Peace On Earth PTI Blog Hop

Hey there Blog Hop fans! Time for another Papertrey Ink Blog Hop.  This month we are basing our creations on some non-traditional holiday colours with inspiration provided by Nicole.

 I decided to use the gorgeous blues that were provided and inked up some Christmas-y stamps. I just have tao say that the Blueberry Sky ink showed up soooo bright and does not look like that in real life.... crazy!  The last photo shows the true colours......

I LOVE the new Bookmark Dies, so I definitely wante to incorporate them into my creation.

I stamped one of the sentiments from Season's Greetings in Hawaiian Shores ink and the sunrise image from Nativity Silhouettes in Smokey Shadow, right onto my diecut Basic Bookmark #3.

I tied a piece of satin Blueberry Sky ribbon to the book mark and then tucked it back in behind some Soft Stone and Hawaiian Shores patterned paper hills, leaving a bit of the sunrise image peeking out.  I added a we bit of Stickles to the top of the hills

I diecut and stamped the two different sizes of churches from the Holiday Home Stamp Set in Blueberry Sky and popped them up at the front - It really reminds me of  The Sound of Music haha!

The various stars were stamped in Hawaiian Shores, New Leaf, Blueberry Sky and Smokey Shadow, and I added a few little gems to some of the stars.

So many layers on this one but I really love the non-traditional colours - happy hopping!!

A Reverse Confetti Thank you!

I received some lovely stamps last week from Reverse Confetti - their latest release!.... so naturally I "needed" to ink them up!

Our family's Thanksgiving was celebrated at our home this year and we had a lovely bag of goodies given to us by our niece - her wonderful canning and some garlic goodies - ALL welcome and enjoyed!  Thank you's are in order - yay!

I used Roundabout (thank you), Roundabout Additions (heart circle) and Class Act for my stamping pleasure :) I used Tropical Teal ink and stamped onto Rustic Cream cardstock.....Love it!

The card was decorated using the NEW Envie Wrap Confetti Cuts and Circles 'n Scallops Confetti Cuts along with the Class Act Confetti Cuts.

I stamped the large dots and large "sequins" all over the envelope, using Papertrey Ink Tropical Teal, Harvest Gold and Canyon Clay inks.

The Envie Wrap Confetti Cuts was die cut and wrapped around the back - where you can stamp again yay! A wonderful spot for your return address!

Hey there bloggers!  This week's Color Throwdown accentuates the perfect Hallowe'en colours - but since I am not a Hallowe'en lover....loser, I know ....I put together a pretty floral card to boost my spirits today.

I received an awesome Lattice Frame Die from WPlus9 and I had to put it to great use! - it gives such a fabulous cut - I love the look - I am pretty much swooning!

I die cut and stamped the Pretty Peonies stamp set with PTI Harvest Gold, New Leaf and Royal Velvet inks, along with Hero Arts Orange Soda ink.

I made a little bouquet of pretty peonies and adhered them to a Reverse Confetti Love Note die with a Confetti Cuts Pretty Panel Diagonal Stripe on top.

Using the Hand Lettered Hello Die I die cut two "hello"'s and layered them on top of eah other - then I attached them to the front of my creation.

After adding a few little Neat and Tangled sequins - well it turned out perfect and it is helping to brighten my day.
