PTI's November Blog Hop

Thanksgiving is here!! Today is a busy pie making day for me so I'm popping by this morning to post my card to PTI's November Blog Hop. Look at this gorgeous inspiration photo:

Here's my card:

I used Joyful Christmas and Quilted Winter and created a focal cluster from Lexi's MIM tutorial a while back.
It's kind of hard to tell in the photo, because of my genius lack of photography skills, but the stars and the last part of the sentiment are heat embossed in silver.
It's prettier in real life. ;0)

I hope you have fun blog hopping today! I'll be visiting and commenting in between pies!
Have a blessed Thanksgiving!!

Thanks for stopping by! Blessings~ Birgit

PTI ~ Make-It Monday ~ Layered Stamping on Kraft

Playing along with Dawn McVey's PTI Make-It Monday doing layered stamping on Kraft cardstock. You can find all the details HERE.

I used Filled With Joy for this card.

I've done this kind of stamping before but I don't often think to use it. Here's another card I made way back when...

For this one, I used Out On A Limb.
A fun technique with beautiful results!

I'll also be entering one of these cards into the Word Art Wednesday Challenge

PTI ~ Make-It Monday Motif's

It was Betsy's turn this week to host the Make-It Monday challenge and she did a fabulous inspiration piece on building Motif's!

This was so much fun to put together!

I started by stamping the snowflake from Peace Be Still and added the sprig from Note Niblets. The arched leaves are from Embellished Elegance and the large stars from O' Tannenbaum. The small star cluster and cardinal is from Holiday Folk. The sentiment is from Joyful Christmas and was heat embossed in silver.

So much FUN!
I'll also be adding this to the Word Art Wednesday Challenge

Getting Foxy

Curtain Call is having a "FOXY" challenge right now ~ So cute!!

You can check out all the details on their blog.

I used PTI's Hello Foxy. I stamped the sentiment onto a folder tab cut using MFT's File Tab which is currently on clearance so grab one while you can! The clouds are cut using WPlus9's Hello Sunshine. I used glitter paper for the outline of the cloud because this is a "foxy" card and she deserves some glam!

I'll also be adding this card to the Word Art Wednesday challenge.

To Everything There Is A Season

In a time of uncertainty, it's comforting to know that in all things, God is in control. My heart and prayers go out to the City of Lights, all the people in Paris who've been affected by such a tragedy. With that said, I'll share this card that I made a couple of weeks ago and never got around to posting. It's a reminder that it all has purpose under heaven.

I used PTI's Songbird to create this. I did some ink blending on white cardstock and cut the leaves and flowers. I went chalkboard style with the sentiment.

I'll be adding this to the following challenges:

The Card Concept
Classy Cards N' Such

Please remember to keep Paris in your prayers.

Tag You're It! Challenge #34

Hello friends~ Just popping in with a quick post for a tag for the Tag You're It challenge.
Here's this week's cute inspiration tag

I used Sweet 'N Sassy's cute new set "Winter Is For The Birds". These little fella's are all dressed up for the cold winter ahead and boy are they ever fun to color up and give life to. A little reminder to bundle up for the cold weather ahead!

Thanks so much for stopping by! Blessings~ Birgit

Christmas Cheer ~ Die Cuts Only

Good morning paper crafting friends~ I'm here to day with a card I made for the City Crafters Challenge using only dies. No stamping or printed paper allowed. It was tougher than I thought it would be as the first card I made, I realized I was using printed paper. Here's two cards I made using this challenge, but I'll only be entering one card into the challenge.

I used Memory Box's Grand Merry Christmas and MFT's Hug In A Mug to make my card. The only thing I did was add a couple touches of copic marker details on the whipped cream and marshmallows.

This CAS stocking shaped card is the one I had to do twice after realizing that I had cut the holly leaves using a printed paper. OOPS! The stocking die is from MFT.

I'll be entering one of these cards into the following challenges:
Word Art Wednesday
The Sisterhood of Crafters

Thanks so much for stopping by! I sure do enjoy and appreciate all your comments! Blessings~ Birgit
