Papertrey Ink Blog Hop

It's time for another blog hop with Papertrey Ink!  This month, Nichole shared this lovely art by Izziyana Suhaimi.  It's a combination of pencil drawings and embroidery, so amazing!

I used two different shades of grey cardstock and some embroidery floss on my card...

Stamped floral images from last year's anniversary set Petite Pots with Versamark then heat embossed with white powder.  Added rainbow colored french knots to the centers with embroidery floss.

Stamped the little bird from Petite Pots and added a black french knot eye.  The sentiment is stamped on vellum and wrapped around the front.

What a fun challenge, can't wait to visit this month's gallery!!

Chalkboard Sketch

I got to play along with CAS(E) This Sketch this week!

The dotted line made me think of a school-themed card.  This one uses some old images from AMuse Studio and a sentiment from Hampton Arts.

The ruler was stamped on some gold woodgrain paper and the sentiment and dotted line were heat-embossed in white.

I stamped the alphabet on denim paper hearts that I cut with a PTI die.  The apple is stamped on PTI's white linen paper so the texture showed right through!

So much fun!  Thanks for stopping by!

Bird-day Sketch

A fun and sunny sketch this week at Freshly Made Sketches by Kim Singdahlsen!

 I flipped the sketch so I could use my word bubble die from Lawn Fawn, and these sweet birdies...

I used the picket fence die, woodgrain impression plate, Headline Alphabet dies, and Petite Pots stamps and dies from PTI.  The "happy birthday" is from Waltzingmouse Stamps.  The paper is American Crafts "Hip Hip Hooray."   Perfect for a spring birthday :).
