Grandma's cards-Girl

Here is another card in the Grandma's birthday stash.  Grandma has 29 grandchildren--11 girls and 18 boys.  No, I'm not kidding.

I reversed the Swiss Dots-embossed panel, and I like it.  I also saved another paper cutting step by flipping the inside frame upside down so the white would show instead of the pattern.

Paper: PTI White, Lemon Tart, Aqua Mist pattern-gingham
Ink: PTI Hibiscus Burst
Stamps: PTI Pretty Peonies
Other: Fabulous Frames dies, Pretty Peonies dies, Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder

  2. Very pretty!! I like the reverse embossing, it looks cool!

  3. Love this girl card Cheryl. So pretty and feminine. Like your use of the Pretty Peonies dies without using the peonies!

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.
