Three Projects One Post!

Happy Saturday!  I was able to carve out some crafting time last night and this morning, so I have three projects to share today!  

I am playing along with a few blog challenges.  I am playing along with Papertrey Ink Transformation Tuesday.  I just love this week's concept of changing the theme.  I had a couple of cards that I thought I could change to Christmas themed.  

Here is the first one I posted in the summer.  

 Here is my transformation.

I pretty much just recreated the look using the same stamps and dies when possible.  There were a few things like the pattern papers and sentiment I needed to switch, but I can definitely tell it is the same concept from the "old" to the "new."

Here is a close up of the focal detailing.  I had a to use a die cut sentiment instead of a stamped one.

For this card I used 
PTI sets called Rosie Posie and Rosie Posie Step 2 (retired)
Bold Borders: Yuletide die (for sentiment)

For my second card, I played along with the same Papertrey Ink Transformation Tuesday because I need more Christmas cards.  

Here is my before card that I posted last month.

Here is my transformation card using a Christmas theme.

I created the basic layout with a stamped background panel.  However, with it being a Christmas card, I tried to keep the sentiment panel and accenting not as bulky for easier mailing.

Here is a closeup of the sentiment portion and layered edger detailing.

For my final project today, I am playing along with this week's Papertrey Ink Make It Monday Challenge.  We are to use a banner die to make a card or banner.  I needed a banner tag for a hostess wine gift. I am also playing along with Just Us Girls Inspiration Challenge and Freshly Made Sketches with my wine tag.

I have a few photos of the wine tag I created.

Here is the picture of it on the wine bottle ready for delivery!
I apologize for the picture quality as it is rainy and cloudy here today.

As always thanks so much for stopping by!
