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:
Paper: PTI White, RF patterns, SU Gable Green
Ink: PTI Sweet Love, Piece of Cake
Other: SU Scalloped Circle Punch, Circle Punch

  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)

Birthday Card for My Sister

I made this birthday card for my sister, and I love how it turned out.  This large stamp is from Concord & 9th, called Hello, Lovely.  I colored it with Altenew's new markers, then added touches of a gold Wink of Stella marker.  I didn't want the sentiment to compete with the image, so I embossed it in gold on vellum.  Beautiful stamp!

Lil' Inker Designs Mini Release Blog Hop

Hello, friends!  So glad you're here, hopping with us.  (Go here to see the full blog hop order.)  I am excited to show you this brand new stamp from Lil' Inker Designs, which is part of their May Mini Release.  Leave comments on any of the blogs in this hop to enter to win one of the new stamp sets, the new cover plate, or the angel pets goodies!  Details on the Lil' Inker Designs Blog.

This stamp is called Never Regret Being Kind. (Keep hopping, and you'll see more!)


One of the things I love most about this hobby is that it is inherently kind.  So what could be better than a stamp that encourages even more kindness?  Such a great sentiment!

This stamp is easy to use as the focal point of a card...so easy, in fact, that I made 4 right out of the gate!  Each one uses a different technique--this stamp is so versatile.

For my first, I heat embossed the sentiment in white on steel grey cardstock.  I then colored over the embossing with my Copics for a multicolored effect…

Fresh Cut Poppies

I love poppies.  Every time I see a poppy stamp set, I am drawn to it.  I've had my eye on this set from The Ton for a while, and I was lucky enough to borrow it from a friend.  It is really easy to line up the layers, and I love the realistic look.
The sentiment is from Right At Home, and I happen to really love the quote and its author

He really did.  I'm so glad.
