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.)

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.
