Papertrey Ink October Blog Hop

 Hello!  This is my second post for today so if you are looking for my Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge post, please see the post below this.  Today is the Papertrey Ink October Blog Hop.  The inspiration for this month's hop is the photo below which is a box full of Christmas decorations.
I created two cards for this month's PTI hop, for the first one I drew inspiration from the stems that are attached to the tags from the inspiration photo above and created a wreath.  I used the new PTI stamp set Cup of Cheer along with the coordinating dies and the Rustic Wreath die as the base of the wreath.  I used the fantastic Holly Jolly sentiment from the Cup of Cheer set and my MISTI tool to stamp the sentiment in red and green onto white card stock.  The die cut my Rustic Wreath, then die cut and stamped my poinsettias, leaves and boughs and glue them onto the wreath, added foam tape to the back and adhered the decorated wreath it to the front of my card.  I also added a strip of PTI pure poppy designer paper along the bottom and added some yellow stickles to the center of the flowers.
 For my second card I used the PTI stamp set Painted Poinsettias.  This is a beautiful stamp set with great details and sentiments.  I started out with a white card base, added a strip of red card stock and pure poppy striped paper, then stamped my sentiment and added my stamped and die cut poinsettias, layering and popping up the poinsettia at the top of my card.

Thanks so much for stopping by and enjoy the hop!
