October 2012 PTI Blog Hop

The Challenge this time for PTI Blog hop is to create Holiday project with non traditional holiday colors. I am on a roll with my Christmas cards so this was perfect and it is always fun to experiment with Non Traditional colors. So be warned of this photo heavy post as I created three cards for today's blog hop.

1) First up is this Aqua Mist and Raspberry Fizz Combination,
I stamped the wreath image from PTI Wreath for all seasons in Raspberry Fizz and added the berries in Blue (I do not have PTI Hawaiian shores ink - so used a memento ink here). The sentiment from Signature Christmas was also stamped in blue. Here is the combo from Nichole Heady's Blog,

2) Second is the card I did with Pine Feather, Ocean Tides and Pure Poppy. I just loved how this card turned out,
I used Rustic Snowflakes and Dearest Jane Patterned Papers along with Ocean Tides, pine Feather, Vintage Cream card stock. Sentiment is from PTI Fillable Frames #8. I added a few snow flakes brads as well. Here is the combo from Nichole Heady's blog,

3) Last but not the least, I used Melon Berry, Berry Sorbet and Harvest gold combination. I also used Retro Sketches #34 for this card.
I used the PTI 2008 Holiday tags stamp set for this card and this was a truly unusual color combination for me to use for a holiday card. It was nice to work out of my comfort zone. I also used the doily details dies from PTI.
Here are the retro sketch and combo from Nichole Heady's blog,
