My Mom's Birthday Gift

I wanted to wait to post this until she actually opened it, so this is the gift set of cards I made my mom for her birthday.  The card may look a little familiar...instead this time I used the flourish from With Sympathy in white on vellum.  I wanted her to have the flexibility of using customized labels, so I included those as well.  The box is Lauren Meader's "Captured Card Case" Timeless Template.  My first one--I'm so proud...Oh, my parents have pomegranate trees in their backyard (oh, how I miss them), so I thought Purely Pomegranate paper would be appropriate :).
Here's the selection of sentiments.

The card case and the example card...

Paper: PTI White, vellum,  SU Purely Pomegranate
Ink: PTI Fresh Snow, Versafine Onyx
Stamps: PTI With Sympathy, Men of Life, Women of Life, SU Warmest Regards
Other: Labels-Office Max, PTI true black 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!

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 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.
