Playing with labels again


I'm trying to figure out more ways to use address labels to customize sets of cards when I give them as gifts. I'm a bit limited in my punch selection (well, not really, so humor me)--I have no rectangle ones, so paper cutter it is. I embossed the flourish from With Sympathy a few times with clear embossing powder. I haven't tried it yet with irridescent powder, but I will. The label is popped up on dimensional tape.

These would be really easy to make in groups of 10, possibly in single layers as well, just on white cardstock. Hmm. I'm thinking...

Paper: SU Whisper White, PTI Lavender Mist
Ink: Versamark, PTI Lavender Mist
Stamps: PTI With Sympathy, SU Warmest Regards
Other: PTI Lavender Mist satin ribbon, dimensional tape, address label

  1. That stamp embossed with the clear embossing powder is just gorgeous! So elegant, I love it! This would be such a perfect card for a wedding. What bride wouldn't love that? {Well, maybe somebody out there, but I'd have loved it as a bride;) }

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.

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.
