Vintagey Holiday Creations...October PTI Blog Hop 93

Mona Pendleton | Sunday, October 25, 2009 @ 2:00 PM | , , , , ,

Hello Everyone! It's time for the Annual Papertrey Ink Holiday Blog Hop! This month, Nichole challenged us to show some our best upcoming holiday plans for cards, gifts & wraps! PTI has released soooo many GORGEOUS stamps & templates that are so fun to play with, it was difficult for me to choose which ones to use for my creations for the Holiday Blog Hop. LOL I combined several challenges to use in my blog hop creations-Card #1 & gift bag: 1. Sketch Inspiration comes from The Pink Elephant Challenge #37 2. For BOTH cards Color Inspiration comes from Dawn McVey's RSCC #18, (I don't have PTI New Leaf so I substituted SU Old Olive). I have been lovin' the Old World, vintagey, shabby chic style! I am so looking forward to being inspired for my holiday creating through this blog hop! If you haven't visited any of these sites, be sure to check them out as the DT has AMAZING inspirational samples as well as all the participants! :) Thanks for hoppin' by! Be Sweet!



This is my Poinsettia card & gift bag:
I like these medium size Kraft gift bags as they are the perfect size to hold my gifts. Stamping a gift bag & attaching a tag is a Beautiful way to present a gift, yet quick & easy. :)

Using a sponge dauber inked up with Tim Holtz distressing ink, I smudged the edges of the card & tag giving it an antiquey, vintagey look.I adorned the big tag with the larger Poinsettia & sprigs that I stamped then cut out using the Beautiful PTI Peaceful Poinsettia set & sprigs.

This closeup of the tag really shows the Season's Greetings tag & it's vintagey edges.

I loved Dawn's color combo so much, that I made another gift set :)

I have not mastered my sewing technique on cards yet so, I hand stitched around the square that showcases the ornament.

From this bird's eye view, you can really see all the embossing on the SU Natural Ivory cs & the lil' PTI button on the ornament.

I like to decorate tins & fill with various goodies! :) I made coordinating ornament tags to give as a lil' gift.

Ingredients Used: Stamps: PTI Peaceful Poinsettia, Winter Swirls, Polka Dot Basics, 2008 Holiday Tag Collection, SU Delightful Decorations Paper: PTI Raspberry Fizz, Kraft SU Chocolate Chip, Naturals Ivory, Old Olive Ink: PTI Raspberry Fizz, Tim Holtz Vintage Photo SU Old Olive, Chocolate Chip Sprinkles: PTI buttons & ribbon, Cuttlebug Textile EF, EK Success punch, Spellbinders Labels 4, brads, paper bags & cord from stash, SU punch, Martha Stewart pearls
