It's Raining, It's Pouring

Here's another attempt at using up scraps...Last month I made a bunch of bridal shower invites with the pink circles, and I had two sheets left over. These are what I made...One for a friend who recently lost her sister, and the other for another friend who works tirelessly in a difficult and sometimes thankless job at church that I used to do as well.
Here's a tip for the circles: Use the big, open circle stamp from PTI's Polka Dot Basics, then go back over them randomly with the smaller circle to mimic the pattern on the umbrellas. I also added a little sparkle with a clear Stardust pen.
Paper: SU Pixie Pink, PTI White
Ink: SU Pink Passion, Versafine Onyx, PTI Fresh Snow
Stamps: PTI Scattered Showers, Polka Dot Basics

  1. Oh my! I *love* how you did the "bubbles" - I would never have thought to use the lined up polka dot rows and make it feel random just by adding the little ones around. TFS!

  2. Cheryl, These are great. I love the color combo and the design. So sad to hear about a loss of a friend.

  3. So pretty! I love the little hints of sparkle! I'm sorry for your friend's loss.

  4. So pretty! Love the color combo -- sorry for your friend's loss!

  5. Two awesome cards! I dont own this set but its on my wish list.

  6. This is too cool!! Thanks for the tip using the polka dot stamp set, that is a clever idea!!

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.
