Friend Gift

A dear friend of mine is moving far away today. My whole family is sad--her boys and my boys played so well together. Our ten-year-olds actually share a birthday, and they have been the best of friends. So I put together a little gift for her of some monogrammed cards. She has been so encouraging to me in my card making, and for some reason, she is a big fan. Love her!
I embossed With Sympathy again in white on SU Brocade Blue cardstock. I wanted to do something a little different with the monogram, so I created a little loopy flag thing out of paper to go underneath. I was channeling Claire for a moment :) Here's a closeup:

Paper: PTI White, SU Brocade Blue, Michael's black
Ink: Versamark, Versafine Onyx, SU Brocade Blue
Stamps: PTI With Sympathy, Trajan Alpha, B&C Monogram Edition
Other: Filigree Embossing Powder, 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.
