It's In the Bag Challenge

Papertrey Ink is celebrating its 2nd birthday this month, and Nichole Heady has issued a challenge to create a bag of some kind. Here's my contribution, a bag to hold a set of cards:

I have used this template many times when giving sets of cards to friends. It's just a fun, paper version of a gift bag, and it will easily hold 10 cards and envelopes. The ribbon is threaded through eyelets, and I used the same format for the bag as I did for the cards (which you have seen before :).

Here is the gift ensemble...

Paper: PTI Raspberry Fizz, RF Patterns, PTI White SU Gable Green
Ink: SU Pink Passion
Stamps: PTI B&C Monogram Edition, Rustic Branches
Other: PTI Raspberry Fizz Satin Dots Ribbon, SU Scalloped Circle Punch, 1 3/8 circle punch, eyelets

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.
