Rock and Roll

I have a new favorite PTI set. Giga Guide Lines. Wow. The sentiments are nice and big, and there are just enough to cover about every event a person might need. And the images...I love them.
For both of these cards I used the "rock and roll" technique--ink up the stamp in a light color, then roll the edges in a darker color. I love this combination of Summer Sunrise and Berry Sorbet. I think I've been inspired by all of the beautiful fall trees.

Here I tried my hand at a homemade flower--I just punched circles and then folded and twisted and crumpled the paper. I actually was able to separate the layers because PTI cardstock is so thick. Not bad for a first try, right?

Paper: PTI Summer Sunrise, Berry Sorbet, White
Ink: Versamark, PTI Summer Sunrise, Berry Sorbet
Stamps: PTI Giga Guide Lines
Other: PTI Berry Sorbet Satin ribbon, white embossing powder

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.
