A final few PTI Christmas cards

Only 6 more days til Christmas!!! Hope you're all as excited as I am!

I have virtually finished all my Christmas cards now - just one more to make for my MIL to match the pillow box I also need to make for her jewellery and then I think I can finally say I'm done with them all! So on to the cards...

This first one is for CC301 to use Basic Gray, Concord Crush and Marina Mist, old Mojo #83 and for an old Papertrey Princess challenge of Michele's to use an old stamp set with a non-traditional colour combo. I think this qualifies!


Recipe:

Stamps: Stocking Prints, Big & Bold Holiday Wishes, Background Basics: Christmas all from PTI

Papers: Basic Gray, Concord Crush, Marina Mist all from SU, Stampers Select White from PTI

Inks: Basic Gray, Concord Crush, Marina Mist all from SU

Accessories: Stocking Die, Large Scallop Border Die both from PTI, Buttons from stash, Diamond Stickles, Silver cord from stash, Snowflakes Embossing Folder

My next card uses Stocking Prints again - I just love this set! This one is for Just Add Ink's #48 for the sketch, A Passion for Papertrey's Perfectly Pretty Pearls challenge (Noticed one of mine has fallen off though now I've uploaded it - have put another back on as it's disappeared, probably under the mountain of wires under the desk!) and for Mariah's Papertrey Princess challenge Make It Pop - to use dimensionals/foam pads somewhere to make something "pop up!"


Recipe:

Stamps: Polka Dot Basics, Stocking Prints, Inside & Out: Holiday, Background Basics: Christmas all from PTI

Papers: Spring Rain, Blueberry Sky, Stampers Select White all from PTI

Inks: Bashful Blue, Marina Mist both from SU

Accessories: Stocking Die, Large Scallop Border Die, Blueberry Sky ribbon all from PTI, Pearls from Lakeland

My next Christmas card is for Bethie J's red and white Papertrey Princess challenge, Sweet Stampin's Celebrations challenge and for In Love With Stampin's November sketch challenge!


Recipe:

Stamps: Big & Bold Holiday Wishes, Made of Snow both from PTI

Paper: Real Red, Whisper White both from SU, Acetate sheet from stash

Inks: Real Red from SU, Memento Tuxedo Black, Copics

Accessories: Diamond Stickles, Circle Nestabilities, Snowflakes rub ons from Christmas stash box!

My final card is a Christmas thank you instead of a Christmas card. I'm trying to plan ahead so I have a few thank you cards ready to give out to people after Christmas as I know once I get my lovely new Kindle from Santa all I'll be doing is reading! This one is for Mojo #169, Stacey's Curtain Call #61 to use Bravo Burgundy, Early Espresso, Very Vanilla and Crumb Cake and for Our Creative Corner's Embossed with Colour challenge.


Recipe:

Stamps: Signature Christmas from PTI

Papers: Bravo Burgundy, Crumb Cake, Very Vanilla, Elegant Soiree DSP all from SU

Inks: Early Espresso from SU

Accessories: Bravo Burgundy ribbon from SU, Dark Chocolate buttons, Signature Series: Flower die both from PTI, Vanilla Cupcake button from Elzybells, Swirls Embossing Folder from Crafts Too

And that's all for today folks. Thanks for stopping by!
