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

  1. A stunner!! LOVE the black touches, a very classy little number Cheryl!!

  2. Absolutely super - I like the splash of black!!

  3. The embossing makes it very "real" (knitted) looking!

  4. wow oh WOW!!! This is stunning!! I really love the red, it really makes a statement.

  5. Cheryl this is FABULOUS!!! I so want this set too!!!
    Have a GREAT day!

  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!

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.
