PTI Blog Hop October 2012 + Make it Monday

Today is the 25th which means it is time for Papertrey Ink’s monthly blog hop. This month is a colour challenge pushing us to create holiday cards in non-traditional colours.

For my card I chose this scheme which consists of very cool colours that I think are perfect for wintery cards. I thought I might combine the blog hop challenge with this week’s Make it Monday which was a lot of fun.

I was lucky enough to receive my new stamps on the 24th so I could use them for the blog hop. On my card I used the new Peaceful Pinecones and the older Bells and Boughs. For the small stars on the buttom I used Background Basics: Twinkle. The cones were stamped using my very first PTI ink: Ocean Tides. I am afraid these dies are very addictive as are the stamps…

For the Make it Monday I diecut the pinecones in a Mat Stack #1 before stamping the pinecones. Afterwards I added an extra branch and pinecone and finally a bow from Bells and Boughs.

It isn’t easy to take pictures of the effect of using both the negative and the positive space but it is such a cool technique and I will have to try my hands at the technique again soon.
