Love Stories


Hi Everyone,

It's a Holly-Day Monday, time to show you some Inspiration.   Did you enjoy the blog hop here yesterday?  Didn't know about it?  Scroll down and  read about how Laura is giving away a $20.00 gift voucher each month!  It's also the last day to play in the "B" Challenge for other prizes.

Here is my inspiration today.


I'm on a bit of a count down for Super Bowl Sunday.  This has been a bit of football withdrawl for me, but nothing compared to waiting for foot ball season again, lol.   It will be good for me not to be tied up in 3+ hour games, lol.   Plus I will have more time to spend on other things, like my New Years Resolutions.  Yeah, how are those coming for you?  I'm doing okay, 24/30 days done on my 30 min for 30 days challenge.   But about that scrap page layout each month, lol.  I still have time!!! lol.  

Anyway, I hope you have been inspired to create something fabulous and I hope to see you for tomorrow's challenge as well....

Thanks for popping in, 

Holly

One of the Design Team posts is the hop's Sensational Sunday Sweet Spot and a name will be drawn from that list of comments to be in a monthly drawing for a $20 Loves Rubberstamps Gift Voucher! We will draw the winner of the Voucher the 1st Sunday of each month from all the comments left on the design team blogs! Remember, you have until 8:00 pm CST Saturday to leave your comments!

Hope you are all having a great weekend so far! I haven't felt very well this week so I have been doing a lot of resting. I am hoping that sometime this week I will be able to take a few pictures of my stamping studio to share how that is coming along. I am in the very early stages of starting to move stuff in it and organize. I have a lot of ideas but not sure exactly how I want to do things yet. I guess a craft room is like a never ending project and trying things and seeing how it works for you. 

For today's project I wanted to share Lydia's super cute CAS card that she created for this week's Loves Rubberstamps Challenge of using things with the Letter "B". 



I thought this was such a cute idea to paper piece patterned papers for these cute little bunnies. Really gives it a vintage, shabby look with these colors and the pattern and makes them pop! Such a sweet design that would make a quick card when your short on crafty time!

Here are the products used on Lydia's card...


Now let's hop along and see what the Design Team ladies have in store for you...

Love You Always!

Hello Friends and Happy Saturday!  It's Marcy here and I have a fun Valentine's Day card to share with you all for today's Inspiration Day!

Here is my card...


So my inspiration came from a card by Kristina Werner in which she made a background by water coloring with distress inks.  You can find her beautiful card here!  I just have so much fun water coloring and am loving all the great techniques I'm seeing out there.   I took some Tim Holtz water color paper (Oh no, my last piece!) and then added lots of water and some fun Tim Holtz distress inks in shades of pinks and purples.  And voila... a fun and pretty cool looking background!!!  The adorable image on my card is by Tiddly Inks called Friends are Flowers.  I had so much fun coloring up cute Wryn with my Copics.  I also added some polka dots to her dress with my white gel pen and then Wink of Stella all over her outfit  and heart flowers.  The sentiment was stamped onto my paper using Versamark Ink and then embossed with some white embossing powder from my stash.  Of course, I couldn't resist scattering some sequins all over my card!

Here is the full supply list for my card:
Friends are Flowers - Tiddly Inks
Seedless Preserves - Tim Holtz distress ink
Picked Raspberry - Tim Holtz distress ink
Spun Sugar - Tim Holtz distress ink
Shaded Lilac - Tim Holtz distress ink
Water Color paper - Tim Holtz
Black Tuxedo - Memento Ink

Hope my card gives you some inspiration to try some water coloring and playing with distress inks!

Enjoy your weekend and thanks so much for stopping by!

Hugs,
Marcy

Valentine's Cards

Good morning to you all. Shanna here with some fun and simple cards. 

I decided to share some fun cards I made using the newest release from SugarPea Designs. 


For my first card I used a couple different stamps. I did fussy cut the shovel out and paired it with the sentiment "I dig you" along with the heart stamp that looks like washi tape. 


For my second card I kept it single layered as well. 


Thank you so much or stopping by.

I heart my puppy


Hi Friends and Stampers,

Happy Monday Holly-Day!

Today I have used a cute new MFT Birdie Brown set that is coming to the store soon.
MFT Birdie Brown - You Have My Heart
MME 6X6 - Cupids Arrow

OMGosh I just love this set of stamps!  They are total cuteness.  And I do love all three of my puppies, lol.  Archie Bunker, Lucky Day and Kracken Up AKA Fatso.  So I can't wait to play some more with them....maybe even do a scrap page layout with them as well.  I did make this for someone in mind though, who is crazy about her dog and has been especially awesome lately, so I cannot wait to give it to her.  

I colored this image up with Copics and dusted off the air brush machine for the air and grass.  I also colored the grass die cut.   

Thanks so much for checking in on me.
