October 2010 Papertrey Ink Blog Hop!

It's time again for Papertrey Ink's monthly blog hop and this month the theme is winter holidays other than Christmas. This is Nichole's write up for the challenge:


There is always a lot of focus on Christmas in our industry this time of year, as that is what the majority of the population celebrates. However, this month's blog hop is dedicated to those that celebrate winter holidays other than Christmas. Create a project that celebrates Hanukkah, Kwanzaa or some other winter holiday as we embrace everyone's beliefs in a celebration of diversity through paper crafting.

I don't own any of the stamp sets for Hanukkah and don't really know enough about Kwanzaa to make a card for it, so instead I decided to make a winter scene card that could be used as a generic holiday card and I love this sentiment too. I do believe I have only used this set once before and I have no idea why I haven't used it more often because it's such a fab, versatile set. I will definitely be bringing this one out more often for this year's Christmas cards now.

This one also uses the layout from the In Love With Stamping October sketch challenge.


Recipe:

Stamps: Background Basics: Christmas, Made of Snow both from PTI

Papers: Enchanted Evening, Spring Rain, Stampers Select White

Inks: Whisper White, Bashful Blue, Night of Navy all from SU, Memento Tuxedo Black, Copics

Accessories: Spring Rain stitched grosgrain ribbon from PTI, Diamond Stickles

And that's all from me for this post folks! Thanks for stopping by!
