Monograms for a friend

I made a set of 10 cards for a friend's bridal shower the other day. I just embossed in white the scrolly image from PTI's With Sympathy onto Blue Bayou cardstock. The monogram is also embossed and raised up on dimensional tape. The ribbon really is Dark Chocolate, I promise. I had the most difficult time photographing it this time--don't know why.

Paper: PTI White, SU Bayou Blue
Ink: Versamark
Stamps: PTI With Sympathy, B&C Mono Edition, Ambassador Monogram alpha
Other: White Filigree embossing powder, PTI Dark Chocolate satin ribbon, dimensional tape

  9. Hi, Cheryl, I'm sure your friend loved them. A few weeks ago, I was searching for wedding monograms for my best friend's wedding. While browsing on the internet, I came across Acorn Sales ( and found a huge variety of monogram stamps and seals. I immediately ordered a monogram stamp, which got delivered soon. The quality is so good that I'm planning to order some more stamps for my official work as well. Do visit their website sometime!

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!

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.
