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...
Anya CASEs Belinda

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'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 fun and very unique. I'm off to peruse Diane's blog and find something to case!

  2. Super fun challenge, Cheryl! Your card is beautiful!!

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 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.
