I had grand ambitions of making at least 10 sets of cards for Christmas gifts this year, and I think I only made 3. Oh well. This was one of the designs I chose, and I made it in several colors. Berry Sorbet is my favorite, but I also did Summer Sunrise and Pure Poppy. A little masking and a little coloring and there we have it. BTW, if you are scared to color, this mum stamp is the one of the easiest of Year of Flowers series, IMHO.
Paper: PTI White, Berry Sorbet
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Versafine Onyx, Versamark
Stamps: PTI Year of Flowers-Mums, Waltzingmouse Frame It
Other: Copic Markers

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!

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.
