Paper: Papertrey Ink Blog Hop – Holiday Inspiration

November 25, 2011

Hey there everyone!!!

I finally got around to creating a couple of cards for the Papertrey Ink Blog Hop!  I’ve been hanging around the house all day – recovering from yesterday’s food fest! Even though I’m a little tardy for the party, I knew I had to play along with this month’s hop – the inspirational photo just has so much to offer!

Upon seeing this photo, I immediately zoomed in one of those beautifully wrapped presents on the step and decided to design a card using the same layout…

I just love the non-traditional colors for the first card. For the snowflake, I covered a piece of cardstock, sprinkled on some of my favorite glitter by Sprinkle ‘n’ Sparkle, then used my Martha Stewart Snowflake punch!
I opted to leave out the sentiment for this card so that the glittery snowflake could stand out on it’s own!
I was really inspired by the non traditional colors that I created another card using a similar palette. I used my new Alpha Block dies – and I must say – I LOVE THEM!!!!! I mean, I love them MUCHO! I used the negative image of the die to create this simple but fun layout! Each letter fit perfectly in a 1″ die cut square.

That’s all from me today! Thanks for stopping by and I hope you are having a great Friday!
Cardstock: PTI (Hibiscus Burst, Pure Poppy, Kraft, Raspberry Fizz, Simple Chartreuse)
Other: Spellbinders Square dies, PTI (Alpha Block dies, Woodgrain Impression Plate), Sparkle ‘n’ Sprinkle (Sparkling Snow Glitter)

  1. {sing songy voice} Wonderful!!!!! Both are stunning. I think “joy” is my fave simply because I love anything that says “joy” for Christmas.
