Papertrey Ink October Blog Hop

Hi everyone!!  I had the chance to get a couple of cards done this morning for the PTI Blog Hop today!  Here is the challenge that was issued this time around:
Let me first note that I am editing these images on my laptop, and the screen is not color calibrated.  So, I have no idea if the coloring is right on with these images...I will end up redoing them when I get home!

My first card I decided to go with a winter theme.  I did use Color Cue 9 from the WPlus9 blog this month.  Pink, grey & white...one of my FAVE combos!!
"Chill of Winter" supplies: 
Cardstock: Bazzill Basics
Paper: My Mind's Eye
Stamps/felt/Die: Papertrey Ink (Friendship Jar Holiday Fillers, On Ice
Ink: Clearsnap (Pigment: antique pewter) 
Ribbon: Renaissance by Design
Jewels: Doodlebug Designs
Glitter: DecoArt & Ranger Stickles
Corner Rounder: EK Success 
Diecut Machine: Cuttlebug by Provo Craft

Instructions:  Fold pink cardstock in half to make card base, and round the bottom corners.  Round the bottom corners of a white paper block, and cover the top with a pink houndstooth paper block.  Stamp the hanging snowflakes to the right side of the block.  Cut a scalloped border from white felt, and adhere right above the stamping.  Tie ribbon around the seam between the patterned paper and felt, then stamp the sentiment below the bow.  Adhere the entire block to the front of the card.  Accent the snowflake centers with jewels, and add glitter Stickles to the stars. 

For my next card, I went with a Hanukkah card.  I had to mix some stamps, so I used both PTI and Lawn Fawn to create this one.  I love how it turned out!!  I used Laura's Sketch 64 from 2 Sketches 4 U for this one. 

"Happy Hanukkah" supplies: 
Cardstock: Bazzill Basics 
Stamps: Papertrey Ink (Merry Little Christmas) & Lawn Fawn (Happy Hanukkah)
Ink: Clearsnap (Pigment: chestnut, eggplant, antique pewter, evergreen, lilac, black)
Embossing Powder: Stampendous (clear)
Ribbon: Renaissance by Design
Jewels: Doodlebug Designs
Corner Rounder: EK Success

Instructions:  Fold purple cardstock in half to make card base, and tie light purple ribbon around the middle of it.  Round the top corners of a white cardstock block, and stamp the scene to it.  Cover the dreidels in clear embossing powder, and set with a heat gun.  Accent two of the tree stems with purple jewels, and adhere the entire block to the front using dimensional adhesive.

We are having a good time in Sheridan, MT so far with my parents and Josh's dad.  My mom made the yummiest quiche for dinner last night...it was your normal spinach quiche, but in place of regular bacon we added turkey bacon, and in place of swiss cheese we added a cheddar blend.  It was YUMMY!  I am definitely going to make that more when I am at home! 

Well, I better get going for now!  Enjoy your Monday! ♥♥♥ 

Until later,
~Lea L.
