Emboss Resist

So I missed PTI's Emboss Resist challenge by several hours. Whoops. But I made one anyway, and I really like how it turned out. I used white shimmer cardstock, and in real life, it still shimmers under the leaves. Pretty. There are also flat rhinestone stickers in the flower middles. Did I say how much I love those? I flipped some polka dot ribbon over (I liked the width) and heat embossed the sentiment. And believe it or not, this is my first card to use buttons!
Paper: PTI White, white shimmer
Ink: SU Gable Green, Pink Passion, Versamark
Stamps: PTI Background Basics-Petal Power, Turning a New Leaf, Friends 'Til the End
Other: PTI Raspberry Fizz polka dot ribbon, buttons, slivers of Offray ribbon, white embossing powder, flat rhinestone stickers

  2. This came out so pretty and springy, I love it! The rhinestones:)

  3. Congrats on your first button card!
    It's beautiful. I don't know what reverse resist is though.

    I'm off to find out.

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.
