WCMD PTI Challenge #3-India

PTI's challenge #3 takes us to India. Lots of gold, jewels and bright and interesting color schemes. Normally I wouldn't have added the New Leaf green (I would've gone for lime), but it seemed to fit better. There are itty-bitty rhinestones along the background, and I love these things! They are flat stickers, but they sparkle and look like three-dimensional jewels. Actually, they remind me of Barbie earrings...I got a little crazy with them, and the tweezers and I became good friends. Gold embossing is also something I don't do very often, but I love the look with this background. The bracket for the sentiment is actually a base for a Christmas tree in PTI's Tree Trimming Trio set.
Paper: SU Taken with Teal, PTI Raspberry Fizz

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.

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.
