Papertrey Ink October Blog Hop


It's time for Papertrey Ink's monthly Blog Hop!! For October our inspiration came from non traditional colors. PTI's blog has several photos and colors to choose from.  This is the photo that i picked:

So as i sat down and made my card, i had my idea and as i started stamping it, i realized Sweet Blush is too light of a pink, so instead i used Raspberry Fizz.

I found a stray strip of fabric and stamped a string of Christmas lights across it. I did the wire in Dark Chocolate and the lights in Raspberry Fizz, Scarlet Jewel and Ripe Avocado.

Next i stamped the flourishes in Classic Kraft ink on my Kraft cardbase. Next i die cut the Happy Day Die from Kraft and stamped the sentiment in Dark Chocolate. I lightly inked the edges of the label, then adhered it to my cardbase.

Last i adhered the fabric strip across my card and trimmed the edges.

Thanks so much for stopping by!!
