Boy Striped Birthday

I finally got my hands on PTI Faux Ribbon. I don't know why I was on the fence for so long. It's such a great set. I love the idea of making my own stripes, and the sentiments are great, too. The hard part is keeping the stamps straight, but Nichole's idea of placing it in the guide of my paper cutter really helps! Here are some boy birthday cards with Enchanted Evening and Orange Zest. Great boy colors!

All cards:
Paper: PTI White, Enchanted Evening, Orange Zest
Ink: PTI Enchanted Evening, SU Pumpkin Pie
Stamps: PTI Faux Ribbon, B&C Monogram (the dotted circle)
Other: 1 5/8" punch, 1 3/4" punch, 2" punch

  1. These cards are great! I love Faux Ribbon for this feature too. (That was my very first PTI stamp set, long ago!!!) I think you have inspired me to make some boy b-day cards. Good idea since 2 of my boys have b-days in the next 2 weeks.

  2. Orange and blue are definitely boy colors and these hit the mark for boy bday cards. Faux Ribbon is still on my wish list. One of these days it will make it to the top.

  3. GREAT boy colors!!! I love the cards!

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.
