CPS/Papertrey Challenge

This next card challenge is a collaboration between Papertrey and Card Positioning Systems (CPS), which issues sketch challenges each week. I have tried and tried to copy and paste the sketch here, but to no avail. Anywho, this is my little (3 x 3) Valentine for the challenge.

Here is a different angle to show how sparkly the heart really is. I wish I could capture glitter with my camera better. Also, that ribbon was on sale for 55 cents a spool! LOVE it!

Paper: PTI White, Lemon Tart
Ink: SU Real Red, PTI Berry Sorbet
Stamps: PTI Heart Prints
Other: Offray Ribbon, Essential Glue Pad, superfine glitter, dimensional tape

  1. Cute card, neat accents and love what you did with the CPS sketch.

  2. Whoohoo! 50 cents a spool?! Cool! I LOVE the sparkle on the heart! And while I struggled to capture the sparkle on the heart on my card for the PTI (not CPS) sketch challenge (lost the sunlight, but even worse....the darn wind kept blowing my card over....kerplunk!!!), you did great!!

    On a side are always so friendly on the PTI forum and its always nice to post and blog with people who are so friendly! :>

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 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.
