Papertrey Princess Challenge--BethieJ

I just realized that this card qualifies for Bethie's challenge to do something new and springy--I think this card achieves both goals--those dies are new, and I've used flowers and spring colors in a new combination for me.
Just having fun with Papertrey's new dies--Beautiful Blooms II #1 and #3 and Rickrack. I've always loved the cover of this book--The Ladies' Auxiliary by Tova Mirvis. Being different from the group can be beautiful. I also really love the book--it is such a great discussion book and is so uniquely written. I highly recommend it.

Paper: PTI Spring Rain, White, Plum Pudding, True Black, SU Gable Green
Ink: Versamark
Stamps: PTI Friends 'Til the End
Other: PTI dies: Beautiful Blooms II #1&#3, Rickrack, circle punches

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.
