Christmas with PTI

Just a last couple of things I did this weekend, but these all use PTI stamps!

My card is for Stacey's Curtain Call #60 to use Old Olive, Certainly Celery, Chocolate Chip, Real Red and Whisper White, Sweet Sunday's sketch #96 and Papertrey Posse's glitter challenge. I used Stickles glitter glue, so I hope that counts!


Stamps: Background Basics: Christmas, Made of Snow, Inside & Out: Holiday

Papers: Real Red, Chocolate Chip, Certainly Celery all from SU,  Stampers Select White from PTI

Inks: Old Olive, Chocolate Chip from SU, Memento Tuxedo Black, Copics

Accessories: Real Red Satin Ribbon from SU, Large Scallop Border Die, Chocolate Bakers Twine both from PTI, Button from stash, Diamond Stickles

And my final thing for this weekend was 10 of these calendars, which I am entering in Papertrey Peeps challenge #20 to use one of Papertrey Ink's product lines! I used the Calendar Die from PTI, along with the mini calendars, CD cases and Calendar Basics stamp set to make some Christmas gifts for friends and work colleagues. I have to admit they took forever to make and I would not want to make so many in one sitting again!

This is the front cover... (idea of the squares CASED from Nichole Heady!)

And this is a close up of the first page. Each page uses the same stamp set (it was bad enough sorting out colours which kind of resembled the month, let alone try to find stamp sets as well!). Some pages have the calendar in the top left while some have it in the bottom right. This made it easier to fit all 11 pieces of card in the CD cases. I did 5 calendars using one of the fonts for the months and 5 in the other font! But I think I prefer this one.

And finally this is all the colours together.


Stamps: Calendar Basics, Delightful Dahlias

Papers: Stampers Select White from PTI, Baja Breeze, Poppy Parade, Daffodil Delight, Certainly Celery, Rose Red, Peach Parfait, Pink Pirouette, Perfect Plum, Wild Wasabi, Pumpkin Pie, Pacific Point, Real Red all from SU

Inks: As above plus Chocolate Chip, Whisper White all SU

Accessories: Calendar Die, Mini Calendars, CD Cases all from PTI

And that is all from me this weekend folks! Only 1 week left at work before we break up for the Christmas holidays and I still have my gift boxes, matching cards and 2 tags to make! Nothing like leaving things to the last minute huh?!
