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

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!

Lil' Inker Designs Mini Release Blog Hop

Hello, friends!  So glad you're here, hopping with us.  (Go here to see the full blog hop order.)  I am excited to show you this brand new stamp from Lil' Inker Designs, which is part of their May Mini Release.  Leave comments on any of the blogs in this hop to enter to win one of the new stamp sets, the new cover plate, or the angel pets goodies!  Details on the Lil' Inker Designs Blog.

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.
