Raspberry Suite #6

This challenge surprised me, because I ended up really liking this color combination.  At first, I thought it screamed '80's, but I suppose it all depends on the proportions of color.  I had a lot of fun, and I made 2 cards.  I think I might even make more...

For the first card I used all kinds of circles and dots from various sets.  I've been waiting to use those concentric ones from PTI's Father Knows Best for a really long time.  I like how it turned out.  I also traced a Maya Road flower onto Aqua Mist cardstock and cut it out.

I spent a lot of time on this one, trying to get it right.  What I had in my head didn't translate exactly, but I still like it.  Those are Maya Road flowers, and I just tied a knot in the ribbon, then pushed it through the center hole.

Card #1:
Paper: PTI White, Berry Sorbet, Aqua Mist
Ink: PTI Berry Sorbet, Aqua Mist, Fresh Snow, SU Chocolate Chip
Stamps: PTI Father Knows Best, Women of Life, Polka Dot Basics, Everyday Classics
Other: PTI Dark Chocolate Satin Ribbon

Card #2:
Paper: PTI White, Dark Chocolate, Berry Sorbet, Bitty Dot
Ink: PTI Berry Sorbet
Stamps: PTI Friends 'Til the End
Other: Maya Road Flowers, PTI Aqua Mist twill and Fresh Snow satin ribbons, dimensional tape

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.
