PTI November 2015 Blog Hop Challenge

Hi! I have a non-traditionally colored Christmas card to share with you today. It was inspired by PTI’s November Blog Hop inspiration photo.

Another gorgeous photo for this challenge.

  Here’s my card:

 I’d also like to play this at SSS Wednesday Challenge Blog’s: Simon Says “Anything Goes” and Word Art Wednesday’s Challenge #211: Anything Goes. This card was also inspired by the technique used in this week’s Make It Monday video by Dawn. Instead of using Kraft, I stamped with white on a light gray.  (I made a different card for this week’s MIM. You can click here or click on the next photo to go to the post for that card.)

I used PTI’s Fall Florals, Joyful Christmas and You’ve Been Framed:Hexagon to make 2 versions of this card.

For this first card, I made my own white embossed/striped bg paper with a stamp from PTI’s Background Basics-Super StripesIMG_6665edited

I used the negative of the die cut for the card above and the positive for this next card.

IMG_6676edited IMG_6678edited

Next, I used an embossing folder, inked up with SU! craft/white ink to make this next card.

IMG_6671editedIMG_6674edited

I tried a differnet technique for this next card. This time I used strips of white and gray paper, adhered to sticky label, to make a striped bg paper. IMG_6685edited

Once again, I used the negative of the die cut for the card above and the positive for this next card.

IMG_6666editedI had fun making my own tag by doing some partial die cutting for this card.

P.S. Speaking of shoes, like in the inspiration photo? Have you ever noticed how 1 shoe, or 1 sock or your keys seem to go missing at just the exact wrong time!?? Here’s a fun music video about just that. I hope that it makes you smile. It always does me.

Oh! I love those blocks! Too perfect. I want to follow this tutorial and make some of them! 🙂 Squares and rainbows? What’s not to love?

Here’s my card.

IMG_5431editedI used PTI’s Background Basics: Super Gingham Stamps along with 2 stamps from the Make It Market Mini: Clipsters Kit to stamp the images. Then I used 2 different sized square dies to cut out the squares.
