MIM #44 Glitter Masking 1

This week's Make It Monday has proven to be one of my very favorite techniques. This super-duper-ultrafine glitter is fantastic, but do not inhale it! Here's my first take on it:
For the stripe on the ornament, I masked with a small strip of backing paper. For the polka dots, I masked first with the big circle, then after the green glitter, I punched holes in the circle mask with my Crop-a-Dile, sprinkled red glitter, then removed the mask and sprinkled white glitter. The sentiment is stamped first on cardstock then covered with a scor-tape die cut and glittered. I thought the background paper needed some bling, so I colored over some stripes with the Sakura Stardust red pen. Silver cord is threaded through a small hole made by my paper piercer, and bows are adhered with scor-tape.

Paper: PTI White, Candy Cane Prints
Ink: PTI Pure Poppy
Stamps: PTI Christmas Blessings
Other: PTI double-ended banner die, Sakura Stardust pen-red (for stripes), 1 1/4" circle punch, 1" circle punch, 5/8" circle punch, SU silver cord, Scor-Tape sheets, Ultrafine glitter

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.
