PTI October Blog Hop - Color Combo #4


This month's PTI Blog Hop challenge is to gleam inspiration from a variety of non-traditional holiday color schemes to create a project.  Nichole provided us with six gorgeous non-traditional holiday color scheme inspiration photos.  I love each color scheme, and really wish I had time to create a project for every one of them!  If you would like to check things out for yourself, you can find out all about it here.

For this challenge I decided to use the color scheme in the fourth inspiration photo.  Isn't it lovely?




This color scheme just made me think of poinsettias.  I couldn't decide between making a red or white poinsettia, so I compromised and made both!  haha!



The wine bottle tag has a rustic white base, a sentiment stamped with Ocean Tides ink, and a decorative swirly-do (yes, I'm sure that's the correct name for it :) from the Over Under Easy stamp set in Pure Poppy ink.  



The poinsettia petals are die cut from Pure Poppy card stock, the leaves from Pinefeather, and the center from Limeade Ice.  The entire flower is glittered up with stardust pens and Stickles.



The pillow box is die cut from Pure Poppy card stock, and the sentiment from Bells & Boughs is stamped in gold and heat embossed in glittery powder.  


The sentiment doesn't stand out as much as I would have preferred, but will have to chalk it up as a learning experience!  



The poinsettia petals are die cut from Rustic White card stock, the leaves from Pinefeather, and the center from Limeade Ice.  Again, the entire flower is glittered up, but this time using only Stickles.



Thanks ever so much for stopping by!

  6. Those are the most amazing poinsettias I've seen in a long time. They jump right off the page. The white one especially. (I'd even leave the sentiment off if you make more - just let that amazing bloom shine.)
