Papertrey Princess Challenge--CASE it!

Good afternoon, ladies! It's my turn to host a Papertrey Princesses challenge, and I thought we could do something to showcase each other. What I would like us to do is to CASE at least one card or project from one other person in our group. Copy it, change up the colors, find inspiration in it--whatever you like. Please link to your person's blog for all to see. To make it easier, we'll just go alphabetically and pick the next person on the list. So...

I get to case Dana. First of all, she is a master of color combinations. She always makes harmony out of colors my brain can't combine, and her cards are simply beautiful. After several pathetic attempts to CASE her work, I've determined that I cannot hold a candle to this girl. Here are two of my favorites:


I must confess that for the life of me, I can't figure out how she masked this flower so well. I tried it three times, and I failed miserably. Nope, not going to show it. I'll just let you bask in its beauty.

I love this second card because of the colors. Dana uses fall colors so well. Here's my not-so-great attempt (BTW, Summer Sunrise really is prettier than that. For the life of me, I cannot photograph it without it looking greenish.):


Now it's your turn!

Paper: PTI Summer Sunrise
Ink: PTI Fresh Snow, Berry Sorbet, Lemon Tart, Summer Sunrise, SU Chocolate Chip, Certainly Celery
Stamps: PTI Green Thumb, Turning a New Leaf, Out On a Limb, Flower Garden
Other: Nestablilities, PTI Berry Sorbet satin ribbon

  1. OMG Cheryl, you made me blush with this post. How nice of you to say such sweet things! (I use Eclipse Masking Tape in the large roll size for all my masking...it's amazing.) Your take on my fall card is perfect for spring! I love how the flowers are reaching out of the pot and your BG is lovely. The colors blend so well together. The pink ribbon and sentiment really take this card to the next level. Great job.
    I love the idea of this challenge too...so fun and very unique. I'm off to peruse Diane's blog and find something to case!

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.

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.
*I found out that Mother Teresa did not, in fact, say this, but I wish I know who did.
