PTI's Create Along With Us: October 2016

I am so excited about this month's new releases from PTI, especially since I have been "hoping" for "Hope" in the Inspired Collection for awhile now...and Betsy Veldman is delivering!  One of my favorite parts of the new release is the Create Along With Us Challenge, a creative way to pass time until we can buy the new products! showcase projects inspired by the designers' use of the new products.

This month Nicole Heady's ornament card caught my eye.  I love looking at twinkling lights and ornaments on a tree, so decided to make mine a little more shiiiiiiiiny, as my son likes to say!  I was also inspired by this card I found on Pinterest awhile ago.

For my card, I began by die cutting three white circles from PTI's small Limitless Layers set.  I stamped them with the Flourish Background Cling Stamp from Hero Arts, the poinsettia from PTI's Year of Flowers Collection, and the star of Bethlehem from Paper Smooche's A Blessed Christmas.  I embossed the images in green, red, and gold, respectively, and added gold embossed ribbons and bows from PTI's Balloon Bash set to "hang" them from the top of the card.  A gold embossed sentiment from A Blessed Christmas and a white card base finished it off!  Hope you enjoy the rest of release week!  Happy stamping!


  1. Pretty! Those dies are on my wish list.

  2. Beautiful ornaments. Lovely card.

  3. Love your ornaments, Elizabeth. So elegant with the embossing!

  4. What gorgeous ornaments you created! Love the gold embossed sentiment, ribbons and bows, Elizabeth.
