Papertrey Princesses Challenge--Score it

Pam issued this new challenge--to use scoring creatively on a card. I've never done diagonal scoring before, so I thought I'd try it. Then I became a lunatic and decided to put little teeny punched circles on all of the intersections. But I love how it turned out.

This card is for my niece, who just found out that she will be having twins this fall. They are her first babies, and she's a little freaked out, but I know she'll be fine. In fact, I think she'll be a fantastic mom!

Here's a closeup of the scoring and punched dots...
Paper: PTI White, Aqua Mist, Lemon Tart, Bitty Dots patterns
Ink: SU Chocolate Chip
Stamps: Bitty Baby Blessings
Other: Scor-Pal, SU double circle punch, PTI Lemon Tart polka dot satin ribbon, SU Only Orange marker

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.
