Merry Christmas, Peace & Joy

Hello there PTI fans!
Blog-hop-logo
Happy to be playing along with the Papertrey Ink Blog Hop...I've missed it the last few months.
I love the inspiration photo...
Blog Hop
I followed the photo pretty much to the 't'...
I used two stamps sets from Papertrey Ink, Holiday Cheer and Peaceful Pinecones. I stamped the images with fresh snow ink, PTI. 
I used the ornament tag die, Tag Sale Die #4, to add a pretty touch to my plain white package. I added a bit of PTI's rustic twine.  I added some snow to the tag and card using stamps from Holiday Cheer.
I stamped the pinecone and branches for both the tag and card with Colorbox ink in moss green, espresso and cocoa.  I fussy cut the stamped images and layered them.  I added some white accents with a gel pen and Wink of Stella glitter to the ornaments and snow.
I added some glitter cardstock, from My Favorite Things and pattern paper from My Mind's Eye. The sequins are from Pretty Pink Posh.

I am adding this to Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge, Gift It

Nutty For You

Hello there!
Just stopping by for a quick post...
I love the sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch

I used Falling for You from Paper Smooches. Love all the different stamp images on this set! I watercolored the background using frayed burlap distress ink.
I stamped the nut and heart with black ink from Memento and colored them in with Copic Markers. I embossed the sentiment with white powder onto lack cardstock. I added some white accents with a gel pen and scattered some sequins and a clear drop. 
Pretty Simple.

Get Well Soon

Hello there!
It's time to share the newest ColourQ palette...
Hope you will play along with us!

I used the stamp set Natural Beauties from Paper Smooches to create the background.  I randomly stamped the images with Cup O' Joe ink from Hero Arts onto watercolored cardstock. Than I used Copic Markers to color them.  I added some white accents with a gel pen.

I used a stitched scalloped die from Mama Elephant to cut the background panel.  The sentiment is also from Paper Smooches, Smooches. I used coordinating dies to add the bird and branch to the pennant. I scattered some clear drops from Pretty Pink Posh.

I combined an older set with the new release...
I used the scarecrow, Stand Add-On...(my absolute favorite stamp!!) with the new stamp sets Thankful and Thanks and the new Sweet Cuts Dies, Thanks.
