October 2012 Papertrey Blog Hop…

This is my first time to participate in one of the Papertrey Ink blog hops!  I LOVE the color combos they challenged everyone with.. I hope to use some of the other combos too!

I used this one… I found the colors in card-stock and then it hit me… these are the colors of one of the Basic Grey Christmas collections from a few years ago!  I knew I had some pieces and scraps, so I dug them out and started working.   The colors matched perfectly! yea!

I used PTI Sweet Blush and Dark Chocolate card-stocks.  The Ripe Olive was a little dark, so I used a tad bit lighter green card-stock for the leaves.

The poinsettia is the PTI Year of the Flower Poinsettia set and die set.
The sentiment is from the Think Big Favorites #20 Mini Stamp Set .
I used the Tag Sale #5 Die for the ‘tails’ under the poinsettia.
I colored a bit on the poinsettias… I used RV21… I know… sounds too pink but it was better than the R11, 20 or 21..they made it too peach.

I don’t own any PTI stamp inks but the Colorbox Rose Coral and Olive Pastel Chalk inks matched great, so that’s what I stamped the poinsettias with.  The sentiment is stamped with Versafine Onyx Black ink.

Thanks for stopping by… click on the PTI links above to go the inlinkz list of other blog hop participants!

I know…two poinsettia cards this week! hehe  and I used this one week before last I think and colored it… so pretty… love poinsettias!  So I’ll cool it on poinsettias for awhile! lol
