PTI~Festival of Lights & Keep It Simple: Hanukkah

Hi there! Today I’m joining Papertrey Ink as we countdown to the October Release. Today I’m sharing a few projects featuring the new Festival of Lights & Keep It Simple: Hanukkah stamp set.PTI~Festival of LightsThis first card uses the Festival of Lights stamp set. I created a sort of Jewish Menorah for Hanukkah. I popped up the panel over some Harvest Gold striped paper as well as a thin strip of Enchanted Evening.

PTI~Keep It Simple: HanukkahI used post it tape to mask off some strips and then used my ink blender to blend in the ink. Not sure if this is Hanukkah festive or Hanukkah sinking in the ocean?? I tried ya’ll.

  10. Hi Laura,

    I am so disappointed I don’t profess the Jewish Faith. Nevertheless I admire and went gaga with all the cards and tag you presented us with. They are so perfect and classy and the color combination is to die for!

    Cariños,

  11. Thanks for all the inspiration. I’m not Jewish, but I do send out a few Hanukkah cards each year. I need all the inspiration I can get. The two images I keep going back to are the menorah and the Star of David, and I like your fresh take on them. But it’s also nice to see cards that step outside the old staple images, and blue blue blue.
