PTI NOvember Blog Hop: Dashing through the snow.

A second post for me today for another submission to PTI's November Blog Hop where the theme is snow.  Once again I used In The Meadow. I used my Cameo to create the snow drifts and the birch trees.

The lighting on the next card is bad since I took the picture at night. It has a brown tinge to it, but I actually used Soft Stone as my background

PTI Blog Hop November 2014": Snow

    Can you believe that Christmas is only a month away! But Today is PTI's November Blog Hop. The theme is snow.  I just recently purchased In the Meadow. I don't know what took me so  long to get this set. It is one of my Christmas favorites next to Holly Jolly. (Polka Dot tree too) I guess I have a lot of Christmas favorites.
I sponged the background using Spring Rain and Aqua Mist. I created the little stream of snow using the Edger's die on two sides with a snip here and there. The sentiment from Star of Wonder is embossed in silver. Thanks for stopping by to take a peek. Enjoy the Blog Hop!

Newest Christmas card Challenge

I'm back with two Christmas cards today using PTI's O' Tannenbaum. I just love the little Christmas tree in that set.

After I made this card, I decided to try the same design with Kraft as a background.

Do you have a preference for one over the other?
I am submitting this card to a new challenge I found called Christmas Cards All Year Long. The challenge is to create a Christmas card using no pattern paper. Thanks for stopping by to take a peek.

Retrosketches # 141

It's been a long time since I participated in a Retrosketch challenge. Despite making many Christmas cards throughout the year, I still need quite a few more. Thought this sketch would work well with one of my new stamp sets from PTI: O'Tannenbaum.

Here's my take.

I heat embossed the tree with silver powder and stamped the ornaments & sentiment with Royal Velvet. Winter Wisteria was used for the dots around the tree. I created a snow drift using one of my edger's die. Added a dab of glitter to the edge. (My camera has a smudge on the lens; it's not the card)

MIM" Stamping Ombre Backgrounds

The MIM video this week on Nicole's website is Stamping Ombre Backgrounds. I decided to make a background for a Christmas cards. I love the way this card turned out. Very CAS.

I used the Linen Impression plate on the ornament to add a bit of texture. The sentiment is from Holiday Wishes. Thanks for stopping by to take a peek.

MIM: Partial Die Cuts for the Holidays

Just a quick post for PTI's MIM: Partial Die Cuts for the Holidays. I used the Christmas Tree die as my focal point. The partial die cuts were the swags from Birthday Style.

  I just loved Melissa's touch of the holly. I couldn't resist, especially since the tree needed a bit more than the glittered swags.
