Masculine & Feminine

It's not often that I need to make a masculine card more feminine, but yesterday I did just that. I wanted to use this layout for a friend, but it needed a little something girly. The first card is the Father's Day card I made for my husband, and the second is one of a set I made for my friend.
I added a little glitter via a clear Stardust pen on a few leaves, swapped the twill for a scalloped polka dot, and shifted the focal image just a bit. Voila!

Card #1:
Paper: PTI White, Dark Chocolate, SU Certainly Celery
Ink: SU Chocolate Chip, Certainly Celery, Versamark
Stamps: PTI Father Knows Best, Pond Life, Out On a Limb
Other: PTI Dark Chocolate twill ribbon

Card #2:
Paper: PTI white, Dark Chocolate, Bitty Dot pattern, SU Certainly Celery
Ink: SU Chocolate Chip, Certainly Celery, Versamark
Stamps: PTI Father Knows Best, Everyday Classics, Out On a Limb
Other: SU Scallop punch, Sakura clear Stardust pen

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!

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.
