Also - I wanted to post that my nephew Dawson is in the JROTC program this year. His group is holding a fundraiser for the Wounded Warrier Foundation. 100% of the money they raise goes towards helping wounded military members and their families in their time of need. It is an amazing program. If you would like to help here is a link to his fundraising page! Every little bit helps :)

Water Coloring with Distress Inks


Hello and Happy Saturday!  Marcy here to share a super fun card I made for today's inspiration!

Here is my card...


  Today, I was feeling in the mood to take out my favorite distress inks to play a little.  I used one of my favorite background stamps, embossed the image and then added my Tim Holtz distress inks for some vibrant color.  I then sprayed some clear glimmer mist over my creation to give it the water color effect.   For the roses, I did the same technique using this beautiful stamp set called "Contemporary Roses" from My Favorite Things.  I'm definitely getting a lot of use out of this stamp set lately!  It is just so perfect for mixed media and water coloring which I love to do!  To finish off my card, I added some pink rhinestones and sequins from my stash.  I really love how colorful this card looks and just loving the Tim Holtz distress inks which are so versatile to use!

Here are the Supplies Used:
Contemporary Roses - My Favorite Things
Spiced Marmalade - Tim Holtz Distress Ink
Peacock Feathers -Tim Holtz Distress Ink
Picked Raspberries - TIm Holtz Distress Ink

Have a wonderful Saturday and see all you next week!

Hugs,
Marcy

Have a Magical Day!


Hello Friends and Happy Saturday!  It's Marcy here today for a card share!  I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend.  I've been feeling a little under the weather and I know it's from my household passing around colds along with the stress of busy hectic schedules the last few weeks.  I'm hoping to get some rest and relaxation this weekend.  Some of you may know that I love fairy and mermaid images!  So to make me feel better, I decided to create a card using a favorite theme!

Here's my card


The sweet fairy on my card is an image from the Pure Innocence collection by My Favorite Things called "Fairy Girl".  She's always been one of my fav images from this collection so I couldn't wait to create a card with her!  I colored up this cute gal with my copics and then decided to paper piece her dress which always looks so cute on these images!  The pretty papers I used are from My Mind's Eye called "Cambridge Court".   To finish off my card, I added some beautiful Wild Orchid Crafts flowers and some sequins.

Here are the Supplies Used:
Fairy Girl - My Favorite Things
Cambridge Court - My Mind's Eye
Peacock Feathers -Tim Holtz Distress Ink
Tuxedo Black - Memento

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend!  We have a fun blog hop starting tomorrow so be sure to check back!

Hugs,
Marcy

May You Be Happy

Good morning and new day.

Shanna here to share a fun and easy card to make. 
 I should start sharing some Halloween projects soon. But before I get to those I have another quick card to share. I love adding twine and jute string to projects. It adds such quick pizzazz to everything. 


I love this stamp set. It comes with so many different sayings. You should totally get this stamp set and make some HAPPY cards.

Don't Be Afraid to Sparkle

Hi everyone. Shanna here with a quick card. I love this stamp set it is so inspirational and amazing to brighten anyones day! Of course I made it girly. I am not sure men go around telling each other to sparkle lol.


I used some vellum, embossed the Sparkle on it, and cut it out using a spellbinder die. 

 I will ask is there a glue out there not visible under vellum?


I also used the die to cut out my own sequins.
