Merry Christmas to You

Thursday, September 24, 2015

Hi there! It is a little early for a Christmas card as I am not entering this card into a Christmas challenge but I got my PTI September release box in the mail the other day. I couldn't wait to break out my new goodies! I am participating in Freshly Made Sketches. I thought this week's sketch looked so fun!

I die cut most of the pieces first and did all of my stamping on the flag. It came together really quick but I had a little trouble figuring out what I wanted to do with the piece going across the top. At first, I just had a strip of red paper but that looked too plain. I started looking at my patterned paper and I liked the polka dots. I thought it might be too much to use the edger die on the bottom of it but I decided to go for it and I really like it. It adds that little something that was missing. 

My Supplies:
Stamps: PTI Deck the Halls
Dies: PTI Deck the Halls, PTI Edgers #3, MFT Die-namics Blueprint 13, MFT Die-namics Fishtail Flag Stax
Ink: PTI Pure Poppy, PTI Scarlet Jewel, PTI Simply Chartreuse, PTI Ripe Avocado
Paper: PTI Pure Poppy, PTI 2008 Bitty Dot Basics, PTI Stamper's Select White

Thank you for coming by!
