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.

Hello again!

Hello again, everyone!  It has been a long time since this little blog of mine has seen any love from me, but I thought I'd start 'er up again and see how it goes.  Here's a card that sums up how I feel in general, which seems to be a good way to get back into this blogging thing...

Concord & 9th has quickly become one of my favorite stamp companies.  They are very clever with their dies and coordinating stamp sets, and this one is no exception.  It's a frame die that has interchangeable companion dies, and they are brilliant.  This combination is the Happy Card Frame Die with the Kind Card Frame Add-On.  Sentiment is from the Kindhearted stamp set.
