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

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.
