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

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.
