The Essentials by Ellen Mistletoe & Holly set is on my workspace, I am trying to figure out personal Christmas card ideas. With all of the violence and death in the news the past month, the “I wish for peace” sentiment stamp spoke to me from a storage drawer.

I masked the pine cones using Post-It notes before stamping the foliage and berries. The snow accents are Kirarina WiNK white pen.

Peaceful Holiday Card – PTI Make It Monday #184

pti make it monday 184

This week’s Papertrey Ink Make It Monday Challenge (#184) is titled Dipped Die Cuts, and is about highlighting the edge of a die cut with embossing powder.

(oops! As I am setting up this post, I realize the title of the challenge is GOLD Dipped Die Cuts. Metallic is metallic…I’m sticking with my silver!)

I knew immediately that I wanted to use the Papertrey Ink tree die, and make a holiday card. Digging through my embossing powders, I found a tube of Martha Stewart Sterling Glitter embossing powder. To finish my card, I searched high and low through my stamps (including the ones on the crawl space in the basement – no luck there) to find this old PSX Designs sentiment.

Supplies: Stamp – PSX Designs, paper – Papertrey Ink White, Stampin’ Up! Soft Sky, Wild Wasabi (textured), inks – Copic E57, VersaFine Onyx Black, VersaMark, Wink of Stella, dies – Papertrey Ink (tree), Stampin’ Up! (banner), embossing powder – Filigree Fine Art Powder, Martha Stewart Sterling Glitter Embossing Powder, organdy ribbon – JoAnn’s.

Trying to fill up the sympathy section in my card basket. Of course, as soon as I finished this one, I found out I needed to mail one to a friend.

I am busy getting Offspring1 and Offspring2 back to their respective housing at College Town for the next few days. Maybe I will make some headway on the cards next week.

Thanks for stopping by!

Supplies: Stamps – Papertrey Ink, PSX Designs, Stampin’ Up!, paper – Blue Moon Confetti (unknown source), Stampin’ Up! Elegant Eggplant, Sahara Sand, Shimmery White, inks – Stampin’ Up!
