May Peace be your Gift . . PTI Oct Blog Hop



 

It's time for PTI's Blog Hop once again. This month it is all about breaking out of your comfort zone and trying out some non-traditional color schemes for a holiday card or tag!
 

Nicole Heady put together six non-traditional holiday color schemes to chose from. I selected the colors of Pine Feather, Oceans Tide, Pure Poppy, and Vintage Cream.


My starting point - I had just received these clear boxes (3 different styles) from Pick Your Plum. It's an online deal of the day. I have had great luck picking up some fun items for a great price. 


Box #1 uses the largest Seeing Stars die cut from Ocean Tides pattern paper as the base. A scallop circle from the Limitless Layers: 1 3/4" Circle die cut from Pine Feather paper is next. The top is stamped with images from Countdown to Christmas in Ocean Tide ink.


Box #2 makes me HAPPY! A fun bow created with the Loopsy-Daisy die collection. The largest die left "open" followed by tulle that I gathered and then an Ocean Tide felt bow tied with a Pure Poppy button is all it took. The sentiment is from Holiday Lights. This is the 1st time I have used this sentiment. It stamped beautifully in Pine Feather ink.



Box #3 is a pillow box. I cut four trees from the Love Lives Here: Holiday die collection and glue them together to create a 3-D embellishment. The sentiment is from Layered Postmarks: Holiday. I don't know if you noticed this but the sentiments in this set are right justified which really give you extra room on tags for embellishments.  The 2nd tag has the gift recipients " initial" on a tag made from Fillable Frame #9 and the Block Alphabet Upper die collection.



A card to go with this ensemble was easy to create with the leftovers. Strips of pattern paper, a star die embossed with the By the Numbers impression plate and the sentiment popped up.


 
Hope you have fun hopping and gets LOTS of inspiration. ~Rhonda
