Raspberry Suite #5

Another color challenge...I thought this would be easy, but I found myself staring and rearranging for an hour and a half.  Silly.  I think I get stuck in a layout rut sometimes, and my brain has a hard time digging itself out.  I am happy with this final product, though.  I do not have any Smoky Shadow ink or paper from PTI yet, so I sponged some black cardstock with white ink.  I also used Versafine Onyx ink for the handle, but I stamped it off once.  Clever me.

In a brief a-ha moment, I decided to loop the ribbon differently, and I like how it turned out.  I just put a little adhesive in between the loopy things and stuck them down.  (Mono runner--it holds the ribbon better than Mono Multi glue).  I haven't ever tried sewing on cards like many of you have, so this is my version.

Paper: PTI White, SU Pixie Pink, unknown cheapy black
Ink: PTI Fresh Snow, SU Pixie Pink, Versafine Onyx
Stamps: PTI Polka Dot Basics, Scattered Showers
Other: PTI Raspberry Fizz satin ribbon

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.
