Twins!

A friend of mine from high school is expecting twins very soon, so I thought I'd make her a set of cards she could use for thank-yous or announcements or whatever. Yes, it means I cut out 20 onesies...This friend has had ultrasound after ultrasound, and she does not want to find out what kind of twins they will be. I am certain the suspense would just kill me, if I were in her shoes (I've had 6, and I've tried to find out with each one). So I made these cards as gender-neutral as possible, and I hope she likes them.


The onesie on the right is popped up on dimensional tape thus:


Paper: SU Sage Shadow, PTI Vintage Cream, Dark Chocolate, Chocolate Remix patterns
Ink: SU Chocolate Chip
Stamps: PTI Bitty Baby Blessings
Other: Dimensional tape, PTI Ocean Tides satin ribbon, SU scallop punch

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 card...so 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.
