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

  1. This is so pretty - you rocked the emboss resist technique :) You totally can see the shimmer in the cardstock when you blow up the picture - Gorgeous! Love the colors too!

  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.

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.
