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.

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.
