PTI Challenge


This weeks challenge at PTI is to Create a project using inspiration you have seen during the November release. You can find the challenge HERE There are so many wonderful projects, but I love snow flakes so I chose this card by Betsy Veldman. 


Betsy's card has a stenciled background and a layered tag on top. One of my good friends owns a winery and a wine tasting room. I have been busy making some wine tags for her to give to customers. Most of them are holiday tags, but I did some generic ones, fall and Thanksgiving and birthday. I decided I would make one more tag and copy some of Betsy's features.

My tag.

Betsy started by stenciling a background. I did not have the stencil so I used a Spellbinders die and made one of my own. and sponged on some blue and green ink and added some splatters. I used last month's kit from PTI and made a tag for the top of my wine bottle tag. Betsy used green parakeet which I don't have  so I came as close as I could with green leaf and aqua mist for the IO snow flake.I added some blue glitter paper under my die cut tag for some shine. I added some twine from the kit and a sequin to finish my project. The wine bottle tag is also from PTI.

  2. Ooooh yes, Betsy's card is fabulous as is your beautiful tag. Love the colors and that it IS a Tag lol That snowflake is magnificent and I love the greenery too! Merry Merry!

  3. How clever of you to make your own stencil. I love the softer colors that you used on your background for the tag. Putting the sparkles behind the tag and adding the sprig of greens really give it a festive look. You have a friend that has a winery? Lucky You!

  4. So fabulous in every way and I love the stencil you made. Your tag is so beautiful with that snowflake and the sparkles.

  5. Love the snowflake...such a festive and pretty tag!

  6. Kathy your tags are beautiful!! I adore that lime green you put in there... Wonderful!

  7. What a beautiful snowflake tag with the added warmth of the greenery! Your die made a perfect stencil. I keep saying to myself I'm going to do that, but I just keep coloring and don't take the time for anything else. Love the way the tag die cuts the holes and you added the sparkle. It makes a perfect frame for your pretty snowflake!
