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


  1. Gorgeous card, Cheryl!! Love how you used the Anniversary set over the dark background! Great interpretation of the art work!!

  2. This is gorgeous!! I, too, love the anniversary set used in this challenge. Love those aqua flowers!

  3. Loving your bold and beautiful card! The blooms look amazing against the dark background! Wonderful card,Cheryl!!!!!

  4. I don't think your card could get any better! Fabulous pattern and layout of flowers. Like I said, fabulous!!!

  5. Oh, I love this, Cheryl, and didn't think to use Painted Petals. Now I have more great ideas to try. Your tucked-in sentiment strip looks perfect as doesn't take away from your beautiful background.

  6. WOW...this is absolutely GORGEOUS Cheryl! Absolute it!! :0)

  7. Love it!! Great combination of techniques and beautiful card!

  8. Lovely card and great take on the inspiration photos!!

  9. This is gorgeous, Cheryl! I love it!

  10. Really lovely, totally captured your inspiration pieces!

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.

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.
