We Heart You CFC88

Alrighty, I'm doing triple duty with this card today, which is a good thing, because although it looks pretty clean and simple, it took me a really long time.  Well, that's not saying much.  I'm a slow crafter anyway.

First up is the CAS-ual Fridays challenge to use lettering.


Next up we have the Online Card Class (Clean and Simple 2) Bonus Day 1-Die Cutting

And finally, we have today's Papertrey Make It Monday #103-Double Die Cutting.

Tired yet?  I die cut these heart tags from PTI's Tremendous Tags die, then die cut them again with the Block Alphabet dies.  I adhered the red paper behind, and then decided to glitter the hearts.  Backwards, I know.    I colored those small hearts with my Copic marker to match, and threaded some twine through the tags.  And no stamps.  Weird.

Paper: PTI White, Sweet Blush polka dot, SU Cherry Cobbler
Dies: PTI Tremendous Tags, Block Alphabet
Other: Glitter Ritz Warm Highlight glitter, Prima rhinestone hearts, Copic marker, dimensional tape, twine

Hello, friends!  So glad you're here, hopping with us.  (Go here to see the full blog hop order.)  I am excited to show you this brand new stamp from Lil' Inker Designs, which is part of their May Mini Release.  Leave comments on any of the blogs in this hop to enter to win one of the new stamp sets, the new cover plate, or the angel pets goodies!  Details on the Lil' Inker Designs Blog.

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…

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.
