Online Card Class Day 1

At the last minute I decided to take this Online Card Class.  It's my third, and they are always wonderful!  

Here's my Day 1 card, based on a sketch by Kristina Werner.  I think it will be a great go-to sketch for masculine cards.  Partially die cut a shape at the edge of the card, stamp on the card base, add a little flagged sentiment, and voila!

Paper: PTI White, New Leaf Stripes PP, SU Cajun Craze
Ink: PTI Blueberry Sky, Versamark
Stamps: MFT Gift Card Greetings, PTI Tweet Talk
Other: Circle Nesties, square punch for flag end, white Filigree EP, 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.
