Catching up

Just catching up a little--I am sure I won't post this often or with this many pictures, but thought I'd share some more.

I like the simplicity of this one, and the egg and dart pattern looked like feathers to me. It's hard to tell, but the bottom edge is cut around the stamping.
*Edited to add: I must have been channeling this card by Dawn McVey. I knew I'd seen the idea somewhere...

I'm sure I didn't come up with this layout myself, but I can't remember which fabulous stamper did this first. I used my Scor-Pal to create the embossed box and edge. I just think this is great for a new baby.

Some Berry Sorbet and Guide Lines...The top one I used the Stardust pen again, and the bottom one I heat embossed with white powder. If you look closely at the top one, I stamped the grid in Versamark first so the lines wouldn't show. I freehanded the bottom one without the grid, because I didn't want it embossed, too. The bottom one looks a little Hawaiian to me, like a Reyn Spooner shirt. No sentiments yet, but I'll keep these on hand.

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.
