EEK! Okay, it’s officially the Christmas season in the studio!  Welcome to my PTI Blog Hop post AND my second Christmas card post of the year!  I couldn’t narrow down the non-traditional inspiration palettes so I went with 2 this month…both equally yummy in their own ways.

Nothing makes me happier than bringing out the little jingle bells I’ve slowly collected over the past few years.  Nothing says “Christmas” like jingle bells (okay, and Baby Jesus! LOL)  I love how the sentiment fits perfectly onto the file tab!

Wow! I love how you used two of the contrasting color palettes. The grays and blues on the first one are so soft and gorgeous. I love the felt poinsettia leaves (reminds me I shouldn't always go traditional with my colors) and the second one shouts Christmas happiness to me. Love the bright colors with the bling!

Love the poinsettia card - the polka dots are making me swoon and that merry die is calling my name. Great take on the colours! KNEW you would use the second combo - that is the one that screamed Moe to me :) Great pop of colour with the ornaments. Well doen times two :) I wimped out and went with tags LOL!

Cecilie said...

Love your first card(I used the same colour combo for my card) - the poinsettia is gorgeous in that cool colour.

I love both cards - I can't pick a fave! I love the felt poinsettia (and that colour story was a close second for my, too!!), and your layers make it all work so perfectly. The second one is just FUN, with pink bells and everything!!!

Both are GORGEOUS but I LOVE the felt pointsettia best with all the FAB layers and stitching! WOW!

Your two cards are so different but equally delightful!! Ocean Tides has never been on my list of favs, but after seeing this colour scheme, I'm rethinking that one!!

Love BOTH of these...you made the gray/blue combo sing -- and that awesome pop of pink on the second card is fantastic!

I'm still having a difficult time using gray - I finally came to terms with all of the brown - now I need to embrace gray??? oh well, love your poinsettia card!
