Colorful Wishing You

You know when you have an idea in your head, and you get excited about putting it to paper, and you try it 1000 times, and you still can't make it work?  Yeah, that's what happened to this card.  Love this stamp set by Mama Elephant, though...I sort of attempted to try to maybe enter this into their competition last month, but nope.  Sigh.

Paper: PTI White, Blueberry Sky, Harvest Gold, Berry Sorbet
Ink: PTI Smokey Shadow, Versafine Onyx
Stamps: Mama Elephant So Breezy
Other: Copic markers, dimensional tape, square punch for ends of flags

  2. Oh, how I love this community. You know how you don't really like how your card turned out even after you tried doing it a thousand ways from Sunday? The funniest thing about that, Cheryl, is that you post it anyway and it turns out there are people who are so very thankful you did, thankful you made it, and thankful they got to see inked-up-sunshine radiating from a card!!

National Craft Month Celebration Blog Hop

Hello, friends!  I am honored to be a part of the National Craft Month Celebration Blog Hop with Right at Home Stamps.  Hopefully you've come from Linda's blog.

We are celebrating our hobby of papercrafting by bringing our community together and spending a day doing what we love.  Come hop with all of us, leave comments along the way, and you will be entered to win this awesome stamp set:



It's called "Make Something Beautiful", and it is being released today.  It's so fun to have a stamp set that is dedicated to our love of all things crafty--scrapbooking, painting, cardmaking, sewing, and any and all combinations of the above.  Here are two cards I've made with this set.  Those tools begged to be paper-pieced with some sparkly silver paper!

For this one I heat embossed the images in white on navy cardstock, as well as fussy cutting the tools out of the silver paper.  Then I used a Copic marker to shade the hearts and sentiment in red for a pop of color.

Papertrey Blog Hop-March

It has been a long time, but I thought I'd jump back in to the Papertrey Blog Hop this month.  I couldn't resist creating something with these beautiful patterns as inspiration.


Here's my take on it:

I used the Anniversary Set: Painted Petals, a combination of heat embossing, coloring with Copics on that heat embossing, fussy cutting and die cutting.  Very fun.
PTI White and Dark Indigo cardstock Ink: Versamark, Copics, PTI Hawaiian Shores, Blueberry Sky, Raspberry Fizz, Lovely Lady, HA Navy



Do it anyway.

Oh how much I've needed to hear this all week.  
Thank you to Beth for a very insightful and thought-provoking post.  More cards to come soon.
