March Guest Star Stamper Entries 2

Here are two more entries for this month's contest. It's funny--I'm not a big color-inner or meticulous cutter, but I am quite smitten by this set. I don't mind the time it takes, because the flowers are just beautiful.

I heat embossed the flower on Kraft cardstock, then I colored it in with a SU Pink Passion marker (the embossed lines are quite forgiving). I like how the Kraft paper darkened the ink a little. I also colored the center again with a black marker. I used my Making Memories slot punch to thread the ribbon. I am a bit nerdy with grammar, so I wish I could have a little comma stamp to put after the "you"...

This one is my favorite of the bunch. I love the springy colors together, and I surprised myself with a little Spring Moss polka dots. I am so NOT a green and orange person (flashbacks of my very '70's home growing up), but these seemed to really work. Again, I heat embossed on Pure Poppy, Berry Sorbet and Summer Sunrise paper and cut out the flowers. (I need another comma.)

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.
