Papertrey Ink October Blog Hop!


Hello there!  Time again for the Papertrey Ink Blog Hop!  This month the challenge was to create a project using one of  six different non-traditional holiday color schemes.  My card is more of a winter card than a holiday card, but I just love the colors!  Here is the scheme I chose to work with:


I pulled out one of my Tremendous Treats Christmas.  LOVE all of the sets in this series!  Another new love of mine is the Snowflake Medley stamp set.  I love the various sizes of snowflakes and the distressed finish.


Thanks for stopping by!  Off to hop and be inspired! :)

Supplies (all PTI unless noted):
Stamps: Tremendous Treats Christmas, Snowflake Medley
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Raspberry Fizz, Hibiscus Burst, Aqua Mist, Hawaiian Shores
Paper: Stampers Select White, Hawaiian Shores, Aqua Mist Pattern Pack, Pink/Orange Beautiful Beads paper pack
Dies: Limitless Layers 2.5" Circles, In the Meadow (snowdrifts)
Other: Aqua Mist Satin Ribbon, Copic Markers, Popdots

Snowflake medley and your cute penguin are a match made in heaven. Love your coloring too!! You asked what glitter I used ... on the snowflake I used both Martha Stewart & Prisma, on the pinecone I used distress stickles with the Martha sprinkled on top. :)
