It's a Papertrey Kinda Day!

I have a couple PTI cards to share today! I buy the stamp sets, every month, religiously, since the beginning, but haven't had the chance to sit down and play with them much lately! This week I am determined because these are some of my very favorite stamps! First up is this fun card for today's Color Challenge on SCS! The color challenge is Real Red, Pink Pirouette, and Pear Pizazz. The color combo made me think of this fun Christmas paper from last year called Jolly by Golly by Cosmo!
I used the cute snowman from Holiday Button Bits! I realize he looks a bit crooked on the card, I may have mounted the circle a little cockeyed, dangit!  You know what else? I'm super proud because I finally used some FLOWER SOFT! I've had this white Flower Soft for ages and never use it! I thought it would make good "snow" and I think I'm right:) 
The snowflakes are from my new Snowflake Die-namics by MFT! These are SUPER intricate and beautiful snowflakes, totally love them!
OH and how could I forget the sentiment? The dessert option is handwriting! Well, I happen to have Dawn McVey's LOVELY handwriting in the form of her PTI stamps! This one is from Signature Christmas, don't you love it?

Okay, next card up uses the fabulous Vintage Picnic!
I used this week's Mojo Monday sketch for the layout!
So a couple peeps over at the PTI forums have a challenge going where they choose three stamp sets and you just make a card with one of the stamp sets! This is such a fabulous idea because it really gets you USING the stamps you buy, kwim? So in the spirit of the fall season, I stamped the pumpkins in the basket! I also used some older SU! paper called Autumn Vine (I think?)

Well that's all I have today! Thanks *SO* much for stopping by today:) Have a FAB day!

Both of these cards are absolutely gorgeous! I have yet to use Flower Soft but after seeing your snow, I am convinced to give it a try. Your Vintage Picnic card is so elegant. You are an awesome colorer!

Love your use of rich, deep colors and your layering and the way you added dimension with the snowflakes (they look like they are floating off the page). Also, your stitching on the harvest card added some nice touches (which I haven't tried yet). Very nice work! One of my favorites in the challenge.
