Just got a new impression plate from Taylored Expressions--Damask/Houndstooth.  Love it!  I'm very picky about my damask patterns, so when I find one I like, I grab it.

This first card is for my friend who just got married.  SO happy for her!

This second card is a replica of a set I made for my friend but was too rushed to take pics, so I made one later with my initial. :)

This last one is an attempt at a faux letterpress--I brayered ink onto the IP, then ran it through my Cuttlebug. I really like how it turned out!  Sometimes I have trouble with the ink getting in the wrong places on the IP, but this one was great.

Paper: PTI White, Blueberry Sky
Ink: PTI Blueberry Sky, Versamark, Versafine Onyx
Stamps: PTI Ambassador Monogram, Piece of Cake
Other: Taylored Expressions IP, PTI Blueberry Sky ribbon, Clear and Simple Stamps A Gray-cious Host ribbon, Cuttlebug slide dies, 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.
