Papertrey Princesses Challenge--My Turn

Alright, ladies...It's my turn for a challenge (nevermind the fact that I should have posted this last week--oops!). This one was born out of necessity, as I often find myself low on supplies. Your challenge is to use any colors EXCEPT white or cream (not even ink or ribbon--or anything else white or cream). This summer I was saving up to make a PTI order, and I watched as my precious white cardstock dwindled away. I had to think of alternate ideas, and it was helpful for me to think outside my white box. Good luck, and I'm excited to see what you create.
This card uses Borders & Corners Monogram Edition on Kraft for the background and clear embossing on the sentiment. I have trouble with masculine cards, but I think this turned out pretty well.
Paper: PTI Enchanted Evening, Kraft
Ink: Versamark, PTI Enchanted Evening, SU Real Red, Garden Green
Stamps: PTI Birthday Basics, B&C Monogram Ed.
Other: PTI Pure Poppy Twill

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…

Erin Lee Creative January Release

I used some pearly embossing paste with this stencil, and as you can see, the results are nice and crisp.  I popped up the "hello" (Big Hello Love Die) on some foam for more dimension, and the card is complete.  With a great background like that, a simple word die will finish it without competing.

Next up we have two products: Leopard Background and Let's Mak…
