PTI Weekly Challenge

I had time this weekend to play along with the PTI weekly challenge where Lynn provided us with a great sketch. I decided to go for a Christmas theme since the holidays are creeping up--they will be here before we know it. I wish the camera had captured the shimmer in the base and tree image--I used PTI's Shimmer White paper for both.

Paper: PTI Shimmer White and Pure Poppy, green pp from my stash; Ink: PTI Pure Poppy, Copic markers; Stamps: Believe, Snowflake Serenade, Rustic Branches (all from Papertrey Ink)

Next up is a card I entered into the monthly Guest Start Stamper contest over at PTI. Every month you get a chance to win a free stamp set and be featured in their GSS gallery. I didn't win, but I always have fun making something and entering anyway, and I love seeing all of the beautiful creations every month.

Paper: PTI's White, Sweet Blush, Spring Moss, Berry Sorbet, Lemon Tart, Aqua Mist, black paper from my stash; Stamps: PTI's Guidelines, Simple Little Things (Anniversary Set); Ink: Versafine Onyx and Smokey Grey, Copic Markers

The next card was a quick and easy one inspired by the ribbon I found in the $1 bin at Michaels. I noticed it went very well with PTI's Sweet Blush and Berry Sorbet cardstock so I was off and running.

Paper: PTI's Sweet blush, Berry Sorbet, White, bright green paper from my stash; Ink: Berry Sorbet, Versafine Onyx; Stamps: Little Lady (PTI)

I hope you enjoyed looking at my new cards. I'm glad I finally had something to post. :-) (The weather has been so beautiful that it's been hard to stay inside = no time in craft room.)

Have a great rest of the day. Thanks for stopping by.
