March Guest Star Stamper Entries 1

These are 3 of my entries for PTI's Guest Star Stamper contest for March. This category is Best Use of Friends 'Til the End This is my new favorite set, and I just can't get enough of it. The sentiments are great, and the flowers are just beautiful. For all of these, I heat embossed the images with white powder onto colored paper, then I cut them out. Tedious, but so pretty. I also wanted to incorporate black in the center, so I just filled it in with black marker.

My sister gave me a birthday gift, tied up with this yummy ribbon. I just had to use it--the colors are perfect. I didn't want to compete with it, since the flower is also so big, so I just stamped directly on it with Versafine Onyx ink. It's amazingly crisp.

I am also loving the new Bitty Dot Basics paper.

All of these cards use basically the same supplies:
Paper: PTI White, Bitty Dot Basics, Raspberry Fizz, SU Green Galore (#1)
Ink: Versafine Onyx, Versamark
Stamps: PTI Friends 'Til the End
Other: ribbon-Hallmark, PTI Raspberry Fizz satin, Zig black marker, dimensional tape

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.
