PaperTrey Ink Blog Hop



Happy Friday Eve my friends.  It has been a couple of months since I've played along with the PaperTrey Ink blog hop.  I had a bit of time on Monday night so I quickly created two cards.  The first one is inspired by the Retro Sketches Challenge too.  It's my first time using my PTI Edgers Die...need to used this more often!

And my second card...I didn't have the exact colors, but I loved adding a touch of glitter to the trees to give it a winter feel.  Two more Christmas cards ready to mail!

Lynn! These are beautiful! I don't think I ever stop by here and not think your work is amazing, but for some reason, these cards really really speak to me. I absolutely am head over heals for the last card, that red bird is the icing on the cake!

The glitter is a great touch and love the pop or red.

Dana Nelson said...

Two fabulous cards!
This may sound stupid, but how did you glitter up those trees? Did you use a glue ink pad, a glue pen, something else?
Thx!!
