Primas and Leaves

More Turning a New Leaf...Can't resist. One of my favorite color combos is raspberry and lime green (and the real-life flavors taste good together, too). Here are a couple of attempts with Prima flowers. I don't know which one I like better--I'm a little wary of making cards where the inside is dark, rather than white. Can people read writing on that color?
It's hard to tell, but I added a little sparkle to the centers of the flowers with a Sakura Stardust clear pen. I like a little bling now and then.
Both cards:
Paper: PTI White, Raspberry Fizz
Ink: SU Gable Green, Pink Passion
Stamps: PTI Turning a New Leaf, Giga Guide Lines
Other: Prima flowers, Sakura Stardust clear pen, corner rounder

  1. I like both of them! Usually if I have a dark base color I'll add a lighter colored piece inside that coordinates so that I can write/stamp on that. Or you could use white ink inside too.

  2. Beautiful cards! When I have dark card bases I too just add a light color cardstock panel inside.

  6. Beautiful Cheryl! I love those colors together too!

    I usually add a lighter color layer to the insides of my dark-based cards (that's when all the paper insert with the color names from PTI come in handy!)

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!

Lil' Inker Designs Mini Release Blog Hop

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 card...so 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…

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.
