Simple little card

I was looking through my stash and realized I hadn't posted this card before. This was one of two different cards from a class I taught last fall at a church craft day. It was a lot of fun teaching my friends how to use PTI stamps--most of them hadn't used clear stamps before.
This card is so quick and easy, but the red and black really stand out. I punched a square window in the Pure Poppy cardstock, then stamped away. I love that little trail.
Paper: PTI White, Pure Poppy
Ink: Versafine Onyx, SU Real Red
Stamps: PTI Little Lady
Other: (purple) Marvy square punch--2 1/4"?

  1. I love this big ladybug - I just broke down and bought this set - so many years after it was released! but still haven't inked it up - the dotted flight pattern is so fun with it! perfect colors for it too - very pretty card!

  2. So pretty! I should ink up mine again! :) Love that the trail extends onto the poppy!

  3. Hey, I think I have some of those cards! By the way, have I mentioned how awesome you are? Whenever I need a card for a gift or a thank you, I am ready to go. You rock and have a safe trip!

  4. Super cute Cheryl!!! I love the ladybug trail!!

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.
