Big Valentines

...and here are a couple of full-sized cards, made with Raspberry Fizz patterned paper by PTI.  I love, love, love that color.  I love it so much that I had a prom dress that color in 1989.  It had big, puffy sleeves, and I had shoes dyed to match.  Don't tell me yours didn't look just like it.

I accidentally grabbed my red ink pad when I stamped "sweet", but it actually turned out fine.
Card #1:
Paper: PTI White, Raspberry Fizz, RF patterns
Ink: SU Passion Pink, Versamark
Stamps: PTI Limitless Labels, Sweet Love
Other: Scalloped square punch, PTI white satin ribbon, SU silver cord, dimensional tape, silver embossing powder

Card #2:

  1. What great cards, I really love that first one. The colors look so good together.

  2. Looks like a fine accident to me! I accidnetally stamped using L'Amore red istead of Pure Poppy on one of my Valentines cards, and that worked fine, too! Going to go scan the rest of your recents posts, lol, I see a baby card below!!

  3. Love that Raspberry fizz patterned paper. I'm so wishing I had bought it! I love how you used sentiments from older sets. I need to show my older sets a little more love!!

    (my prom dress sounds a little bit similar - except it was navy blue. And it was 1995)

  4. So pretty! Love how you used the Raspberry Fizz papers :)

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.
