Papertrey November Blog Hop Challenge

Please scroll down for my Rudolph Days card.

Blog hop inspirationI always look forward to PTI Blog Hop day. This month the inspiration picture has a lot of variety.  The first thing I noticed was the beautiful white on white stocking.  I began by stamping several die cuts from PTI Spruce & Sprigs in Soft Stone. Beautiful look, I think, but couldn't resist using Raspberry Fizz for the berry branches & berries.  The frame & card front are done with Lil' Inker Stitched Rectangle dies.  I hadn't yet opened PTI Botanical Blocks IV.
When I saw the little block sentiment I knew it was perfect for this card & love it embossed in silver.  Debated about some splatters, but decided to keep it white & just added Spectrum Noir clear sparkle pen to the berries. Great to have a card with interest & yet flat enough to only need 1 stamp.  I'm also entering HLS Anything Goes with Dies, SSS Monday (3 big berries & 3 words), SSS Wednesday & Word Art Wednesday.  I am so thankful for all of my wonderful blogging friends--you bless my life.

  26. COOL! Love that hot pink with the white, so unusual yet it feels very Christmas like. I'm making a bunch of flat cards today for someone else. It seems weird, no foam tape, no brads, no bows.
