Red Nordic Winter

My new favorite Waltzingmouse stamp set is Nordic Winter. LOVE. It looks great in any color, but I especially love it embossed in white on red. Not too Christmasy, but still wintery, right?
It took me forever to figure out what to put in front of that pattern, because it's so delicious. I decided to go simple. I ended up making 10 of these.
Paper: PTI White, Pure Poppy, True Black
Ink: Versamark
Stamps: WMS Nordic Winter, PTI Women of Life
Other: White Filigree embossing powder, dimensional tape

  6. All that thought paid off, the black was the absolute right choice. It pops against the red and white. Nordic Winter is my favorite set too!

  7. This is a fabulous card! Im a great Scandi style lover and you truly inspired me with this red-n-white embossed pattern. I do have the same set of stamps from the Waltzing Mouse but I've never tried embossing this pattern as I wasnt sure if the details will come out nicely. Yours look great!

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.
