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!

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!

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.
