Toile Two Ways

I wanted to try out PTI's Fine Linen, and all along I've thought that a tone-on-tone damask or toile pattern would look beautiful with this color. I had a hard time pairing it with another color, but surprisingly, PTI's Ocean Tides works really well. These stamps are from a MAMBI set, and unfortunately, the quality of the stamps themselves is pretty bad. I do love the images, though. Here's version 1 with white:
Here's version 2 with Versamark:
Paper: PTI Fine Linen, Vintage Cream, Ocean Tides
Ink: PTI Ocean Tides, Fresh Snow, Versamark
Stamps: MAMBI Toile set, PTI Fillable Frames #1, Communique Curves Sentiments
Other: FF #1 Die, PTI Ocean Tides satin ribbon, white organdy ribbon, dimensional tape

  1. ooh so classy! Love FL with OT. Gosh they work well together. The quality of the stamps is not at all evident, must be your expert skills as they look gorgeous. So glad you were able to kick things into gear and back to blogging. Totally where you belong. ;-)

  2. I love the Fine Linen with Ocean Tides - I have yet to get some FL but I think it's just been added to my next order. And I love both the white ink and Versamark too - slightly different looks but both are great!

  3. Oh that calor combo is great! I have to try it myself! I am partial to the versamark version! I just love how gorgeous that OT ribbon looks against the FL background!

  4. I say versa mark but then I change my mind. I love the OT ribbon, makes me want to touch the computer screen. Really they are both beautiful Cheryl!!!

  5. I love them both, but I simply ADORE the way the white POPS!

  6. Oh my goodness Cheryl, these are so, so pretty. I really like the white on linen base the best, but the OT ribbon treatment from the Versamark one keeps pulling me in too!
    I really, really like that look (white on linen) and am going to ty it out. Thanks!

  7. Oh lovely! I love the way the white looks on the linen base -- it seems to pop more, if you know what I mean? But they're both stamped just fabulously!

  8. I think they are super classy. I love the pleated ribbon, too. I like them both, but the bottom one seems to catch my eye a little bit more. I like the white for the label in the middle. Great cards!

  9. I like them both, but I like the versamark one the best.

  10. Gorgeous!! And just think, if you buy the new floral set out this month from PTI, you will have a set that is fabulous quality with nice bold graphic flowers! :)

  11. Hi Cheryl! I'm so glad you left a comment on my MIM shaker card-it led me to your blog and I have enjoyed looking around. I love your clean and simple style, great color choices, and excellent execution on each and every card I have seen here. I love the toile look above on fine linen, just beautiful! I look forward to seeing more of your elegant cards!

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.
PTI White and Dark Indigo cardstock Ink: Versamark, Copics, PTI Hawaiian Shores, Blueberry Sky, Raspberry Fizz, Lovely Lady, HA Navy

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.
