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.
The Ladies Auxiliary (Ballantine Reader's Circle)

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

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 card...so 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.
