Raspberry Suite #3

Another Dawn McVey challenge...This one was a lot easier. :)
This color combo is just beautiful.  I used Kraft (SU), PTI's Pure Poppy, Berry Sorbet, Sweet Blush and Vintage Cream.  There are so many possibilities--in fact, I made two cards with it. I needed to stock up my b'day card supply.  This first one uses Friends 'Til the End (again--love it!).  I just looped some ribbon scraps to the side to add a little interest.

I love how this second one turned out.  I wish I could capture it better in a photo.  Each of the circles is punched out of different colored cardstock.  I used 1 1/4", 1 3/8" and 1/2" circle punches.  To get the ring, I punched the (smaller) 1 1/4" first, then went back over it with  the 1 3/8".  Lots of fun!

Other: PTI ribbon--Berry Sorbet, Sweet Blush, Vintage Cream satin

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.
