die, clear
embossing powder, gold yardstick, pink twine.

Sorry about the same boring layouts...I still haven't got the hang of my
uncooperative "ap" to change things up a bit. :(

PTI MIM: Holiday Photo Cards

12/19/16 * Ashley has a cute idea for this weeks MIM!
She uses a photo and some clear cardstock to create her
own photo beautiful greeting card.
   I like the idea of using clear cardstock as an overlay for
a card and had fun creating my own design! The hardest
part was finding a good photo of all three of our cats together.
Ha, ha!

DETAILS: PTI What the Doodle Snowflakes, Jingle All the
Way Die set, clear cardstock.     Misc: Paper Source Cover
(Pool), Stampin-Up scalloped border punch, silver embossing
powder, silver sequins.

PTI Create Along With Us, December 2016

I selected Kay Miller's anniversary card for my inspiration for this month's Create Along with Us challenge. I love her use of bright
and cheery colors along with her clean style!

I created my own heart wreath by piecing together 3 stamp sets ... 
a lot of work but the resulting image paid off. I really was trying to make an anniversary card too but never seem to have the right sentiments in my stash (very frustrating). TFL ;)

Details: PTI stamp/dies - Scene It: Celebration, Christmas Faith, Tag Sale Quilted Die, Sunshine & Rainbows Mini kit, Simple Gift Bow die.   PTI Modern Background stencil.   PTI Dye inks - Hibiscus Burst, Raspberry Fizz, Summer Sunrise, Hawaiian Shores, Aqua Mist, Amethyst Allure, Blueberry Sky, Spring Rain, Green Parakeet, New Leaf, Ripe Avocado.

PTI MIM: Embossed and Outlined Backgrounds

Betsy hosts this weeks Make It Monday with an interesting
challenge! She uses embossed stamped images and then
outlines them with Copic markers making the images "pop"
even more.
Here is my version of Betsy's technique...the card came out surprisingly simple (for me) but I like the end result. ;)

Details: PTI Shine/Fancy Pants Holiday Sentiments, PTI Pure
Poppy dye ink, silver/white embossing powders, Copic sketch
B00 Frost Blue, Spellbinders square die, Paper Source Cover
stock (Red/Pool), silver sequins, 1" silver organza ribbon.

PTI MIM: Double Layer Tags

11/28/16 * Dawn McVey shows us how to create
some double layered tags just in time for Christmas!
Love the red/aqua/green color scheme she uses...
seems to be very popular this season. :)
I created some snowman tags with Betsy's Holiday Hugs
mini kit and PTI's new Basic Cut Tag/Window Cut Tag for
the layering. I used patterned paper to die-cut the hats
making the assembly process much easier than stamping
each individually. 
I will be all set to wrap when I get there...still have some
shopping to do. ***TFL
