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

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.
