Bats About You


Hi Friends and Stampers,

I hope you are having a great Holly-Day today.  Currently we are in San Diego!  Whoo Hoo.  For today's inspiration I have a cute and simple card.


This stamp set and the matching dies will be in the store soon!  I gotta tell you, I got real used to the matching dies that goes with each set and I actually had to hand fussy cut this bat myself, lol.  I colored him up with my Copic Markers and added some googlie eyes to him, lol.  At first I inked up the sentiment with black and then again with white ink.  

Laura's father-in-law continues to do not do so well, so we appreciate your patience and understanding. Laura will be answering emails and shipping out more orders as soon as she can.   This is a very hard time for her family right now.  Our prayers go out to her and her family.  Especially her husband, Tim. 

I hope you have had a chance to play in our current challenge, two or more pattern papers.  Tomorrow is a brand new challenge, so be sure to check it out!

Thanks so much for checking in on us,

Holly

You are One of My Favorite Things!


Happy Saturday All!!  It's Marcy here today to share some inspiration with you!  Hope everyone has had a great week and that some of you will have a chance to enjoy the Labor Day Holiday on Monday.     Between work and the first week of school, it's been such a hectic week for me so I welcome this long weekend and hope that I can find some time to relax and hopefully get some extra crafting time in!

So here's the card I've made for today...


If you follow my blog, you might have noticed that I've been making a lot of backgrounds for my cards lately and having a lot of fun doing so!  There are so many technique out there and I want to try all of them!!! LOL  This is one of my favorites which is using a background stamp with some embossing and then adding distress inks and water for some great water color effects.  For my card, I also added some glimmer mist to give it some shimmer which is so pretty!  I just love the vibrant colors and the sparkle on this background!  The sentiment is from MFT's Polka Dot Greetings and this was stamped onto the background using Versamark Ink  and some black sparkling embossing powder by Ranger.   To finish off my card, I added some beautiful Wild Orchid Crafts flowers, some pink jute rope and sequins.

Here are the Supplies Used:
Polka Dot Greetings - My Favorite Things
Spiced Marmalade - Tim Holtz Distress Ink
Peacock Feathers -Tim Holtz Distress Ink
Picked Raspberries - TIm Holtz Distress Ink
Black Sparkling Embossing Powder - Ranger

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend!  Don't forget to stop by tomorrow for a new Blog Hop and some amazing projects! :)

Beautiful Prima Clutch

Shanna here with a  fun new creation. It is rather small but was lots of fun.

First I stamped the image. Then I got out my bloom spray and gave a little squeeze for the splatter look. Then I embellished with flowers, leaves, and bling!

I used a stencil to add the beautiful with a Faber-Castell Pitt Pen.


Here is a close up of the flowers and bling. 


Here is the back with just a little splatter. I wasn't sure if I should add something on the back but I think the splatter really makes it awesome. 


Hope you are inspired to play and get some stamping done.

No Fun





Hi Friends and Stampers,

Happy Holly-Day Monday!  I hope you are all doing well.  The kids survived the first week of school, and are off to start their second week!  Before I shove off to work, I  wanted to show you some inspiration.



Sorry about the background on the picture, I have a new-to-me computer and the printer that holds my camera card, isn't hooked up yet.  But actually I am thinking this camera on my IPhone takes better pictures than my camera does anyway, lol.  

I just love the New Birdie Brown Series!  This was so much fun to color.  I decided to keep it clean and simple just to show her off.  The stamp set comes with a few sentiments, like the one shown here.  Again I used the dies for the cut out and then just stamped her on and colored her.  Easy Peasy. 

Don't forget we have a Wings Challenge going on right now and tomorrow we start a brand New Challenge! 


Thanks for checking in on us,

Holly

Sensational Sunday Inspirations + Candy


Hello Friends and Stampers! Welcome to the Sensational Sunday Blog Hop!

Unfortunately Laura and her Husband have a family emergency.  Her father-in-law is dying of terminal cancer.  They are spending every minute they can with him now.  So understandably, emails and orders will be a little backed up.  Laura rushed home today just long enough to get some orders filled for shipping and her daughter will be sending those out on Monday.  On behalf of the Design Team, I am asking for your patients and continued loyal support.  Thank you. 

It is time to see who the lucky person is who is in our drawing for our August Gift voucher this week we are drawing the lucky person from Dangina's Blog.

Wishing You a Beautiful Day!

Hello Friends!!!  It's Marcy here and today I've made a card for some inspiration!

Here it is...


I'm starting to make more cards lately which do not use an image which I color up with my copics!   Don't get me wrong...I still love making those cards but I also love the look of using sentiments and die cuts as focal points too.  So that's where my "mojo" led me today!   This card was made using a few MFT sets.  The first was used to create the pretty rose which I stamped with some bright inks I had in my stash.  This set is called Contemporary Roses by MFT which is a design by Mona Pendleton.  I also used the matching Contemporary Roses Die-Namics to cut out the flowers and leaves.  I went over the rose and leaves with my Wink of Stella in Clear Glitter. You can't see in the photo but there is really pretty shimmer!  The sentiment which is from MFT's Polka Dot Greetings was stamped onto some dp using Versamark Ink  and then I added my favorite black sparkling embossing powder by Ranger.  The pretty papers in the background are called Fabulous by Simple Stories.  

Here are the Supplies Used:
Contemporary Roses - My Favorite Things
Contemporary Roses Die-Namics - My Favorite Things
Polka Dot Greetings - My Favorite Things
Fabulous - Simple Stories
Black Tuxedo - Memento Ink
Black Sparkling Embossing Powder - Ranger
Enamel Dots - My Mind's Eye
Wink of Stella - Glitter Clear

Thanks so much for stopping by and don't forget we have a fun blog hop tomorrow!
