Faux Fun-WMS Sketch

Claire is hosting a contest in honor of her 1 year anniversary with Walzingmouse Stamps. If you have not seen her work or her stamps, RUN to her blog and website! This girl is simply amazing. This card is my take on the sketch (with a little creative license sprinkled in...the rounded corners count as circles, right?). Here's the sketch:

I love, love, love this stamp from Waltzingmouse Stamps! I bought the whole set based on this stamp, and I couldn't wait to heat emboss it. I also love that there is an opening for the sentiment. Great work, Claire! The card is 4 1/4" x 4 1/4".
Paper: PTI White, Black, Berry Sorbet
Ink: Versafine Onyx, Versamark
Stamps: WMS Faux Fun Circles, PTI Everyday Classics
Other: Filigree embossing powder, corner chomper

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.
