A Very Trendy Holiday ~ using Metallics

My metallic is the Liquid Platinum EP by Rangers...
I sponged on some Distress Ink for the sky, then because I forgot I wanted to add stars, I added them afterwards and it actually worked out okay (phew!)
That cute little tree and sentiment are from Paper Smooches "Merry Motifs" I colored the tree with copics.

October Blog Hop

Today is the day for the PTI Blog Hop
You get to select the color recipe of your choice to make your holiday card.

I kept mine pretty simple with lots of white.
Stamps:  Holiday Cheer
Dies:  One liners Collection
I spent most of the day in the gym watching Lily's VB end of season tournament.  They played for the championship and sadly lost, but it was a very close game!

A Very Trendy Holiday Geometric Style!

This time I was inspired by Tracey from In My Creative Opinion
I used the PTI Autumn Pattern Pieces in pure poppy and new leaf and added a strip of the same paper to the top and bottom.  Pretty simple and easy!
Thanks for the inspiration Tracey!

Heart Hugs friends!

Our Topping option is "WASHI TAPE" OR...

Make It Monday ~ Faux Stained Glass

Faux Stained Glass is the technique for this week's MIM
demonstrated by none other than Betsy Veldman!
I used the Shakers & sprinkles dies to make the shaker. 
The stamps are from Tremendous Treats Birthday.  After coloring the sky with the copics, I put a little bit of the blender solution onto a rag and dabbed it over the sky to get rid of the streaks, but also to give the illusion of clouds...
Thanks for taking a look!
Heart Hugs!

Make It Monday 184 gold dipped die cuts

The new Make It Monday is by Danielle and she has a very cool video along with three of her tags...go check it out!  She gold dipped her leaves and they look fantastic!  Her technique is dipping the edges of your die cut into versamark and then using gold embossing powder.  I needed a birthday card for my dad, he will be 93 on Saturday, so I pulled out Birthday Style and dipped the edges of the die cut balloon into the versamark and embossed with gold.  I also embossing the birthday and the little bubbles in gold.  the happy was cut from Phrase Play # 5 with Recollections gold paper.
I would love to play along again if I have time I really like how this looks...I especially loved Danielle's leaves and the buttons!
Heart Hugs!
