Gallery Idol Fail #1

Aw, poop.  I uploaded a bunch of cards to enter the Gallery Idol contest, and I checked today in the flikr account, and somehow only 3 of them made it in the official entry page.  I don't know what I missed, but here is one card that didn't upload for some reason. 

I don't think the card is a fail, though. :)

I tried highlighting the sentiment on the vellum by threading the ribbon through slits in the frame.  I like how it turned out.  The frame itself is embossed in super sparkly powder, but it didn't photograph well.

Paper: PTI White, Sweet Blush, Winter Wisteria, Vellum
Ink: Versamark, Versafine Onyx
Stamps: PTI Pretty Peonies
Other: PTI white satin ribbon, MS butterfly punch, Zing silver EP, PTI Sunshine Impression plate, Perfect Pearls mist, dimensional tape

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.
