PTI Paint By Number Challenge

Today's PTI Anniversary challenge is to use a particular color palette and cutting recipe to make a card, in honor of the new line of acrylic paints. I have to say I'm intrigued, since my painting and card making worlds have never collided in such a way before. Anyway, here is the palette I used--I have to say, I would never in a million years put these five colors together voluntarily, and I am secretly jealous of anyone whose first initial is between N and Z. I was pleasantly surprised with the result, though. Who knew? Okay, Nichole Heady did, of course.
These colors seemed pretty masculine to me, so I went with it. Did I mention how much I love Turning a New Leaf? Well, I do. I decided to tear the paper, rather than use scallops, and I made the Lemon Tart strip narrower, tucking it underneath.
Paper: PTI Vintage Cream, Ocean Tides, Spring Moss, Lemon Tart, Kraft
Ink: Versamark, Ocean Tides
Stamps: PTI Turning a New Leaf, Birthday Basics

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!

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.
