Christmas 1

Here are a few clean and simple Christmas cards I made for PTI's October GSS. I have lots, so buckle up and enjoy the ride for the next few days...
This middle card is a non-folded card--meaning the person is supposed to write in the blank white space. I always make a bunch of these kind for my kids to send thank-yous to those generous souls who send them gifts.

  1. I really like the snowflake card, neat to see it in those colors. Another person I need to give me tips on the proper method of entering GSS. :)

  2. Love the middle card. What a great idea.

  3. These are great as well! Love the one with the snowflake.

  4. These are all so cute, love that thank you card! What a great idea!

  5. These are great! I love the white snowflake against the red circle!

  6. Great thank you cards. I especially like the red snowflake and the dotted ribbon. With the green background, the snowflake really popped.

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.
