November Papertrey Blog Hop Challenge

Hello and Welcome!

Today is the monthly blog hop with Papertrey Ink. You can read all about the hop, join in and take a peak at all the wonderful projects created from the bright and cheerful inspiration photo HERE.

The inspiration photo is gorgeous as always. The scene of shiny ornaments against the white tree and the little truck provided the inspiration for my Holiday card.

The truck is from Tiny Treats: Valentine and the ornament, bell, tree and present are from Tiny Treats: Christmas. The images in these sets are oldies but goodies I reach for again and again. The edge of the white panel was taped off before stamping to create an invisible frame line. The sentiment was heat embossed with black powder on vellum card stock. The stamped panel is popped up on a piece of foam and attached on top of Raspberry Fizz gingham print patterned paper.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!

Assembly Line Cardmaking

Hello and welcome!

I decided it was past time to get started on my Holiday cards as I generally send out somewhere in the neighborhood of 40-50.  The plan was to use Fair Isle Motifs from Papertrey Ink for one of the designs and their Make It Monday this week was just the kick I needed to get moving.

There are so many options for creating a pattern with this set and when you consider the color possibilities, the choices are unlimited.

I used the MISTI stamping tool, which makes it so easy to ensure the images are not only straight, but spaced appropriately.

I made 8 cards, 4 of each color combination.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
