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! :>

    Hope you're having fun Not doing laundry!!! (I swear there is a laundry breeding program in my house..........I finish five loads and suddenly there are five more...........huh?!)

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.
