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!

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.
