PapertreyInk October Blog Hop: Non-Traditonal Holiday Colors

There are 6 non traditional color groups to the challenge.
Couldn't pick just one, so, did all 6!
Color-group-1
Used all the challenge colors for this one, plus kraft.
It just fit so well!
Wreath is Limitless layers circle dies, big and small, cut with kraft cardstock and white felt, staggered. Then wrapped with twine.
2nd challenge
Color-group-2
Used lots of different dies for this one.

Color group 3

Wonderful excuse to try the diamond harlequin stamps and dies!
#4
Color-group-4
Couldn't wait to use my copics for this one
(Thank you Debbie Olson!)

For years I made and sold Santa dolls.
Anything santa, I love!
#5
Color-group-5


I absolutely love Sept. and Oct.'s stamp releases!
So glad for the excuse to use them. Gingerbread was a blast! Sprayed the whole card with adhesive and
shook on fairy dust!
And #6
Color-group-6
Threw in a little limey washi tape. Also, the red scarlett plaid is washi from Freckled Fawn.


Can't wait to see what ya all came up with.
If you've got any how's  or where's, let me know.
I love sharing!
Oh, and it's not to late to join in the fun.

Happy Blog day!

  1. OK, I am going to give you the official "over-achiever" award for the October Blog Hop! These are all fantastic!! OK, so I suppose I should pick a favorite, right? I have to go with your first one ... the bells and mittens hanging from your wreath are just adorable! (a close second goes to the next one, the pink poinsettia!)

  21. Personally, I think your cards should be the inspiration photos, but that's just me. :-) Incredible! The last one is unbelievable and I love the tan lace accents, but the candy cane house should be some sort of game. It's so cute! Beautiful layers.
