Papertrey Ink February Blog Hop- Monograms

This post is for Papertrey Ink's Monogram challenge and indeed a challenge it was. I decided to make mini 4 1/4 squared monogrammed notecards. I stamped and white heat embossed using a Hero Arts background stamp. Then, I attached a white ribbon, heat embossed with Hero Arts Holographic embossing powder using a stamp from the Mazal Tov PTI stamp set and then overlayed my initials. It was a struggle but I hope you nonetheless enjoy!

Craft on!

Luck o' the Irish

A few more St. Patrick's Day Cards today. These were primarily done with patterned paper and my own hand calligraphy using the lovely Pilot Parallel pens, with the exception of the mini Hero Arts shamrock stamp used in the background.
Enjoy and craft on!

Shamrocks and Green!

Chances are if you are not Irish, you probably know many and get swept up in the St. Patrick's Day fun. Here are some deliciously green cards for the little leprechauns in us all!  :)

More to come in the next few days!

Craft on!

I realize Valentine's day is fast approaching and my card series simply halted! I, believe it or not, lost my camera that contained all the pictures, gasp. But now I'm back in business and ready to post a few cards as a peace offering. :-)

The first one is another "Love Monster" easel card, designed with kids or the young at heart in mind. They are a bit whimsical and oh so fun! The patterned paper is My Mind's Eye. Then, the other easel card that has "Mr. And Mrs" on the easel part was designed for my in-laws who are newlyweds. It is their first Valentine's Day as Mr. and Mrs. so I wanted a small card to commemorate that. The last one says "All you need is...chocolate". The chocolate was handwritten with Dong A Miffy popcorn pens. When you heat them up they literally poof up! So much fun. :)

Stay calm and craft on!
